If you want to lift your eye area but also wouldn’t mind ditching the botox, try enhancing your eyelashes instead. Here’s what you need to know…
GO FOR NATURAL EXTENSIONS.Lash bars are popping up all over, but we trialled Daxita in Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, who specialises in analysing the clients face and eye shape first, and Gené Tevari at Paul Edmonds, who prefers the natural look. The treatment is completely bespoke and may only consist of a tint, but the results are transformative, making tired eyes look wide open and awake.
PREP WITH FIBRE.Fibre mascaras latch on to the end of your natural lash for a lengthening effect, but also create little lashes of their own from the base, resulting in a fuller-looking set. The trick is making sure the brush is wiggled into the roots and the swipes are fast and firm so you create the ‘lash’ before the formula dries. A slower application will mean unnatural-looking clumpy, spiky lashes that could crumble and flake. Try out Two Faced Better Than False Lashes Extreme!.
CHOOSE YOUR DREAM MASCARA. Clinique High Impact Mascara leaves lashes lengthened, lightweight, defined, and evenly coated without clumps. Plus, the glossy formula won’t leave that crispy feel or flakiness.
USE SERUM FOR A LASH GROWTH BOOST.If you want lengthier lashes without extensions, Dior Show Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum is packed with conditioning peptides and fatty acids to stimulate and promote growth. It’s pretty simple to apply – swipe a layer on as a primer before applying mascara, or use at night to let the soy proteins work their magic.
