How to Get Longer Lashes

Makeup trends may come and go but the one element of makeup that always stays in the limelight is beautiful lashes. Big, full, long lashes are essential to every makeup look. No matter if you’re going for a minimalist bare faced look or putting a glam face on for a big night out, long lashes are crucial to any look! No stress if you’re not born with naturally long lashes, there are some easy steps you can take to take care of your lashes and keep them looking their best. For example, our Bambi Mascara has a black velvet formula to elongate and define your lashes.

Use an eyelash curler

One of the easiest ways to make eyelashes look longer starts with your trusty eyelash curler. This handy beauty tool helps curl your eyelashes so they look longer if they’re sweeping up toward your brows versus standing straight out. It’s that simple!

Keep the clump to a minimum

If you’re wanting to keep your eyelashes luscious and long, it’s good to look for lengthening mascaras which are designed to make lashes look sleek and long. Wiping away excess product before you swipe on your mascara will ensure you avoid any clumps and instead get some serious length. For a mascara that’ll lengthen the appearance of your lashes without clumping reach for the Telescopic Mascara Carbon Black.

Wiggle your mascara wand

Need another easy way to get long eyelashes? Wiggling your mascara wand! You may have reservations about this technique out of fear of getting product all over your eye lids, but this hack definitely lives up to its promise. Start by getting as close to your lid as possible and wiggle the mascara wand from the base to the end of your lashes. This will help evenly coat your lashes with mascara and leave you with a longer, sleeker look.

Use an eyelash primer

You wouldn’t skip your primer before applying your foundation so why not apply a primer before coating your lashes in mascara? A primer like the Paradise Lash Primer not only optimally preps the lashes for mascara but it also conditions and strengthens your lashes. The formula is enriched with jojoba oil and vitamins, perfect for softening your eyelashes and making them appear longer and fuller.

Comb your lashes

Before you apply mascara, know this: Combing your lashes can go a long way in achieving the appearance of long eyelashes. This simple hack can limit the chance of any clumping later on when you apply your eye makeup products. 

Highlights & Lowlights

The best thing you can do for your lashes is to simply take care of them like you would your hair or skin. How exactly do you do that? Well, it’s a lot simpler when you have a good lash serum in your corner. Our secret is the Clinically Proven Lash Serum. Formulated with a lash-caring complex, it not only cares and conditions lashes to make them look denser and thicker thanks to a decrease in lash loss but it’s also ophthalmologist tested and safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. How does it work? After consistent use for four weeks 7 out of 10 women saw less lash loss during makeup removal. This is thanks to the nourishing formula enriched with pro vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid and glycerin. 
Applying the serum is also a breeze. Simply apply the serum to clean, dry lashes in the morning before your usual makeup routine and also in the evening before you go to bed. Ensure the serum is applied to the root of your lashes, along the upper and lower lash line.

Give minking a go

Minking is a mascara technique that may be new to you, but when it comes to lengthening your eyelashes, it’s one that’s good to know. This method involves strategically using two different mascara colours to give the illusion of longer eyelashes. Think of it like ombre but for your lashes! Start off with the Paradise Mascara in Black to coat your lashes then grab the Paradise Mascara in Brown to lightly coat just the tips of your lashes.

Take it slow

As they say, slow and steady wins the race. When it comes to applying mascara, you always want to make sure that you’re taking your time. By slowly sweeping your lashes with mascara, you can increase the intensity and take your length to the next level. 

Reach for a lengthening mascara

There are plenty of lengthening mascaras to choose from, but the right formula will help you achieve long eyelashes without a ton of fuss. Our favourites? The Telescopic Mascara in Black will help you achieve up to 60% longer lashes and intensity lash by lash. Want to say goodbye to clumps for good? Opt for the Volume Million Lashes Mascara Black with an in-built excess wiper in the tube. No overloading on the brush means no clumpy mascara when you apply!
