Given her youthfulness, it's anyone's guess whether she's naturally endowed or whether she achieved the look with a pair of faux lashes. Either way, she makes a good point - jumbo lashes are a time-tested way to instantly amp up your feminine appeal.

While this look would be great for a romantic date, there are plenty of occasions that could call for this much glam. Whether you're attending a wedding or just want to look a bit more alluring as you run errands, long lashes could be just the answer you're looking for.

Women who weren't blessed with lashes like Cyrus aren't out of luck. A lash enhancer like blinc's Long Lash could can make your natural lashes appear dramatically thicker and longer with no adverse irritation or discoloration.

When it's time to unleash the drama, a blinc water-resistant tubing Mascara may can complete the look, creating an enviably thick fringe with its gentle, long-lasting formula.

Famous for her lush brunette locks and dark, exotic eyes, Kim played her cards right at the bebe Jewelry Launch in New York, pairing over-the-top eyelashes with a barely-there nude lip. Her super-long lashes reached the length of her browbone to the base of her lower lids.

Kim balanced out her full fringe with thick, perfectly-arched brows.

That being said, you don't have to have naturally voluminous lashes to take a page out of Kim's book.

A lash-enhancer like blinc Long Lash can dramatically enhance your natural eyelashes, making them appear thicker, fuller and longer before any mascara intervention. You only need a small amount and can expect to see results in as little as two to four weeks, and your healthy, conditioned lashes will certainly thank you for it.

Whether you're a fan of the falsies or just an extreme mascara enthusiast, there are ways to achieve the sky-high look without making others jump equally so at the mere sight of you.

Glamour.com recently highlighted Natalie Portman and Blake Lively's looks for their masterful achievement of this fine, delicate balance. Both actresses flaunted lashes that weren't overly long or thick - the key is to frame your eyes, not to obscure them, the beauty site pointed out.

Emphasizing lips, cheeks, brows or eyes can have increasingly different effects on the overall result, and each can look stunning with the proper execution.

If your flirty gaze is considered to be your best feature, consider the merits of amping up the lash volume. StyleBistro.com points out how well the maneuver worked on Emma Roberts, who "[intensified] her copper lined eyes and shimmering coral cheeks" with bold, spidery lashes.

If you do decide to go this route, keep in mind that the most effective way to get your message across is to keep the rest of your makeup looking soft and natural. Roberts lightly swept some copper shadow all over her lids and finished her look with dewy rosy cheeks and a soft champagne lip.

To get the most out of your lashes for prom, use blinc Long Lash to dramatically enhance the appearance of your lashes' length and volume. The gentle formula can be applied twice a day like an eyeliner and brings visible results in two to four weeks.

Mila was a stunner at the 2011 Golden Globes with some of the lushest, natural-looking lashes we've ever seen. With a pair of perfectly arched, groomed brows and not much else but a sheer, beige shadow barely brightening up her eye area, Mila let her natural beauty shine through with just the addition of a coral lip.

You can make your lashes the star of the show by combining good mascara with a natural lash enhancement. Once you've got that down, go as natural as possible with the rest of your makeup - a rosy blush and nude-colored shadow are all you'll need.

Use blinc Long Lash to dramatically improve the appearance of your lashes' length and fullness. The formula is gentle enough to be applied twice a day, and goes on easily like an eyeliner. Better yet, you'll start to see noticeable results in two to four weeks.

Perhaps it comes as no surprise, then, that Vivienne Westwood decked her models out in Alice in Wonderland-inspired makeup at the Fall 2011 London Fashion Week. Faces coated in stunning gold-leaf layers and half-crooked brows graced the runways, displaying her equally whimsical clothing.

Ladies that want to fulfill their makeup fantasies don't have to don an all-out haute couture ensemble in order to look the part.

Start by choosing two vividly contrasting eyeshadows and applying them strategically to your face. Try to position the hues in unexpected ways, such as applying the darker color to your browbone or creating a two-tone look with one color on each half of your lid.

