Am I the only one that thinks lashes can totally transform a look? I don’t know about you girls but when I apply mascara (or faux lashes) I’m like a totally different women. Though I wish I was one of the women that woke up and slayed everyday with falsies… let’s be honest I’m a working women who LOVES her sleep, so the thought of waking up even 10 mins earlier to apply false lashes just for them to irritate my eyes all day at work sounds terrible (I’ll pass). This is why I came up with a lash routine that helps me achieve long / full lashes and look wide awake at work.
Step 1: The secret to my lash routine starts with this first step… PRIMER! Think about it, we prime are eyes, or face and even our lips with lipliner so why wouldn’t we prime our lashes for a better result. I’ll be honest I only recently discovered this trick but now that I’ve done it, there is no going back. The lash primer I’m currently using is Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer (lucky for my island babes you can buy this on island). Fair warning when you first apply you might freak out because the product is white but I promise this is magic!
Pro tip: Let it dry before applying your first coat of mascara. I usually do brows or lips while it dries.
Step 2: Make sure you’re using the best mascara for your needs, (growth, length, volume etc). Once you have this apply from the roots to the tips making sure to coat all the lashes, especially anywhere the primer got. Don’t be afraid to do more that one coat as well as mix mascaras, as I sort of mentioned earlier , no mascara is made the same so mixing may give you the results you were looking for. I have listed some of my go-to mascaras below
Pro tip: Ensure your mascara isn’t too old and dried up. It is recommended that you use a new one every 3 months, not only is this more hygienic but will ensure you get the best results.
