Lemme tell ya, I love me some lashes.
But falsies? I do not have the patience for them. I have, though, discovered the magic combo to get those coveted va-va-voom lashes with just 3 different mascaras. Sorry, does that sound like a lot? Obviously, you have yet to see my treasured mascara collection. It’s casually an obsession.
If you’re like me and can’t stand the feeling of false eyelashes on (it’s like a pair of rabid butterflies attached, no?), then please read on.
Start by curling your lashes, unless you’re one of those lucky ducklings blessed with naturally curled peepers.
Apply a coat of your favorite waterproof mascara. I don’t think you plan on taking a dip later (if you do, go for it girl), but the waxes in waterproof mascara lock the curl and prep your lashes for long-wear.
Nest, use a volumizing mascara with a bristle brush for the second application. Get a good wiggle in at the base of your lashes before pulling it through in an upward and outward motion. By using a bristle brush, you will get thick and voluminous lashes – no butterflies needed.
In the final step, grab a rubber bristled mascara brush. Why the switch up? This kind of wand is ideal for separation and clump-free application. You’re going to want to focus on the outer half of your lashes. Really work the mascara into your lashes, lifting it out and towards the direction of your ears. It’ll give you that sultry cat-like finish to your lashes. Me-ow.
Give this a try next time you’re going out with the girls or on a date. With this triple threat, you can confidently bat your eyes at that hot bartender or give a wink to the cutie across the room – sans false eyelashes.
