How to Use Two Types of Mascara For Longer, Thicker Eyelashes
Not working with much here....
I will be the first person to admit, I am lacking in eyelashes. It is actually kind of tragic. I have, oh, I don't know, maybe 10 eyelashes at most. OK, so that is really underestimating my eyelashes, but I don't have much. When it comes to putting on mascara, I wouldn't be surprised if the mascara brush did not laugh at me. Now that super long, thick eyelashes are more popular than ever before, I feel like I need to step up my look.
I will not, however, wear false eyelashes. I am worried they might pull out what little bit of real eyelashes I actually have. Yes, I know they are not supposed to do that, but I have bad luck and don't like anything near my eyes. I am just not going to take my chances. So basically, I've learned some techniques to make my eyelashes look thicker by using two types of mascara.
To make this look work for you, you are basically going to need to purchase two different types of mascara. You might even have them in your make-up bag already, but never thought to combine the two. Well, today is the day your mascara is going to learn about teamwork. It is all about combining the two mascaras to get the best results.
The first mascara you are going to need is CoverGirl LashBlast. I remember when this first came out about 4 or 5 years ago. Drew Barrymore was batting her eyes on that commercial and, oh, how I wanted to look like her. My mission to find the perfect mascara began at that time. I got LashBlast and was very impressed.
LashBlast makes your eyelashes look thicker than other standard brands. At the time, this stuff was really cutting edge. I was walking around with thicker eyelashes, although much to my dismay, I still did not look like Drew Barrymore. However, CoverGirl LashBlast was pretty awesome, so I was pleased with the results.
Aside from being good mascara, I would say CoverGirl LashBlast has two other great aspects to it. The first thing is the wand. LashBlast has probably the best wand I've found yet when trying out different mascaras. The brush on the wand really helps prevent clumping, which is a big plus. The second best thing about LashBlast is it is not one of those mascaras that never washes off. It doesn't fade much throughout the day, yet it still easily comes off with just water. I happen to use the standard CoverGirl LashBlast in the orange tube. I doubt the waterproof type washes out that well, for obvious reasons.
L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes
Since LashBlast, many new types of mascara have become available. I've tried Falsies and other brands, but I always went back to CoverGirl LashBlast. Recently, a new type of mascara found its way into stores and into my heart: L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes. This mascara promises the look of wearing false eyelashes without actually wearing false eyelashes. Oh yes, I wanted to learn more.
I read some reviews online, and although Maybelline has a similar product, the reviews for L'Oreal were much more favorable. Not only did this mascara promise longer eyelashes, it promised thicker eyelashes. It also promised no clumps! Well, this I had to see to believe.
I bought L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes and immediately tried it. I was not terribly impressed with the wand or the brush. It seemed like it allowed the mascara to go on in a "chunky" way. However, it did deliver on the promise of making my eyelashes look thicker and longer. This was what I wanted. I did need to think of a remedy for the overly chunky, clumping look though.
Combine the Two Mascaras!
Much to my delight, I found a way to use both mascaras together. If you are having issues with your thin or short eyelashes, I recommend using both CoverGirl LashBlast and L'Oreal Paris Voluminous False Fiber Lashes.
The secret is, put the L'Oreal mascara on first. Keep layering it on your eyelashes until they look really long. After finishing that, then use the CoverGirl LashBlast on it. Not only does that mascara help smooth out the look, the brush on the wand is perfect for getting rid of clumps. The L'Oreal mascara helps add length, whereas the CoverGirl mascara helps give your lashes a smooth, thick look.
From now on, I am using the two mascaras together. You might find that using both will make it difficult to remove the mascara later in the day, but it is definitely not as difficult to remove as some other brands. In the end, I think you will be pleased with the false eyelash look without ever having to buy false eyelashes.
