Long and thick lashes make your eyes look brighter and more defined. They also instantly elevate any makeup look and add a touch of glamour to your appearance. Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed with naturally thick lashes. This is why many opt to wear false eyelashes and extensions. However, wearing them regularly can be time-consuming, uncomfortable, expensive and also quite a hassle. 

On the other hand, if you prefer some pro tips to make your short lashes appear longer and fuller, then this article is just for you. In this quick guide, we’ll explore 5 expert makeup hacks to get thicker and longer lashes without resorting to falsies. So, keep reading.

1. Use an Eyelash Curler

Most likely, you have heard of eyelash curlers. They are simple grooming tools to curl your lashes and make your eyes look more awake and brighter. They are also designed to snuggle up to the roots of your lashes and give them an instant lift - but without pinching the skin of your eyelids.

These eyelash curlers are available in the market in different styles and brands. Some are really good, while some can easily be given a miss. Here, I recommend that you try Vega Premium Eyelash Curler. It's ergonomic design, easy grip and precision in curling even those tiny lashes that are present at the corner of your eyes, makes them very popular among beauty enthusiastic. 

However, getting your hand at the right makeup tool is only half the battle won. The remaining half is in knowing how to use it correctly. Begin with cleaning your eyes thoroughly. Then, using your eyelash curler, keep it clamped as close to the root of your lashes as possible for 20 seconds. Do this for both your upper and lower lashes and before applying your mascara.

For a more professional looking curl, heat your eyelash curler for about 15-20 seconds from a blow dryer, before using it. This helps to give long-lasting and thicker curls to your lashes. However, be careful while doing so. Check the curler by touching it with your fingers, to ensure it is not too hot, and then curl your lashes. 

2. Translucent Lash Primer Does the Trick

A mascara primer or an eyelash primer is used on the eyelashes, just before you apply mascara. This product helps to create a smooth base for your mascara, while enhancing its performance and giving drama to your eyes.

For this, you need to apply a light coat of clear lash primer from the root to the tip of your lashes and wait for a couple of seconds. Thereafter, apply a fresh coat of mascara to amplify your lashes. Smashbox Photo Finish Lash Primer is just the product you need to get this look. It is light weight, has the right consistency and makes your eyelashes look curlier and fuller after you apply mascara.

3. Apply More than One Coat of Mascara

Mascara is a makeup staple when it comes to achieving fuller lashes. However, do you know that not all mascaras give the same effect? The right mascara and the way you apply it can make all the difference. That is why, for fuller-looking eyelashes, look for mascaras with volumizing and thickening formulas, as well as ones that contain fibers.

You can experiment with different types of mascaras - waterproof, lengthening or volumizing, to find the best one for you. Give L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara a try. It gives a real falsie effect on lashes, is long-lasting, has a good bristle brush and does a fabulous job of offering volume and length to your lashes in a single coat. 

Alternatively, you can also try the popular Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara. It is light weight, infused with nourishing bamboo extracts and has a good staying power. It also delivers full volume to your lashes within minutes. 

To get the best results, apply mascara in 2 or more coats to your upper and lower lashes. Start by applying a thin coat of mascara at the root of your upper lash and then gradually sweep it up to the tip by wiggling the wand back and forth. Do it for all the lashes, including the shorter ones at the corner of your eyes. This will help to distribute the mascara evenly and add volume to your lashes. Likewise, use downward stroke while applying mascara to your lower lashes. 

4. Comb your Lashes

After applying mascara, use an eyelash comb or a clean spoolie to comb through your lashes. This step is important, as it will help separate all your lashes and make them look cleaner and fuller. Combing your lashes will also help get rid of any clumps that might have formed while applying double or more coats of mascara or any other eye makeup product.

The very handy Vega Eye Groomer Brush is a 2-in-1 Brow and Lash Comb Brush. While you can use the tight bristles to define and groom your eyebrows, the other end with fine comb teeth can be used to separate your lashes to perfection.

5. Eyeliner

An eyeliner can do wonders in creating the appearance of voluminous eyelashes. This is why, in addition to using it above the eyelids, color the bit of skin under the roots of your lashes to make your eyes pop out. Using a good quality eyeliner that matches the color of your mascara, tightly line the upper and lower waterline of your eyelids, while extending it to the outer and inner corners. This will add subtle density and make your eyelashes look thick.

You can use a waterproof and smudge proof eyeliner like Maybelline New York Colossal Bold Liner to create a naturally fuller eyelash look. 

In conclusion, achieving fuller lashes without falsies is possible. With a few simple makeup hacks, a little bit of practice and experimentation, you can easily enhance your natural lashes and create a look that is beautiful as well as dramatic.
