Most of you will agree with me that there is nothing more seductive than a woman
fluttering her thick long eyelashes across the room; it can make a man's heart skip
a beat and maneuver things in her favor. However, not every woman is blessed with
naturally beautiful long eyelashes.
For the rest of us who are green with envy (probably cursing and swearing at our
sparse possession), is it still possible to achieve that "ultimate big lash look"?
Yes, through clever eye makeup tricks, that is. Although there are eyelash extensions
to make your eyelashes look as if they stretch a mile, they are often expensive and
a hassle to apply.
Hence, mascaras or false eyelashes remain the favorite choice for most women who
want bigger brighter eyes.
When it comes to mascaras, the secret to longer thicker eyelashes lies entirely in

Not only it will apply a thicker layer of mascara, at the same time, it also declumps
and defines your eyelashes.
Alternatively, a mascara brush which has a brush and comb combo is also great for
this purpose. You can also purchase a lengthening mascara with cellulose or synthetic

eyelashes. Let your eyelashes dry and then apply another layer of mascara to really
False eyelashes are another good option if you desire a pair of glamorous, sexy eyes
for a night out. When purchasing false eyelashes, choose eyelashes that come in a
strip rather than buying individual eyelashes. Unless you are very skilful with false
eyelashes, individual eyelashes might be too difficult to use while trying to achieve
a natural look.
How to Apply False Eyelashes
To apply false eyelashes, first trim them to fit the length of your eyelid. Using
a Q-tip, dab a small amount of eyelash adhesive or glue onto the back of the false
Wait for a few seconds or until the glue starts to get a tacky feel and then apply
the false eyelashes to your upper eyelid by pressing it into your eyelash line gently.
To make the false eyelashes appear more natural, blend it with your other makeup;
for instance, apply a line of eyeliner over the base of the false eyelashes once
they have been placed on your eye.
Now, flutter those sexy thick long eyelashes......
