My Summer lashes secret

During Summer make-up is usually a total hassle for me, and I try to avoid it as much as possible. But that sweaty face could use a little boost now and then, and the best way to look fresh and awake instantly is by focusing on your eyes.

I like to fill in my brows a bit and give my lashes a lift, but mascara is just too much on a hot Summer day. So a little bird called Justine told me about her Summer lash secret only recently and I’m HOOKED. Want to know more? Scroll down for the before/after result!

Instead of mascara, use vaseline! Yup, that’s right. There’s a lot of beauty blogs reporting about using vaseline to nourish your lashes and to make them fuller, but I’m not sure if that’s actually been proven scientifically. The one thing I do know is that if you use it on your lashes during the day, it gives the same fuller, thickening effect as mascara!

So what I do is: I always curl my lashes first, and then apply the vaseline with my (clean) fingers. I just use the remaining vaseline on my eyelid and the brow arch too for an amazing glowing, almost wet-look effect!

It’s easier, quicker and looks more natural than full on mascara. You can of course use a clean mascara brush instead of your fingers! Don’t forget to take off the vaseline at night, as it’s not really proven what the long term consequences are for using it all the time.

Does that look like mascara or what?! Have you ever heard of this little tip before? And are you going to try it too?
