Long eyelashes are something that I have always wanted. I remember being in high school and quizzing a friend’s Mom on her eyelash extensions. I tried pitching the $200+ every two weeks ‘must-have’ to my Mom and quickly getting shot down. It’s hard to believe, I know! It used to be that long eyelashes were either something you naturally had or you were out of luck. One of my best friends has the most amazing lashes and I remember how disappointed I was when her Maybelline mascara didn’t triple the length of mine!
Finally, after YEARS of not being able to find anything to make these stubby little lashes of mine look long there are now products out there that make your lashes look longer. The key is having a primer with the mascara. It works WONDERS. This mascara I am using above is amazing; oh yeah and 30% off for the month of July. I put a layer of the primer on, then a layer of mascara, then one more layer of mascara. Then, if it’s going to be a long day or night I throw the mascara in my purse to apply extra layer later. Yes, I am that girl in the bathroom adding mascara and lipgloss. Style tip: if you have a wedding coming up this summer make sure you give your eyelids some time to get used to all the extra weight before photos otherwise you may get an extra winky eye due to the flash in photos.
I also use a lash serum. I swear by that as well, but it’s really expensive. It works well, but it’s an investment. So if you’re just getting started off in the quest to longer lashes, I suggest starting with a mascara. It will give you instant results and it may be enough.
