Making Monday Pretty: Fuller Lashes June 23 2014

They say eyes are the windows to the soul, and who doesn't want to frame them with full, fluttery lashes? Below are our top tips and trips to amp up both the volume and length.

1. Use some sort of eyelash primer. If you don't feel like buying one specifically for this purpose, we love a light dusting of baby powder or face powder over the lashes to bulk them up before applying mascara.

2. Curl your lashes. Always. This helps open up the your eyes and fan your lashes out and will also make them look longer.

3. Combine mascaras. Most women stick to using one mascara every morning, but we think it's pretty tough to find one mascara that does everything and does it all well. We prefer to mix and match, layering our favourite lengthening mascara with our favourite thickening one to get the best of both worlds. Don't be afraid to combine and conquer!

4. Don't forget to comb. Applying multiple layers of mascara can sometimes lead to a few clumps, and as much as we want volume, we also want to maintain that soft flutter. Using a mascara comb or a pair or tweezers (carefully!) separate any clumps that may have popped up.

Have a beautiful Monday everyone!
