Get the Look of False Eyelashes
Learn how to recreate the look of fake or false eyelashes using Lancôme’s best mascara for long thick lashes.
False eyelashes can come with a bit of a learning curve, since applying them can require both steady hands and extra time in the morning. If that’s not an option for you right now, this may be the perfect time to get the look of false eyelashes using mascara. In fact, you can easily create the look of long lashes with mascara and a mascara primer; together they help make your lashes look thicker and fuller. Here’s how to get the look for yourself, no lash tech or false-eyelashes tutorials needed.
To get the look of false eyelashes with ease, just follow these simple steps:
- Start with clean lashes.
- Apply two coats of eyelash primer, such as Cils Booster XL Enhancing Lash Primer, to both the top and bottom lashes.
- Before the primer dries, apply a volumizing mascara like Monsieur Big, our mascara for the look of longer lashes. Apply as many coats as needed until you get the desired look.
- Remove your mascara at the end of the day with a makeup remover, then apply a lash serum like Cils Booster Lash Revitalizing Serum. The amino acid-infused formula reduces lash loss during makeup removal and fortifies lashes while you sleep.
Lash primer, which lengthens and thickens the look of lashes to boost the results of your mascara, is essential to get the look of false eyelashes. Plus, Cils Booster XL Enhancing Lash Primer creates a smooth, even layer on your lashes so mascara can better adhere, maximizing the final look of longer lashes. (For the best results, your primer should still be wet when you apply your mascara afterwards.)
Next, getting the look of long lashes with mascara. Monsieur Big is a voluminous mascara that uses a brush with wavy fiber bristles and a wide shape to deliver a thick coat onto lashes and create a false eyelashes effect. It also features polymers that create a sleeve around each lash, which keeps the mascara from clumping or flaking. That makes it buildable, so you can swipe on multiple coats of the mascara for 12x the volume without clumps or smudges. No wonder it’s our favorite mascara for long eyelashes.
By doubling up on both eyelash primer and a mascara that makes your lashes appear longer, you’ll be able to recreate the look of false eyelashes — easy. But don’t forget to remove it all before bed. Try our award-winning bi-phase eye makeup remover Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover; the lipid phase dissolves the mascara, but it’s still gentle enough for sensitive skin or those who wear contact lenses.
Then, apply Cils Booster XL Enhancing Lash Primer, which contains nourishing ingredients such as a vitamin E derivative and vitamin B5, to condition, or try the Cils Booster Lash Revitalizing Serum, which conditions damaged lashes and reduces lash loss during makeup removal. By conditioning your eyelashes regularly, they’ll help keep them looking revitalized.
