Fibre mascaras, like L’Oréal Paris False Lash X Fiber Mascara, are the easiest way to fake the false eyelash look while still looking natural.
With a simple application technique, you can give your lashes a high impact look in seconds – with the strong staying power of true falsies. If that didn’t convince you that fibre is the way forward, read on to discover how it’ll lengthen your lashes.
What exactly is a fibre mascara?
The difference between a standard mascara and a fibre one is the formulation. Fibre mascaras contain tiny synthetic fibre that can be brushed onto your lashes for maximum length and volume.
Like L’Oréal Paris False Lash X Fiber Mascara, most fibre mascaras use a two-step process to create a full-on false lash effect: a base coat for priming, followed by a coat of fibrous mascara. The base coat helps add length to and darken the lashes, while also giving the fibres something to stick to. Then, how to apply the fibre mascara is your call. Apply one coat for a more natural look, or multiple coats for maximum impact and an extreme false lash look.
Why should you use a fibre mascara?
So why should fibre mascara be an essential for your makeup bag? L’Oréal Paris False Lash X Fiber Mascara is as convenient as it gets. It pairs head-turning, long lashes with an application that’s easier than faking it. And now new L’Oréal Paris False Lash X Fiber Xtreme Resist gives you a waterproof, sweat-proof formula that lasts for up to 24-hours. So now you can get that extreme false lash look at the gym, by the pool, in the rain or in a nightclub at 3am!
Perfect for all day wear, this heavy-hitting fibre mascara can take you from desk to dancefloor without weighing you down.
How to apply a fibre mascara
It’s always a good idea to cleanse your face in the morning to avoid the unwanted smudging from the night before. So, before applying a fibre mascara for the first time, give your face a rinse to ensure uber-clean lashes for a smooth application.
Step 2 – Curl your lashes
Part of the impact of false lashes comes from the curl. Position your favourite eyelash curler at the base of your eyelashes – with your lashes between the clamps – and press down. (Be careful not to pinch your eyelid!) Count to three and repeat the process at the middle and tips of your lashes.
Step 3 – Apply lash primer
Lash primer is essential for achieving dreamy, long-lasting lashes. Begin at the base of your lashes, then carefully brush for even application from root to tip. X Fiber Mascara and X Fiber Xtreme Resist Mascara have built-in primers but new X Fiber Xtreme Resist has fibres in the primer for even more length!
Step 4 – Coat with fibres
Here’s where the real magic happens. Use the same brush technique to apply fibre mascara along the full length of your lash. The key is to follow this motion on the top and undersides to ensure clump-free length and volume in no time at all. Repeat multiple times for added drama.
Tip: For extreme volume, press an additional coat of fibres into the lashes rather than combing them through. This way, they really stick.
