Let me start off by saying that I am in no way, shape or form a makeup artist. This is someone who doesn’t even know how to put on eyeliner. LOL! I mean apply. HAHAHA, SEE I can’t even get the lingo down! I can probably count on two hands how many times in my ENTIRE 27 years, that I have even worn any eye makeup, other than mascara. See my skills below.
(This is my attempt at heavy eyeliner and Cat makeup for a halloween promo a few years ago.)
However, seeing as I get asked on a daily basis about my lashes…and seeing as Sephora has awarded me a RED Rouge Card for the ungodly amount of dollars I spend there; I feel obligated, and qualified, to give my tips and tricks on how I get lashes that get tons of complements! (THANKS BTW!) Eyelashes are MY thing! ALRIGHT, here we go!
- Mascara– I have tried ALL KINDS of mascaras, from super expensive, to drug store. I STRONGLY believe mascara is the one beauty product you DON’T have to pay a ton of doll-hairs for! Also, you should really get whatever formula-brush combination that works for you. For example, since my lashes are longer, the bristles have to be longer as well, in order to comb through them. As far as formula goes, mine are extremely thin, so I need a THICK formula. If you have short, thick lashes the same one probably won’t work for you. It’s all good though, seeing as their are TONS of brands with all sorts of brush and formula combos! Lots of people like the short plastic applicators and those DO NOT work for me. TIP: LONG LASHES=LONG BRISTLES My holy grail is actually in the plain black L’OREAL tube. HAHAHA I DONT EVEN KNOW THE REAL NAME! I’ll google it! Picture of the magic tube below!

2. Application– I personally think that the way you apply mascara makes all the difference in the world!!!! One of my BIGGEST tricks is, I basically curl my lashes while I apply. Take the wand and go mid-lash to the tips, in a curling motion. After you go over your top lashes, really focus on the tippy tips, of the top as well. For the bottom lashes I hold the wand vertical and run it down the bottom lashes. Don’t forget about the tippy tips!
3. Care– Take your mascara off at night, no matter how many beers or martinis you’ve have! If not, they fall out faster! This is also the pot calling the kettle black… I use to be the queen of sleeping in my makeup. You know what? Every once in a while, I’m tired; or maybe I’ve had too much wine, or something, and that’s okay. But seriously, take it off as often as possible. For FOREVER I’ve been on the search for a go-to remover, and I FOUND ONE! It’s called We Love Eyes, it’s vegan, and there is no trace of mascara after you’re done. It’s a two step super easy process. I actually made a video for my INSTA! (To watch the video click HERE) I think it’s super cute!!! I seriously LOVE, LOVE this stuff! It has really helped my eyelash game! They are sooo healthy thanks to We Love Eyes! I would not recommend something I didn’t LOVE and use myself! (Click HERE for the remover)
Those are ALL my eyelash tips and tricks! I just wanted to pass on any knowledge I have! Again, I am NOT a professional so posts like these will be few and far between! I mean, I do LOVE makeup. It’s so fun and it’s really great to feel confident and good about yourself. Not that long eyelashes are the sole reason to feel good about yourself, but when you look good, you feel good; and that certainly helps! I hope these tips work for you, and that it makes you feel beautiful, with some long looking lashes, you go girl!
