Felling like your lashes are falling flat? Stop fretting over it and read about these on budget tips to get sky-high lashes!
A couple of weeks ago I stopped by a store and I couldn’t help but notice the amazing lashes the cashier had. I complimented her on her beautiful eyes, and she told me she had had them done at a salon because as she couldn’t show her full makeup, she might as well have sky-high lashes. It was only then when I realized that in corona times our makeup routine had been mostly limited to the top half of our faces. So I decided to look up inexpensive ways to boost my lashes. Here’s what I found:
Get a mascara that works for you
If you want skyscraper lashes, but going to a salon is not an option, finding the right mascara is the way to go. Although the formula is indeed important, how the wand looks it’s paramount to see how it’s going to apply.
- A fat furry brush will yield voluminous and fluffy lashes.
- If, on the other hand, you prefer a more defined look, use a plastic or rubber wand with closely spaced bristles.
- For supreme curl and lift lashes, choose a curved brush that will lift and curl your lashes.
- If you want all of the above, try starting with a lash curler and then apply the mascara in a back and forth motion to create lift and separation.
Use a lash conditioner
It is important to keep your lashes healthy, there are several serums packed with biotin in the market, but if you are looking for a more natural, on budget alternative here are some tips.
Try applying false lashes
If you are still not happy with the way your lashes look, you can try applying some falsies. The key is to apply a small amount of glue and wait about 15 or 20 seconds so the glue is tacky. Then tilt your chin up towards the mirror so you can see exactly what you are doing. Try to keep your eyes open during the process.
