You don't always have to pile on the mascara for that eye-catching flutter

Last week, I ran into a girlfriend of mine who instantly fell in love with my lashes, but proclaimed how she would never wear them. She then went on to talk about how she wishes there was a simple way to make her lashes look thicker and fuller without pilling on the mascara.


Well ladies, there are a few ways and I’m here to fill you in on them.


Secret Tip 1: Coat your lashes with Vaseline

Yep! You read correctly. Roll an unused mascara wand lightly in Vaseline and then coat your lashes with them. This will add a glossy effect that will make your lashes pop out and even moisturize and help them grow.


Secret Tip 2: Use Baby Powder

You’ll be using your regular mascara with this trick. Pour a bit of baby powder into a small container. Then, dip a q-tip into the powder and shake off the excess. Close your eyes and lightly sweep on the baby powder. Afterward, add a layer of your favorite mascara. You’ll notice how thicker and even longer your lashes look!

Secret Tip 3:  Heat Up an Eyelash Curler with a Blowdryer

Some women still don’t even know how to use an eyelash curler. But for those who do, applying heat to the curler before using it will help add a significant curl to your lashes. Immediately after you curl your lashes, apply your favorite mascara.
