DIY Lash Extensions

I learned this trick a while back now and decided that more people should know about it so I wanted to write a post.  

So I'm just going to jump right into this and tell you what you need to get DIY lash extensions on a budget.

First of all, you'll need cotton buds, baby powder and of course some mascara. 

Start off with a layer of mascara on your lashes.

Pour some baby powder onto a bit of paper or kitchen roll, then take a cotton bud and roll it in the powder. 

Next, you are simple going to brush the cotton bud onto your eyelashes exactly how you would apply mascara. 

The cotton will come off in strands, attaching to the ends of your lashes and therefore elongating them. The baby powder gives a bit of strength to the cotton and also shows up white against your lashes so you don't miss any cotton strands with your mascara.

That leads us to the next and final step. Apply some mascara, taking extra care ensuring all of the cotton fibres are coated and you can no longer see the white baby powder. 

And you're good to go! Now go flutter those lashes.
