We weren’t all blessed with thick, flirty eyelashes that make batting the eyes that much easier. Long, voluminous eyelashes look feminine, add definition to the eyes and draw attention, which is why they have become such a beauty necessity. But what’s a girl to do when her natural fringe is short, sparse or both? There are several options.
Of course, one of the techniques you have probably been using since junior high remains one of the easiest. That’s right, volumizing and lengthening mascaras can deliver pretty amazing results when they are used correctly. Start by curling your eyelashes. This step is especially important if your lashes grow in many directions, because pulling them into one uniform line will create a thicker, more unified look. Apply two coats of volumizing mascara, but make sure the first coat is dry before applying the second. Brushing through with a clean lash or brow brush can also help spread the mascara through all lashes while getting clumps out.
False eyelashes are also a good trick to make your lashes look thicker. There are seemingly endless varieties of falsies on the market these days, but you can glue individual lashes over your own to create a more natural look. Follow up with mascara to blend the natural lashes with the false ones.
For a long-lasting and more natural approach to longer, thicker lashes, you might want to try an eyelash growing product like Hydroxatone’s Lashatone. This product contains peptides and moisturizers to promote lash growth and nourish the lashes from the root up. You simply apply this product like eyeliner, and within a few weeks should see thicker, longer eyelashes.
