You might have self-diagnosed your lashes as short, without taking the time to really study what Mother Nature has given you. But let's take a closer look together in order to find the best mascara for short lashes...
Hold a mirror in front of your face and turn your head slightly so that you can see your profile and, more importantly, your eyelashes. Do they curl upwards or grow out in a more horizontal direction? It may be that your lashes aren't short, but actually straight, which gives the impression have less length. An eyelash curler can help give you those beautiful curved lashes that Parisian women are known for, followed by Lancôme's Grandiôse mascara, whose elastomeric brush lifts and separates lashes, coating each one in a smooth coat of mascara from root to tip.
Now, turn your face to the mirror and lift your chin - still looking at the mirror - so that your eyes are naturally semi-closed. Study the distribution of your lashes along the eyelash line. If your lashes don't grow in even amounts, but in sparse clumps, they'll look shorter than they really are. Not to worry though, the Hypnôse mascara is formulated to add volume and length to each individual lash without weighing them down, so you can choose your preferred level of volume.
Not straight? Not short? Turn your face back to the original position, slightly angled so you can both see into the mirror and see your profile. Look at the length of your natural lashes: short lashes do not extend far from the lash line, tapering off a few millimeters from the skin.
Have you found your diagnosis? You're in luck: Lancôme's experts know some tricks of the trade, as well as the best mascara for short lashes...
Wondering which is the best mascara for short lashes? You're in the right place. The variety of mascaras available might seem overwhelming, but if you have short eyelashes, focus on mascaras specifically formulated as "lengthening". Lancôme's Grandiôse mascara, for example, has a swan neck wand angled at 25° from its axe, enabling optimal application for maximum length and volume. To make each lash stand out with perfect coverage from root to tip, the Définicils mascara has a small brush head to help lash separation and prevent clumps which can make lashes look stubby.
Make the most of the best mascara for short lashes and ensure you've the longest lashes in town by putting these dos and don'ts on your beauty checklist!
By adding layer after layer of mascara, you'll cause clumping and actually end up making the lashes look stubby, the opposite of what you're after... Think effortless French beauty!
Ensure you use a gentle make-up remover such as Bi-Facil - or Effacil for particularly sensitive eyes - every evening to encourage optimal growth and healthy lashes.
By scrubbing at your eyes too roughly when removing make-up, you risk breaking the lashes. Gently does it. Go forth, feel beautiful, and love your eyelashes, whether they're long or short!
