Read on and find out how to get yourself insanely full eyelashes and be the eyelash envy of pretty much everyone…

1. Fake it

The truth of the matter is that there are times in life when you just have to accept that you haven’t been blessed with something, and if that something is eyelashes for you, you’re actually in luck – there are so many options of false lashes on the market, and most of them are pretty fab, so no one will be any the wiser.

2. Work your mascara

Sometimes you may actually surprise yourself and find out that you actually have the goods, you just need to know how to work with them properly. Go for a volumising mascara, and be sure to coat every lash in the product. Start from the root, wiggling the wand back and forth towards the tip, and give the bottom lash line a coat, too. Go in for a second coat to really get those lashes looking all kinds of full.

3. Tint them

Sometimes it might simply be that the colour of the hair that make up your eyelashes is very light, in which case a simple tint could do a world of good. A bit of a darker colour could reveal that your lashes really are insanely full already… winning!

4. Lash extensions

Just like with the hair on your head, if your eyelashes aren’t growing and filling out, you can get yourself eyelash extensions. These make your lashes appear fuller, thicker and longer – and don’t require the effort of putting on your own set of falsies every day. They are applied professionally and will mimic the curl and look of your natural lash, simply enhancing the overall effect.

The added bonus of lash extensions is that they last longer than false lashes, and if the correct home-care is done, they can last up to three weeks before you get any fillers done. No mess, no fuss and the bonus of some pamper time… Yes please!

5. Lift ’em up

Sometimes the problem doesn’t sit with the number of lashes you’ve got, but with the fact that they’re incredibly stubborn, refusing to curl up and out to give you that fullness effect (there’s only so much you can do with that eyelash curler, right?!).

If this is the case, take yourself for a lash lift; it’s basically a perm for your eyelashes, and the technician will work with you to give you the curl, life and overall look you desire – and the effect lasts for up to eight weeks! Well, what are you waiting for?
