eyelash comb

Beauty Tips
  1. Do not use concealer as a eyeshadow primer- it will crease very easily
  2. When applying false lashes position the mirror/yourself so you are looking down with your eyes, that way your full eyelid is exposed and makes it easier to place the lashes.
  3. To reduce puffy eyes, put eye/face lotion into the refrigerator and apply it to your lids before you put on your eye makeup.
  4. It is okay to curl your lashes with an eyelash curler after you apply mascara. Just wait until your lashes are dry and then use the eyelash curler gently. I also recommend using an eyelash comb to get rid of clumps.
  5. Put blush on before you put on foundation! That way it looks like it is underneath the skin for a more natural realistic look

Some Beauty Issues, Resolved

Deodorant Stain on Shirt? Rub your tights on it and it goes away. Honest. Scout’s Honor. Not the Boy Scouts. THE GIRL SCOUTS.

Dry, Flaky Skin At Work and no lotion? Scotch Tape works pretty well to get off the flakes, before you can get some access to face lotion.

Stubborn Eye Makeup? Tell it to compromise a bit. Then destroy it with Olive Oil.

Messed up eye makeup 5 minutes before you’re officially 20 minutes late to the bar? Dip a Q-Tip in makeup remover and spot clean. Tell your friends the subway was late, you lying minx.

What should I put in my daily travel makeup bag? Perfume Rollerball, whatever lip product you’re wearing, pencil eyeliner, tiny travel face lotion, concealer, small mirror. If your bag is small, just breathmints, a knife, and lipstick will suffice.

pros & cons of eyelash extensions

pros:

  • look pretty all the time, even w/o makeup
  • wake up feeling fabulous
  • can look very ‘done up’ with little effort
  • low maintenance - just give your eyelashes a comb once a day

cons:

  • refills every 2-4 weeks
  • harder to put on eye makeup
  • have to be more careful when removing makeup and when applying skincare products as oil deteriorates the glue
  • if you wear glasses and have them high up, you have to wear them further down as eyelash extensions interfere
  • can be irritating

Hello my little angels! I hope you all are doing alright. 

This is Valeria and welcome LEARNTOMAKEUP! ♥

This time I will be talking about lashes. Don’t we love lashes? We do! No eye makeup is complete without a touch up in your eyelashes. Long eyelashes can take any look from 100 to 1000 in one second and make an attractive look. 

That is why a lot of beauty lovers dream to have longer lashes.

But unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with long and thick eyelashes. We can make our eyelashes longer by makeup or by applying fake lashes. If you have naturally long eyelashes, you don’t have to spend a lot of mascara to make it look longer. 

But if you don’t, then you may need to work on making it look longer. So why don’t you start growing your eyelashes naturally? You can make your eyelashes grow longer and stronger than ever before.

» Today you will learn 9 ways to get longer, thicker, fuller, healthier and stronger eyelashes ❀ «  

1. TAKE CARE OF YOUR LASHES

To get a perfect amount of eyelashes, you must take care of your eye to make it work. If you try everything and don’t keep your eyes clean, then you will not get the benefit. Take off your makeup and clean your eyes every time before you go to bed.

When washing your makeup off, be sure not to pull at your eyelashes. I like mascara that comes off really easily to prevent tugging and pulling at lashes. Pulling stunts growth and undoes all the hard work you’ve put into making those lashes grow again! 

2. BRUSH YOUR LASHES

It sounds a little weird but there actually is a type of small comb which can help you to brush your eyelashes. Just by brushing your eyelashes, you can actually make them grow a little longer.  Also this is truly one of my favorite tips on how to make your eyelashes grow that is easy to do. 

So comb your eyelashes regularly and see the result.

3. VASELINE IS THE NEW HEAVEN

Instead of spending your money on something that could darken your eyes, why not try something easy and quick?

It is an old-age trick but it really works! And it is the simplest one! You just have to use a cotton stick or mascara brush and apply a swipe of Vaseline on your eyelid before you go to bed. It will make your lashes longer and thicker. You have to wait for the results but it will make a noticeable change.

4. NATURAL OILS

Olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil and castor oil are mostly common for making your lash longer. Applying them regularly on your lashes can simply make it work. To see the best result, do it regularly. Natural oil contains vitamins, minerals and lengthening agents which will not only enlarge your lashes but also moisturize them.

If you want to start doing it but you are kind of worried of what will happen you should start by trying out olive oil. Just adding a bit of olive oil to your lids at night will truly help your eyelashes soak up all of the vitamins and minerals in olive oil! 

5. GREEN TEA

Here’s another great reason to stock your pantry with green tea. Only in this case, you won’t drink it. Instead, you are going to put it straight on your eyelashes. It might sound weird, but I promise that it works! Simply dip a cotton ball in freshly steeped green tea and gently swipe it on your lashes. It can help promote growth. Just make sure you steep a fresh cup for drinking!

6. MASSAGE YOUR EYELIDS

Most common problems you may have faced with eyelashes are that they can fall out and even break if you mistreat them. You can rub your eyelids to help it out. This means that by massaging the eyelids you will be stimulating the hair follicles which help to grow stronger eyelashes.

7. EAT YOUR VEGGIES AND PROTEINS

Your natural growth of hair depends on the diet you are following. If you have a bad diet then you will notice that your body will not support to the growths properly. Your eyelashes will not increase enough too. Try to intake fruits and veggies to make a remarkable difference. 

Include lean proteins in your diet such as fish, cheese, eggs, beans, yoghurt, milk, almonds, fruits etc. Drink plenty of water to get rid of toxins. This will ensure you have longer and thicker lashes.

8. VITAMIN E 

Sometimes people change their eating habits and start a healthier lifestyle, however, they want faster results without damaging their bodies. If you think you need a faster result, try Vitamin E supplements. Make a routine of taking one on a daily basis. Vitamin E lotion also helps to increase your lashes to its maximum growth. 

9. LASH ACCELERATOR

Did you know that there are actually lash accelerator mascaras out there? While you might spend a little more on mascara, in the end, you’ll save because your lashes will grow longer and thicker. Try it and tell me how you love it! This tip on how to make your eyelashes grow is as simple as applying a coat of mascara. 

10. LASHES SERUM

Yes, there is such a thing and it works wonders on your eyelashes. According to the experts, no matter how brittle, short, fragile, thin, or sparse your lashes are eyelash serum will strength follicles, which promotes growth. Serum moisturizes and conditions to prevent breakage and boosts volume and length.

PROM

On the night of senior prom, we will
splash cold water onto our faces like
alarm clocks and smear liquefied
Photoshop over our noses. We will
dust our pores with powder perfection,
brush a chalky pink flirt on the apples
of our cheeks, comb eyelashes stiff
with charcoal warnings, clamping with
metal until they are an obedient fringe.
Nash will execute some kind of voodoo
magic on my hair and repeatedly tell me
to stop wiggling. Brenna will run around
with safety pins and a tiny sewing kit.
Alexa will show up late as hell and
strikingly resemble Christina Aguilera.
Inevitably, Haley will yell at her mother
while her mother solicits everyone to try
her cream-cheese infused strawberries.
I will pose on the stone patio with posture
that has taken me four years to accumulate.
I will wear a dress that my mom thinks says
too much about me but I will wear it anyways
because I know dresses cannot speak. A boy
will rest his hands on my hips and I will smile
and he will smile and his parents will take our
picture because my parents will probably not
be there. I will get in a minivan with the only
people who have seen my hearts blooper reel,
the deleted scenes, the forgotten lines, and
stayed. At dinner, we will press our napkins
into our laps and laugh and laugh and laugh
because we are in high school
and everything
is so funny.
