4 Ways To Achieve Full, Long And Luscious Lashes

Hey Lovelies,

Back from the day of Marilyn Monroe, full, long and luscious lashes have been a much sought-after trend. Check out the best tips and tricks to help you achieve the gorgeous lash effect which will totally transform your overall look into one of chic glam.

1.For Fast Lash Growth Choose: AQ Skin Solutions Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancement System, £145 (7ml), www.dermacaredirect.com

This is an amazing product that actually works like a dream to lengthen and create fuller lashes and brows. If (like me) you have gone a little OTT, plucking out a tad more than you perhaps intended – only to discover that for some damn reason, they don’t actually grow back WHERE THEY SHOULD (What the HELL is with that anyway?), this is the go-to solution.

I tried the AQ Skin Solutions Eyelash & Eyebrow System for two months – and it truly works. The natural and serum does not contain any harsh chemicals. It simply works by triggering the natural production of the hair matrix. I began to see a noticeable difference within 4 weeks of use! Result: 9/10.

2.For Glue-On Lashes Choose: Eyelure Cheryl – Lengthening, No. 114 Lashes, £5.25, www.eyelure.com.

As a beauty editor I have tried pretty much every type of false lashes around and Eyelure remain my favourite. I love false lashes but hate, hate, hate it when they randomly fall away from the corner of the eye – and this always happens at the worst possible moment. Worse still, when someone else points it out – but even more troubling when no one has mentioned the fact your lash is no longer fully attached, and you don’t realise until you’ve been home for an hour!

With Eyelure, your lashes truly transform your look and actually stay put until you decide to remove them. This brand offers a huge array of lashes to suit your every mood. However, my favourite is the Cheryl – Lengthening Lashes. They perfectly enhance your eyes, adding just the right amount of volume and length, without being too diva-esque. Result: 9/10.

3.For Longer Looking Lashes Naturally Choose: No7 Lift And Curve Eyelash Curler, £8, www.boots.com

In order to create the eye-popping and fuller, longer lash look without reaching for the falsies, always use an eyelash curler before applying your mascara. This little trick goes a long way in achieving those luscious lashes, of which we all crave.

4.For Fuller Looking Lashes Choose: L’Oréal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes Mascara, £11.99, www.superdrug.com

For must-have full and volume lashes, I highly recommend L’Oréal’s Double Extension Mascara. The 2-step system includes a conditioning white base (coated in Ceramide R of which contains fibres) on one end of the wand. This works to extend the length of your lashes. The other end of the wand contains the mascara. The result is incredible lashes you will love. The only thing I should mention is in order to prevent clumping the following morning, it is imperative you fully cleanse all of the product in the evening.

Over Plucked Brows? Microblading Will Be A Total Game Changer!

Perfectly defined features begin with well-maintained brows. However, over plucking your eyebrows can lead to beauty hell on a daily basis. Not only do you wake up each day looking like you’ve been in a fight with a razor and have to immediately reach for your Kohl and compact mirror before anything else, but over plucked eyebrows are extremely aging.

Thanks to the revolutionary microblading procedure, there’s no need to walk with trepidation to the tattoo parlour in search of a quick-fix solution. Microblading offers natural, semi-permanent and impressive results – so good in fact that your eyebrows look, well, like eyebrows once more.

Microblading is the process of applying small and precise strokes that look just like real hairs. The procedure is effectuated by using a microblading pen, of which allows the technician to individually draw on each stroke. Microblading has received a huge amount of hype due to the unrivalled flawlessly natural finish it achieves. The only drawback is that the procedure takes a couple of hours to complete – but if you compare that to the amount of time (and embarrassment) you will save on a daily basis, it is the obvious choice to make.

Make Sure You Choose A Good Technician

Before going ahead with the treatment do a little research and check the technician’s credentials. Additionally, a good technician will be more than happy to show you photos of their recent work.

A Note To Remember

Avoid exfoliating for 72 hours before having the procedure.

Do not pluck or wax for a few days before your appointment.

Do not use AHAs or retinol before the procedure as this may inflame the skin.

It is advisable for breastfeeding, pregnant women and diabetics not to have the treatment.

Microblading is in my opinion the best option for natural looking semi-permanent brows. However, it will take two, sometime three appointments before you achieve your desired look. Once this has been acquired, you will not have to worry about sharp brows, wiping your forehead or waking up with half a brow missing again (or at least for another 6 months, when you will need a top-up).

Conclusion: Microblading is totally worth it.
