Lashes 101

Everybody seems to have their own remedies for getting luscious locks – some people wholly depend on the desi, at-home fixes and others turn up to their Kerastase appointments religiously. Then come eyebrows where over-pluckers regret their life choices. Lashes are very underrated. True, they can’t make or break your look but they add subtle touches which open up your eyes that much more, elevating your appearance. Here are a few ways you can get your lashes on fleeque:

Healthy Lashes

Two words: CASTOR OIL
Get your hands on cold pressed castor oil from The Soul Food Company
Grab a spooly, dip it in castor oil and apply it on your lashes every night before bed. Incorporate this into night time skincare routine and you’ll thank yourself. Although the results aren’t visible straight away, give it a month and you’ll start to notice a visible change in terms of thickness and length. How? Castor oil contains naturally high levels of ricinoleic acid, an omega-9 essential fatty acid that thickens your lashes and stimulates lash growth.

Taking off your makeup

You’ve probably heard this everywhere, especially when it comes to perfect skin. Mascara is notoriously difficult to remove. Make sure you take your time to get off every single bit, including the roots of your lashes. If you wear waterproof mascara, invest in a good eye-makeup remover, specifically designed to dissolve mascara and any other eye products.

Finding the right mascara

Volumising, lengthening, separating – there are a plethora of mascaras available in the market that boast to do different things – some have fancy wands, others take pride in their formula. Experiment and see what works for you. There are great drugstore and high-end options.

Here are some cult faves – both drugstore and high-end

An important thing to bear in mind with mascara is its short shelf life – only 3 months. Beyond this time frame, your mascara tube will serve as a habitat to nasty germs, making the user prone to eye infections. Do not overcoat your lashes with mascara – instead of the va va voom effect, you’ll get va va brittle and break, which is not what you’re looking to achieve.

At the end of the day, it all bows down to how much TLC you give your lashes. If you expect a 100% from them, reciprocate that expectation back.