For outrageously outlandish lashes, using blinc Long Lash is one way to get them to unparalleled heights. The lash conditioner can dramatically enhance the appearance of your lashes in just two to four weeks.

<![CDATA[What's your Wolfman inspiration? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 09:38:00 +0000 raveinfo It's hard for us here to ignore The Wolfman after it nabbed the Oscar for best makeup at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday. Makeup artists Rick Baker and Dave Elsey received the accolade for their gripping portrayal of a man transforming into a werewolf, a feat which was made possible only with the best in makeup know-how.

That being said, we're wondering if there's something to be said for this achievement, at least in the realm of day-to-day cosmetics. We're not saying women everywhere should go running into the streets sporting patches of fake fur glued all over their faces, but can a similar makeup stunt make for a howling good time while out on the town?

Perhaps women everywhere can borrow inspiration from the wolves by creating impossibly furry - er, feathery - lashes.

A natural lash enhancer, such as blinc Long Lash, can help dramatically improve the appearance of your lashes even before you apply mascara. The gentle formula can be applied up to twice a day, and results are usually seen in as little as two to four weeks.

First of all, if you're going to max out on your fringe, keep the rest of your makeup minimal. You can feel free to add some subtle eyeshadow to set off your mascara, but don't go too dark and certainly don't go too bright. Keep lips and cheeks looking natural.

Most importantly, you'll want to select a high performance mascara and combine it with an advanced lash enhancer. Use blinc Long Lash twice a day for noticeable effects in as little as two weeks. Topped off with a couple coats of blinc Mascara, you'll see what your lashes are truly made of.

According to HollywoodLife.com, the Princess has been extremely fond of a clean and dark mascara look that works beautifully with her brunette locks.

Middleton has taken a bit of flak recently from the British press for her unabashed use of eyeliner, so she's toned it down a bit and instead shifted her focus to her lashes. While not a completely smoky look, Middleton has embraced lash-lengthening mascara in a clean application that highlights each one.

To top it off, she has also been using a bit of dark eyeshadow on her upper lid and forgoing the heavy eyeliner look of the past. All in all, Middleton is growing into her role as the Dutchess of Cambridge, and she seems to be even more stunning with every social appearance.

If you'd like a no frills lash look, try blinc Mascara. This innovative product encases your lashes in tubes which will prevent your makeup from flaking, running and smudging throughout the day.

According to Hello Magazine, different lashes require a change of mascara, so keep your eyes open when shopping for cosmetics.

Short and thick lashes will need a product that can give them added volume. Thin lashes require two coats, one at the roots and then another for the full lash. Thick lashes only need a bit near the base and can be highlighted at the tips.

Longer lashes are a bit different as thinner ones will need a gradual application while long and thick lashes will need a bit of separation to help them shine through. Lastly, don't underestimate how effective a lash curler can be - it can help to lengthen and add extra definition without having to pile on cosmetics.

If you're in the market for no-hassle eye makeup, blinc Mascara could be your best bet. This innovative product encases your lashes in tubes which will protect them from running, smudging or flaking throughout the day.

After scrambling from class to class, heading to the gym and then for a night on the town, your makeup look could fall by the wayside. Mascara in particular is one product that every college female can't do without, but those who live an active lifestyle will need something that can keep up with them.

Waterproof mascaras have become very popular for ladies who are constantly on-the-go and can sometimes work up a sweat. However, these products can apply in extremely thick layers, and you'll have to compensate with the rest of your outfit.

Fall fashion is much like spring where you can effectively bridge between two seasons, so finding a style that works for you is all a matter of preference.

Autumn fashion is known for its deep and bold colors that can be incorporated in everything from eyeshadow to lip color. Some of the hottest styles this fall are bronze, light brown and mauve eyeshadow, and the best part about these hues is that they can easily be combined with other shades for a personalized touch.

Pairing your new shade of eye makeup with mascara is a chic way to perk up your fall style. However, since fall temperatures can be warm one day and cold the next, you need a product that can keep up with the fickle weather.

The underground stays plenty warm long after summer is over, so fashionistas need to take extra care to ensure that their look isn't in shambles by the time they get to the office.

