Welcome to the third & probably most exciting part of "My Make Up Routine" ♡
I think by now everyone knows that I’m a totaaal „Lash Girl“. If I needed to choose one single make up item to use for the rest of my life I would definitely choose mascara.
Personally I like thick, black and long eyelashes & that's exactly what we want to achieve in today's blogpost.
FYI: I never wear false lashes during the day and I’ve also never had eyelash extensions in my life - just so you knoooow.
WHAT YOU NEED:
Eyelash Curler, Base, Mascara & Cotton Swabs to clean up the mess you made. Everything seems pretty „basic“ except for the Base / Primer, right? Going to talk about this in 1 second!!
But before you’ll ask: In my opinion every single one of this tools is necessary. I use all of them on a daily basis & I would not suggest to leave one out. Also the products and brands I’m using are not randomly chosen but they are the very best I’ve tried so far ♥︎ I’ve been sticking with this base & mascara for about 3 years now (wow, that sounds long). Sometimes I also use the „Best Lash Mascara“ for evening make up looks since the fibers will make it look way more dramatic.
1. NATURAL LASHES
My natural lashes are already pretty long and I have to say that I once used a "Lash Activating Serum" but this was more than 2 years ago - so I don’t think they are that long because of this haha. I guess I just have good genes when it comes to growing long hair, no matter if it’s on my head, brows or eyes. My mom’s lashes look the same by the way.
2. CURL YOUR LASHES
Place your upper lashes inside the mouth of the Lash Curler, look downwards and close the curler. I always do a couple of little „open - close“ movements with the curler - know what I mean? I don’t open and close it completely, I just squeeze it a couple of times before I will head to the other eye. And definitely be careful, don’t pull out your lashes and don’t squeeze your skin! Better re-adjust the curler before something bad happens.
3. APPLY PRIMER
The Lash Base aka. Primer is ESSENTIAL! The other day I tried doing my lashes without the primer (just to be sure about what I’m telling you here) and the result was just half as good. Believe me, try it and learn to love it!
It adds so much volume & length, moisturizes the lashes, makes it somehow waterproof, protects them from breaking & makes the curl last 32903 hours longer. Just apply it like a normal mascara, let it sit there until it’s almost dry (not damp but also not completely hardened) and apply a second layer if you like to.
4. APPLY MASCARA
Take the mascara and start coating your primed lashes with mascara. I always try to get every single lash, especially because I don’t want the white color of the primer to show through. Most of the time I apply the mascara in a zigzag motions & I also make sure that they don’t tangled up. One layer is enough for me.
5. CURL WITH YOUR FINGER
Wait until the mascara almost dried completely. Take your index finger and press your lashes upwards. I do this by looking down & squeezing my lashes on my eyelid. This will enhance the curl of the lashes & make it stay alllll dayyyy longgg.
6. CLEAN UP THE MESS
I am always making a big mess when I do my lashes. That’s also why I apply eyeshadow, eyeliner and stuff after my lashes are ready haha. So just grab a cotton swab and remove all the mascara that landed on your eyelid or underneath your eyes.
7. THE RESULT
That’s basically it ♥︎ As you can see the lashes are pretty dramatic but I always try my best to not end up with spider lashes! Did you all get the steps or would you like me to do a short video?
P.S. If you’ve followed all my steps your lashes will stay all day long! The curl won’t drop and even if you’re sweating or crying - you will not have panda eyes - I promise! I even went surfing in the ocean and my mascara did not smudge!
If you’ve got any questions - let me know in the comments! And what would you like to see as a 4th part of „My Make Up Routine“? Foundation? Contouring?
