Whatever your lash size, everyone is looking for longer and thicker eyelashes. Those with long lashes are blessed and others just need to find new hacks and tips till we get voluminous lashes too. From makeup to home remedies, these tips are for everyone out there. Here are some of the best tips on how to grow naturally thick and long eyelashes without spending very little.
The easiest way? Makeup. Specifically mascara. Trendy colors like blue, purples and pinks will make your eyes pop. Tightline your lashes before applying mascara for the best effect. They add much-needed volume and define your eyes. Mascaras rich in minerals and free of chemicals such as sulfates and parabens help in the growth of your lashes as well.
- Line them up!
Makeup will help draw attention to your eyes. Instead of lining the lower lash, focus on the upper lash. Apply dark shades of blacks and brows to make your lashes look longer. A layer of mascara will always help bring a healthy look to your lashes.
- Oil Them Up!
Once a week, cleanse your face and get out the oils. Oils rich in Vitamin E are the most effective in bringing thicker lashes. Coconut oil is said to be the most useful in the growth of eyelashes. Another way is to brush castor oil or Vaseline onto your mascara brush and use it on your lashes. Rinse it off after 5-7 minutes. Alternatively, you can use dried lemon peels as they are rich in vitamins C and B, folic acid and other nutrients that support in the growth of eyelashes. Soak them in any of the oils mentioned above and you apply it on the lashes. Apply it regularly as it delivers long-term effects.
- Brush It Away!
It’s all in the tools. Mascara brushes are plenty but which one is the right one for you? Choose the brush based on the shape of your eyes and what style you are going for the day. A curved brush will give a pop effect, while a straight lash brush will elongate the lashes. Brushes are also necessary to wipe away dirt and microparticles stuck on your lashes. Pick the right brush and always remember to clean them every time before you use it the next time.
- No Night Makeup!
Rule number 1: Get rid of all your makeup before bed! Any kind of makeup starts blocking your face after a while. Clean away all makeup with a makeup remover and some wet wipes. Gently clear out any makeup on the eyes and lashes, as they are delicate and can get damaged easily. Hydrate your peepers with night creams and massage your eyelids for 5-6 minutes every night. It will help bring some blood flow and aids in hair growth.
If nothing else works, turn to false eyelashes. Fake lashes or ‘falsies’ can get seem very obvious. You can stick them onto your upper eye lines. Pick something up in black and lightweight. It shouldn’t damage your natural eyelashes in the process. If you need a lesser volume, cut them up in half and stick them on at the outer edge of your eyes. It’ll fill out your eyes and still look real enough!