Try to keep it simple for the office. You're probably scrambling to get out the door in the morning anyway, so putting on a heavy layer of eyeshadow or eyeliner may not be the best choice. A few layers of mascara and a nude foundation could be a fabulous way to stay chic at work.

If you want to be adventurous in the morning, use a bright lip color that can go with your outfit. A good rule of thumb is to use a bold lip color with a neutral outfit that can really stand out, and use a softer shade if you're wearing a vibrant ensemble.

Instead of painting your lashes every morning and worrying about them flaking or running, use blinc Mascara. This product will encase your lashes in tubes for a carefree look that will last all day long.

Luckily, there are a number of treatments that you can undertake to ensure that they are looking fabulous during any season.

First and foremost, make sure that you remove your makeup before you go to bed! Mascara that is left on overnight can make lashes brittle and cause significant damage. It's always handy to carry a bit of makeup remover in your purse, or opt for cosmetics that can come off with a bit of warm water and pressure.

An eyelash curler is a very important step, but you should be sure never to clamp it too tightly, as this could cut or permanently damage your lashes. Lastly, always use your curler first and then mascara, not the other way around.

You can take steps to improve the health and appearance of your lashes with blinc Lash Primer. This handy product works to moisturize and add volume to your lashes in a daily treatment that can revitalize your look.

A lash curler could be the ideal choice for many ladies, but finding one that is up to the task is a different challenge in itself.

A lash curler can help your lashes get a revitalized look and help your makeup to be applied evenly. The best products are those that have a flat rubber end that is gentle on your lashes. If you have trouble with the outer corners of your eyes, look for a smaller curler for those hard-to-reach areas.

Ladies should avoid curling too close to the base of their lashes. This can potentially damage the roots and leave you worse off than you were when you started. Heated curlers have also become popular, but they aren't as effective as a standard product and a bit of patience.

If you're looking to revitalize the look of your lashes, try blinc Long Lash. It is designed to enhance the fullness, length and volume of your lashes after only two weeks of use.

Whether you go for expensive lengthening treatments or use false lashes, it can be a wasted expense when there are so many better options out there to jazz up the look of your eyes.

These fake lashes require quite a bit of preparation to pull off, so they're not exactly something that you'll go for in the morning when you're trying to get out the door.

Want to be the center of attention without even opening your mouth? If you want to get noticed the next time you're out and about, it makes sense to start with the first thing everyone sees - your eyes.

Making sure your peepers command attention starts with making sure they're unique. But that doesn't mean you have to have lavender irises a la Elizabeth Taylor. No matter your eye color, you can steal a few glances by applying a shimmery shadow that's impossible to ignore. Opt for a nude color that's subtle while still being sultry and sophisticated.

Next, really make your eyes stand out by applying a few coats of tube mascara. This will widen your eyes and darken your lashes, making your pretty peepers the star of the evening. Applying a little liner around the corners of your eyes will make them pop even more.

So bat your lashes at the next cute guy you see - he won't be able to resist your charm!

Is a lash comb something you should invest in?

Some mascaras are known to cause lumps and clumps, no matter how carefully you apply them - especially if you're already blessed with thick, long lashes. If your lashes are constantly getting tangled, a lash comb is an excellent way to separate them, so that each lash stands out even more beautifully than before.

Using a lash comb is an easy way to make your eyes look wider, brighter and more youthful in just a few seconds. With no clumps or tangles, your lashes can reach for the sky all day long.

Don't want to mess around with combs? You can also try tube mascara, which is less likely to clump than a traditional one. Since tube mascaras are, like lash combs, designed to separate and highlight individual lashes, they're perfect for women who want a polished look every time.
For results that are truly out of this world, use a lash comb before applying tube mascara. That way, nobody will be able to ignore your pretty peepers.

But if you only have a single type of mascara, you may be missing out. The pros have a big secret - mix-and-match mascara can yield amazing results!

Looking for length and volume? You don't have to settle for just one mascara. Try two separate types, one designed to lengthen and one designed to add lots and lots of volume. That way, your peepers will be framed by a fringe so long and thick, one bat of those pretty lashes will be enough to have any guy head over heels.

