Eyelash Beauty Hacks *

Greetings Readers!

Welcome back to fashioneyesta.com.

Today I am going to be doing a little blog to accompany a recent video I did for my YouTube channel on some eyelash beauty hacks. Now these are some tricks and tips I use to make the most out of my lashes and mascara without the need for false lashes. For me, as someone with Nystagmus and severe sight loss mascara and lashes can be a precarious business. So, I thought that this would help some of you.

So, without further adieu let the hacking begin!

Hack One: When curling your eyelashes, take your hairdryer and blast some warm air on the curlers for about 10-20 seconds. Heating your eyelash curlers before curling will help your lashes stay curlier for longer. Just don’t let the metal get too hot and be sure to pump the curlers to get the most volume.

Hack Two: To get more volume and thickness from your lashes I use the Instant Effect Instant Lash treatment which is a pre mascara treatment or a treatment you sue at night. Its a clear gel, I apply it all over the top and bottom lashes from roots to tips, then I leave it for 5 minutes, wipe away any excess with a tissue and then move onto mascara.

This product can be found on the 4 You By You website by clicking here.

If you want to get discount on any products on the 4 You By You website you can by quoting the discount code ‘fashioneyesta.’

If you haven’t got this you could use a clear mascara or a eyelash primer.

Hack Three: If your mascara is becoming clumpy, simply wipe the bristles of the wand on some tissue to remove any clumps or dried lumps of mascara.

Hack Four: If your mascara is becoming old and dry, put it in a cup of hot water for 2-3 minutes before taking it out and applying your mascara as normal. This turns it into a liquid and helps you get more wear out of your mascara. Just don’t do this if your mascara is new, because this will dry it out quicker in the long run.

Hack Five: If you have difficulties applying mascara or smudge it on your eyelid when applying it get a spoon and place it on the top lid whilst you apply your mascara. This will act as a guard against smudging and its so good if you have Nystagmus like myself (a condition where your eyes move involuntarily.) Try it and see!

Hack Six: If you have problems applying mascara to the lower lash line without smudging it underneath giving you the appearance of Panda eyes you can prevent this by using an eyeliner guard. I got mine from Amazon, simply place it underneath your eyelashes and apply your mascara as normal.

Hack Seven: Once your mascara has dried, take an eyebrow brush or even a toothbrush and gently brush through your lashes to separate them and stop them from going clumpy. Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 20.38.04 Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 20.38.22

Hack Eight: If you make any mistakes take a highlighting concealer of your choice and apply it to the area you have made a mistake and blend with your finger or a small beauty blender (I get mine from Claire’s Accessories.) You can also clean up any mistakes by using a cotton bud.

So. that concludes it for my eyelash beauty hacks, I hope you found this useful.

Do let me know if you have any hacks of your own that you swear by, thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you all again soon.
