If you haven’t caught the buzz of long lashes and mascara yet, how are you even real about your beauty life? We’re the dorkiest of them all when it comes to lashes and ways to do mascara. And being someone who has quite long lashes, I do claim to know my mascara game quite alright (being all sassy here, I know!). So here are some of the best mascara hacks:
How To Get Volume
To get voluminous lashes, preheat your eyelash curler, let it cool a bit and then bend your eyelashes. The heat works the same way as you curl your hair with an iron.
How To Get Thick Lashes
To get thick lashes, apply a few layers of mascara. Apply powder with another brush and then apply some final coats of mascara. The powder makes the lashes look thicker!
How To Get Fuller Looking Lashes
Without adding the falsies, you can create the illusion of more lashes by using the eyeliner. Do the eyeliner on the inside of the upper lid, then apply your mascara and voíla your lashes will look fuller!
How To Apply Mascara properly
The proper way of doing it is to put the brush by the roots of your lashes. Then slowly drag the brush outwards, while doing this, carefully pull the brush from right to left. Imagine creating a zig-zag pattern on your lashes. Repeat 4-5 times depending on how you want them!
And a bonus tip
As big nerds of a nice eyeliner on the upper lid, we gurantee that a good liner will also help your lashes look fuller. If you don’t want to go for a full eyeliner wing, make small dots/strokes on your lash line with an eyeliner pencil. This will make the lashes look fuller and thicker!

Who knew you could heat up your eyelash curler. Makes sense though, if heat works for the hair on our heads, then it should work for lashes. Great hacks girl.
Thank you love! Xx
Japonesque has a heated eyelash curler that I love! I don’t use it as often as I should. I’m definitely an advocate of beautiful and lush lashes 🙂
Didn’t know that but sounds so good! Xx

Those are AWESOME tips as my lashes are extremely important in my daily make up routine! Thanks for that one! Such a cool topic and post!! Happy Weekend!! xo

I am afraid to heat the eyelash curler, it feels like when I do that, my lashes will be burnt! I know it is not gonna happen, however, that fear stops me from doing that 🙂 Layering mascara to get volume is what I do all the time, with a few layers, I get really big lashes 🙂 x
Haha same here, but I’ve gotten over it and only makes it warm and not hot! Xx
Awesome hacks! Need to try some. Thanks for sharing!

Tightlining and choosing the right mascara are my hacks. Everything else, like the powder etc, are just way too much effort for me.

These are really great tips! I always layer my mascaras, sometimes using two different mascaras; one for curl and length and the other for volume.
