Tips and tricks for luscious lashes.

There's nothing quite like full, lush eyelashes to add feminine allure. A thick fringe of lashes frames your eyes, so they shine jewel-bright and give your face a youthful softness. So how do you get them? Here are five must-haves for your best lashes yet.

 

1. Lash Enhancer

There's not much you can do to play up your lashes if they're short and stumpy so Medik8 Full Lash and Brow Duo should be your go to serum that nourishes and hydrates lashes, making them more resilient and less brittle. But this isn't just a conditioning treatment; it also has a peptide complex that encourages healthy hair growth, for noticeably fuller and longer lashes. The formula is non-irritating and can also be used on your eyebrows.

2. Eyelash Curler

Even the longest lashes won't have nearly as much impact if they aren't curled. Just a quick squeeze with an eyelash curler will give your lashes much more impact, making your eyes look open and bright. We like Cherry Blooms Pink Eyelash Curler because it curls the lashes at the outer corners of your eyes without pinching. It's also pretty, and if any tools should be pretty, make up tools should be.

3. Mascara

This is probably the main thing women do to enhance their lashes -- and for good reason! Mascara is quick and effective at giving you longer, darker, and thicker lashes. Modern formulas even offer conditioning benefits, so your lashes are left stronger and more supple. Cherry Blooms Brush on Fibre Eyelash Extensions is a kit with a simple 3-step process to build up lashes with black fibres to give you long, sweeping lashes. It conditions lashes and is water-resistant and smudge-proof.

Another good choice for dramatic lashes is Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Mineral Lengthening Mascara. Its exclusively-designed brush sweeps the nourishing formula smoothly from root to tip. This mascara separates and lengthens each lash for a volumising effect. It is long-wearing and flake-and smudge-proof.

If your day calls for a waterproof mascara, try Glo Skin Beauty Water Resistant Mascara. It thickens and lengthens your lashes with a sooty black colour that will not budge, no matter what the weather (or tears) may bring. And yet this powerhouse formula drenches lashes in nutrients and is gentle enough for sensitive wearers.

4. Faux Lashes

Some occasions call for an extra shot of glamour. For that romantic dinner out or sultry night on the town, nothing tops a set of faux lashes. Silk Oil of Morocco Vegan Top Strip Lashes in Allure are a great way to try out this feminine look for yourself. These lashes are made of vegan products and hand tied for a natural look. They are easy to apply and will give your lashes instant length and volume. They can be used up to 10 times.

5. Eyeliner

When eyeliner is applied along the lash line, it creates a visual effect that makes lashes look lush and full. For a dramatic line, nothing beats a liquid liner such as Youngblood Eye-Mazing Liquid Liner Pen. The pen shape makes it easy to stroke on an intensely coloured line and is excellent for creating winged or cat-eye looks. It dries quickly, leaving a vibrant shade that will not smudge. This liquid liner comes in five deeply pigmented colours.

For a more subtle look, a pencil eyeliner like INIKA Organic Eye Liner will give you a softer line. It comes in a rainbow of colours, and blends natural plant ingredients and mineral colour for a formula that glides over your skin with a creamy texture. This non-irritating eyeliner lasts all day without smudging.

No matter what eye make up you choose, be sure to take care of your eyes and the delicate skin around them with a gentle make up remover. Pelactiv Eye and Lip Make Up Remover is a cooling remover with rosewater and allantoin to moisturise and soothe. This pampering formula will sweep away even waterproof make up and leaves skin soft, not oily.
