My eyelashes grew a tad longer! That much. Okay, I know it may not look like a big deal to some, but for me it's something. I want to say a tad thicker too, but I don't want you to loff.
I started noticing it last month. I'd apply a mascara and think, "It never made them this long before, how come?"
It was kind of easy for me to narrow down the products that may have caused it coz I was stuck in a rut when it came to everyday makeup, I'd use the same stuff every single day.
Here are the possible causes:
- Vibrating Mascara: I mainly used Maybelline Pulse Perfection Mascara. I think the vibration is like exercise for the lashes. Think about it, head massages to stimulate hair growth, vibrating mascara to stimulate eyelash growth. If you want your lashes to grow, get any vibrating mascara NOW! Pulse Perfection is not available in India, but you could try Bourjois Fast & Perfect Rotating Mascara OR if you know someone who works at Indira Gandhi International Airport, ask him/her to get it for you coz I bought mine from there.
- Lakme Kohl Ultimate: It's the only liner I used to tightline in December. It's so gentle & moisturizing on my eyes, so I guess buttery soft pencils are best for maintaining healthy lashes. Makes sense, right? [I reviewed it here ]
- Improper Eye Cleaning: Okay, this may freak people out, but I believe it played some role in it. It's winter, so most nights I felt lazy about washing my face properly. By properly, I mean going through my whole routine of Cleansing Oil, then face wash, then maybe some makeup remover. I'd just do a quick for-the-heck-of-it wash with a face wash, so I never really removed all traces of mascara & liner. This means less rubbing & pressure on the lashes.
- No Eyelash Curler: My eyelash curler was always dirty & sticky (with eye products, not something gross), so on most days I'd skip it- instead of cleaning it ;p. I think eyelash curlers give your lashes a lift but they can't be good for lashes in the long run- especially if you have weak ones. Try your eyelash curler on the tips of your hair, and decide for yourself if short and sparse lashes can handle it everyday.
*Some say Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly) also helps eyelashes grow longer. I used it, but not long enough to actually find out if it's true.
If you all have any other tips, please share them with me. I'll try anything! :)
