As we get older, hair sprouts where it shouldn’t be, and drops off where it should stay. We have hairs on our chins but not on our eyelids!
You may have noticed your eyelashes were looking a bit on the thin side, but you are not alone. There are a number of ways you can thicken those lashes to give the illusion of a much fuller eyelid, which will compliment a daytime or night time look.
According to Starts at 60 beauty expert, Margaret Woodberry, a lovely and convenient beauty trick is to have eyelash extensions applied. It is not an overly expensive procedure and the lash extensions will last about six weeks or more with care.
She suggests avoiding wetting the extensions for the first 24 hours and try to sleep with your face away from the pillow.
Then, gently brush and position the lashes each morning. As you gradually lose lashes, just call in to your beauty salon and have some new extensions attached to fill the gaps.
When washing your face, use a cotton bud to clean and dry around your eyes.
There are a few easy tricks to use to give the illusion of thicker eyelashes.
Optional: Add more powder to the lashes and go over once more with your mascara.
Apply olive oil to your lashes – it strengthens hair and stimulates growth! Apply to a cotton ball and dab on your eyelashes. Leave it on for five minutes, then rinse off. Repeat for a couple of weeks and you’ll see a noticeable difference.
If you’re going out for the night and want to look glam, your eyelashes can really make your makeup pop. If your eyelashes are quite sparse, false eyelashes will give you a whole new set.
If your eyelashes have gone grey or are naturally light, you can tint them either at the salon or home. This will make your lashes look fuller especially if they are light and not visible.
Forget about thickening mascara if you have super thin lashes, there’s a new type of mascara out on the market. A lot of brand sell a fibre mascara which doe the job of lengthening and thickening without having to get extensions or applying multiple coats.
