With natural beauty all over the runways, one of the best ways to look natural yet put together is to rock luxe eyelashes.
Lashes are one of the most important pieces of your look. Taking care of your eyelashes so that they’re long, lush and healthy will save you a ton of time and effort when you’re getting ready.
Here are step-by-step instructions to ensure you’re making the most of your gorgeous lashes!
1. Start with a good base. If lashes are the focus of your look, skin has to look perfect. The best way to achieve this isn’t by adding a ton of foundation. It’s starting with healthy skin. Use a gentle cleanser, like the Simple Skincare Moisturizing Facial Cleanser, which doesn’t have any harsh chemicals and follow with a moisturizer that has SPF to protect your skin, like the Simple Skincare Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15.
2. Use a natural shadow. Just because you want va-va-voom lashes doesn’t mean you need to wear nighttime makeup during the day. Stick to your usual your daytime look, and pick an eye shadow that’s a few shades darker than your natural skin tone.
3. Coat your top and bottom eyelashes with primer and mascara. Make sure each lash is coated with mascara, even if you have to use two coats. It’s crucial to give your makeup extra surface area to stick to!
4. Dust your face with translucent powder. When your whole look is complete, dust translucent powder all over your face. This gives your makeup extra staying power, which helps it last all day and night.
When you need to remove your gorgeous lashes, remember to reach for Simple Skincare Eye Makeup Remover Pads – they’re a lifesaver when you’re ready for bed and done with your beautiful lashes!
