False eyelashes are fun, but you can rev up your lashes with easy, everyday solutions. Here are four ways you can ditch the falsies and still look foxy.
Curling your lashes opens your eyes and makes them seem bigger, friendlier, and sexier. To get maximum results, warm your metal eyelash curler with a blowdryer. Be careful not to make it hot ... the skin around the eye is delicate. Curl your lashes in three places: the base of your eyelashes; the middle; and the tips. This will give you a gentle curve that looks more natural than one big bend.
Make lashes look more dense. Place wand at the base of your lashes and gently wiggle the wand back and forth before you sweep on the first coat of mascara. This trick gives the illusion of more lashes, giving drama to your eyes.
Find all your lashes. That’s right -- most women miss many of their lashes, making their eyes look smaller. Use the tip of the mascara wand to get those inner and outer corners of your eyes. Both top and bottom lids have a dense grouping of lashes there that are almost invisible because they are lighter in colour and finer in texture than the rest of the eyelashes. Spend time getting every one. It’s worth it -- especially when you see the cat-like, flirt-inspiring results.
Lengthen and thicken your lashes with thin, but multi, layers. Many thin layers looks more natural than one or two thick ones. To get thin layers, lightly blot the wand with kleenex before you apply the mascara. Swipe your lashes from base to tips two times, letting them dry in between applications. Coat one to two more times, but this time only on the last 1/4 of the length and on outer corner of eyelashes on the top lid.
Now you have it. Great frames for your beautiful eyes and a flash of flirt with every blink.
