How to Make your Eyelashes Grow!

Standard

Making your eyelashes grow naturally can actually save you a ton on mascara! If you have naturally long eyelashes, who says you need to invest in a lot of mascara? So ladies, with the hype lately being long eyelashes, I’ve got the low-down on the top tips on how to make your eyelashes grow naturally! Take a look below and see all of my tips on how to make your eyelashes grow!

 

1. DIET

 

 

Your diet can actually affect how your eyelashes grow too. If you have a really bad diet and are constantly eating up fatty foods, you might see that your eyelashes aren’t as long as they could be. Switch up your diet and get some fruits and veggies in there and you’ll notice a huge difference!

 

2. BRUSH EYELASHES

 

 

It sounds weird right? There are actually small little combs that you can use to brush your eyelashes out before you put on that mascara, but did you know that by brushing your eyelashes, you can actually make them grow a little longer? This is truly one of my favorite tips on how to make your eyelashes grow that is easy to do!

 

3. MASSAGE EYELIDS

 

 

Eyelashes can fall out, they can even break and be brittle if we do happen to mistreat them. This means that rubbing your eyelids and actually stimulating the hair follicles can actually truly help make your eyelashes grow stronger and longer in no time at all!

 

4. OLIVE OIL

 

 

I actually swear by this tip on how to make your eyelashes grow. It really works! Just by adding a bit of olive oil to your lids at night will truly help your eyelashes soak up all of the vitamins and minerals in olive oil!

 

5. VITAMIN E

 

 

Before you give up and go with just a lengthening mascara though, why not try some straight Vitamin E? Vitamin E lotion is a great way to really increase your eyelashes and really, the vitamin that will push your eyelashes to the max of growth.

 

6. FOCUS ON PROTEIN

 

 

Sometimes, a healthy diet enough may not be enough to grow your eyelashes back out. If you’re not getting enough protein, no amount of fruits and veggies will fix it. While you shouldn’t overdose on protein, you do need it to grow your hair out, even your eyelashes. Eat more body-friendly proteins instead of red meat or heavily processed powders. I like raw vegan protein powders for a cleaner option, and like to focus on wild fish, which is full of benefits. Eggs are another great option, but be sure to buy them from a reputable source if you can.

 

7. TAKE BIOTIN

 

 

Known as the hair, nail and skin vitamin, biotin is a B vitamin that will make your hair grow incredibly fast! I grew my eyelashes out in 3 months by taking biotin every single day. I like supplements that are allergen friendly, and it’s good to start with a 5,000 mcg supplement for extra strength.

 

8. USE VASELINE

 

Instead of spending your money on something that could darken your eyes, why not try something easy and quick? Just a little swipe of Vaseline on your eyelid before you go to bed will increase your lashes and will make them longer! This will take a while to see results, but trust me, it works and it’s so easy!

 

9. TRY LASH ACCELERATOR

 

Did you know that there are actually lash accelerator mascaras out there? Rimmel London has a great one and it really works! While you might spend a little more on mascara, in the end, you’ll save because your lashes will grow longer and thicker. Try it and tell me how you love it! This tip on how to make your eyelashes grow is as simple as applying a coat of mascara!

 

10. LENGTHENING MASCARA

 

Finally ladies, if you truly can’t get your eyelashes to grow, there is always lengthening mascara that you can try.

 

11. DON’T PULL

 

 

When washing your makeup off, be sure not to pull your eyelashes. I like mascara that comes off really easily to prevent tugging and pulling at lashes. Pulling stunts growth and undoes all the hard work you’ve put into making those lashes grow again! My favorite mascara at the moment is Physician’s Formula AquaProof mascara. It’s affordable, available at any drugstore, it stays on all day, is water-proof, and it comes off easily with a little makeup remover.

Fake Eyelashes – How to Apply, Remove & Clean!

Standard

Using false eyelashes may be an excellent option if you want to increase the length and volume of your eyelashes without the hassle of putting on different types of mascara every time you want to accent your lashes. I specially love long and voluminous lashes as it definitely makes one glamorous and sophisticated.

 

How to Apply Fake Eyelashes?

1. False eyelashes may be trimmed in width or length to suit your eye size or personal preference. Try original length before cutting.

2. Apply false eyelash glue sparingly to lash band. Wait 10 seconds for adhesive to become sticky.

3. Position false eyelashes slightly above your natural lash and press ends into place. Gently press across entire lash until set.

4. To remove, gently peel false eyelashes band off lid, starting at outer corner. Remove adhesive from band and place your false eyelashes back to the tray for re-use.

 

So, you have finally tried on those long fake eyelashes and realized what beauty it brings your face. After a whole night of party or a day of glamour, you are faced with one great dilemma: how to remove false eyelashes.

The good news is that removing fake eyelashes is not as difficult as applying them. Removing false lashes may initially feel dangerous because you stand the risk of pulling away your natural eyelashes as well. Remember that this can only happen if you peel it off haphazardly without care or caution.

 

How to remove fake eyelashes without losing your real lashes?

 

1. Never remove it by tugging. Chances are, you might pull off some of your real lashes as well, and this can become very tragic! Go gentle on those fake eye lashes and handle them as though they could be real.

2. Start by dabbing fake eyelash remover on your lash line with a cotton swab. You can gently tap the swab at the base in order to loosen out the eyelash glue. Start applying from the outer edge inwards. You may use some eye makeup remover as an alternative. It would also be good to let it soak for a few seconds in order to soften the adhesive glue. (Do not leave it out too long as it will dry out eventually.)

3. After making sure that it has fully softened, take one corner of the lash band (for full fake eyelashes) and gently pull off the eye lashes. For individual fake eye lashes, it is best to use a good pair of tweezers for more precision when pulling.

4. Remove all possible traces of eyelash glue by dabbing some more eyelash remover. Finally, cleanse your eyes and the rest of your makeup with a good make up remover.

 

 

Another alternative for removing Fake Eye Lashes is to use soap and water to loosen adhesive glue as effective as eyelash removers. Some also soak the area with olive oil or virgin coconut oil to achieve the same glue loosening effect.

 

 

How to Clean, Reuse & Store the Eyelashes?

 

You can actually reuse your fake eye lashes provided that you maintain them and keep them clean at all times. After removing them carefully, soak them in a tiny amount of warm, soapy water to remove the glue, dust particles, as well as false eyelash mascara that you possibly applied. Use tweezers to pull off glue particles. You can also soak them in your eyelash remover solution instead of soapy water. You can use a moustache brush or some other gentle brush for cleaning between those lashes. Afterwards, dry them and store them back in their original container.

 

If you take care of it properly, you can reuse it many times. I have known people who keep using the same lashes for about 30 times! 🙂 I know that’s really a lot but if you know how to take care of them you may use them for quite some time.
