The no-makeup makeup girlies are ditching mascara, maybe for all the right reasons. If you want your lashes to batter naturally like Bambi, here are some things to keep in mind (and off your lashes).
No-Mascara Lashes Are In – Here’s How You Can Flaunt A Natural Full-Flutter!

Apparently, there’s a no-mascara look that’s trending. Simply not applying a product is trending these days, but I guess as a makeup-girlie I have to jump onto it. The whole no-mascara thing comes under the umbrella of the no-makeup makeup look that focuses on minimal products (sunscreen, blush, and concealer) with mostly a naked eye. This is also because we all reached a saturation point with an overload of makeup and are going the minimal route, circle of life, am I right?

So, we are here to break down the no-mascara look where you can vaunt your lashes without actually applying gunks of products that harm your lashes in the long run.

How Is This Trend Good

According to a study, your lashes have a life cycle of 4–12 months, during which they grow and fall out. Generally, one can expect to lose seven to eight hair follicles, but people have been experiencing more than that. The main reason we apply mascara is to make your naturally lacking lashes look better.

  1. Poor Beauty Habits
    This is the most common reason for the loss of eyelashes. When you apply too much product around the eyes and don’t clean it before sleeping or resting your eyes, your lashes become weak over time. Overuse of extensions can also weaken your lashes. This weakening causes them to break and slow down their regrowth process as well.

  2. Over-Curling
    Not only do eyelash curlers look daunting, but they can also cause you more harm than good over time. Eyelashes are present around your eyes to protect them from external stressors, but if you pull them back often for aesthetic reasons they will lose their integral stability and fall out with every pull. Using them sparingly is the key.

  3. Rubbing, Scratching & Friction
    Whenever we feel itchy around the eyes, we vigorously scratch and rub our eyelids and lashes. Lashes have a smaller root compared to other hair glands, according to a study, and they tend to break faster with rubbing and friction.

  4. Poor Diet
    When your diet doesn’t consist of enough vitamins and minerals, it makes the oil glands around your hair roots weak, a weaker base leads to weaker hair, and thus more prone to breakage and hair loss.

How To Sport the No-Mascara Look?

  1. Transparent Mascara FTW
    Transparent mascaras give all the volume and none of the artificial after-effects. They add volume to your lashes and don’t clump your hair follicles, giving you a natural look. This goes especially well with the no-makeup makeup look.

  1. Curl Them Naked
    Another great way to flaunt your naked eye is to curl your natural lashes without any extensions or products. This offers a natural-looking lift without the weight of any product. However, make sure you do this without too much tugging or pressure, and avoid using a curler too frequently.
  1. Slow But Grow
    This method may be time-consuming but, in the long run, growing your lashes is always better than depending on extensions and mascaras. There are a plethora of serums and oils that aid the growth of your lashes for that cottage-core look.
