Why healthy eyelashes make a difference

Why healthy eyelashes make a difference

Want to transform your look, naturally without a lot of change to your existing beauty routine? How about turning to those wispy and flirty lashes that rim the windows to your soul? That’s right, your eyelashes.

You’re obviously aware of the big, synthetic eyelash trend, and that’s still going strong with a bit of modification to make them more natural-looking. The good news here is that you can also amp your own natural eyelashes to make them exceptional and breathtaking. Here are some important tips on why healthy eyelashes can make all the difference in the world when it comes to your new look and how Hair La Vie's Lash24 can play a role.

Are lash extensions for you?

Lash extensions instantly give you lovely lashes, but there are some downsides along with the plusses. Let’s take a look at both, and you can decide if this no-muss approach is for you.

Benefits of lash extensions

♦ Long-lasting, with options lasting a week or more
♦ Full and beautiful lashes that look like you were born with them (or not, if that’s what you prefer)
♦ No need to use mascara
♦ Create a customized look

The cons of eyelash extensions

♦ They can be expensive to apply and maintain
♦ Regular maintenance every week to two weeks is required
♦ The lashes and/or the glue can be irritating to sensitive skin
♦ Oil-based products shouldn't be used around the eyes
♦ Extensions can break your real eyelashes
♦ You need to be careful around your eyes and lashes

Are you ready for amazing real lashes?

If you’ve decided that extensions just aren’t for you, you can still have fantastic looking lashes with the right care. These tips will help you make your natural eyelashes noteworthy.

It’s in the serum

You've probably seen a lot of hype around lash serum. Lash serums are basically a blend of ingredients designed to support healthy hair growth. Hair La Vie stepped it up a bit by combining the best naturally-derived ingredients specifically designed to give you visibly longer, denser, and more youthful-looking eyelashes. 

Lash24 is one applicator that gives you 24 hour, around the clock lash support while only having to apply it once in the morning and once in the evening. You can wear it under mascara as a bonus if you'd like, as it's lightweight and colorless. 

Curl them

Curling your eyelashes before you apply mascara or even instead of mascara can make them look fuller. Try using a regular full clamp curler, a half clamp, and a heated lash curler to see which one works best for you. You might like using a combination of lash curlers.

More than one mascara

Layering different colors of mascara can help add depth and create an illusion of fullness. Use a darker color near your lids and a lighter hue on the tips. Using a lighter color on the lower lids will also help your eyes look wider.

From the roots out

To have the most impact, apply your mascara from the roots outward, with more mascara centered on the roots. Some people just don’t like applying mascara that close to their eyes.

Honestly, it takes some practice and skill, but you’ll love the results when you finally master it.

Be gentle

Your upper eyelid has about 90-160 lashes, and the lower one is typically in the 75-80 range. Of course, this can vary by person, but no matter how many you have, it’s relatively few in comparison to how many hairs you have on your body. 

Treating your eyelashes gently is key to keeping them in good health and shape. Make sure you clean your eyes with a cleanser and use gentle motions to remove mascara and other makeup. Try to wean off waterproof mascara because it’s heavy and harsh on lashes and requires a lot of effort to remove.

More eyelash trends

Celebrity Lilly Ghalichi’s Lilly Lashes are a must when it comes to eyelash extensions. Follow her company’s Instagram page to get some inspiration for both fake and real lashes.

If you’re looking for a natural look you can replicate, the no-makeup look of Salma Hayek is definitely one to emulate. This gorgeous celebrity has naturally dark hair, which helps make her lashes stand out, but you can copy that with a light coat of brown mascara and just a touch of eyeliner.

If you want to take the eyelash look to incredibly new lengths, then you simply must add a little more. Starting with colored mascara, glitter-sprinkled lashes, lash jewels, and some pretty out there lash accessories–you can see that creating a new look that expresses your personality by just using your eyelashes is certainly possible.

Final thoughts

Expressing yourself through your lashes can transform the way you look and the way you’re perceived from day-to-day. You can opt for insta-glam eyelash extensions for daily drama, or you can pick a more natural look that you can maintain yourself, with a little added excitement for those special occasions. 

No matter what option you choose, you want to make sure you’re taking care of your lashes. These are living, growing hairs that can prematurely fall out, and then you’re left with a bald spot until they regrow. Lash24 can be that perfect step to your morning and evening beauty regimen while providing nourishment to your lashes all day long.

Protect these little lashes by treating them gently, nourish them and your body with only the best ingredients, and try to lean toward a less is more makeup approach when you can.
