Thanks to the rise of social media and online makeup tutorials, having the perfect eyelashes is easier than ever. If you’ve been trying to improve your lash situation, but maybe require a little guidance, this advice just might place you on the road to getting the lashes you dream about.
Go to a Professional Lash Salon
It’s hard to go wrong when placing your lashes in the hands of the pros. See what salons are in your area and look up what services they have to offer beforehand. It also helps to find out their reputation, whether it’s through sites like the Better Business Bureau or simply through word of mouth. If you’re more interested in the supplies they have to offer for home use, you can always see who offers professional-level lash products in your area, e.g. by looking up eyelash supplies in San Francisco in your search engine of choice, or even the Yellow Pages.
Research Articles and Blogs
It’s fairly common for experts in the eyelash field to share their knowledge and tips by writing posts and pieces that offer advice. However, before following the advice of whatever blog or article you happen to find, be sure to verify its legitimacy. Read about the authors at their About page, or simply compare their tips to that of other similar sites. If you see similar advice across multiple pages, chances are that’s the advice you want to follow.
Look up Online Video Tutorials
As mentioned earlier, there has been a boom of eyelash tutorials in recent years, thanks in particular to YouTube. Visit various channels and watch a few of their videos to see whose advice best suits the lashes you want to have. The most trustworthy ones often tend to have large amount of subscribers, but even then, you should pick the channels whose do-it-yourself videos best reflect your tastes.
Practice, Practice, Practice
As the Romans were fond of saying, repetitio est mater studiorum: “repetition is the mother of all learning.” Don’t get discouraged if you can’t quite get your eyelashes looking the way you want them on the first few tries. Cut yourself some slack and give yourself room to learn as you try out new techniques. If something just doesn’t seem to be working for you, move onto something else, or even ask a friend for help.
So give these things a try and, if all goes well, you’ll end up with eyelashes you won’t feel the need to lash out about.
