If you don’t like to wear false lashes but want to look like you are, I have the solution for creating lashes that look longer and grow longer, too.
The first part is most important as it’s the key to long, natural lashes: Use a lash serum.
My lashes used to be super short, but I’ve been using the GrandeLASH Lash Enhancing Serum for around a year now and now my lashes are literally up to my eyebrows.
This lash serum uses vitamin E to support lash health, fortifying amino acids, and hyaluronic acid to protect and condition the lashes, which adds hydration to minimize breakage when they’re dry, brittle, or damaged.
Apply your lash serum once a day at night before going to bed. You don’t need to use much, either. Wipe off any excess serum from the brush tip and apply it along your lash line, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll start to notice the results in as little as two weeks.
The second part for creating naturally long lashes that look like falsies deals with the makeup application.
For longer-looking lashes, it’s important to use a good lash primer. I like the essence Volume Booster Lash Primer, but I’ve also used L’Oreal’s Voluminous Lash Primer in the past. Apply it just like mascara, but before you apply any mascara.
A lot of lash primers like the one I use are white, which does make you look a bit crazy, but it will give your lashes so much length and definition.
The final secret is to use a good lengthening mascara. I have been using and loving the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara, and the difference is massive.
Not only does this mascara lengthen the lashes, but it lifts and curls, adding major volume. It’s also a long-lasting formula that won’t dry, flake, or smudge.
If your lashes are short, thin, flat, or sparse, this routine of using a good lash-growing serum, a conditioning and protecting primer, and sealing it all in with a lengthening and volumizing mascara will help them grow longer and look like falsies without ever having to reach for the glue.
