The Secret Behind My Long Lashes (1st Video Tutorial!)

Hello, friends! It seems that this post is long overdue, as I've been getting countless requests about this for awhile now! The above photo is 100% my lashes. You voted on my story last week that you wanted to see my health journey post first, this was a close second. The inspiration for my long lashes came out of pure laziness. I have always loved the look of full lashes but I could not stand the idea of lash extensions (ain't nobody got time for that)! Applying false lashes on myself is also a low-key disaster... I can never get them to lay correctly and sometimes they look overly false. Cue my three step daily routine for the most epic lashes you'll ever have! I've teamed up with my incredibly talented sister, Kristen to make my first ever video! I've included the product details below. This post is NOT sponsored whatsoever, these products are what I use and love every single day. 

Step 1: Use A Curler

I used to be terrified of eyelash curlers because I'd always hear horror stories of people pulling their lashes out. After overcoming this, I decided to try one and it ROCKED my world! I find that the curler does a great job of lifting the lashes, creating a more wide eyed look! Shop the curler here! 

Step 2: Apply tubular mascara

Not all mascaras are equal! I was incredibly skeptical of this mascara when I first tried it, but it has changed the game for me. This revolutionary tubular volumizing mascara forms water-resistant tubes 360° around lashes, dries instantly and will not smudge or smear. Better than waterproof, the 24-hour formula stays just-applied looking yet slides off with only warm water without leaving a trace. The precision brush grabs lashes at the roots to lengthen even the shortest hairs for the look of a naturally lush lash line. Shop my favorite mascara at Nordstrom here or on Amazon here!

Step 3: Swipe the serum

In June 2017 I started looking for a lash solution that would be low maintenance so I could work smarter, not harder towards lengthy lashes! My fabulous friend Nina told me to try RevitaLash after complimenting her gorgeous lashes. I was incredibly skeptical, especially due to the price tag of $99 but she assured me it would last well over three months (my first tube lasted me 6 months) and I would not regret it. RevitaLash Advanced is proven to transform the appearance of lashes and making them stronger. This proprietary blend of scientifically-advanced technology and natural botanicals help protect against breakage and brittleness, improve flexibility, moisture and shine. Here are a few other benefits:

• Defends eyelashes from daily aggressors and conditions to help protect from brittleness and breakage.
• High impact BioPeptin Complex, peptides and botanicals saturate the lashes with moisture, keeping them soft, luxurious and healthy-looking.
• Daily use provides immediate conditioning benefits leading to healthier-looking, more luxurious lashes. 
• Ophthalmologist Reviewed, Dermatologist Reviewed, Clinically Tested, Hypoallergenic, Non-Irritating. 
• My favorite part: a portion of all proceeds benefit breast cancer research initiatives.
