Women who have always pined for long and impeccably defined lashes are in luck. Celebrity makeup artist Julie Harris recently spoke with the San Francisco Chronicle about how to achieve gorgeously full lashes.
To start, Harris recommends using an eyelash curler as close to the roots of your lashes as possible without pinching your skin. After pressing down for a few seconds, move the curler a little farther out and press down again. Repeat these steps until your lashes are fully curled.
To set the curl, apply mascara. Position the wand at the base of your lashes, wiggle the applicator from side to side and brush straight up though your lashes. According to Harris, you should separate the top quarter of your lashes with an eyelash comb to create a feathery look.
After the first coat has dried (this may take about two minutes), apply two more coats to each eye, taking time to separate lashes and allowing the formula to dry between applications.
Finally, Harris suggests holding the wand vertically and lightly brushing it across lower lashes from the inner to the outer corner.
While these tips will enhance lashes, ladies who require a bit more assistance can use a product like blinc Long Lash, which makes natural lashes appear fuller, thicker and longer.
