How to create Longer, Fuller Lashes
When applying eyeliner a lot of people make the mistake of making the line to thick , therefore making the eyes appear smaller. This is a mistake that I frequently make myself. So when applying your eyeliner you want to get it as close to the Lash line as possible. If you are using a pencil, make sure to sharpen the edge to a point which allows easier application. If your use liquids or powder eyeliner, you want to apply with a brush at the base of the Lash line; which is where the lashes grow. Make sure when you are applying that you apply in gentle strokes, versus just sweeping across.
Step One If you are unsure what type of Eyeliner to use, one I would recommend for this purpose is the Cream to Powder Eyeliner by Jane Iredale.You won't get more fun or versatility from one product than you will from these beautiful cream-to-powder combinations. Mix them for your own custom shade, and also wear as shadows or brow color. Best of all, once they're set, they will stay and stay. And because this is a Cream to Powder Eyeliner, you are going to want to apply using a brush, Jane Iredale also makes the Dual Eye Liner/Brow Brush; A double-ended brush that makes lining and smudging so easy.
Another Trick to remember when applying eyeliner is to only line the inner lids on the top, with a gel eyeliner to maake it look more natural. lining the inner lid on the bottom does nothing but make your eyes appear smaller, and takes away from your lashes. A good Gel Liner is the Incredible Wear Gel Liner by Youngblood, Draw those lines bold or fine! Our intensely colored, long-wearing formula glides on smoothly like a liquid liner with the precision of an eye pencil. Non-irritating, very water-resistant and budge-proof.
Step Two The next step is to curl your lashes, to make the mascara go on easily. Instead of using a regular lash curler, that uses pressure to force lashes to curl, try a heated lasher. The Heated Lash Curler by Blinc, is simple-to-use and easily shapes lashes in seconds, with extravagant, long-lasting curves. Nothing sets a curl better than heat...after all, that's how we curl the hair on our heads! It's the same for your lashes. Not only is it safer, heated curls last longer than pressure curls. And then you apply your mascara, it's alsways good to pick a good mascara that doesn't clump and isn't damaging to your lashes. The Treatment Mascara Duo by Brenda Christian is a Double-ended miracle Mascara conditions eyelashes, actually plumping them from the inside out with special Panthenol filled eylash primer and mascara. Plastic surgeons recommend Treatment Mascara Duo because it is easy to remove and allows gentle removal with any facial cleanser.
Step Three The lasts tep is to apply your eyeshadow. To make your lashes appear longer do not aply dark shadow that will blend in with your dark lashes. to make your lashes stand apart form your shadow, use a lighter tone. highlighting just under your brow bone with a darker shade.
