I’ve gone back and forth for a long time now about eyelash extensions.
I’m sure so many of you follow along via Instagram with some of the big name beauty bloggers and their luscious lashes too. And if I’m being honest, it’s tempting to make the [hefty] investment to mimic their look stunning look!
Let’s take a little trip down memory lane, shall we? I had hair extensions for my wedding, and it was the best.decision.I.ever.made. It made my hair look full, and my curls stayed in tact for the entire night. I wore the extensions for about 4 months after my wedding, and at which point, I got really [I mean really] sick of having long hair, and cut a very short bob (that’s a story for another post). But, I did save my extensions and recently decided to have them put back in. However almost immediately I knew it was a mistake. They made feel somewhat claustrophobic [hard to explain].
Ever since, I’ve been going the au naturel route, so eyelash extensions kind have become much less of a novelty. However, I do still have the desire to achieve long and full lashes on a daily basis. So.. I thought it would be fun to share my current mascara routine with you guys today, in case you’re feeling the same as I am! Okay, here are my 3 easy steps to success!
1. Eyelash Primer – I apply a few coats, on the top lashes only, prior to applying the main mascara. My favorite primer is linked HERE and below.
2. Main Attraction – Follow up with your mascara of choice. I have a few specific brands that I love which I’ve linked below!
3. Lower Eyelashes – Lastly, I apply a small amount of mascara to the lower lash-line. I use a specific mascara that has a smaller brush for this step. That way, there’s no smudging underneath the eye. Linking it HERE.
All done in under two minutes.. What are your lash hacks? Let me know below!
