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.
