Long lashes are the envy of many people, but not everyone is blessed with them. Luckily, there are lots of ways of making your lashes look longer. Keep on reading and discover of the most effective, mind-blowing trick to achieve the desired look for extra long, flawless eyelashes! This is a trick you can use on a daily basis whenever you put your favourite mascara on! You will be amazed by the final result!
Growing long lashes is not easy but definitely not impossible! Growing eyelashes starts with hygiene. You want to remove grease, dust, or makeup that clogs your eye-lash follicles. Both castor and olive oils are well known natural remedies that can do wonders for growing your eyelashes. They are rich sources of nutrients and contain beneficial antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. How to apply them: use a clean mascara brush and gently apply the oil on your lashes before you go to bed. Leave it on overnight, and then rinse it off with warm water in the morning. This should be your first step to enjoy thicker lashes. Lemons, and especially their peels, have many nourishing elements like vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, and folic acid that promote the growth of eyelashes. Cut a piece of lemon peel and place it in a bowl. Pour some olive or castor oil into the bowl until the lemon peel gets soaked. Allow it to sit for at least two weeks for the oil to get infused with the qualities of the lemon. Grab a clean mascara stick and apply the lemon-infused oil on your eyelashes before going to sleep. Wash it off with water the next morning.
Another trick that can help you grow lustrous and voluminous lashes is to use petroleum jelly. How it works: put a few drops of petroleum jelly on a new mascara wand. Sleep with the petroleum jelly on your eyelashes and rinse it in the morning. The jelly will moisturize the eye lashes and prevent any dryness. Chilled green tea is another great method to make your eyelashes longer and thicker. Only in this case, you won’t drink it. Simply use a cotton swab to apply cool, unsweetened green tea on your lashes. Leave it on for several hours and then rinse with water. Massaging your eyelids increases blood flow, helps in better eyelash growth and prevents breakage of your lashes. For best results, gently massage your eyelids and lash line at least once a day. Just like the way trimming can make your hair grow faster on your head, trimming your eyelashes can also help in growing longer lashes. Use a cuticle scissors and carefully trim the tip of your eyelashes to help stimulate the follicles and help in growing the lashes back.
Before you begin your application, it is important to prepare your face and eyes. Always start off with clean face by removing all traces of old makeup. Apply a single coat of your favourite mascara. Do not try to make the lashes perfectly separated or coated with mascara. Tap some baby powder on smooth surface or into the palm of your hand. Then, use the clean mascara brush to dip into the powder dust. Gently apply it on your lashes, making sure that every small hair is coated with a light layer. This will add major length, thickness and volume to your lashes! Then, apply your black mascara on your lashes from roots to tips. After you apply mascara, your lashes may start to clump so separate them with an eyelash comb or clean toothbrush. The bristles will grab the excess mascara and leave you with clump-free lashes. Seal your mascara with a second coat. You can also run an eyelash brush gently through the lashes. As you can see longer and fuller lashes within seconds! If you are not a big fan of false lashes, then this baby powder trick is the best choice for you.
If you want to have long lashes immediately, consider applying false ones. If you’re in love with a pair of full strip lashes but can’t seem to get them on correctly, try cutting them up a bit so they can be the ideal length. To apply them correctly, place the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close as possible to your natural lashes. Allow the glue to dry naturally. Aim for the base of your natural lash line, right on top of your real lashes. Last but not least, apply black mascara on both your top and bottom lashes to achieve more natural look by blending your natural lashes with the false ones
