The Trick to Getting Amazing Lashes

Being a massive beauty addict, you would think I had a long list of mascaras that I love – but it’s the one thing I’ve just never managed to get right! 

I was pretty smitten with the Maybelline Lash Sensational, but for me it only lasted around a month before it started to dry out. I decided to picked up the L’Oreal Lash Sculpt and it was just ok, on it’s own it adds a lot of volume but does leave my lashes looking clumpy. After seeing a lot of people use two mascaras to get the perfect finish I decided to pick up the L’Oreal Telescopic – and now I think I’m on to a winner. 

I am lucky to have naturally long lashes anyway, but finding a mascara to compliment that has always been a challenge. Before I apply any mascara I always curl my lashes first, I use the Vintage Cosmetics curlers. Not only are they the best blog photo prop ever, they actually do a really good job at curling my lashes and holding the curl throughout the day too. I apply a coat of the L’Oreal False Lash Sculpt which adds a lot of volume, and then without letting that dry I go straight in with the Telescopic, which works brilliantly at adding length and separation to the lashes. The end results is lashes that are long and separated but full of volume all at the same time, something that one mascara has never been able to do for me! 

Using more than one mascara may be the way to go for amazing lashes! I’m tempted to try some different combos in the future to test this further, there used to be a lot of hype around Max Factor mascaras which I haven’t tried for years… 

What mascara/ mascara’s are your favourite for perfect lashes?

    I've always loved to layer my mascara and the L'Oréal Telescopic works really well as a second coat as it is extremely black and, as you said, really lengthening! I also agree about the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, I like it but it dries out very quickly!

    I'm in love with Benefit Roller lash mascara but I love super long and fanned out lashes. I haven't used L'Oréal Telescopic in years! I might give it a go again after reading this, funny how beauty products tend to circulate through our collections

    For me the mascara doesn't matter as much as the technique. Doing a little zigzag motion as I apply the mascara coats them so evenlyrics but without clumping them. I've used Always mascara but since then I'm on the hunt for something different though I'm not sure what I'm looking for as of yet.
