Curl Your Lashes

Don't forget to curl your lashes before you do anything else! Some mascara wands luckily do this for you, but it never hurts to give your eyelashes a little extra umph! This trick for fuller lashes is fool-proof and used by women around the world for a reason!


Starting with a lash curler wakes up your eyes and creates the perfect foundation for voluminous lashes. Invest in a good quality eyelash curler and remember to replace the pad regularly to avoid any lash damage. For an even more dramatic effect, heat your lash curler with a blow dryer for a few seconds before using it—just be sure to test the temperature on your hand first to avoid burns. The warmth helps to lock in the curl for a longer-lasting lift.


Clear Primer

One great mascara trick for fuller lashes that I learned when I was looking for a way to get my lashes super thick is by using some clear mascara primer. Before you put on any powder or any mascara, just make sure that you that you are slipping into some clear primer!


Clear mascara primer is a great way to get fuller-looking eyelashes. It can be used on its own for a natural look or as a base for powder and mascara. When used as a base, it helps to hold the powder and mascara in place for a longer lasting look.

Clear mascara primer is easy to apply. First, use an eyelash brush to brush your lashes from root to tip. Then, apply a thin layer of the primer to your upper and lower eyelashes. Allow the primer to dry for a few seconds before applying powder or mascara.

When applying powder, use a small brush to apply it from the roots of your eyelashes to the tips. Use a light hand and make sure to avoid clumping. Once the powder is applied, use your eyelash brush to comb through your lashes and evenly distribute the powder.

After applying powder, use a mascara wand to coat your eyelashes with mascara. Start at the roots and wiggle the wand as you work your way up to the tips. This will help to separate and coat each individual lash for a fuller look.


Powder on Lashes

I actually had no idea that putting a bit of powder on your lashes before you put on your mascara can make your lashes look totally plump and oh-so-full! Just a dusting of baby powder, a few coats of mascara and this mascara trick will give you lashes that every single woman in the world wants! Give it a try girls!


This trick is perfect for those who want to achieve a dramatic, voluminous look. The powder helps to coat and separate your lashes, making them look fuller and thicker. It also helps your mascara adhere better and last longer, so you don’t have to worry about smudging or clumping. All you need is a brush, baby powder, and your favorite mascara. Simply brush a light layer of powder on your lashes before applying mascara. Then, apply multiple coats of mascara until you reach your desired look. With this trick, you can have gorgeous, full lashes in no time!



Tightlining is a really helpful technique for making your eyelashes appear fuller. Tightlining requires putting eyeliner in between your lashes on the upper waterline. It may be a little bit uncomfortable at first, but it is oh-so-worth it! Tightlining adds extra depth and definition to your eyelashes, before you even apply any mascara!


Tightlining is a great way to achieve fuller-looking eyelashes without having to use a lot of mascara. It is a technique that involves applying eyeliner to the upper waterline, between the lashes. It can be a bit uncomfortable at first, but the results are worth it! When done correctly, tightlining adds more definition and depth to your lashes.

When tightlining, it is important to use an eyeliner that is smudge-proof and waterproof. This will ensure that the eyeliner does not run or transfer onto the eyelids. It is also important to use a thin eyeliner brush to apply the eyeliner. This will help to create a more natural look and will make it easier to get between the lashes.

To achieve the best results, it is important to take your time when tightlining. Start by applying the eyeliner to the inner corner of your eye and then slowly work your way outwards. Make sure to get between each lash and to follow the natural curve of your eye.


Multiple Coats of Mascara

One surefire mascara trick for fuller lashes is to apply two or more coats of mascara! Now, you want to apply the mascara when the first coat is still wet. The reasoning for that is because you don't want your lashes to look 'spidery', instead you want them to be plush, to be clean, to be long and full.


When layering your mascara, start with a volumizing formula to thicken lashes, followed by a lengthening mascara to extend them. Wiggle the wand at the base of your lashes to deposit more product for an eye-opening effect. Be mindful, though—that second or third coat should be done before the previous layer dries to prevent clumps and maintain that seamless, fluttery look. You can also use a lash comb to separate and define each lash in between coats for a truly enchanting gaze.


