Straight lashes, watery eyes
Re: Straight lashes, watery eyes
I have Asian eyes and Asian lashes so I feel your pain on a whole other level.
I use the Shu Uemura lash curler which is great. I also use the smaller half inch sized lash curler so I can curl in sections instead of all at once. I got mine in Japan.
I find that waterproof mascaras work best for holding curls longer but in the end, they all straighten out throughout the day.
I saw one girl curl her lashes, use a clean mascara wand to apply Vaseline to her lashes, then apply mascara to just the tip of her lashes. I haven't tried that trick yet but I definitely will!
My favorite alternative option is using SEPHORA COLLECTION Luxe False Lash Flare. They're a bit more on the expensive side compared to ones at Target, TJ Maxx, etc. but they are great quality! I use the SEPHORA COLLECTION House of Lashes® Eyelash Adhesive White which is like super glue for falsies. I use mascara to blend my lashes to the falsies.
Another option I have yet to try is lash lift/ lash tint or extensions. I wish I could do this but since I always do my eye makeup, it's not the best option for me.
If you want thicker lashes, it's best to use a serum to moisturize them (but they won't grow longer). There is one real approved lash growth serum but it's prescription only. All other serums are not approved and there is no proof they actually work.
