How to Add Drama to Your Eyelashes

Flirty Fun Lashes
If the eyes are the windows to our souls, then our eyelashes are the luxurious curtains. That being said, there are a number of ways to adorn them.

For a wide-eyed effect, a fanned-out lash begins with a curling of the lashes. Once clean lashes have been curled to perfection, opt for a formula that provides maximum definition, lengthening, and lash separation. In general, the brush on the perfect wide-eyed mascara will be curved, with small to medium bristles that reach every single hair. Concentrate your brush strokes on the outer portion of the lash for an extra elongated appearance.

Always a fall staple, the smoky eye is best when paired with a rich, full lash. Opt for formulas that are on the thicker side, but fairly wet, so as to be completely buildable. Apply the first coat, and allow time for it to dry before applying the second and third coats. Look for a product that has volumizing in the description, and you should be set. Also noteworthy: the brushes on these formulations tend to be fatter and larger, to maximize the impact of each brush stroke.

This past summer saw a huge resurgence of color, and with it, the rise of the colored mascara. Perfect for creating added length and definition, the colored mascara also provides everything from subtle hints to full blasts of eye-catching color. For best results, go with a shade that compliments your own eye color: purple for green eyes or blue for brown eyes.

When in doubt, false it out! Find the pair of false lashes best suited for the look that you are going for. For fun and flirty, opt for a pair of lashes that are lengthy and fanned out. For a cat eye effect, a half-length fanned lash will not only be super easy to apply, but will also wear comfortably throughout the evening.

When it comes to eyelashes, the rule is the bolder the better.

I like the idea of a deep blue mascara. I'm still on the fence about fake ones although I do like how they look. This comment has been removed.

Dramatic eyelashes are my absolute favorite part of doing my makeup. Nohting makes the face pop more than long, lush lashes. Deep blue mascara is great for creating a bold look too. This comment has been removed.

Does anyone know the best way to apply them? I'm scared to do it myself bc I don't wanna mess up my eyeshadow and get glue over everything. This comment has been removed.

I think $15 is ok if they're good quality.

I'm lusting over the HBIC lashes from Urban Decay. Is $15 too much to pay for lashes? This comment has been removed.
