Next up in our lash struggle series: eyelashes that don’t have volume. Volume, which refers to thick, full, and fluffy lashes, is one of the most sought-after beauty trends. Many factors contribute to how full your natural lashes are, and some, like age and genetics, are out of our control. Thankfully, it’s still possible to achieve a full-volume effect, even if your lashes are a little sparser than you’d like.
Try An Eyelash Curler
Eyelash curlers can make a huge difference in how your lashes look. When used correctly, curlers lift the lashes upward, creating the illusion of longer, thicker lashes. The key to getting a great result from an eyelash curler is following the proper technique. To avoid lash damage, thoroughly remove all eye makeup – especially those last bits of yesterday’s mascara. Then, curl your lashes starting from the base, being careful to avoid pinching your skin or pulling your lashes.
Tweak Your Mascara Application
Simply pulling your mascara wand through your lashes likely won’t give you the full look you’re hoping for. To add volume and length, gently wiggle the wand from left to right as you pull up through your lashes (if you’re doing it right, your wand should make a little “z” shape). Repeat this process along your lash line until you’ve coated every lash. Don’t be afraid to go in for a second or third coat to get an even fuller effect! If your mascara is clumping or too thin to create volume, play around with some different brands until you find one that works well with your natural lashes.
Brush Your Lashes
Eyelashes are made of hair, and just like the hair on our head, require grooming to look their best. Gently brushing your makeup-free lashes prevents them from tangling and distributes the natural oils found along your lash line, which can help you grow naturally fuller lashes. When brushing, be sure to use a clean lash wand and avoid pulling or tugging, as you may end up doing more harm than good.
Invest In A Lash Serum
A high-quality lash serum can help your eyelashes grow thicker, longer, and fuller.
