Products That Produce "Phat" Lashes

Yeh yeh, I used "Phat" instead of "Fat," it just had a bit more "oomph" to it right??  Ha!! And who doesn't want more "oomph" in their lashes!  There are some products I've been using lately that when used together, have created the illusion of a much thicker lash line.

{All products used together to create my PHAT lashes!}

Now before I list all of my products used, I've posted enough about mascaras and lash enhancing products to know that, everything I use, might not work for the next girl.  It's kind of like a perfume I think smells good on my best friend, might not smell that great once it gets on my wrists because we have different body chemistry!  Same goes for lash products- we are all slightly different- thank goodness though!  Being unique is good.

That being said, here's the lowdown on the products that I am currently using 
that are working it for me, in the order that I use them.

1.   *LashEm lash enhancing gel. This is one of those products that I didn't realize how much I needed until I quit using it.  Shame on me.  I didn't really think it had done much for my lashes, but once I quit, my lashes went back to small and weak.  Now 2 weeks later of starting it back, applying every single night, my lashes are feeling and looking healthier before any other products have been applied!  Their site says it works on brows too, which I haven't tried, but would be a huge bonus for those with sad brow hair!

2.  Lancome le Khol eyeliner and Tweezerman classic lash curler.  I use a dark brown liner to line the inner waterline of my upper and lower lash lines to create an illusion of a darker lash line before anything. Black would be too obvious and unnatural which is why I like using a brown shade to look more like natural hairs.  Lash curlers are a MUST.  I don't go a day without using one.

3.  blinc Lash Primer  allows you to have a larger base to work with before you apply your mascara.  This white-ish formula didn't impress me after the first few uses.  But the more I use it, the more I like it. Like any mascara, the formula must build up on the brush before it performs at its max.  The key with lash primers, is to make sure to let it sit for about 30 seconds before applying your mascara, but to not let it sit too long to where it gets too dry and hard.  It's a tricky product- but mastering it makes a noticeable difference.

 {With lash primers, I focus mainly on the base of the lashes and the tips.}

{I blot my mascara wand with a kleenex to get the clumps off and expose the bristles for better application.}

4.  L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in black is one of my all time favorites for drugstore mascara.  The waterproof version is even better for keeping the curl to stay put.

Your lashes look awesome! I used a lash primer from Hard Candy before and it was good. Voluminous is my HG mascara. So far, nothing beats it, even the newer one from the same line. I'm glad these products work for you and I love the eye makeup look you did as well.

I love this post and your lashes look amazing! It's so hard to get good separation like that and not get the spidery clumps.
