Get longer lashes with Lash Fibers

long lashes
Long beautiful eyelashes are all the rage. I like enhancing the natural lashes to their full potential instead of relying on falsies or expensive lash extensions. Don't get me wrong, false lashes and lash extensions look fabulous, but I for one, don't like the glue. I find it irritating.  And.... my brides are always worried the lashes will start to unglue before the night is over. It can happen. I even saw lashes come unglued on Dancing with the Stars!

Get the most out of your natural lashes!


Start Clean
First, always start with clean lashes. Get rid of any mascara remnants that will interfere with a smooth mascara application. Use an oil free makeup remover and rinse your face for good measure. 

Curl 'em
Curl the top lashes with a lash curler. Warm the curler with a blow dryer to get maximum curl that lasts. Test the curler on your wrist to make sure it's not too hot. Curl lashes 3 times with your eyelash curler at the root, the middle and near the ends.

Waterproof Mascara
Use black mascara on the top lashes. Waterproof mascara helps your lashes hold a curl better than non waterproof. My favorite waterproof mascara is Too Faced Better than Sex Waterproof Mascara.

Make the most of your lashes by fanning them out. After curling your top lashes, pull mascara wand out of the tube wiping excess mascara off of the wand onto the opening of the tube. Apply mascara to your outer lashes first directing them toward your temples. Next, apply mascara to the center lashes directing them toward your brows. Finish the top lashes by applying mascara to the inner lashes directing them toward your nose.

Add Fibers
Add lash fibers to the freshly mascaraed lashes.  You can buy kits that contain a mascara and fibers or just the fibers. Cherry Blooms, Too Faced Better than False Lashes or Physician's Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit are a few kits. I find the tube of fibers last much, much longer than the mascara. Any tube of mascara should be used for only 3 months then tossed due to the high probability of bacteria growth. The lash fibers are dry so they are far less likely to grow bacteria so the tube of lash fibers lasts a long time.

Lash fibers can be used with any mascara. Milani Length in Seconds Lash Extensions is a product that is just fibers that you can use with any mascara. I like the Cherry Blooms fibers because they are black. The lash fibers stick to the mascara. Don't over do it. Just a light coating of fibers will do.

More Mascara
Now add a generous second coat of mascara working it in the fanned out directions sealing in the lash fibers. Some of the fibers will come off onto your mascara wand.

Let them Dry 
Support the lashes with your fingers as the mascara dries for maximum curl.

The Bottom Lashes
Apply a thin coat of black or brown/black mascara to the lower lashes. Just a touch on the bottom lashes to create a balance of color between the top and bottom lashes. We want the top lashes to be the showstoppers.

Now you have comfortable long gorgeous lashes that last all day with no issues! Even through wedding day tears!
