The Eyes Have It - How To Fake Gorgeous Lashes

Posted on November 07 2015

Mascara is the protagonist in my make-up routine.

Coral lips and eyeliner play great supporting cast roles and flushed cheeks often make cameo appearances. However mascara is where the main game's at. I can never stop marvelling at the impact it has on my look. It makes my eyes look bigger, brighter and so very feminine. As someone who uses Mascara so often, I have come to realise that some will voluminise and not curl (I have a phobia of eyelash curles btw -  just putting it out there) while others will curl but not lengthen.

In order to work mascara better, I tried layering them on.

This requires skill, because otherwise you will end up with clumpy mascara which means intense weight training for your lids - something they definitely don't need.

 

LOOK 1: BIG & BOLD LASHES

 

 

 Step 1: Curl & Seperate

Use Maybelline's Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara (Rs 275) to curl and lift lashes. It has a curved spiky wand that has long bristles on one side and shorter on the other. Press the long bristle end of the wand as close to the base of your upper lashes as possible and wiggle upwards. Coat your bottom lashes with the shorter bristle part to ensure maximum curl and separation.

 Step 2: Darken and Voluminise

Use Maybelline's Colossal Volum' Express Mascara (Rs 375) to add volume and major drama to your lashes. The colour is matte black and the round, bristle heavy wand does an ace job at dispersing formula over your lashes. Start mid lash, wiggle upwards and outwards (towards your ears). Repeat this step again this time by wiggling upwards and inwards (towards your nose).

 LOOK 2: LONG, LIFTED LASHES FOR EVERYDAY

 

 

Step 1: Curl & Seperate

Use Maybelline's Hyper Curl Volum' Express Mascara to curl and seperate as above

Step 2: Lengthen and Extend

Maybelline's Falsies Volum' Express Mascara (Rs 475) lengthens and extends your lashes to give you a fuller eyelash appearance but the formula isn't as thick as the Colossal Volum' Mascara making it absolutely perfect for everyday wear. Plus, this one isn't water proof which makes it lighter on your lids and easier to remove. The wand is curved with most of the bristles on the curved side. Hold the wand vertically and use it to grab the lashes and pull them out and upwards.
