Eyelashes are to your eyes what petals are to roses. Your eyelashes tell the world to come closer and gaze into your gorgeous eyes. You can get your lashes to send out irresistible invitations to your world in three simple steps.
The keys to amazing eyelashes are proper nourishment, the right curl and a well-chosen mascara.
Step 1: Condition For Longer, Thicker Lashes
Lush, sexy eyelashes are long and thick. If time or shabby genes have robbed you of these traits, you can steal them back using an array of eyelash conditioners. Lash conditioners work by strengthening and protecting the eyelash strand. This allows your eyelashes to grow longer and stay longer in the hair follicle. With time, typically two to four weeks, you'll enjoy noticeably longer and thicker lashes.
Lucky for us, Latisse (the first and, so far, only FDA-approved prescription treatment for scanty eyelashes and growing them longer, fuller and darker) is not the only way to coax your lashes to grow back.
RapidLash eye conditioner offers a reasonable path to extreme lashes for about $ 50US for a one to two month supply. More affordably, and comparably effective, you can grab Ardell Magic Lash Growth Enhancer for around $ 10US at your local drug store.
Step 2: Curl Your Lashes
Once you get a lush garden of lashes, you need to welcome them into the world with a nice curl. Eyelash curlers come in a variety of styles and functions. You can grab a simple curler at retailers like Wal-Mart or Walgreens for around $ 5US. To use most eyelash curlers, you simply place the curler at the edge of your eyelid, while ensuring the your eyelashes are spread evenly and naturally across the curler pad, press the curler and hold for 10-15 seconds and release.
Now, you even have the option of applying mascara and then using a heated eyelash curler. The advantage of the heated curler is that it helps stop that little loss of curl that you can sometimes get once you put on mascara.
Heated eyelash curlers are also ideal for people with eyelashes too short for curling with a traditional metal curler or people who blink so much, it makes it almost impossible to grab their lashes with the curler. These beauty tools are also sold in drug stores for $ 10- $ 15US.
Step 3: Apply The Right Mascara
Even though it seems like there are a million types of mascara in the world, they all basically perform one or two of the following functions: lengthen, add volume, separate, curl and / or waterproof the eyelash. So picking a mascara is a matter of deciding what your want your lashes to look like- longer, curlier, bushier, etc.
To get the most drama out of your lashes, you can go for Maybelline's Volum 'Express the Falsies. For less than $ 7US, this mascara promises a 300% increase in the number of lashes you can see. It lengthens as well.
Next time you're in the mascara aisle, don't get overwhelmed by the smorgasbord of choices you have. Just decide what you want to do with your lashes (lengthen, volumize, waterproof and / or curl) and pick a mascara that does just that.
Follow these three simple beauty treatments (condition, curl and mascara), and within two to four weeks you'll be on your way to creating captivating lashes for less than $ 30US. Don't wait, you've got amazing lashes longing to come into full bloom.
