long lashes

just thought i would share some lash secrets!! 


1) aquaphor thickens the lashes, and vaseline is in fact horrible for them! it quite literally says on the vaseline packaging “for external use only” and “do not apply near eyes”.




mascara: apply vertically first, then horizontally, only apply 2 layers, on 2nd layer don’t dip the wand back in.


good mascaras:

Rare Beauty by Selena Gomez Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara Black 

SEPHORA COLLECTION Big By Definition Defining & Volumizing Mascara Ultra Black - black 

REFY Lash Sculpt Lengthen and Lift Mascara Black 


3) curling your lashes makes a huge difference! my fav curler is from elf! always remember that products don’t have to be expensive to be effective!

Re: long lashes

Hi @qween18 ! Quick clarification from a longtime Aquaphor Ointment fan, and assuming you’re talking about plain ol’ Vaseline jelly: 


Vaseline is 100% petrolatum. Aquaphor is 41% petrolatum. Both are safe to use around the eyes, unless your eyes or skin happen to be sensitive to an ingredient in either product. Heck, some doctors recommend Vaseline to help heal dry flaky skin on eyelids. 


Vaseline’s warning label (in the US, anyway) reads “do not get into eyes.” That’s not the same as “do not use around the eyes.” They’re advising us not to touch our eyeballs with Vaseline. Sure, applying Vaseline directly to lashes means it could end up in your eyes. But the American Academy of Ophthalmology says it’s safe to use a small amount on lashes. Key words there are “a small amount.” Don’t glob it on thickly, otherwise you’ll end up with temporarily blurry vision and risk clogging the oil glands in your lids.
