When you think of makeup, eyelashes are probably not the first thing that come to mind. However, for anyone who has the slightest bit of interest in makeup, they are an essential part of their look and makeup routine.
Long eyelashes are something that makeup wearers want regardless of whether they are going for a no-makeup look or have a bold eye-shadow applied. A lot of people prefer their eyelashes long and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with applying makeup tricks to make your lashes look longer. For those who relate to this problem, there are a few things you can try to make your eyelashes appear longer.
Applying mascara from the tip to the root of your lashes can help them look longer. This can even be done multiple times. Two coats are usually enough as this method lengthens and draws out the lashes, giving you the long eyelashes you want.
Another way is to line your upper waterline with black. This method requires you to apply a black liner to your upper water line, which is the pink part under the lashes. Once the liner has been applied, it is to be smudged into the lash line. For some, the desired effect is more prominent than others but it is one of the most viable ways to make your eyelashes appear longer and thicker.
Curling is another extremely popular method to try, which gives the appearance of larger volume for eyelashes. Curled eyelashes convincingly appear longer as compared to when they are left straight. Even curling small or short lashes can produce a significant difference to the length of your eyelashes. You can also draw a few eyelashes using makeup to make them appear longer and fuller if you do not want to use fake eyelashes.
However, if you want to use fake eyelashes then that is another story altogether. There are multiple options regarding the kind of fake eyelashes you want, depending on your preferred volume. You can even apply individual lashes in parallel to your natural lashes. There are also lash-lengthening products which claim to increase the length of the lashes, helping them grow in thickness and length.
Using mascara with an ultra-thin wand can also help with short lashes as the thin wand allows you to coat them precisely. Another option is a lash primer but this is more likely to make your eyelashes appear thicker in volume as compared to longer in length.
There are many different options you can choose to add length and volume to your lashes, giving them the allure you’ve always desired. It is completely dependent on the user and their personal preference as to which method they want to use and whether they’re comfortable with using fake lashes or not. Whatever the case, the above-mentioned options are all viable ways to convincingly make your eyelashes appear longer and fuller.
