I have to tell you that I started freaking out a few months ago when I noticed my eyelashes barely fit into the eyelash curler anymore. My lashes were starting to get shorter and shorter but this was just crazy! I even noticed that my eyelashes were starting to grow in different directions! Even my daughter noticed how short my lashes were. The mascara that I was using was actually damaging my lashes.
Trying everything from serums, different mascaras, fake eyelashes, to false eyelash extensions. I loved the look, but they drove me crazy after a while and were very costly. I was ready to just give up and accept my stubby lashes, chalking it up to “aging,”
Long eyelashes really make your eyes pop out and look so pretty. Well, I have a solution that you are going to love! Here are my best TIPS for beautiful eyelashes. But, first a little eyelash lesson my pretties.
If your eyes are the windows into your soul, then your eyelashes are the curtains that dress them.
Mascara – Eye Lashes 101
Your eyes have between 3 to 5 rows of eyelashes. Your upper lids have around 70 to 150 lashes and the lower eyelid has about 60 to 80 eyelashes. They protect the eye from foreign particles getting in them.
As you age you may notice (like I have) that your eyelashes start to thin out and do not grow as long. You may even go down to only having 1 row of lashes.
You know that I have been preaching to you that you need to clean up your makeup and personal care products. If you have not watched my video on hormones and how toxic chemicals affect your body and hormones please watch it ASAP.
Not All Mascaras Are Created Equal
Your lash follicles are more sensitive than all other follicles. They weren’t designed to handle harsh chemicals like those found in modern mascaras and the removers needed to take them off. If the follicle is damaged daily, your lashes will grow short, stubby or in strange directions.
Just about all mascaras are loaded with toxic chemicals like petroleum, glue, parabens and more. The natural mascaras that I have tried have been really bad.
- End allergic reactions
- Reverse years of lash damage
- Protect your lashes forever
- Have the strong, luscious lashes you desire
- Have healthier, more youthful lashes, every day
- End watery smudges and clumps once and for all
- Never be embarrassed again by unhealthy eye lashes
- Finally throw away the toxic products that have been damaging your lashes
I stumbled upon the most amazing mascara I could possibly dream of by accident! I found the website for this Red Apple Mascara and once I started reading about it I realized I needed to try it. Quickly, I ordered two tubes, because my mom was also having the same experience I was. My mom’s birthday was coming up and I thought it would make a great holiday gift for her.
My mascara arrived and I could not wait to give it a try. I had read all the reviews on the website. One thing that the instructions tell you is that the mascara feels “dry” compared to other mascaras. They said give the Lash Project Mascara 60 days to work its magic. So I thought, “ok, I can at least do that.”
Left Eye With Red Apple Mascara
Right Eye With No Mascara
Week one went by and nothing great happened. What I did notice, is that the mascara did not clump into little balls on my lashes. It went on smoothly and easily. I was diligent about putting on the mascara every day. At night I would use coconut oil to take the mascara off with. I also noticed how easy it was to take off the mascara. There was no hard rubbing, it came off very easily.
OMG, it was crazy! My lashes were getting longer and starting to straighten out! They were even starting to fit back into the eyelash curler. I was jumping up and down. I honestly could not wait to put on my mascara every morning.
I fell in love! My eyelashes were smashing! They were all going in one direction again, they were longer and curling beautifully in the eyelash curler. My lashes almost looked like I was wearing fake lashes because they looked so good! And that is just with one coat. I could not be happier and I will never, ever, ever use any other mascara again.
My daughter (16) even commented on how great my lashes were looking. Do you know what she did? My daughter took the second mascara I bought for my mom and has been using it ever since. Now she has beautiful lashes to begin with but now, WOW! I am so happy that she will not have to go through what I went through. All her friends keep asking her what she is doing.
Looking back, I wish that I had taken a photo in the beginning so you could have seen my crazy crisscross lashes. But as you can see, they have changed now for the better.