Apply the first mascara and allow to dry - it's best to start with the lengthening product. Then follow up with the second mascara, and sweep away excess with a clean mascara wand. Use a lash comb if you find that the two mascaras tend to clump or tangle.

You can also mix regular mascara with tube mascara. Just be sure to apply the tube mascara first, and use a gentle touch when adding a second product for added thickness and length.

<![CDATA[To coat or not to coat: Should you use mascara on your bottom lashes? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 09:07:15 +0000 raveinfo Applying makeup is fun - especially when you consider how many different options you have! If you want to make a dramatic impression at a fancy soiree, you may want to go for a smoky eye that's impossible to ignore. On the other hand, if you're just heading into the office for another day of meetings, a nude eye with just a tad of shimmer is all the occasion requires. And when it comes to applying mascara, you have a key choice to make: Should you coat your bottom lashes?

If you want to make sure your peepers pop, applying mascara to both your top and bottom lashes is a great way to make your eyes look wider and brighter. If you wear eyeliner on the bottom of your eye, a swipe or two of tube mascara on your lower lashes is a great way to open up your eyes.

However, if you get a little overzealous with the mascara, you could wind up with a "Clockwork Orange" look. Make sure you use a light touch on your bottom lashes, or skip them altogether if you want all the focus to be on your eyeshadow and eyebrows.

<![CDATA[How do heated lash curlers work? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 09:05:37 +0000 raveinfo how+do+heated+lash+curlers+work_3356_800672898_0_0_14042160_300Not everybody is naturally blessed with lashes that curl towards the sky without the aid of some special cosmetic tools. If you're like most of us and need a little help to make that fringe look fantastic, you're in luck - a heated lash curler is your ticket to dramatic lashes that make your peepers pop. But why, exactly, do heated lash curlers work so well?

As it turns out, the reason that a heated lash curler works so well is the same reason that your blowdryer turns your wavy locks pin-straight. Heat breaks down the bonds that give hair its shape, allowing you to remold it any way you like - not unlike how hot candle wax is easy to manipulate, but cold candle wax is totally solid.

Your eyelashes actually aren't much different from the hair on your head. And just like a curling iron can give you pretty waves all evening long, a heated lash curler can give your lashes a lasting curl that won't fade as the day (or night) wears on.

If you've been on the hunt for an easy to give your makeup routine a little extra oomph, start off with a lash curler that uses heat for maximum styling potential. Apply a coat or two of mascara after curling for unbelievably dramatic eyes in no time.

<![CDATA[What can lash primer do for you? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 09:03:50 +0000 raveinfo Do you have thin, sparse lashes? If so, a good deal of your makeup routine is probably devoted to trying to make that fringe darker, thicker and longer. But no matter how hard you work to make your lashes stand out, you might notice that your makeup is fading by midday. But don't fret - lash primer can help!

Like primer for your face and eyelids, lash primer is designed to help your makeup last longer and look better doing it. Lash primer coats your lashes and provides a surface for your favorite mascara to adhere to, so it'll last all day long - even through rubbing, watery eyes, rain and anything else life can throw at you.
To make sure your eyes stand out and look beautiful, start with your favorite liner and shadow. Once that's finished, apply lash primer to both your upper and lower lashes. Allow to dry, then follow up with your favorite mascara. Use tube mascara for added length and volume that's completely smudge-proof!

Great eye makeup starts with the right base, so don't skip the lash primer if you're looking for a fringe that's fantastic from morning 'til night.

<![CDATA[The three products you need to create sultry, sexy eyes ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 09:01:47 +0000 raveinfo What does it take to create eyes that no guy can resist? As it turns out, you don't necessarily need a plethora of expensive makeup products to make peepers that pop. We'll tell you the three products every gal should have if she wants a fringe that's fabulous.

1. Liquid eyeliner. Unlike pencil liners, liquid liners won't smudge, fade or run. Once they're set, you can count on 'em looking great all day long. The only issue is application - making a straight line takes some practice, but it's worth it.

