Learn how to get instantly lifted lashes and recreate the look of lash extensions at home using Lancôme’s best mascara for the look of long lashes.
Lash extensions are one of the easiest ways to get the look of long lashes. However, getting eyelash extensions from a pro can require an investment of both time and money — and that’s not even counting the maintenance. The good news? You can easily recreate a temporary look of lifted lashes and lash extensions at home with just mascara. In fact, our Lash Idôle mascara creates the look of lifted lashes and offer results comparable to lash extensions. Here’s how.
Lash extensions are a process in which actual lash hair is glued to your real lashes, making them look longer and fuller. They can last a long time if they’re cared for properly, but the process of getting those lash extensions applied can be time-consuming and pricey. However, this procedure could bring risks such as infections or temporary or permanent breakage.1
Lash lifts can create the look of curled and lifted lashes — think of it as a perm for your lashes. Subtler than lash extensions, lash lifts are usually done by a pro in a salon, who applies the lifting formula to the lashes. These can last for weeks.
With Lash Idôle mascara, you can get the look of both lash extensions and lifted lashes at home. This lash lifting mascara formula is designed to immediately lift lashes while delivering clump-free volume and length. It creates a fanned-out fringe that’s as good for everyday wear as it is for a dressed-up night out.
This lash lifting mascara does the trick in two ways. First, it has a lightweight gel formula that lifts the lashes and holds the curve all day. Because the mascara is formulated with film formers, it creates instantly lifted lashes that last all day.
Not only that, but as a mascara for long lashes, it also has an innovative brush with 360 micro-bristles of 90 different sizes to target and volumize every lash from root to tip, even the smallest lashes. Our unique brush enables the mascara formula to lengthen lashes without clumping or smudging, to create the look of lash extensions. Finally, the weightless formula is infused with white tea extract and leaves lashes soft and supple — not crunchy — you can add more coats easily to create the look of extra long lashes.
Even though Lash Idôle alone will give you the look of lash extensions at home, give lashes an extra boost by first applying Cils Booster XL Eyelash Primer to maximize volume, length and curl while conditioning lashes with vitamin E and provitamin B5. Then, with the curved side of the Lash Idôle mascara wand horizontal and facing upwards, swipe it upwards for the top lashes and downwards for bottom lashes. Layer until you get the look of lifted lashes or enough length for it to look like lash extensions.
