Artificial Thick and Long Eyelashes

If you have thin lashes, or even suffering with the problem of thinning eyelashes, which is caused due to aging or certain irreversible medical conditions, then you may need to rely on certain artificial products, which you can use, to accentuate your original eyelashes and give them the desired appearance.


eyelinerYou must be using the eyeliner on a daily basis. In order to make your eyelashes look longer and thicker, you need to use a darker eyeliner. In other words, use an eyeliner with a darker color shade than the color of your eyelashes. It will create an illusion of thick eyelashes at the roots. Now, in order to make them look long, apply the eyeliner in a lengthening manner. Drag a thin but curved line of the eyeliner which should end at the outside part of the outermost corners of your eye. Once you are done with one eye, repeat the process with the other eye. While doing so, make sure that the curves of the extended eyeliner line are similar and proportionate to one another. Using this trick will definitely create an appearance of thick and long eyelashes.


MascaraAnother regular feature in your eye makeup kit is mascara. When the mascara is used in a proper manner, it makes your eyelashes look long as well as thick. Use a good quality, waterproof mascara in dark color shades. To apply mascara in the right manner, hold its brush in the horizontal manner and begin the application from the roots of the eyelashes. Then, squirm the brush vertically (root to tip direction). Add three to four coats of mascara and increase the number if you want more thickness. Avoid constant dipping the brush in the bottle because it causes clumpy appearance. Dip it only when you are done with one eye. Applying mascara is always a great way to create an illusion of thick eyelashes, and when its applied it in this manner, it definitely enhances your look.

Eyelash Curler

eyelash curlerAs we know, long and upturned lashes look extremely chic. Flat eyelashes on the other hand, look short even when they are relatively long. Solution? Use an eyelash curler! Eyelash curlers are a type of clamps that are used for curling your lashes. In order to curl them properly, place the eyelash curler as close to the roots as possible and tighten the clasps. Then, release the clasps and gently move the curler in the upward direction, towards the tips of your lashes. The curler gives that thicker and voluminous look to your eyelashes. However, you may need to use the curler pretty carefully. Make sure that you are not holding it too tightly while moving it, because it may hurt your eye and also cause the eyelashes to fall out.

Fake Lashes

false eyelashesNow, this is the popular weapon of most of the celebrities who don't have those long and thick eyelashes. The only difference is that they are applied by professionals, and in your case, you will be applying them on your own. This fact may take you a bit longer time to learn how to apply fake eyelashes like the professionals. Once you become well skilled, you can definitely try this option on a regular basis. Having said that, make sure that you are keeping your eyes safe from the glue and chemicals that these false eyelashes come with. Take proper care of your eyes and keep them well moisturized from time to time. Such lashes however, are more suitable for dramatic makeup and not for day-to-day usage. So, keep that in mind while shopping for them.

Another extreme option to get long eyelashes would be of the surgical implantation of artificial eyelashes. This step needs proper guidance of the health care provider and your eye care specialist.