'Minking' Technique

You might not have heard about this particular mascara trick, but it's been used forever! 'Minking' is all about using two different colors of mascara to make your lashes appear much thicker and fuller! For example, brown and black! All you do is use brown mascara first, then mink it with the black! It'll give your lashes dimension and make them look so pretty!


Minking is a simple and effective technique for creating fuller and thicker looking eyelashes. It involves using two different colors of mascara, typically brown and black. The trick is to apply the brown mascara first, and then layer the black mascara on top. This creates a dimensional look that will make your lashes look thicker and fuller.

Minking is great for those who want to add some extra volume to their lashes without having to use false eyelashes or extensions. It's also a great way to add a bit of drama to your look without having to use a lot of product. You can also use different colors of mascara to create different looks. For example, you could use a navy blue mascara on the tips of your lashes for a more subtle look.

Minking is a great way to get fuller-looking eyelashes without having to spend a lot of time or money. It's also a great way to add some extra flair to your look without having to put a lot of effort into it. Plus, you can easily change up your look by simply switching up the colors of mascara you use.


Apply Mascara on the Top

Close your eyes and guide your mascara brush on top of your lashes. This is a technique I didn't try for a long time, but once I did I couldn't believe I had ever lived without it! You need to get at your lashes from every angle to make sure they're as full and luscious as possible!


One of the key steps in achieving fuller-looking eyelashes is to apply mascara on the top lashes. This technique involves closing your eyes and using your mascara brush to coat the top lashes from every angle. By doing so, you ensure that each lash is fully coated, resulting in a more voluminous look. This technique may seem simple, but it can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your lashes. Additionally, using a mascara with a curved or angled brush can help to reach the smaller and harder-to-reach lashes on the inner and outer corners of your eyes. This will further enhance the fullness of your lashes and give them a more dramatic look.


Apply Mascara on the Underside

Another mascara trick that I use all of the time to really make my lashes look full and thick is applying the mascara to the underside of my lashes. It'll draw your eyelashes out a little bit and make them appear so much longer and fuller! After putting it on the tops of your lashes, go underneath and wriggle your wand a little bit to curl, thicken, and lengthen at the same time!


To ensure you're coating the entire lash, gently lift your eyelid to expose the base of your lashes. Start at the roots and gently jiggle the mascara wand back and forth as you move towards the tips. This technique not only ensures that every lash is well-covered but also helps encourage a natural curl. Remember to avoid letting the mascara dry between coats—two quick sweeps are usually better than one slow, drying pass. If you accidentally get a bit on your skin, a cotton swab dipped in makeup remover will clean it right up without smudging your handiwork.


Zig-Zag Your Wand

How often do you just apply your lashes with the tip of the eyelash brush? I do it all of the time, but it doesn't make my eyelashes look full. Instead, why not go with a zig-zag motion with your brush and really make sure that each and every lash is coated up and looks beautiful!


By employing the zig-zag technique, you're not just hitting the top layer of lashes, you're weaving the mascara in between layers, dramatically amplifying volume and separation. It's like backcombing your hair for that extra oomph; except this time, it's for your eyelashes. Start at the base and wiggle the wand up to the tips. The wiggle motion deposits more mascara at the roots, creating the illusion of a thicker lash line. Trust me, it's a game-changer – your lashes will never look the same again!



While you are zig-zagging your wand, also blink! Blinking can coat your eyelashes wicked easily and can make sure that even the small, tiny lashes get coated! For me, what I do is I blink, zig-zag and then blink again. This makes sure that my eyelashes are getting the fullest amount of mascara!


Don't Forget about the Corners!

The outer corners of your eyelashes are what really open up your eyes and give you that stunning doe-eyed look! To really make the most out of the few lashes around the edges, turn your wand vertically and brush your lashes upward until they reach the desired thickness.


