Long, luscious lashes seems to be what all we women (and some men!) covet. Unfortunately not all of us are blessed with Kardashian-esque eyelashes, and let's be real: falsies and extensions are kind of a pain. So what's a beauty lover to do?
Sure, Lucy Hale has taught us an incredibly simple way to apply fake lashes (thanks girl!), but Huda Beauty's trick is for the girl who wants to go the natural route.
To get the voluminious look, you'll need three things: mascara, a spoolie (or the end of an eyebrow pencil will work) and a cotton ball.
Yes, a cotton ball.
Before applying her mascara, Huda coats her lashes with an eyelash conditioner, which she says keeps her lashes looking healthy and hydrated. She then coats her lashes with one coat of mascara.
And now for the fun part.
Opening up her cotton ball to get the cotton fluffy, the beauty guru, with an Instagram following of 11.7 million, then takes her spoolie and gathers a few pieces of the cotton (which you want to let loosen up so they stick to your eyelashes). She then brushes the cotton through her eyelashes and finishes it off by giving her eyes one last coat of mascara so no cotton gets in her eyes. If you want a more dramatic look, repeat the steps.
And there you have it!
As you can see, Huda's left eyelashes are lifted and incredibly long in comparison to the one coat of mascara worn on her right eye.
Who knew cotton balls could be this magical?
