How to Expand Bottom Lashes | Bourjois Color Edition 24H Cream Shadow Swatches, EOTD

 


Have you ever seen my bottom lashes that thick and multiplied? NO. Most of the time, they just look like....like....a drunk anorexic spider's legs. You can go check out the Makeup Tutorials Tab if you want to see them in all my eye pics.
I'll tell you how I made them look like that in a minute. First, let's talk about the new Bourjois Color Edition 24H Cream To Powder Eyeshadow. The color I got is #04 Kaki Cheri, a khaki green shade with gold shimmer.
It is different from Maybelline Color Tattoo & MAC Paintpot. At the top of my head, it has a more spongy texture. I like it A LOT. It has a silky texture, is super easy to blend & never creases. It turns into a powder finish and lasts all day.


Bourjois Color Edition 24H Cream Shadow Kaki Cheri Swatches: One swipe, Layered
I love this shade. When I wear it alone, sometimes it looks like I have a black eyeshadow with it. It was quite hard to click this shade, since greens are always difficult to capture, at least for me. It's a shame they did not make matte shades in browns & nudes.


Price: £6.99 | Rs.704 from Boots.

My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 4.5/5.

Available in 5 other shades:

These are all the products I used for this EOTD: Lakme Kohl Ultimate to tightline & on waterline, Bourjois Liner Feutre Felt Tip Liner, Eylure Chelsea Lashes.


How To Expand Bottom Lashes :
  • Apply 2 coats of a volumizing mascara, but wipe off the wand on the mascara's tube before applying. This will remove excess product and prevent clumping & smudging. Apply 2nd coat while the previous coat is still wet. I used Maybelline Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara: I'm really loving this for my bottom lashes these days.



  • Let the 1st mascara dry a bit. If you see the mascara has added fibres to the tips of your lashes and they appear longer, sometimes balled up....
  • Pinch the tips with index finger & thumbs and gently pull them out.This is like trimming them. Like blunt hairstyles make your hair look thicker, doing this will also make think lash hair look fatter.
  • After you've done that, use another mascara with a brush or comb wand to coat & separate the lashes I used like the Bourjois Fan-tastic Volume Mascara....

This one has a hairbrush kinda brush. I'm loving this for this purpose. Alone, it's not a great mascara for thin lashes, but it gives lashes more oomph when layered on top of another volumizing mascara.
DONE!
Before: This is after Maybelline Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara. Pic taken when sun was up, that's why it appears warmer. Although you can see the gold in Kaki Chi more there.

After: After Bourjois Fan-tastic Volume Mascara.


Hope you liked this little tip. Some of you are like: 'Eh, my bottom lashes look better than your AFTER lashes even without mascara on!'  Okay, let's trade. You give me lashes, I give you my entire makeup collection. Yes, I'm serious!

Have a great week, all! <3

  10. For some weird reason,I dont like my bottom lashes to look to full or long because I feel like it looks too artificial!! :/
    But, I already have pretty great bottom lashes,although it is not as full as yours in the after picture,i think it looks pretty decent!! So.What I am getting to is..If you wanna tradeeeeeeeeeeee... :D :D I am game..!!

    What I would really like are thicker upper lashes.My lashes are long,but not thick enough..!! :'(

    I guess we all need something to complaint about..!
