How to Get Flawless Eyelashes
Some people are just naturally born with longer and thicker eyelashes, but most of us are not as lucky. Working on strengthening your own lashes is part of the process. Below are some ways you can work on getting flawless eyelashes this year!
Brush Your Eyelashes
Brushing your lashes can help them grow, encouraging blood circulation so that more nutrients reach the hair follicles. Start by putting a few drops of vitamin E oil on a soft-bristled eyelash brush. Use the brush to apply the oil directly on your lashes, and continue to brush the lashes gently using upward strokes. Always start from the root of the lashes and slowly move upward, to the tip of the lash. For optimal results, brush your lashes for about five minutes twice daily until you see the results you’re looking for.
Apply Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is a great remedy to help you get longer and thicker eyelashes. It contains numerous vitamins and nutrients that promote growth, keeping your lashes moisturized as well. Using a clean mascara wand, apply fresh aloe on your eyelashes before you go to bed. Leave it on overnight, and then rinse it off with warm water the next morning for perfect lashes.
Watch Your Diet
Your lashes need a good supply of vitamins and minerals to help them grow longer, thicker and stronger. If your diet regularly consists of fatty foods, you might notice that your lashes aren’t as long as they could be. Try switching up your diet, including more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and you’ll notice a huge difference in eyelash growth.
Use the Right Mascara
Instead of using a generic brand, you should always use quality mascara. Mascara with nourishing formulas will bring brittle lashes back to life with little to no effort. You also can try using lengthening mascara. This type of mascara contains lengthening fibers that instantly lengthen and thicken your lashes, ensuring eyelash growth. Below are a few tips on how to apply your mascara for flawless eyelashes.
Tips for Applying Your Mascara
– Bend the Mascara Brush
Bending the brush of your mascara wand makes it so much easier to maneuver. Gently bend the tip of the wand so it’s perpendicular to the handle as you pull it out of the tube. The new shape of the brush will make it easier to control, getting the harder-to-reach areas, like the tiny hairs toward the inner corner of your eye.
– Wiggle Your Brush Back and Forth
Coating your lashes evenly actually weighs down the tips of your eyelashes, causing them to straighten out after only a few minutes. The best way to keep your lashes curled longer is to apply a thicker coat of mascara at the root of your lashes and a lighter coat toward the ends. The trick is to wiggle the wand back and forth at the base, and then lightly comb through to the tips of the lashes.
– The Way You Hold the Brush Makes a Difference
The way you choose to hold your brush when applying your mascara can make an impact on your lashes. If you want voluminous lashes, hold your brush horizontally while wiggling it back and forth. If you want a more natural look, hold it vertically while running the tip of the brush along the length of your lashes.
Take Good Care of Your Eyelashes
A common cause of eyelash loss is wearing mascara for too long or not taking it off properly. Eyelashes are extremely delicate and a lot easier to pull out than your hair, so make sure you’re using a gentle makeup remover. You should remove your mascara every night, and make sure to never go to sleep with it on. Tugging or pulling on the eye area to remove mascara also can cause your lashes to break or fall out.
The best way to ensure you remove stubborn mascara is to use an eye-makeup remover that’s formulated for your skin type. If you have oily skin, look for an oil-free remover. If you have sensitive skin, invest in a gentle, fragrance-free remover that won’t irritate your eyes. When removing your mascara, wet a makeup pad with the makeup remover of your choice and press the pad against your lashes. Wipe away the mascara by using gentle, downward motions – cleansing the area lightly, so that it prevents any damage to the lashes and ensures growth.
