How Do You Make Your Eyelashes Look Longer?

To make your eyelashes look longer, curl them, tightline your eyes with black eyeliner and apply two coats of lengthening mascara. This 10-minute procedure requires a mirror, an eyelash curler, lengthening mascara and a waterproof felt-tip eyeliner pen.

  1. Curl your upper eyelashes

    Open the curler, place the lower plate against your upper lash line, and squeeze it for 10 seconds. Move the curler to the middle of your lashes, squeeze it for 10 seconds, then curl the tips of your lashes the same way. Repeat with the other eye.

  2. Tightline your upper lashes

    Place the tip of the felt-tip eyeliner pen on your lash line, and dab the skin between the lashes. Do not draw a line above the lashes. Instead, concentrate on the skin between them. Do this until your entire lash line is black, then tightline your other eye.

  3. Apply curling mascara

    Open the mascara tube, pull out the wand, and wipe off excess product on the lip of the tube. Place the wand at the base of your upper lashes, and wiggle it from side to side as you pull it out to the tips. Apply one coat to each eye, wait one minute, and apply a second coat.

  4. Define the lower lashes

    Open your eyes wide, and apply one coat of mascara to your bottom lashes. Concentrate on the outer third of your lower lash line.
