Can we talk about eyelashes?
I struggle in the eyelash department. My eyelashes are a bit on the nonexistent side of things. I have tried a few things to compensate.
In 2007 I tried a version of Latisse (the stuff that makes your eyelashes grow), and it worked until I got out of the habit of remembering to use it, and then they went back to nothing again. Then for a whole year (March of 2009 – Feb. of 2010) I wore eyelash extensions, until I realized that they were not a good fit for me. They looked very unnatural. On days when I had little to no makeup on, they stuck out like crazy.
So now I’m back to what I was blessed with – “my nubbins” (sounds like nothings).
What to do…what to do?
Here is something that helps a bit, not a ton, but it’s something.
When I curl my eyelashes, I use my blow dryer to warm up my eyelash curler. In just a few seconds, it will get hot.
(Warning: it gets really HOT! Do not touch near your eye directly after heat.)
I then hold the eyelash curler in my hand for a second to cool it down before taking it directly to my eyelashes. Then just like a warm or hot curling iron, I curl my eyelashes. Let your eyelashes have a minute to cool down and set before putting your mascara on.
I think this tip helps to keep your eyelashes curled longer.
I’d love to know have you ever tried this?
Have you found anything that works when it comes to eyelashes? Favorite potions (like Latisse?) or a favorite mascara?
