BEAUTY | The Perfect Lash Edit

10 March 2016

Longer, thicker, blacker, and more beautiful lashes. That's what every girl wants, am I right?

You wouldn't think it, but achieving the perfect lashes can actually be pretty darn difficult - but don't fret, I'm here to help you out and show you how to perfect your lashes! 

Personally, my lashes are the most important part of my daily makeup routine. I really don't think I could leave the house without having done something to make them 'pop'.

I consider myself quite lucky, my lashes are naturally quite long and relatively thick, and I've never really felt the need to wear falsies as unless they're super dramatic, they don't seem to make much of a difference for me! However, if you have much shorter or thinner lashes and really want that extra 'vavoom', then go ahead and apply a pair of your favourite falsies.

So now, onto the good stuff. I always start by curling my lashes. I used to think curling was completely useless and never understood why so many people did this step - until I picked up an eyelash curler for myself.

I love this Revlon Eyelash Curler that I picked up from my local Priceline for only $12.99! It does the job well, doesn't pull at my lashes and comes with a second cushion curl pad for when the first gets a little worse for wear.

Now for the mascara. I am absolutely obsessed with mascara, I have so many different ones and I just keep picking up more. But, despite trying likely more than half of the mascaras on the market (possibly an exaggeration!) I have always come back to the following two.

Benefit's They're Real: I'll start off with a newer purchase of mine, the They're Real mascara is quite pricey at $40, however if you want to splurge (or better yet, can grab it either on sale or as part of a gift set - or both as I did, you can see my unboxing video of the 'You're So Party Gift Set' here), I think it's definitely a really lovely product. This mascara is great for separating and lengthening your lashes, and is also extremely black (which is an important area that I find some mascara's to be lacking in). Also, it's next to impossible to get this stuff off - it simply doesn't budge, so if you're looking for a good quality, long-lasting mascara then this may just be for you!

Maybelline's Lash Sensational: This is the best drugstore mascara I've ever used, and actually my holy grail mascara (yes, even over my Benefit They're Real Mascara). It does an amazing job at thickening, volumising and lengthening my lashes in just one coat, however I often like to add a second coat to really enhance the effect of my lashes. The only possible downside to this mascara is that often throughout the day I'll need to touch up my foundation under my eyes as it will leave a slight black smudge in the area, which can be annoying but is nothing major and nothing I can't fix in a matter of seconds, so no biggie!

I hope you found this post helpful and interesting - I'd love to know what some of your favourite products are to get the perfect lashes, or if you also use some of the three essentials I swear by! Leave a comment letting me know!

Have a lovely week!
