#DramaticEyes: A Guide To Getting The Best Lash Look Without Using Falsies!

When it comes to having thick, long eyelashes, there are some women who prefer to fake it till they make it. At the end of the day, they land up spending a bomb on faux lashes and extensions. If you just want to amp up your lashes, we got you covered. Whether it’s splurging on quality products or trying out good old home remedies; Here’s how to get longer lashes without extensions. (You’re welcome!)

You should swear by these 3 beauty tricks!

1. Start by adding some dark liner right into your upper lash line

From all the mascara tricks out there, this one is the easiest! The key here is to create an illusion of thicker lashes by darkening your lash line. All you’ve got to do is use a creamy eye pencil and press it right into your lash line. Don’t forget to smudge it after.
