Long sweeping lashes open up your eyes, take off years and add drama, here’s our guide on how to get fuller lashes.
Get thicker lashes
You’ll be amazed at the results from the night-time treatment RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum, R650 from selected beauty salons (it works on brows too). Also try LUCALash, R595, an eyelash conditioner that promises a 25% increase in eyelash length after just two weeks.
Fake it to make it
For one of the sexiest beauty tricks around, try a set of lash extensions. Avoid a full set if you’re over 40; individual ones look like your own, only more gorgeous. Extensions give eyes instant allure and should last about four weeks. From R650 at EyeCandy (021 465 5999). Want to try it yourself? Then pop a cluster of four or five Jane Iredale Professional Faux Lashes, R270, to the centre of the top lash to really open up the eyes.
Plump up the volume
DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum, R295, combs, curls and coats in one. Get it right into the roots of your lashes to make them look twice as thick, then apply mascara over the top. Or try the two-in-one L’Oréal Paris Lash Renewal Serum And Mascara, R169,95, for an oomph of thickness.
Get the look secrets
- For thicker lashes, wriggle mascara right into the roots for a few seconds.
- For extra length, curl lashes before applying mascara.
- For healthier lashes, condition at night with Vaseline.
