5 Tips For Luscious Lashes

by Gio

Chanel inimitable intense mascara 02

Luscious lashes frame and beautify the eyes. Here are 5 tips on how to achieve them:

1. When you apply mascara, wiggle the wand from side to side as you work your way from the root of your lashes to their tips. This will deposit a thicker coat of mascara on your lashes.

2.When you curl your lashes, work your way from the roots outwards: give a good squeeze closer to the eyelid, a couple in the middle and a last one near the tip of your lashes. This will give your lashes a more natural curl.

3. To make eyes look more open and awake, apply mascara only to the top lashes.

4. Is mascara on the lower lashes too much for you? Then apply a coat of clear mascara on them instead. It will give them definition without looking over-the-top or too dramatic.

5. Try coloured mascaras. Although available in lots of fun shades, blue and purple mascaras are my favourites. The former brightens the eyes, while the latter enhances green eyes.

Do you have any other tips to achieve luscious lashes?

Great tips, gio! Another thing that I do to make my lashes look bigger is line my upper waterline. It darkens the base of the lashes and makes them appear thicker!

Tammy, that is a great tip! Thanks for sharing.

These are great tips! I have very puny lashes so I do a combination of these hahah, except for the clear mascara on the lower lashes, I’d never heard that one before. Going to keep it in mind for future use 🙂
Colored mascaras are so fun. I like bright blue ones.

Makeup Morsels, I used to avoid mascara on the lower lashes because I thought it be too much, but I recently tried clear mascara on them and love the result. Lashes are defined and look natural. 🙂

Nice ideas – I’ve actually just started using mascara – and have even got a blue one from the recent Estee Lauder collection – like it 🙂 Funny how blue was a definite ‘no-no’ for so long, now it’s everywhere – even on me occasionally!

Viv, lol. I like blue mascaras too and I am glad they have become more popular as they really brighten the eyes and don’t look too dramatic. 🙂
