How To Get Long Eyelashes
How To Get Long Eyelashes
Livie, from Livie says, tells you how to get long eye lashes, using inserts and applying mascara using proper makeup techniques. Here are your options to longer lashes.
Today, I'm going to be showing you how to get long eyelashes. You can either use a lengthening or a volumizing mascara to achieve this look, or you can use false lashes. You can either use the individual ones, like I'm going to be using today, or you can use full strip lashes.
These are more for a night out and I wouldn't advise these if you're looking to get a long natural effect, I would actually definitely go with these individual lashes, although I love these eyelashes, they're fabulous. Now, depending on your natural lash length, you can use anything from the short length to the longest length. If you're working on the mid and outer sections like I will be, you want to use the mid and long lengths, longest on the outer corner, and the mid length in the centre of your eye.
Before I use any false lashes, I'm going to be putting on a really good mascara, the one I'll be using is by Benefit and it's called "They're Real!" Start by curling your eyelashes, the further into the roots of your lashes, the longer they're going to look, so if you can try to push the curve as close to the inside of your eye as you can. Now, I'm going to go in with the benefit mascara, you want to start by wiggling it right in the roots and then pulling up through the lashes, and you'll want to do a few coats of this if you want them to look really long. Now, apply mascara before the false lashes simply because if you try and be really vigorous with the brush, you're just going to pull off the false lashes that you've spent so much time already applying, so be sure to use the mascara first.
So, as you can see, I've done the mascara on this eye and I've left this eye, just so you can see the difference already just by using the mascara, but I am going to go in now with the individual lashes. You're going to need some tweezers to pull these off, otherwise you run the risk of detaching bonds that keeps all the hairs together. I'm going to start with the medium length just to pull one of those off, you're going to want to keep a good hold of this, and pop a little bit of glue on the bond.
There we go, and because this is the mid length, I'm going to be putting this into the middle of my eye. Get a hand held mirror, and just tilt this, and push into the roots of your lashes, and use the base of the tweezer to pat it down, and it should blend in almost invisibly, except you'll still be able to actually see the fibres. So, now, I'm holding one of the longer length ones, and I'm going to be putting that on the outer corner of my eye, so just push it right into the roots, pat it down, and I'll be able to start seeing the longer lengths there.
I'm just going to blend those out now, the few of the shorter length ones, just so it doesn't look quite so obvious that we're wearing false lashes. Now, I'm just going to let the glue set for about a minute or two minutes and then, I'm going to go in with my eyelash curlers. This is going to blend the false lashes with your natural lashes, and just stop it from looking quite so obvious that you have two separate lengths going on.
To finish off the look, I'm going to blend the false lashes with my natural lashes, and I'm going to use a little bit of L'Oreal's telescopic mascara to do just that. When using the telescopic mascara, do ensure that you go in through the top of the lashes rather than from underneath, otherwise you do run the risk of pulling out the lash inserts. And now, you can see the difference between my eye that has no mascara whatsoever and the eye that's finished.
And that's how to get long eyelashes. .
