HOW TO: Get Curly, Long and Voluminous Lashes!


I have been taking a few days off (sorry about that - been a quite busy week)  but I am now back bringing you my best tip for how to get your lashes to become long, curly and voluminous(but defined) and stay that way all day!

So to start off this is what my 100% natural lashes look like:

As you can see they are very light and straight ...not much to brag about..

...Therefore I curl them to start the magic! When I curl my lashes I start at the tip, then culr them "gradually" all the way in to the base so that the curl looks even and natural :) This is what they look like curled:

Still not too exciting but now comes the main part of the "tip" in this post; If you "struggle" with straight lashes that don't keep the curl throughout the day/once you apply your mascara then...


Ok, sorry about the big, bold writing but I had to make sure you got the message:) As for the brand of mascara - don't splurge on the expensive ones - I find that they never do the job well enough and I always stick to the same brand : Maybeline. Yes, their mascaras are great - As long as they are waterproof! I've tried a bunch of them and currently I'm using this one:

Maybeline The Colossal Volume Express Waterproof

It works really well, holds the curl, lengthens, volumizes and defines! + It's pretty affordable :)

To come with a fewother options: L´oréal Telescopic Waterproof, Covergirl LashBlast 24hr , and well the other Maybeline waterproof mascaras :) Probably a ton of others too, but these are the ones I've liked.

Now to the result! This is what you end up with after applying the mascara (I applied 2 coats, but 1 is perfectly fine too )

 So yup, that is how I get my lashes to look a little bit better :) If you're sitting there thinking "Ohh, but waterproof mascara is such a hazzle to get off without rubbing your eyes out" then don't worry! find a oil based make-up remover and use that on a cotton pad and it should slide off the lashes just fine - without having to rip your lashes out :) As for me, I prefer MAC's Cleanse Off Oil which you can get at any MAC (Make-up Artist's Cosmetics) counter/store near you :)

Did you find this helpful? Is there any other type of post of this type you would like me to do? - leave it in the comments and I will get on it! :)

Thank you for stopping by my blog! Have a nice Saturday!
