How to Extend Your Lashes, Naturally

Now, more than ever, ladies are wanting longer, fuller, flirtier lashes, and it is easier to achieve faster with the rise in popularity of lash extensions over the past few years. But, regardless of how great they look, lash extensions come with a price and could be damaging to your natural lashes & lids. So, if you're not willing to cash in on this trend or put your lashes on the line, then you might want to opt for a variety of ways to extend your lashes naturally.  

In the various ways I've tried to enhance my eyelashes, I've found a few good tricks to make my lashes look longer and fuller. And, they don't involve applying a strip of fake eyelashes everyday. I don't have the patience nor the time to apply fake eyelashes, let alone get them on straight! So, I've put together a list of 4 simple steps to extend your eyelashes naturally



4 Steps to Extend Your Lashes, Naturally

  1. Start with an Eyelash Curler
    Using an eyelash curler is a no brainer for me. I have shorter lashes, so this always creates length and curl from the get-go. Start your lash process with an eyelash curler, and make sure you hold it on your lashes for 5 seconds or longer.

  2. Apply Your Favorite Mascara
    Apply a thin coat of your favorite mascara. This can be any mascara you like! Make sure to apply the mascara on both the front and the back of your lashes. This will ensure fuller eyelashes. Popular mascaras include:

  3. Find a Good Mascara Comb
    This is the key to de-clumping and smoothing out your lashes. Use a second mascara or simply, a mascara wand, that is more like a fine-toothed comb. It's not a mascara brush with soft bristles, but it is more like a mascara comb with rubber bristles. The tougher bristles will help to brush out your lashes without removing any of the mascara.

  4. Try Something New - Extend with Fiber Lashes
    One of the newest products to hit the market is the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes by Younique. This eyelash set is a duo featuring a transplanting gel and natural fibers that you apply to your lashes after mascara to increase thickness, volume and length. These babies will take your lashes to a whole new level in length!

    This step is the icing on the cake. After combing out your lashes, apply the Younique fiber lashes to go the extra mile. First, apply the transplanting gel to set the stage, and then, before the gel dries, apply the fiber lashes. Last step—apply a second layer of the transplanting gel to set the lashes. And, wallah! You will notice longer, fuller lashes immediately.
    I've recently started using the 3D Fiber Lashes, and I must say, I am a huge fan! My lashes are normally short and stubby, but with these steps, I can now lengthen my lashes on the go. No more costly lash extensions or fake eyelash strips. The only cons? You might get a few loose fibers on your lashes or your cheeks. Just brush them off and go.

For a quick final review, skim your lashes to make sure you are clump-free. Use the mascara comb to remove any clumps and to separate your lashes. And, that's it! You are good to go.
