Longer eyelashes are the way to go this season, girls, and finding the right ways to make eyelashes look longer isn't ever easy! If you've tried every single thing to lengthen your eyelashes and are looking for the tips to help you get fuller eyelashes, I've got them for you! I've compiled everything from 'minking' all the way to knowing exactly what mascara brush you need to get longer eyelashes.
1. Add Powder to Your Lashes before Mascara
By far, one of the greatest ways to make eyelashes look longer and be more plush is by adding a bit of powder to the lashes, before you've applied your mascara. What this does is actually make your lashes super lush, totally plush and thick. It also makes the mascara stay on a little bit longer without clumping!
2. Add a Different Color to the Tips
This 'minking' technique is used by the pros all of the time! You ready to hear it? All you do to get fuller eyelashes is coat your lashes in black, then use a dark brown along the tips and then coat them in black again. This absolutely will make your lashes appear thicker and longer! What could be better?
3. Lengthening Mascara
Personally, this is one of my favorite ways to make eyelashes look longer. For me, I coat my lashes at least a couple times with the lengthening mascara, making sure that I coat every single lash before I move on. It's a great way to make your eyes look bigger and your lashes look longer!
4. Eyelash Curler
Using an eyelash curler is one surefire way to make eyelashes look longer! After one use, you'll see just just how beautiful your eyelashes can really look and just how curly they can be! One tip though, be careful and don't use your eyelash curler every single day – it can cause your eyelashes to break eventually if you use it too often.
5. Start with Clear Mascara
A lot of girls don't know that you can actually do a clear mascara before you place the color that you are using before it. The reason? It causes your lashes to look fuller and longer! It's also a great way to ensure that your lashes are going to stay looking long and fresh!
6. Color Tricks
There are tons of different ways to make eyelashes look longer without a hassle, but did you know you can use colors to actually make your lashes look longer? For example, putting black along the edges lashes and then brown in the middle can make your lashes appear so much longer and thicker!
7. Brush Your Eyelashes
Sounds weird, right? I wouldn't have thought that brushing your lashes would do anything but … pull them out, but that isn't true! In fact, if you brush your lashes, you'll see just how thick, how full and how long they are! What I use for a brush to brush my lashes out is an eyebrow brush. Just be really careful, girls!
8. Take Your Time with the Mascara
I know that running through putting on your makeup is probably a typical routine for you, but take your time with your mascara. When I really take my time and slow everything down, I actually notice that my lashes are so much longer and thicker in the end! Rush through everything else if you have to, just not your eyelashes!
9. Know Your Mascara Brush
Finally girls, the last way to make eyelashes look longer is to actually know the brush that you are working with! Is it silicone, is it clumpy, is it double-sided? There are so many different mascara brushes out there, you've got to find the one that really works for you!
So girls, these are all of my ways to make eyelashes look longer, do you have any other that I haven't covered? Share them! I'm always looking for new tips to make my lashes look long!
