4 Tips for Longer Looking Lashes!

False Eyelashes. Extensions. Dyeing. We go to great, sometimes extreme, lengths to get thicker, longer lashes. If you’re not naturally gifted with come-hither eyes, follow our four tips to supersized lashes.

When it comes to removing makeup, it’s tempting to scrub the eye area, but being too harsh could result in damage. Whether you’re trying to take-off waterproof mascara or simply cleanse your face, make sure to be gentle around the eye area - your eyelashes will thank you.

Your diet impacts on your whole body – including your eyelashes. If you are well nourished, then your skin and hair will be too. A protein rich diet, and one that includes Vitamins A, C and E, will help promote healthy skin and hair. Get a helping hand from supplements that contain iron (which can prevent hair loss) and L-cysteine, which is the main amino acid in keratin. We’re using the Hair & Nail NutriComplex.

Eyelash serums may promise strengthened lashes, but we also love a dab of lip balm before bed. Yes, you heard us right: lip balm. Said to moisturise and condition lashes, apply to you’re the tips (not the roots!) before turning in for the night.

For instant length, try a fiber mascara. Designed to only need a few clump-free coats, a fiber mascara will swipe on seamlessly and hug at every lash. We love The One’s Instant Extensions Mascara.
