Here is to the friend who always looks spot-on glamorous up to the tip of her lashes. The holidays make the perfect excuse to give your eyelash-obsessed friends the perfect gifts to add to their beauty stash.
First, the Lashes
Well, you need not know a lot about eyelashes for you to please your friend who gushes over eyelashes like Kim Kardashian West. But girl, those lashes are not even real!
For starters, Kim puts on false lashes. There are a lot of fake eyelashes to try that are really cheap, but for A-lister lashes, try Huda Beauty.
For a pair of swoon-worthy eyelashes, we like Huda Beauty Faux Mink Eyelashes #13. This sexy pair of lashes are totally wearable day or night. This look will get you holiday-ready glam in half the time
Second, the Ultimate Must-Have
But how to put those faux lashes on? Eyelash adhesives are the way to go. Be cautious about choosing adhesives. You want one that cares for your eyes so you do not suffer from pink eye and skin rashes.
You should also look into getting an eyelash glue that is easy to use sans mess. We love the mess-free application of KISS Strip Eyelash Adhesive. It comes with a precision brush so you can control just how much adhesive you want on your eyes.
Plus, the formulation is infused with aloe vera that boosts lash growth, too! This cruelty-free eyelash essential is also waterproof and odor-free. It is super strong hold too so there is no chance of faux lashes falling out in the middle of your date.
Third, for that Extra Curl
Forget gem-decorated eyelash curlers, what you need is a mascara with a want that doubles as a curler. We are talking about this curling pro Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara.
It is an eyelash curler and mascara all-in-one! The arched wand will help you achieve wide-open eyes without having to reach out for your curler. That means no more painful tugging at your lashes, ouch-free!
Fourth, to Grow Your Lashes Out
No, you did not accidentally cut your own lashes but if you wished to have longer lashes even by a couple of centimeters, you need an eyelash serum.
We like the Rapid Lash Eyelash and Eyebrow Enhancing Serum. Yes, this special formulation doubles as your brow growth buddy, too.
While chances are slim you cut your lashes, more too often we over-pluck or wax our brows too much. While we are yet to see this serum get our brows to Cara Delevigne thickness, we do like what it is doing to our lashes.
This formula acts like a clear mascara to add a luxe shine to our lashes. The polypeptides strengthens our lashes to prevent them from falling out.
Fifth, for When You Need to Cry It Out
Holidays would mean a few teary-eyed sessions with family and friends. So make sure you have smudge-proof mascara on.
We like Maybelline New York Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara to prevent those dreaded raccoon eyes. No need to hold back those tears now.
When it is time to cap the night, you can reach for your trusty makeup remover. But throughout the day, you can be sure that sweat, tears, and oily skin cannot ruin your lashes.
