Voluminous Eyelashes




What's the one product that I would take on a desert island? Mascara.
Why? Because a few quick swipes give longer, darker, fuller lashes that make your eyes pop. And here are a few things I do to make my lashes look pretty damn voluminous.
Check out these top tips...

The Primer ~ An eyelash primer is a quick-drying formula that not only creates a smooth base for your mascara, but also instantly thickens, primes and lengthens the lashes. A good primer can double the volume of your lashes, and stops mascara from smudging or flaking throughout the day. Bonus!
The Best of the Best Eyelash Primers are:
Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum
Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base
Clinique Lash Building Primer
Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Nylon Lash Extension system


The Curler ~ A great eyelash curler fans the eyelashes upwards and outwards. I love the fact that it gives your lashes a boost before applying mascara. Make-up artists usually warm up their eyelash curlers with a hair dryer for around 10-15 minutes before curling the lashes, pressing them at the bottom, then in the middle and finally at the ends.
My favourite eyelash curlers are:
Shiseido Eyelash Curler
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Tweezerman Procurl Eyelash Curler

The Cocktail ~ Lots of girls like sticking to one mascara, but I've found mixing two mascaras together really makes the lashes so much more voluminous. Firstly, I apply a lengthening mascara as a base, then lashings of a thickening mascara on top. The best part is that you get to experiment and try out different brands to see what works best.
I absolutely love these volumizing mascaras:
Benefit Bad Gal Lash
Dior Diorshow Mascara
Benefit They're Real! Mascara
Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Mascara
Lancome Hypnose Volume Mascara
L'Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara
Clinique High Impact Mascara

The Comb ~ Big full lashes means lots of mascara, which can get clumpy and a bit of a mess. So a little eyelash comb can get rid of the excess mascara.
My faves are:
Make Up For Ever 276 Eyelash Comb & Brush
Bare Escentuals Eyelash Comb
