"The eyes are the windows to the soul." Give those windows some nice curtains then! I'll be sharing some tips to get beautiful eyelashes, without buying them. Yes, it's possible, even with your short lashes. There are a few tips and tricks to make them look full, long and beautiful. Got curious? Keep on reading :)
At work customers have asked me so many times if I use fake lashes or if I have extensions. I work right next to the MAC counter, so I get why they don't believe me when I say that those are actually my own lashes. I'm proud of my lashes, especially because I take really good care of them. And I want you to be proud of your lashes too! Here are some of my quick tricks I use to get that open look with the long lashes. Enjoy!
Another way to moisturize them is with Castor Oil. This also helps your lashes to grow longer, faster and thicker! Sharing my secret with the ladies with the short lashes, I wrote about it here and here, in case you've missed it. I've been using it for a couple of months now and I've noticed a huge difference with my lashes before. I don't use it very often, but I'm.."blessed" (ahum..) with a strong hair growth. I use it about once every two weeks.

One thing I can't live without is an eyelash curler. This opens your look and gives your lashes that little extra lift. I use a cheap one from the drugstore. I hold the curler for about 10 seconds, remove the curler and repeat it. I repeat it, so the curl will stay longer.
After I used the lash curler I apply a very thin coat of mascara. I start at the roots and work my way up to the ends. Invest in a good mascara. It's important it seperates your lashes good. I've been using Max Factor Masterpiece for years now. It was my first mascara. I've tried a couple of others, but this is my all time favourite. It has the perfect formula and brush.

But that's not all. To create that super open look I have a little trick. Usually this is not that good for your eyelashes, but if you do it carefully, it can't do any harm. I hope. Don't blame me if it goes wrong! Anyway, wait until your first, thin coat of mascara has dried. After the coat has dried, I curl my lashes again. Very carefully of course, otherwise you'll break your lashes off and that's the last thing you want! After curling your eyelashes again, apply a thicker coat mascara. This is usually enough for a casual look, but if you want to intensify the effect, apply more coats. Not too many, because then you'll get tarantula lashes and that is something nobody wants. Less is more!
I hope you found these tips useful!
