Lengthen your Lashes without Extensions
If you read my story about my first time trying out lash extensions and how I have decided not to go down that beauty road, then you probably know I am on the lookout for other lash enhancing options. There are actually two I know of that I have yet to try, but they are definitely worth knowing about to see if you would want to try them out yourself.
What is the big deal with lashes anyways? Well, we all know with a great mascara you can make your eyes pop, and it takes you from that tired, dull look to one where your eyes look bright and bigger. Bigger eyes makes a face light up more and look more awake. When we feel we look better, we gain confidence and can go to that client dinner looking awake. It is a nice change from being at work all day or in your home office to putting on some great mascara and heading for a night out. It can actually help transform your mood.
Well, I have looked into which mascaras are the best for lash enhancing so you do not waste your time using 6 to 10 layers of product, when great lashes can be achieved through just 2 coats. Also, A new eyelash trend opposed to lash extensions is called the lash perm (or lash lift), which perks up your lashes and can make mascara last longer and work even better.
A lash perm is essentially a perm, but for your eyelashes. Your lashes are curled to the top of your eyelids and held in position with an adhesive. Then, the perm solution, which will make sure the eyelash keeps that shape for anywhere from 1-3 months, is applied. The entire process takes about 45 minutes and costs from $50-$80. It does not require any maintenance or have any restrictions like eyelash extensions. It does make your eyelashes looked curled enough so you do not have to even apply mascara, but if you do, your eyelashes are doubly enhanced and look like you might have even gotten those eyelash extensions.
If you still are averse to playing around too much with your lashes, use one of the best lash enhancing mascaras below and your lashes will be perky and make your eyes look brighter with no nuisance of lashes falling out or lying down with your lashes taped up for an hour.