2. Shimmery shadow. Sexy shadow in a few of your favorite colors will really help take your look to the next level. If you're a natural gal, opt for neutral pinks, golds and silvers. If you're a little more bold with your cosmetics, try bright blues, purples and greens. And if you want a tried-and-true bedroom look, you can't go wrong with smokey greys and blacks.

3. Mascara. Lash primer, tube mascara and a heated lash curler are all you need to take your lashes from drab to fab. Start with the curler, then apply primer. Once it's dry, finish off with your favorite mascara.

<![CDATA[Who needs false lashes when you've got lash primer? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 09:00:49 +0000 raveinfo Ever been tempted by the fake lashes at your local drug store? Who hasn't? They promise to create length and volume in seconds, for just a few bucks. But there's actually a much easier way to achieve the dream fringe you desire - all it takes is lash primer and tube mascara.

False lashes require a messy glue that sticks to your fingers all day long. Plus, if they're off by just a centimeter or two, you'll be uncomfortable for the duration of your event. And you're always at risk of having one fall off - what could be more awkward than walking around with a false eyelash dangling off your face, or worse yet, catching one in your hand while in the middle of a conversation?

Luckily, you can achieve a false lash look without a single squirt of eyelash glue thanks to lash primer. Starting out with this ingenious product coats your lashes in a wear-resistant gel, giving your mascara something to adhere to so it won't fade or smudge as you go about your day.

Plus, using tube mascara over your lash primer will give you unbelievable volume and length - and you won't have to worry about it slipping or sliding like a false lash might!

However, just because the holidays are over doesn't mean you have to stop using it altogether! In fact, according to the New York Times, glitter is a great way to add a certain mystique to your look in no time at all.

"Embellished and dramatic makeup just feels right at this moment," Rachel Goodwin, a makeup artist for Chanel, told the news source. "It's like a science fiction movie, a Stanley Kubrick thing."

So the next time you're getting ready to hit the town, stop for a moment and consider the glitter. Paired with your lash curler, you'll have a dazzling and irresistible look that's sure to turn a few heads as you make your way through the evening. Naturally, you don't want to set your sights on outdoing a flashy runway model, or you may end up blinding a few people, but a simple hint of glitter can do wonders!

<![CDATA[Three tips for getting the most out of your mascara ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:57:31 +0000 raveinfo Want sky-high lashes, but don't quite know how to get them? If your current lash style just isn't cutting it, you may not be getting the most out of your beauty products. Here are three tips to make your peepers pop!

1. Try a heated lash curler. Traditional lash curlers may give your lashes some bend for the moment, but it tends to fall flat after a few minutes. A heated curler, however, can give you the drama you're looking for all day (and night) long - just like a curling iron for your hair!

2. Add eyeliner. Eyeliner can give the illusion that your lashes are thicker than they actually are. Apply it to your top lid and your waterline for lashes that are instantly more voluminous - even before you apply mascara.

3. Use tube mascara. Tube mascara is designed to lengthen lashes, add volume and last all day long without a single smudge. If traditional mascara hasn't worked for you, tube mascara could be your answer.

<![CDATA[Three reasons to try tube mascara ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:56:09 +0000 raveinfo Is tradition mascara not giving you the bold, beautiful lashes you've been dreaming of? Perhaps it's time to trade in your drugstore cosmetics and upgrade to something a little more serious. Here are three reasons you should consider giving tube mascara a try.

1. It adds volume, length and thickness. Most mascaras purport to do only one - but tube mascara can do all three! Because it's made up of small fibers that actually adhere to your lash, it gives you more volume, longer length and denser thickness than any other product - yet still looks totally natural.

2. It won't smudge. From getting teary-eyed at the movies with your boyfriend to being caught in an expected downpour without your umbrella, there are a million reasons you mascara might run. Luckily, with tube mascara, you don't have to worry about any smudges - no matter what happens.

