Eyelash and Eyebrow Pulling

Tips for Looking Good

Lets look at cover-ups like false lashes and eyelash extensions.

We know you can do it; do you believe in yourself?

A simple cosmetic tip to cover up damage from lash or brow pulling without resorting to clumpy mascara - use a kohl pencil in black, or brown if you have a pale complexion. Make sure your pencil is very sharp, and dot it lightly just slightly above where your eyelashes would be. Another way to do this is with mascara on a very thin lip brush. A sultry look for kohl eyeliner pencil is to run the pencil (not so sharp this time) along the inside top of the eye to conceal the gaps. Finish by blending some brown gently over the brow; kohl is softer than other liners so it looks more natural.

And if you are looking for the best eyelash glue, I find Eye Charm is best, and using dark glue as eyeliner is a great way of being sure fake lashes stay in place.

Covering up can cause complacency with pulling. Sticking things to weak lashes sometimes causes the loss of more lashes. Obviously the ideal way to live with eyelash pulling is to leave them bare, with just a little vaseline, that way you won't be tempted to pick any clumps or pull more because you know you can hide damage with falsies. Being pull free is about more than looking good, it's about having control of your compulsions. There's no quick fix for that, just positivity and perseverance!
