To get incredible eyes and boost the volume of your lashes, your must-have make-up is mascara. But mascara isn’t the only thing that can give you full lashes. Here are some tips to show you that it’s not just your hairstyle pumping up the volume
this summer! Mascara
. To make it look like you have infinite lashes, opt for volumising mascaras. These promise to extend your lashes and make them denser for increased thickness. The result: irresistible big, round eyes. To optimize the effects, plunge the brush into the tube, remove the excess liquid on the side then apply the mascara. To do this, start at the base of your upper lashes and lift the brush upwards and outwards. For your lower lashes, start at the base of the lashes and work the brush downwards. Eyelash curlers
. This beauty tool might look intimidating at first! But if you learn the right technique, you’ll blow your friends away with ultra-volumised lashes. To avoid hurting yourself, use it on bare lashes, in other words, lashes without mascara. Look down, use the curlers to take hold of the lashes at the base (without trapping your eyelid) then press down gently. Your lashes are instantly curled! False eyelashes.
If you have fine, short or few eyelashes, there’s not a lot you can do, even with the best mascara in the world. But false eyelashes come in many lengths, and they can be either natural or synthetic. Go for natural-looking lashes. For easy application, choose stick-on versions. Test them before sticking them down, and remember to place them at the base of your lashes. Take them off at the end of the day or after your night out. © Pixelformula / Backstage at the Dsquared prêt-à-porter show, Spring-Summer 2013 © Jean Louis David
