Happy Monday! Today we’re talking about one of my favorite things–lashes! Some girls are all about the lips, some are about the eyebrows, but I’m all about the lashes. I concentrate my efforts on having really full long lashes. So today, I want to share the products I use and my tips and tricks for getting big lashes!
First things first, let’s talk about how I care for my lashes. I treat each individual one like my children. The number 1 thing I do is AVOID RUBBING! I am a face-toucher. I work all day with my chin in my hand and when I’m tired, I rub my eyes. Like not just a little..I rub until I see stars lol. Idk if feel like I’m accomplishing something or waking myself up, but it’s not good for your eyes and DEFINITELY not for your lashes. Pulls them right out.
So over the past year, I’ve worked really hard to stop doing that lol. I actually don’t touch my lashes at all. I don’t pick my mascara and I definitely don’t rub my eyes. In fact, when I take my mascara off I don’t rub. When I take my make-up off, I use a remover wipe and gently wipe from root to tip. I don’t rub side to side ever.
After I take my make-up off, I use Lash Boost. This is a Rodan and Fields product that I just love. This serum helps you lashes grow fuller and longer. It also darkens them (which I love since mine are blonde.) It’s the best product ever. I don’t sell Rodan and Fields, but my pal Brina does and can hook you up if you’re interested!
Ok, so let’s talk about the mascara I use. I actually use three…it’s a bit excessive I know lol. I start with this one from Pur. I do a generous base coat and let it dry. Then I follow up with Better Than Sex. These are both fabulous mascaras on their own, but when combined–it’s perfection.
Then I finally comb through with a quick swipe of Great Lash. Yep, everyone’s first mascara from high school. I don’t care what you say, that’s the best brush of all time. So I use it to remove and clumps and separate my lashes.
Ok here is a new tip I learned this weekend from my pal Traci. I’ve done it exactly twice so take this with a grain of salt, but y’all this is a GAME CHANGER. So it’s now permanently part of my routine. In between each coat, I dip a cotton swab in water and then in baby powder. I brush the swab on my lashes and I swear the effects are pure magic. Trust me, try it. You lashes look SO thick with this trick.
Finally, I use an eyelash curler. You have to be super duper careful with this because you don’t want to lose any. I actually heat mine up with my hair dryer first. I test the temp on my wrist so I don’t singe them off lol, and then clamp gently on my lashes for 10 seconds.
So there ya have it–that’s how I get full, long lashes on a daily basis. What’s your favorite lash technique?
