The ultimate guide for longer and thicker eyelashes All the tips to strengthen and help the growth of our eyelashes

Who would not like to have long, healthy and thick lashes naturally? But strengthening the lashes is not always so simple, especially for those born with light lashes or for those who have weakened them with the excessive use of aggressive cosmetics, leaving them sparse and empty. In addition, the trend of recent years wants a false eyelash effect, Twiggy style, and therefore full, thick and exaggerated. Applying multiple layers of mascara isn't a secret, but what if that's not really enough? In addition to different types of treatments, there are also products and tricks that can significantly improve the natural condition of the eyelashes.

First, make sure you use a gentle makeup remover and easy-to-rinse mascara (possibly not waterproof) as it can dry out your lashes, making them brittle. It is also very important to change mascara every 3 months after opening: this is because the bacteria that enter the product risk contaminating it, causing pain and burning in the eyes. Depending on the formula, however, mascara can dry out before the expiration date: in this case, it is better to throw it away even though the 3 months have not yet passed. In addition, every time you put on your make-up and remove make-up, finish it all off with a drop of extra virgin olive oil on your eyelashes: a minimum amount is enough to obtain a shiny effect and nourish them at the same time.

Moving on to products that promise to make lashes healthier, stronger and longer: eyelash serums and primers are considered as a real ad hoc cosmetic treatment: it is essential to follow the instructions and be constant to obtain visible results. They are applied every day, usually in the evening before going to sleep, and help to obtain longer and more robust lashes. Finally, the correct application of mascara can help to obtain a fast and effective result: keeping the chin down, you start applying on the upper lashes, first horizontally and then vertically by raising the browbone with the index finger of the free hand. It should be applied with quick movements from the bottom up, taking extreme care to take the lashes from the root, pausing on the base with zigzag movements to give more volume. It is very important to maintain the natural direction of the eyelashes as much as possible and not allow them to dry between coats to avoid lumps. For a cat eye effect you can intensify the outermost part. If, on the other hand, you want to apply it also on the lower part, remember to look upwards; make sure that the mascara on top is completely dry before proceeding, to avoid staining the eyelid, and then proceed slowly with the tip of the brush, with light movements from the inside out. Finally, remove excess mascara with a cotton swab.

A very good habit is also to use an eyelash primer before applying mascara to create thickness, volume and avoid the formation of lumps. Depending on the formulation, the primer can also moisturize, strengthen and promote healthy lash growth.
Instead, avoid false eyelashes, since, even if they can give a momentarily incredible effect, in the long term they risk detaching the natural ones. Also avoid using the eyelash curler too much, as curling them too much can sometimes interfere with their growth.