3. It's easy to remove. At the end of a long day, all you want is to get your makeup off, right? And no one wants to have scrub over and over again with harsh makeup removers to get rid of heavy, thick mascara that leaves you looking like you've got two black eyes. Tube mascara comes off with nothing more than gentle rubbing and warm water!

<![CDATA[What can a heated lash curler do for you? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:48:07 +0000 raveinfo If you want lashes that reach for the sky, the usual mascara just won't do it. You need something with a little more oomph - that special tool that can push your look over the edge. You need a heated lash curler.

Just like a heated curling iron can give your hair volume, bounce and shape that lasts all evening long, a heated lash curler will give your lashes that skyward tilt for a night that's unforgettable. Clamp the curler over the lashes and hold for five to 10 seconds before releasing. Then apply your mascara as usual to set the look. Finish off with your favorite liquid eyeliner for peepers no one can miss!

For a daytime style that's subtle yet sexy, start by curling your fringe using your heated lash curler, then applying a mascara in brown or grey instead of black - it's less harsh. Skip the eyeliner for a natural, feminine look. And if you can't resist a little sparkle, add a dab of shimmery nude eyeshadow for maximum impact. Your eyes will look open and alert all day long - even if you were burning the midnight oil the night before.

It's that easy - you can transform your whole look with this one simple tool.

<![CDATA[Tips and tricks to lengthen your eyelashes ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:47:00 +0000 raveinfo We can't all be blessed with lashes that reach for the sky naturally. But luckily, even if what Mother Nature gave you is lacking in the length department, there are plenty of ways to fake a to-die-for fringe.

The first step towards adding length to your lashes is using a lash primer. Much like primers for your face and eyelids, lash primer is designed to give your makeup something to adhere to, while putting a protective barrier between your cosmetics and your skin and hair. A few good coats of lash primer under your favorite mascara will add length, volume and strength to your fringe, without doing damage or exposing your delicate lashes to chemicals and additives.

Another great way to add some serious extensions to your eyelashes is with a heated lash curler. A lash curler is an easy-to-use tool that helps make your peepers pop by sending your lashes skyward - and, like a heated flat iron, a heated lash curler uses temperature to make that curve more permanent. Use a heated lash curler before applying mascara to give your lashes a pretty bend that'll make sure your eyes are the star of the show.

<![CDATA[How to get dramatic lashes for a night on the town ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:45:57 +0000 raveinfo how+to+get+dramatic+lashes+for+a+night+on+the+town_3356_800716202_0_0_14016494_300Making yourself stand out in the crowd doesn't have to be tough! Every gal wants to catch the eye of that cute guy at the bar, and - not surprisingly - the secret to stealing his heart is all in the peepers. Here's how to make sure your baby blues or soulful browns are impossible to miss next time you're out on the town.

First, don't shy away from shimmer. A little bit of glitz is the perfect way to make yourself noticeable - but it's all about staying subtle. A nude shade with just a hint of shimmery shine is the perfect way to make your eyes the center of attention. Brown-eyed gals should try pinks and golds, while blue-eyed beauties can experiment with silver and white.

The next step is making sure those lashes flutter whenever you bat your eye. Add some extra length with a lash primer, so you can get the most out of any mascara. Then use a heated lash curler to make sure that fringe is unstoppable.

Finally, don't forget the eyeliner. Make sure your peepers are popping with a swipe of pencil eyeliner along your upper and lower lash lines. Stick to the waterline for a look that's dramatic without being overdone.

<![CDATA[Can your lash curl last all day? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:44:49 +0000 raveinfo gals+who+are+serious+about+making+their+eye+makeup+perfect+know+that+a+good+look+starts+with+a+good+curl_3356_800716205_0_0_7070087_300Gals who are serious about making their eye makeup perfect know that a good look starts with a good curl. But getting your lashes to reach skyward and stay that way can be tough. How can you make sure your eyelash curl lasts all day long?

First, start with a heated lash curler. Like flat irons and hot rollers, heated lash curlers use the power of heat to give your lashes some serious curl. Just like the hair on your head stays curled longer when styled with heat, your lashes will reach for the sky all day if you start off styling them with a hot curler.

