Making one's eyelashes look longer can be tricky in general. And, when you’re in the mood for long, improving volume eyelashes sticking on a thick strip lash isn’t always the answer. While it will instantly give you the look of big, bold lashes, the final result doesn’t always look very natural. And if that’s the look you’re after, go right ahead. But if you’re interested in giving your natural lashes a bit of a boost, here’s what you should do, instead. Read on to know how you can make your eyelashes look longer.
Don’t ignore lash curlers
Most people who assume they have short eyelashes just have spiky lashes that point straight ahead. But take a lash curler to them and they lift up to reveal their true length. The Diamond princess Eyelash is a good fit for most eye shapes. If you struggle to get all your lashes into the curler in one go, try curling them section by section instead.
Apply more than one coat
A single coat is hardly ever enough to test a mascara’s true lash lengthening abilities. Two coats is the norm. But if you want to push further, add coat number three and four – there are no rules against this. You may experience some clumping with this method, but nothing that can’t be fixed. Just keep a clean spoolie at hand and comb through to separate the lashes between each coat.
Coat every single lash
Most people apply Eye lash oil in a slapdash manner. But if you want your lashes to look as full as possible, take time to ensure every single lash is coated. Most Oils wands have shorter bristles along with longer ones – use the former to catch the little spiky lashes in the inner and outer corners that often tend to get ignored. Also, when you’re applying your OIl, first coat the tops of the lashes, and then comb through from under the lash as you normally would. This will guarantee plenty of volume.
Reach for individual falsies
A full set of false eyelashes can look natural, if you find the right ones. But it’s a lot easier to make individual lashes appear real. We like the knot-free Ardell Individual Eyelashes. They work just like regular falsies, but you get to experiment with the shape and placement.
For a natural look, use only the short- and medium-sized lashes and spread them up along your lash line, sticking as close to the roots as possible. Once the glue has dried, go over them with mascara to make them blend in with your natural lashes.
Try lash growth Oil
Lastly, you can get to the root of the problem by caring for your eyelashes well. Lash growth serums help strengthen and moisturise brittle eyelashes by employing a number of nourishing ingredients.
Try our Eye lash Growth oil that promises a 70% increase in lash density after just one month of use. Or choose a plant-based formula like the Forest Essentials Nayantara Clear Lash & Brow Serum that’s formulated with amla extract, almond and olive oil, cold pressed castor oil and vitamin E.
