Big Lashes On A Budget!

Mascara that wont break the bank!

In my last post I spoke to you about my current favourite high end mascara ‘Lancôme Hypnose Drama’, However I appreciate that not everyone wants to spend £22.50 on mascara so here I am with a very worthy alternative that won’t break the bank.

The mascara in question is Maybelline ‘The Falsies’ priced at a very reasonable £7.99. The brush is quite a lot smaller than its Lancôme rival however  I the find the curved brush enables me to really get in there and grab every single lash. This mascara doesn’t smudge or clump and lasts all day without flaking and really gives me the blackest of black fluttery lashes!

My top tips for luscious lashes!

It has to be said my long lashes would not be achieved by mascara alone and I do have a few handy tips to create long fluttery lashes.

  1. Always curl your lashes

Invest in an eyelash curler; they really do make a difference; a good quality lash curler can perk up even the shortest of lashes! My favourite is by Mac which is priced at £16 and comes with one additional refill. Each refill lasts me a good year so it’s well worth the money.Squeeze, release and I’m good to go!

  1. Use a portable mirror

I always use a portable mirror on a stand and slightly tilt the head this allows me to get really close up and enables me to grasp all of my lashes with the brush. Look up and down ensuring you grab every lash!

  1. Don’t be shy!

Use more than one coat to really dramatise those lashes! If you’re using a decent mascara you shouldn’t have any problems with clumping.