To make your curl last, finish your look with a few generous swipes of mascara. A good mascara will help seal in your curl - kind of like what hairspray does for your tresses.

For added length, apply a lash primer under your mascara. Your curl will be even more noticeable when your lashes are practically brushing your brows.

<![CDATA[The three best things you can do for your lashes ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:43:14 +0000 raveinfo We put a lot of time and effort into taking care of the hair on top of our heads, so why do totally ignore our lashes? After all, they're one of our most feminine attributes - and they need a little TLC every once in a while, too. Here are three great things you can do to help your lashes look their best.

1. Use a lash primer. Lash primer coats your fringe before you apply thick coats of heavy mascara, which means your hair won't be damaged by chemicals or additives. Plus, lash primer will help give your mascara a surface to adhere to - meaning it won't smudge or fade, even on your longest days.

2. Use a heated lash curler. A big occasion calls for styled hair, so why not styled lashes? Like a curling iron, a heated lash curler uses hot metal to give you lashes a bend that'll last all day long. You can bat that fringe to your heart's content and it'll keep on pointing skyward.

3. Use a good makeup remover. At the end of a long day, you lashes need a wash. Don't rely on soap and water - use a good makeup removing cleanser to get rid of all your eyeliner, mascara, shadow and whatever else you wear.

There are many prescription and over-the-counter drugs that claim to nourish lashes and help them grow long and strong. If you want your natural lashes to become thicker and more noticeable, you may want to speak to your doctor about these options. If you're not quite ready for that kind of intervention, however, you can fake it 'til you make it with the right cosmetics.

The first thing you'll need to invest in is a lash primer. Lash primer is the base that your mascara will stick to, so your makeup can last all day. Plus, it adds some extra length and thickness to your fringe, so you can bat those lashes to your heart's content.

The next step in achieving impossible lash length is a heated lash curler. This styling tool uses the power of heat to give your lashes a curl that won't fade or fall, no matter how long you day is!

You might not be able to add real length to your lashes, but with these tricks, no one will know the difference.

<![CDATA[Longer lashes without a prescription ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:39:51 +0000 raveinfo You've probably been hearing a lot of buzz about the new lash-lengthening products that you can get from your doctor. While the thought of having lush, luxurious lashes is definitely something that most women want, there are some downsides to prescription products.

For starters, the cost of lash-growing prescriptions is pricey. Some cost around $120, and you have to keep using it everyday to maintain the length of your lashes - when you stop, they'll go right back to having the length and fullness that you started with. It also can take up to four months to see results.

Some people have even experienced side effects like hyperpigmentation around the eyes, redness and irritation and even discolored irises, reports Eyelash-growth.com. Instead of shelling out the money to get these prescription lash treatments, try out blinc's Long Lash eyelash enhancer.

Simply apply it twice a day to the base of your lashes, like you'd do with a liquid eyeliner. You should start noticing fuller, longer lashes in as little as two weeks! Long Lash, combined with lash primer and tube mascara, will have your lashes looking gorgeous in no time - no prescription necessary!

<![CDATA[Do extra long lashes call for glasses adjustments? ]]> Fri, 17 May 2013 08:36:35 +0000 raveinfo Eyelashes are becoming one of the main focal points of many women's faces, thanks to inventions like tube mascara, fake lashes and products like blinc's long lash  eyelash enhancer. While lengthening your lashes is certainly a gorgeous way to update your look, it might cause a bit of annoyance when you put on your favorite frames.

According to Allure Magazine, opticians have been experiencing an increase in the amount of women coming in for eyeglass adjustments to accommodate lengthy fringe. It's certainly not comfortable to have your lashes dragging on the lenses of your glasses every time you blink, so it's no wonder ladies have been seeking a fix.

If you've been using long lash or simply have lens-grazing lashes when you wear your tube mascara, all you need is a quick adjustment. An optician will simply adjust the pantoscopic tilt of your glasses, moving the top of the frames father away from your face and the bottom rim closer to your cheeks, reports the news source. Feel free to put on those glasses and blink away!
