All women want to have perfect, luscious lashes 24/7. If you want to have long, luscious lashes but you don’t want to use expensive extensions or time-consuming false lashes you should follow these 5 tips to get perfect lashes.
1. Use an eyelash comb to prevent „spider eyelashes“
You should comb your eyelashes after applying mascara to avoid clumps. „An eyelash comb with metal teeth is key – you should apply a layer, wait a couple of seconds, comb your lashes, and then apply the next layer.“ We recommend Sonia Kashuk’s brand new double-ended Lashify Mascara. It comes complete with an eyelash comb for fast brushing.
2. You should treat and condition your eyelashes on a daily basis.
Your eyelashes need some extra attention to stay luscious. We recommend using eyelash conditioners, like Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum. It works like a primer, making a smooth surface to apply your mascara. Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, who is the director of the Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington DC, says that growth treatments such as Latisse „encourage the growth cycle of your lashes, making it longer, so your eyelashes are darker, thicker and longer.“ You will be able to see improvements in one month and complete results in 2-3 months.
3. Lash curlers are crucial.
If you want to get luscious lashes you should read what Sonia Kashuk, make-up professional and owner of Sonia Kashuk Beauty recommends. She says that if you want to give your eyelashes the wow factor you should use eyelash curlers. „You should choose the lash curler which makes a gorgeous upward curl, like Sonia Kashuk Dramatically Defining Eye Lash Curler, and with a gentle pumping movement, move from the eyelash base upward for the best results. „You must curl your lashes first and then apply mascara“. Kashuk says that when your lashes are bare, „They are suppler and the crimping of the eyelash doesn’t feel as harmful.
4. Avoid layering different mascaras
Sonia Kashuk says that she wouldn’t advise layering different mascaras, because some formulas may not mix well and you may end up with clumping lashes. But there are some formulas that you can mix and match. If there is a wand that you like the best, you should clean it and use with your favourite mascara or as an eyelash comb.
5. Let your eyelashes set between coats of mascara.
You should give a little bit of air time between each layer. Kashuk says that practicing a little patience between each layer will allow the mascara to set and build upon each coat instead of gooping up as one large clump. We recommend our brand new non-clumping mascara – Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara. This mascara will provide volume and the wand will separate and comb.
