Tips To Fluff Up Your Natural Eyelashes 

You can make your natural lashes fluffy and bold with a few simple items you probably already have in your makeup bag. Just grab an eyelash curler, an eyelash primer, two types of mascara, and an eyelash comb. 

Use A Lash Curler

Make sure your eyelash curler is dry and clean. Use the curler, applying pressure from the root of your lash to the tip. Apply light pressure on the base, middle, and end of the lash, and avoid pulling upwards. Open the eyelash curler slowly after each push to protect your lashes.

Put On Primer

Next, put on a lash primer. Full coat your lashes, then let the primer dry to avoid clumps. To apply the primer, move your wand back and forth. Start at the root of the lash and work your way to the tip.

Apply Your First Mascara

For your first mascara, use a thinner formula with a curved brush to help separate the lashes.  Start at the root of the lash. Look down when you start applying the mascara and move the wand back and forth while blinking.  This will ensure that you coat all the lashes.

Use A Second Mascara

Use ForChics’s Better Than Falsies mascara for your second coat. This mascara will add length and volume to your lashes. Again, apply the mascara while looking down, moving your wand back and forth, and blinking. 

Finish With An Eyelash Comb

After the mascara coats have dried, you should run an eyelash comb through your lashes to prevent clumping.

How To Have Healthier Natural Lashes

Having long, healthy lashes will help make them fluffy using just mascara. 

Eating a healthy diet can be a game-changer when it comes to your lash health.  Make sure you are eating your vegetables and drinking plenty of water to help hydrate and nourish your lashes from the inside out. 

Green tea is another excellent way to help promote silky, fluffy lash growth.  You can drink green tea,place green tea-soaked cotton pads, or chilled green tea bags over your lashes.

ForChics’s Eyelash Enhancing Serum is another excellent product that can help your natural lashes look their best. Its boost of vitamins, peptides, and plant botanicals can help keep your lashes healthy, full, and long.

False Eyelashes 

All you need is a clean mascara wand to make your cheap falsies look fluffy and full. 

While the lashes are still in their packaging, take the wand and rub it back and forth across the lashes. This will help fluff and separate the false lashes.

If you want to spring for a higher-quality false eyelash, you should steer clear of synthetic lashes. Mink lashes are some of the most expensive (and fluffiest!) lashes on the market, and they don’t take much styling to look superb. Their quality also means that you can wear mink lashes multiple times if you take care of them properly.

Fluffed synthetic lashes, and luxurious mink lashes can be great options for creating a fluffy lash look, depending on your style, budget, and needs.

Eyelash Extensions

A great way to achieve long-lasting fluffy lashes is to get lash extensions. Lash extensions can be expensive, but they last from 2 to 8 weeks. As your extensions naturally shed out of your hair, you can go back to your lash technician for touch-ups to maintain your fluffy lash look.  

Here are ForChics’s do’s and don’ts for lash extension maintenance and care.

Eyelash Extension Do’s

  • Wash your lashes daily, but remember to be gentle with them. Keep your lashes free from oil, dirt, and debris.
  • Comb through your lashes every day with a clean mascara wand.  Comb them after you finish washing them to help keep them full and fluffy.
  • If you must put mascara on, make sure that it is not waterproof. Be gentle at the end of the day when you are removing your mascara.

Eyelash Extension Dont's

  • Avoid wetting your face with hot water for 48 hours after your extensions are applied. This means no washing your face with hot water, no steam baths, and no jacuzzis.
  • Don’t rub your eyes or pick at your lashes.
  • Don’t sleep facedown. Putting your face on your pillow can rub your lashes and damage your extensions.
  • Stay away from extreme heat.  Avoid being close to your oven, an open fire, or a hot yoga class.
