Have you noticed that we are hugely obsessed with beautiful long lashes these days? It’s essentially impossible to log onto Instagram or Pinterest without seeing Kylie Jenner’s big, fluttery eyelashes blinking back at you. Now lashes are even part of the “natural” look – what gives, eh?
Lashes make everyone look better, but have you ever wondered why everyone is so crazy about mink eyelash extensions these days?
Mink eyelashes look and feel more natural: they have a soft, fluffy, fluttery look that you can only get from real hair. No matter what you do, a synthetic lash will always look a bit, well, synthetic. Plus, you can heat-curl mink lashes unlike synthetic eyelash extensions (that’s a plastic disaster waiting to happen).
This may surprise you girls, but even though I adore getting all dolled up and spending forever getting my makeup just perfect, there are some days where I just want to skip it all and go natural. Maybe it’s just me, but I find a Zen-like quality in facing the world purely, wearing only sunscreen and lip balm.
If you’re the same way, you’ll enjoy this tip: skip your mascara for a day and wear Vaseline on your eyelashes. Yes, I do mean petroleum jelly. It makes your lashes look thick and shiny, plus it protects and moisturizes an area of your body I bet you never moisturize. It’s not only good looking, but good for you! What could be better?
