How to: Long and voluminous lashes!

So, a lovely little old lady asked me whether my eyelashes were real today.
I love sharing my tips on creating longer looking lashes so thought I'd show you what they looked like today (after a ten hour shift at work, so forgive my lack of concealer and red eyes) and tell you what products I used.

I first curled my lashes with an eyelash curler. The one I used is by Shu Uemura and I highly recommend it.

I then apply a generous layer of Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof mascara in Very Black (Available HERE). I use this to keep my lashes curled, otherwise within a couple of minutes they droop back down and become poker straight again. This is the only mascara I've found that keeps my lashes curled all day.

After waiting a minute or two for this coat to dry I used Bourjois Coupe De Theatre (Available HERE) which has micro fibres that attach to your lashes to give ultimate length.

Again, after a minute or two I then applied a generous coat of Benefit Bad Gal Lash in Black (Available HERE

And that's it!

I love getting unexpected compliments on my makeup, especially when I don't think I've put that much effort in!
Hope this helps some of you who are looking for new mascaras, I really recommend all three together.
