Good morning Beauties! Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite tips for keeping your lashes healthy. Day after day we are following countless beauty trends to achieve the look we desire, but by far the most prominent trend in 2017 was eyelash extensions. We’re all a little guilty of wanting those sky-high lashes and this semi-permanent option allows you to roll out of bed looking like you just applied 3 coats of mascara without all the fuss. As per my November post “ALL GLAMMED UP” , I was drawn in by the trend and had the most talented lash artist create the most glamorous set of Mega Lashes for me.
Although I loved everything about my fabulous lashes, it became difficult not being able to rub my eyes, or use my favorite skin care products. For me, It was time for a break from extensions, time to let my lashes breath, grow and get strong. Saying bye-bye to those lavish lashes can be difficult, but give them a vacation and they will be ready next time you need to get “ALL GLAMMED UP!” Wether you have had extensions or not, everybody deserves perfect lashes, so try out my tips below for keeping them healthy with my all natural DIY serum. You can thank me later, because in no time at all you’ll be batting your lashes at anyone that looks your way.
HOW TO Grow your Eyelashes and Eyebrows naturally!
One of the biggest skin care products right now would be facial serum. You can find a serum for every skin type and almost every skin care need, so why not start using a serum on our lashes? It goes without saying that Latisse is probably the most popular lash serum out there – it’s claims your lashes will be longer, thicker, and darker in less than 2 months. But does that come with a risk? Why take a chance, when you can create a more natural, chemical free product right at home. Not only will this DIY lash serum be more affordable but it can be used daily without any harmful side affects. So join me on a journey to ‘Lashes to Die For.”
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- Castor oil
- Coconut oil
- Avocado oil (optional)
- Small travel bottle for storage
- Package of disposable mascara wands
- Fill the first half of the travel bottle with castor oil.
- Fill the second half of the bottle with coconut oil.
- Add just a bit of avocado oil to the top.
- Close the lid tightly and gently shake.
- Apply the serum to your eyebrows and eyelashes (both bottom and top ones) each night before bed, as if it were regular mascara.
- Use your fingertip to gently rub any excess oil across the lash line.
- Store at room temperature in a dry dark place.
Of course mascara is a given, when trying to achieve luscious sexy lashes without the extensions. But some products are better than others when it comes to nursing your lashes back to life. You want to use a product that’s going to thicken, lengthen, lift, and create mega volume. A lash primer is a good place to start. Then use a mascara like my favorite Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara , which is full of collagen and will make your lashes resilient and strong. For best results be sure to remove all your makeup with my “go to” all natural makeup remover before applying your lash serum each night.
