How To: Get The Fake Lash Look With Mascara

Monday, September 14, 2015

Experimenting with make- up is one of my favourite things. I've tried fake lashes and while I love how they look, they are way too high maintenance. I have tried a lot of different techniques and finally found one that works. Using just mascara I discovered a way to make real lashes look fake. You can use any mascara you want, my go to is a volumizing formula like Gosh. If however you like a less clumpy look then I would suggest Benefit or L'Oreal Paris.
Step 1: Apply the mascara to the tops of your lashes. Distribute the product evenly to the inner corner of your eye to the middle then reinsert to get more product. Finish off the top lashes from the middle to the ends. If the ends of your lashes are really long pull your eye and using the wand vertically apply the mascara.
Step 2: Apply the mascara to the bottom of your lashes, make sure you go from root to tip. Wiggle the wand from side to side as you go up the length of your lashes. As you did earlier, for the hard to get end lashes pull your your eyelid and apply the mascara vertically.
Step 3: The final step is to apply mascara to your bottom lashes. I apply one coat, but that is just preference. You can apply two if you like.
Step 4: Use make-up remover or lotion on a Q tip to clean up any mascara that may have gotten on your eye lids. When I first started doing this technique I had a lot of mascara to clean up so don't worry if you do too. 

What do you guys think of this method? Did it work for you? Do you have any tips or tricks you'd like to share?
