Growing eyelashes is an important part of eye beauty. Lashes are important for making the eyes look more attractive. The eyelashes can be used to hide scars on your face. You can also use them to highlight your eyes in a very natural way that will make you feel confident about yourself.
Steps To Grow Eyelashes
There are many ways to grow your eyelashes, and you don’t have to resort to mascara or other substances. One of the easiest ways is by brushing them daily. A natural hairbrush should be used, as synthetic materials may irritate your eyes and make them itch more than usual. After each use, wash the brush with mild soap and water before storing it away in a clean container until your next use.
Curl your Lashes
Curling your lashes is a good way to make them appear longer. Curling your eyelashes will also help lift them and give them a more open look.
Hold the lash curler tightly in one hand, and then use your other hand to gently squeeze the curler until it touches the base of your lashes and closes. Open the curler and repeat this several times until you have achieved desired results.
Always curl before applying mascara and not after, as it can remove residue from newly curled lashes which can cause clumping.
Choose the Right Mascara
To help you choose the right mascara for your eyelashes, here are some tips:
Avoid waterproof mascara. It can make lashes brittle and dry out over time, leading to breakage.
Choose hypoallergenic products if you have sensitive eyes or allergies—this goes for everything from lipstick to mascaras!
Look for mascaras that are made with natural ingredients, such as beeswax and vitamin E. Also, look at the ingredient list on the back of the package; avoid harsh chemicals like mineral oil or petroleum jelly (aka Vaseline), which can clog pores and lead to irritation.
Make sure any product you use is cruelty-free!
Use an Eyelash Primer And Serum/Oil
To get the most benefit from your primer, you must use one with a formula that's designed for eyelashes. Look for serums and oils made especially for this purpose, as they will contain ingredients like peptides (to strengthen lashes) and vitamins (to help with growth).
You'll want to apply the primer at night before bedtime or any time you're not wearing makeup. This can be done by simply dipping your clean fingers into the bottle, then applying it along the upper lash line just as if you were applying mascara.
As with any other skincare product, an oil will usually have more benefits than a primer does—so don't bother using one unless it has both! In addition to making lashes fuller and longer-looking, oils typically contain ingredients such as macadamia nut oil (which moisturizes), argan oil (which nourishes), jojoba seed oil (which softens), aloe vera leaf extract (which hydrates), vitamin E acetate succinate ester (which improves cell renewal), allantoin sodium sulfate monohydrate powder (which soothes skin while reducing redness or irritation).
Massage your Lashes
Massage in small circles, working from the base of your lashes up and out to their tips. You'll be able to feel each lash as you massage. You should also apply a drop of oil to the base of your lashes before massaging them, which will help break down any blockages in pores or follicles that could cause an ingrown eyelash. Massage for 2 minutes, then let it sit for 30 seconds before rinsing it with warm water and gently patting it dry with a towel.
Get Lash Extensions
Lash extensions are a great way to get long, full lashes that last for up to 2-3 weeks. They're also semi-permanent and can be applied by a professional or at home with the right tools and materials. Lash extensions are especially effective if you have thin eyelashes or your natural lashes don't grow very well because they're prone to breakage or shedding.
When applying for lash extensions, your technician will apply individual false eyelashes one at a time using a medical adhesive that's similar to a liquid bandage (hence the nickname "liquid eyeliner"). The process is fairly painless, but does take some getting used to—your eyes will feel quite heavy until the glue dries and sets into place!
