It takes about 150 days for your eyelashes to regrow fully after they fall out. Since that’s such a long time, you need to practice regular eyelash maintenance to avoid losing any more eyelashes than necessary!
Making mistakes with eyelash care can lead to difficult-to-work-with lashes that look stubby and sad.
What can you do to make sure that your lashes look great without excessive eyelash care products? Keep reading to find out.
1. Using Mascara Before Curling
If your lashes are droopy or straight, the eyelash curler is an essential part of your makeup and general care toolkit. However, it’s very important to curl your lashes before you put on your mascara.
The main reason for this is that the mascara could end up sticking to both your lashes and the curler, and then when you unclamp, the curler might pull your lashes right out. Ouch!
You’ll look a little bizarre when you’re missing a clump of your lashes, but it is also going to really hurt when they all get pulled out at once. It’s best to avoid this issue entirely by applying your mascara after you curl from here on out.
2. Sleeping in Mascara
We all know we are supposed to take off our makeup before we go to bed, but you’re lying if you say you’ve never even considered sleeping with your mascara on.
However, it’s really important to remember that the reason we should remove our makeup is not just about avoiding acne or even getting makeup in our eyes – it’s about protecting the eyelashes!
Your mascara is holding your lashes in place, so when you’re moving around in your sleep, that stiffness is getting dragged over your pillow and blankets. This can lead to breakage or eyelashes falling out because they don’t have their natural flexibility.
3. Scrubbing Away Eye Makeup
Speaking of eye makeup, even if you are taking it off before bed, are you doing it right? It can be so tempting after a long day to start scrubbing hard with your makeup remover to get it off as soon as possible, but you shouldn’t fall for this!
The skin around your eyes is so delicate, and any constant rubbing you may do will lead to premature wrinkles and a loss of lashes. Be gentle with your skin and your eyes!
4. Clamping Your Lashes
Another eyelash curler tip to consider is that you don’t want to clamp down with the curler too hard.
It may sound like the easiest way to get your lashes to curl, but what it really does is consistently crush part of your lashes down to create the ‘J’ shape you’re going for. Over time, this might lead to breakage and short, stubby lashes.
Consider using products that help with conditioning, like Perfume Price Revitalash, to keep your lashes strong.
Try pulsing the curler on your lashes for about 10 seconds instead to still end up with a great curl.
