The Longer the Lashes the Closer to Heaven
I am absolutely obsessed with long lashes. If my bedroom was burning down the first thing I’m grabbing is my lash strips and glue. I’m always trying to find ways to make my eyelashes appear longer and fuller. Eventually I found a shortcut to getting longer lashes and finally got eyelash extensions. I felt so fabulous and glamorous for 3 months straight keeping up with my reapplication every 3 weeks. Then I noticed over those two months that my natural eyelashes were thinning. I decided to give my natural lashes a break and stopped getting lash extensions. Once the extensions came off I realized my once healthy and long natural lashes were thin and short and pretty much unnoticeable even with mascara.
Now if you are asking yourself how did I (and my lashes) bounce back from that L here’s a list of eyelash products I live by that will help your eyelashes look amazing.
To Promote Lash Growth – GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum
After tragically losing my natural eyelashes in the process of reapplying my lash extensions every 3-4 weeks for 3 months I invested in the miraculous Grand Lash Serum. Applying once in the evening along my lash line as instructed, I started seeing growth in my natural lashes within a month. During this time, I was wearing lash strips because I refused to be caught around the city with bare eyes. In 2 months, my eyelashes were back to their regular length. By the 3rd month, my natural lashes were surpassing the length of my more natural-looking eyelash strips. The only caveat with this serum is that you have to continue to use this serum to sustain the length.
Once my lashes were back and even longer than before I started experimenting with different mascaras that would maximize my new lash length. Below are my top 5 mascaras that I found that provided more length, thickness, and overall glam effect.
- Tarte – Lights, Camera, Lashes
- Urban Decay – Perversion Mascara
- Lancôme – Monsieur Big
- Milk-Kush Mascara
- Maybelline- Colossal Mascara
I noticed a little makeup secret after hanging out with my girlfriends. When applying mascara realized that combining two mascaras can give you better results than just using one. For instance, my favorite combo right now is the Milk and Maybelline mascaras. Kush really makes my lashes look fuller and thicker and Maybelline Colossal prevents my lashes from looking clumpy and elongates them. All my girlfriends have their mascara combos that work perfectly for their lashes, maybe its worth taking the time to see what duo works for your lashes.
Hope these tips help you achieve a longer and more lavish lash look. If you have any mascaras you think I should try please leave a comment below!
