How to make the most of your eyelashes

How to... Say goodbye to brittle, short lashes!

Unfortunately, not all of us have been blessed with long eyelashes. The struggle to find the perfect mascara or a magical eyelash curler can seem never ending, but what’s a girl to do?

Look no further, because we’re unveiling the best-kept secrets to obtaining the perfect lashes.

Step 1: Utilize growing techniques

Petroleum jelly is the perfect treatment to help make your lashes fuller and longer. This substance is basically like conditioner for your lashes, and by smudging a little on your lashes before bed, you’re giving them a deep conditioning treatment. Simply wash it off in the morning and repeat daily to see new fullness in your lashes.

Step 2: Perfect your curling technique

Creating the perfect curl for difficult lashes can be a daunting task, but do not lose hope! The issue might not be your tool but your technique. Applying a little heat may be the missing element that is keeping you from holding a curl. This Beauty 365 video breaks down the ideal curling technique to leave you with standout lashes.

Step 3: Make falsies your friend

Fake eyelashes may not be the most convenient way to make your lashes look incredible, but they are your best bet for a special occasion. They add a little extra oomph to your look that you just cannot achieve with mascara alone (sad, I know). Although they may seem intimidating, all you have to do is practice your technique a few times (before the day of your event) and your newfound confidence will have you eye-flirting with that hottie across the room in no time.

Step 4: Consider lash extensions

Eyelash extensions are the ideal option for the woman who doesn't have a lot of time in the morning to devote to her eyelashes. Although they do require a steady financial commitment, websites like Groupon often have insane deals that can cut the original price significantly.
