Eyelash extension effect mascara

Eyelash 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 get the look of lifted lashes and lash extensions at home with just mascara. In fact, our Lash Idôle mascara provides lashes with instant lift, length, and curl just like lash extensions and lash lifts. Here’s how.

What are lash extensions?

Lash extensions are a process where 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. Not to mention a lot of upkeep. However, this procedure could bring risks such as infections or temporary or permanent breakage.1

What’s a lash lift?

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.

How do you make mascara look like eyelash extensions?

If you’re looking to create a lash extension effect and lash lift effect with mascara there are a few simple steps you can incorporate into your lash routine. While it may take a little longer than simply swiping a mascara wand through your lashes – the results are definitely worth it.

Step 1: Tightline with eyeliner: Tightlining your eyes (applying eyeliner in-between the lashes) can help to make the lash bed look thicker without a thick line of eyeliner.

Step 2: Curl Lashes: Curling your eyelashes can be a great basic step to give the lashes a mini lash lift.

Step 3: Apply lash primer: A mascara primer can help to intensify the effects of your mascara and add extra lift and length to the lashes. 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. The formula is also infused with micro-fibers that help further enhance the lash extension look.

Step 4: Apply a lash lifting mascara: Apply one to two coats of Lash Idôle Lash-Lifting Mascara to the lashes. 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.

Step 5: To enhance the natural and feathery soft look of eyelash extensions use a small lash comb or brush to separate and define your lashes. This can help add additional lift and make your mascara look like lash extensions.
