Who doesn’t love thicker, fuller lashes? There are many ways to achieve them—you can either use a volumising mascara, get lash extensions, lash lifts or even wear falsies. But let’s be honest, extensions and falsies can get quite expensive and time consuming! That leaves us with mascara—the easiest, cheapest and the most feasible way of achieving voluminous, fluttery lashes.
If you wish to know all the different ways and hacks to volumise your lashes, scroll down…
Use a primer
Just like your makeup stays bulletproof and looks flawless if you prime your face prior to putting it on, your mascara too applies smoothly when your lashes are coated with a lash primer. The primer makes your mascara much more efficient—it thickens, lengthens and volumises the lashes.
Instead of layering two coats of the same mascara, we suggest layering two different mascaras (a curling and a volumising one) for better volume. Start with coating your primed lashes with Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara for an envious, lengthy curl. Then, top it off with Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volumizing Mascara.
Coat top and bottom
We usually coat the lashes only from the bottom. But, to achieve that extra volume, coat them from the top too. While coating ‘em from the bottom, wiggle your mascara wand to achieve the best results!
Use a lash comb
Using a lash comb, comb the lashes from the roots in an upward and outward direction to ensure maximum volume. Do this when you’re done applying mascara—it’ll separate the lashes while adding volume.
Corners and lower lash line
Don’t forget to apply mascara on the inner and outer corners of your lashes as well as your lower lash line. Covering the entire lash will give you more volume and definition. Choose a mascara with a ball-tip wand, or hold the mascara wand vertically for seamless application.
