Not everyone was born with luxurious lashes, but luckily, it’s easy to recreate a full-bodied look that will make your peepers pop. After all, your eyes are usually the first thing people look at, so make them stand out with these lash pumping tricks.
1. The first step to fat lashes is preparation. If you put your eye makeup on after your other makeup, prevent smudging by making sure your moisturizer is dry before you begin applying shadow and mascara. Also, use a light powder over your under-eye concealer to make your eyes pop and prevent dark circles from showing through.
2. Curl your eyelashes as close to the roots as possible for maximum effect. Clamp down gently and hold for a few seconds, then repeat, moving along your lashes to create a balanced curve. Better yet, try ModelCo Lash Wand Heated Eye Lash Curler, which you can use just like a mascara wand to instantly curl lashes.
3. Use a thickening mascara, like Jane Iredale – Longest Lash Mascara, holding the wand at the base of your lashes. Wiggle it from side to side before brushing up to the ends. Apply two or three coats, combing and allowing them to dry in between. Hold the wand vertically to coat lower lashes for an eye-popping look.