Make sure to wiggle the wand at the base of these corner lashes to add volume right from the roots. If your mascara tends to clump, use a clean spoolie or an eyelash comb to gently separate the lashes, ensuring each one is coated and defined. A tiny bit of extra mascara on the outer corners can create a lovely fanned-out effect, enhancing the natural curve of your lash line. So, always give those corners a little extra love and attention for that perfect, fluttery finish.


Comb It out

Always make sure you have an eyelash comb handy when doing your makeup. You should comb out your lashes before and after you apply your mascara. Doing so beforehand will separate your lashes so that they don't clump together when you apply several coats of mascara, while combing them afterward will get rid of any clumps that have formed! Even though technically combing your eyelashes clears away some mascara, it creates a cleaner, more attractive look while maintaining fullness.


If you don't have a specific eyelash comb, a clean mascara wand or a fine-toothed eyebrow brush can be a good alternative. Gently run it through your lashes to avoid breakage. Pro tip: for an even application of mascara and to maximize each lash's potential, wiggle the comb or brush at the base of your eyelashes before sweeping upward. This technique not only separates them but also gives your lashes a little lift at the root, creating an illusion of extra volume and length. Remember to clean your lash tool regularly to prevent bacteria buildup and ensure the best results.


Winged Eyeliner

Winged eyeliner can contribute to the illusion of fuller eyelashes. Winged eyeliner virtually extends your lashline and follows your lashes like a shadow. From a distance, people won’t notice the liner, but rather they’ll just think your eyelashes will look extremely thick, long, and gorgeous!


Achieving the perfect winged eyeliner look takes a little practice but the payoff is worth it. Start by tracing a thin line from the inner corner of your eye and gradually thicken it as you reach the outer corner. Extend the line slightly upwards at the edge to create the wing—mimicking the natural upwards curve of your lashes. Pro tip: use a liquid eyeliner with a precision tip for a smoother application. Don't forget that a sharp wing adds an extra punch to the illusion of voluminous lashes, giving your eyes a dramatic and enchanting look that holds attention.



There's nothing wrong with wearing false eyelashes. Wearing false eyelashes means not having to scrub mascara off your eyes each night as well as longer, fuller lashes. The key to pulling off false eyelashes is choosing ones that look relatively natural, then going over them with mascara to provide them with extra fullness!


When applying falsies, make sure the lash band is flexible and matches your eye shape for comfort and a seamless look. Trim the lashes if necessary so they don't extend beyond your natural lash line, which can cause them to look unnatural. A fine line of eyelash glue applied to the band, allowed to become tacky for about 30 seconds, ensures a strong hold. Always remember to gently remove them at the end of the day, and clean the adhesive off so they're ready for your next glamorous occasion. With proper care, a good pair of falsies can be reused multiple times, making them a cost-effective option for anyone looking to enhance their eye look.


Condition over Night

As part of your nightly routine, or whenever you get the chance to give your eyelashes some extra TLC, condition your eyelashes. You can use a mascara wand dipped in almond or extra virgin olive oil to strengthen and beautify your lashes.

So girls, there are all of my top tricks for fuller lashes that really work! What other eye makeup tricks for lashes do you have to share?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I tried Zig-zagging, but then my lashes snarls, gets into tufts and I end up even with more terrible lashes. Also, I loved Stiletto, but not it's brush - it also tangles my lashes a bit.Maybe a problem is that my top lashes are quite long anyway, and mostly needs a bit thickness and color, whereas bottom lashes are quite sparse, and needs an increased density :/

when you say powder do you mean baby powder or just like loose powder??

What do you mean when u say "zigzag your brush"?????

I almost forgot I do that until I read this! For bottom lashes, I use the brush vertically (because that\'s where there\'s the most product) and coat the lashes from outer corner to inner corner, but don\'t let it dry! Then use the brush normally (horizontally) and wiggle the brush side to side at the base of the lash, then pull downward to the ends. It works every time

Using two colors is a great idea, but even using two different kinds of mascara helps! Also curling your eyelashes first, using liquid eyeliner to get in between lashes, and looking down into a mirror on a table while applying mascara.

I think I will try the powder. Hope it works!
