The best way to use mascara is to start from the base of the lashes, wiggling it in left to right. The get the full effect, start applying from the outer corner and then move towards the middle. This way your lashes would not look messy.
Two Coats of Mascara For a Seductive Look
To create a seductive look, apply waterproof mascara on your bottom lashes and your ordinary mascara on the upper lashes. This way you’ll make your eyes look bigger and sexier.
Use eyeliner to accentuate your eyelashes
Use an eyeliner color that’s a little darker than your natural eyelash color. The idea is to make it look like there is more hair at the roots of your eyelashes than there actually are. This will create an illusion of thicker eyelashes.
In general, mascara will make your eyelashes look thicker and longer, as long as you use high quality mascara that doesn’t clump.
Curl your lashes
Flat eyelashes look short, even if they’re not, simply because of the angle at which they’re seen. An eyelash curler will give your eyelashes some extra bounce, but do it carefully and gently. The last thing you want to do is tug your lashes at the roots and cause them to fall out prematurely.
Apply fake lashes
If you look closely at pictures of celebrities, you’ll notice that many of them wear fake eyelashes. Admittedly, there’s a steep learning curve in applying false eyelashes so that they look natural and stay put. Once you get the hang of it, however, your lashes will look dramatically longer.
Get eyelash extensions
If you can afford them, professionally applied eyelash extensions are a beautiful, natural-looking way to enhance your lashes. The process usually takes a couple hours, but the extensions will last for months with only occasional touch-ups.
Clean your eyelashes
Growing eyelashes starts with hygiene. You want to remove grease, dust, or makeup that clogs your eye-lash follicles. Makeup, more than anything else, tends to cause eyelash loss and reduce your eyelid’s ability to regrow lashes.
Avoid excessive eye rubbing
Especially during allergy season, be sure not to rub your eye lids. Use Visine or another allergy medicine to ease irritation and redness. Periodic rubbing can loosen your lashes and cause them to fall out at a higher rate. In addition, this will add more dust, dirt, and other follicle clogging matter to your eye lids necessitating additional cleaning.
Apply oils to your lashes
Apply a thin coat of olive oil, caster oil, coconut oil, or vaseline to your lashes before you go to bed at night. Oils and commercial products will measurably increase the volume, length, and curvature of your lashes with regular use.
Try using green tea on your eyelashes
If you decide that oils are not your cup of tea, then why not try putting green tea on your lashes before bed. Take a cotton swab, dip it in some green tea, and then cover your lashes with it. In the morning, wash thoroughly. Do this for 2 weeks, every night, for noticeable results.
Use petroleum jelly to grow longer lashes
Vaseline Jelly has been a mainstay of the home beauty toolbox for decades. Apply the petroleum jelly just before bed and wash it off in the morning. If you aren’t a fan of the petroleum variety, Vaseline also makes a non-petroleum jelly mix .
