having the perfect eyelashes doesnt take as long as you think. these are three easy steps to get those babies beautiful

Having beautiful eyelashes in important for anyone wearing mascara. When he looks into those dreamy bedroom eyes let him appreciate how long and lush your eyelashes are. Work toward having the perfect eyelashes with three easy steps.

Step 1=the curl

For eyelashes to highlight your eyes, they need to frame your eyes. Framing takes making those lashes the perfect shape. This means investing in a good eyelash curler. There are tons of great curlers on the market for an extremely reasonable price is most cases. This is a beauty must have if you are the type of gal that wears mascara regularly.

Curl your eyelashes before applying your mascara. This makes it easier to curl them later as well as lifting and separating the lashes for a much more even coat of mascara. If you happen to be born with lashes that point downward naturally, curling is a definite must.

Step 2=the coat

Applying the mascara after curling requires a formula that suits your needs and makes your eyes look their best. Everyone does have different lashes and what works for you may not work for your friend. You may need to experiment with different formulas and brands to determine what works best for you. Additionally select mascara for day and one for evening wear. Some lashes need more volume to look better. Others will require volume along with length. Do you like color? All of these things should be considered when deciding what mascara screams you.

Double dip the mascara wand and allow it to air dry for a few seconds. Many people make the mistake of applying the wand directly from the bottle to the lash. Giving the wand a few seconds to air dry will permit the mascara from being too liquid when you apply to your lashes.

Being to apply the mascara at the base of your lashes, wiggle the wand left to right as you sweep it to the ends of the lash. The combination of wiggling from left to right as you sweep toward the end of the lash will capture more of your eyelash and get as much of the lash coated with the mascara as possible. Repeat the process several times across the lash. Do a few up and down sweeps on the eyelash to assure the mascara is completely smoothed out. Dip the wand and repeat the entire process with a second coat of mascara. Do not wait for the first coat to dry before applying the second coat of mascara.

Step 3=finish curl

This is the repeat curl process. After your mascara has been applied, repeat the eyelash curl. The finishing curl is the most important step in the process.

The first curl is for preparation. The finish curl gives the eyelash the fun and sexy or flirty shape.

Wait until eyelashes have completed dried before doing your curl. Don’t do a curl when your eyelashes are still wet or tacky. This time warm the curler using your hair dryer. A few seconds under the hair dryer is all it takes to get the curler ready. When you begin curling your lashes you need get a feel for how hard you press the curler to get the lash perfect. A great way to get the curl you desire is to begin the curl further away, towards the end of the lashes the first couple of times you begin. To make certain the curler isn’t too hot for your lashes, test it on your hand first after warming.

These are the three easy steps to beautiful lashes morning, noon and night.

Bonus=Falsies

A much more dramatic look can be had using falsies. Those beautiful lashes that you see on the red carpet when you watch the Oscar awards and other high society functions. Have you seen those lashes on Eva Longolia? Would you like to have those? You can. This bonus will give your lashes just a little poof.

Adding a fake lash to your eye can be done with a little know how and patience. You can go with a half lash or the full lash for the full effect. Add the eye lash to the eye by adding the glue to the eyelash with your finger, whether you use a half a full lash. Make certain you have a thin line of glue without globs. The lashes should be placed as close to your natural eye lash line as possible without putting it directly on this line. Hold the false eyelash in place with your finger for at least 10 seconds to ensure a hold takes place.

There you are, bat those babies!

      I usually just do one curl and don't finish with a second curl. I'll have to try that sometime!

      smcopywrite: What a clear, helpful, useful explanation of the necessary steps to curling eyelashes which then will get mascara and re-curling! In particular, it is most helpful the way in which you explain how to curl and apply mascara and where to do so on the eyelash.

      Thank you for sharing, etc.,

      ~ Thanks for your wonderful post~! I love all articles about eyelashes, mascara, as I have really straight lashes and when curled makes my eyes look bigger, amazing and gorgeous..

      I so love sharing with others about great products.~ The best ever`` heated eyelash curler I have ever found is the Hot Lashes eyelash curler, makeup Artist kit. Loved the reviews on Amazon and was impressed. There is also a site of the same name Hot Lashes.

      This curler is exactly like the Shu Uemura curler with a 24K gold plated curler and this small heater base. Keeps my lashes curling till the next day. and my eyes really pop... Happy Holidays...HTH~
