Upgrade your lashes
December 21, 2017, 5:33 pm

You already know the transformative power of a pair of false eyelashes; this is in no way groundbreaking. There is, however, always some kind of upgrade that can be made — even for lash pros.

Of course, professionally applied extensions are the easiest and longest-lasting option to wear, but that method comes with a commitment and level of care that not everyone is up for. If your hands shake at the thought of properly applying a lash strip, you're not alone — but that's no reason for you to be banished to boring eyes for eternity. Instead, try one of the following ideas.

Get mermaid lash extensions: Rainbow and mermaid hair colors are still going strong and are no longer reserved for just your head. These multicolored extensions are subtle enough to wear to work but are also a significant step up from your basic black strip lash. These are extensions, so you'll need to have them applied by a pro. Once on, these last about four weeks.

Try false bottom lashes:  Applying lower-lash falsies opens up the eye area and makes you appear more awake. It also balances out the look so your eyes don't come off as top-heavy. Consider using a pin-tip amount of clear glue for lower individual lashes. Use tweezers to place these where your natural lashes are sparse. The more individuals you apply to the lower lash line, the more open and bright your eyes will look.

Coat your lashes in glitter: Don't try using a large amount of glitz on your own lashes, instead, coat a pair of falsies in a thin layer of lash glue. Dip the tips in a loose glitter powder (preferably a glitter shadow or something made for the eye area), and let things dry completely. Shake off any excess sparkle before applying.

Experiment with rainbow mascara: The hair on your head shouldn't have all the fun. Spread the rainbow love with lashes painted using a spectrum of vibrant mascaras. First, get some disposable mascara wands or a thin eyeliner brush. Start at the inner corner of your lashes, and coat small sections with different colored mascara.

Use a primer: Yes, adding a primer is an extra step, but it's a worthwhile one in the long run. You'll immediately notice the difference between using mascara alone and starting with this. Collagen and tiny fibers in the formula add volume and essentially work like a mask for your lashes to keep hairs strong and growing under makeup.
