Whether you have a big birthday on the horizon or just want to glam up your eyes for a night out, use any one of these five foolproof methods to take your lashes to whole new heights.
Falsies are a no-brainer when it comes to seriously lengthening your lashes! Play up your peepers à la Katy Perry with her star-worthy collection of party lashes by Eylure, available at Kohl’s. (Kohls, $8)
They’re absolutely perfect for amping up the drama. To slightly accentuate what you have already, experiment with Eylure Naturalites, also available in the same store. (Kohls, $6)
Looking for a longer lasting option? Obviously, you can’t go wrong with a pair of Velour mink lashes, spotted on chic celebs like Beyoncé, Jessica Alba and Nina Dobrev. "They can be worn up to 25 times and have a lightweight, feathery look,” notes Velour lashes co-founder Angela Tran. "If you want a lot of length, we recommend a 'winged' style that gradually gets longer towards the outer corner of the eye." (Velourlashes.com, $30 to $50)
A lengthening and volumizing mascara
According to Liv Contreras, co-owner of Lashfully, you should always shop for a creamier brand of mascara and apply starting as close to the base of your lash line as possible. "Wiggle upward. Then once you’re done, take a lash comb and brush the top quarter of your lashes to elongate them,” she advises. Personally, we’re obsessed with Too Faced's Better than False Lashes, which creates a 98 percent increase in lash volume and a 42 percent increase in length. Gotta love that! (Toofaced.com, $35)
