Get Great Lashes – Top Tips From Elle (+DIY Mascara Recipe)

By Renee Kruger March 30, 2021 0 comments

Want great eyelashes but not sure how? Check out Elle’s top tips for great lashes (and how to keep them!) and grab your quick and easy DIY mascara recipe here.

No matter what look you’re going for, great eyelashes can seal it and really make your eyes POP!


Although genetics play a large part in the length of your lashes, diet and lifestyle also have their place. And even if we never really see them falling out (like our hair does), we still lose between 1 and 5 lashes per day!


Lash cycles vary, but are anywhere between 60 to 90 days in length, during which time new growth happens as old lashes fall out or are ripped out by harsh makeup techniques and accidents.


Apart from the costs involved in using fake eyelashes, the glue and effort is not worth it when there are much easier, cheaper, and less harmful ways to get great lashes – and keep them.


We caught up with Elle Magazine’s top tips for great lashes, and uncover the secrets from these great articles.

How To Nail The Art Of An At-Home Lash Tint

Top Tips For Newbies

Your eyelashes change as you age, and chemicals and constant makeup can damage your sensitive eyelash follicles.


Ingredients in false eyelashes (such as formaldehyde) can irritate your eye’s skin and cause red, itchy, swollen lids and lash lines.


In addition to this, applying or removing falsies incorrectly could damage and weaken your lashes even further.


Dermatologist Brian Zelickson, M.D., is an associate professor of dermatology at the University of Minnesota, and recommends that first-timers use an approved salon to help them get to grips with the new lashes or extensions.


Wash off old mascara and eye makeup with warm water and baby shampoo so there’s less chance of adding to the irritations, says Zelickson.
