    1. Condition your lashes

    By applying cold-pressed unrefined oil such as marula or castor oil from the roots to tips, you thereby strengthen your eyelashes. Both marula and castor oil hydrate the lashes, but notably castor oil helps lashes grow longer. Use a clean finger to coat the lashes with the oils or use a spoolie brush into the oil and swipe. Do whatever works for you and is best for you.

    2. Use a lash growth serum

    The average lash growth cycles last from 30 to 60 days. If lashes are dry and fragile, then lashes can fall out prematurely. Using RevitaLash or GrandeLeash-MD, noted growth serums, help prevent both breakage and brittleness.

      3. Take a type of B-vitamin known as Biotin

      Biotin helps promote strong hair, skin, and nails. Talking to your doctor, if you are curious, can be the quick fix for you. Vitamins are crucial for all parts to the body. So, why is the eyelashes an exception? There is not. So, start taking vitamins for eyelashes as well. They can help you do wonders with them. That is the truth.

      4. Before applying mascara, curl your lashes

      When applying mascara, if you curl your lashes after doing so, there is a great risk that you can get your lashes stuck to the curler. Hereby, your lashes get pulled out after you release the curler. Additionally, if you do not properly clean out the mascara you use at night, and try curling the lashes next morning, your lashes become dry and brittle. Your lashes as a result can break if you try to curl them. Curling your eyelashes when clean and free of make up is the best option for you.

        5. Use a blow-dryer to heat curler

        Using a blow-dryer to heat helps the eyelashes curl easily and makes the shape hold for a longer period of time. Blowing warm air onto the curler directly using the blow dryer is the first step to take. Next, you have to wait until it cools slightly and curl your lashes. This is a trick as if you would curl your hair with a curling iron.

          6. Rotate the curler

          Rotating the curler gives an intense look. Rotating the angle of the curler also gives you a big curl. You can do this by clamping the lashes at the base, pressing the curling, and holding the lashes for a few seconds.

          7. Do not pump more than twice

          Pumping your lash curler more than two times is not beneficial to your eyelashes. It is said that doing this can make them look indented and crippled as opposed to “curled.”

          8. Use a moisturizing mascara

          Lashes are hydrated when you use a moisturizer that keeps your mascara fully hydrated. Trying Rodial GlamoLash Mascara XXL is great for starting. It just might be the trick to get the perfect eyelashes that you have been waiting for since such a long time! Try and see for it. You will see the difference sooner or later.

          The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

          The Best Way to Create a Vision for the Life You Want

          Creating a vision for your life might seem like a frivolous, fantastical waste of time, but it’s not: creating a compelling vision of the life you want is actually one of the most effective strategies for achieving the life of your dreams. Perhaps the best way to look at the concept of a life vision is as a compass to help guide you to take the best actions and make the right choices that help propel you toward your best life.

          your vision of where or who you want to be is the greatest asset you have

            Why You Need a Vision

            Experts and life success stories support the idea that with a vision in mind, you are more likely to succeed far beyond what you could otherwise achieve without a clear vision. Think of crafting your life vision as mapping a path to your personal and professional dreams. Life satisfaction and personal happiness are within reach. The harsh reality is that if you don’t develop your own vision, you’ll allow other people and circumstances to direct the course of your life.

            How to Create Your Life Vision

            Don’t expect a clear and well-defined vision overnight—envisioning your life and determining the course you will follow requires time, and reflection. You need to cultivate vision and perspective, and you also need to apply logic and planning for the practical application of your vision. Your best vision blossoms from your dreams, hopes, and aspirations. It will resonate with your values and ideals, and will generate energy and enthusiasm to help strengthen your commitment to explore the possibilities of your life.

            What Do You Want?

            The question sounds deceptively simple, but it’s often the most difficult to answer. Allowing yourself to explore your deepest desires can be very frightening. You may also not think you have the time to consider something as fanciful as what you want out of life, but it’s important to remind yourself that a life of fulfillment does not usually happen by chance, but by design.

            It’s helpful to ask some thought-provoking questions to help you discover the possibilities of what you want out of life. Consider every aspect of your life, personal and professional, tangible and intangible. Contemplate all the important areas, family and friends, career and success, health and quality of life, spiritual connection and personal growth, and don’t forget about fun and enjoyment.

            Advertising

            Some tips to guide you:

            • Remember to ask why you want certain things
            • Think about what you want, not on what you don’t want.
            • Give yourself permission to dream.
            • Be creative. Consider ideas that you never thought possible.
            • Focus on your wishes, not what others expect of you.

            Some questions to start your exploration:

            • What really matters to you in life? Not what should matter, what does matter.
            • What would you like to have more of in your life?
            • Set aside money for a moment; what do you want in your career?
            • What are your secret passions and dreams?
            • What would bring more joy and happiness into your life?
            • What do you want your relationships to be like?
            • What qualities would you like to develop?
            • What are your values? What issues do you care about?
            • What are your talents? What’s special about you?
            • What would you most like to accomplish?
            • What would legacy would you like to leave behind?

            It may be helpful to write your thoughts down in a journal or creative vision board if you’re the creative type. Add your own questions, and ask others what they want out of life. Relax and make this exercise fun. You may want to set your answers aside for a while and come back to them later to see if any have changed or if you have anything to add.

            What Would Your Best Life Look Like?

            Describe your ideal life in detail. Allow yourself to dream and imagine, and create a vivid picture. If you can’t visualize a picture, focus on how your best life would feel. If you find it difficult to envision your life 20 or 30 years from now, start with five years—even a few years into the future will give you a place to start. What you see may surprise you. Set aside preconceived notions. This is your chance to dream and fantasize.

            A few prompts to get you started:

            • What will you have accomplished already?
            • How will you feel about yourself?
            • What kind of people are in your life? How do you feel about them?
            • What does your ideal day look like?
            • Where are you? Where do you live? Think specifics, what city, state, or country, type of community, house or an apartment, style and atmosphere.
            • What would you be doing?
            • Are you with another person, a group of people, or are you by yourself?
            • How are you dressed?
            • What’s your state of mind? Happy or sad? Contented or frustrated?
            • What does your physical body look like? How do you feel about that?
            • Does your best life make you smile and make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, dig deeper, dream bigger.

            It’s important to focus on the result, or at least a way-point in your life. Don’t think about the process for getting there yet—that’s the next stepGive yourself permission to revisit this vision every day, even if only for a few minutes. Keep your vision alive and in the front of your mind.

            Plan Backwards

            It may sound counter-intuitive to plan backwards rather than forwards, but when you’re planning your life from the end result, it’s often more useful to consider the last step and work your way back to the first. This is actually a valuable and practical strategy for making your vision a reality.

            • What’s the last thing that would’ve had to happen to achieve your best life?
            • What’s the most important choice you would’ve had to make?
            • What would you have needed to learn along the way?
            • What important actions would you have had to take?
            • What beliefs would you have needed to change?
            • What habits or behaviors would you have had to cultivate?
            • What type of support would you have had to enlist?
            • How long will it have taken you to realize your best life?
            • What steps or milestones would you have needed to reach along the way?

            Now it’s time to think about your first step, and the next step after that. Ponder the gap between where you are now and where you want to be in the future. It may seem impossible, but it’s quite achievable if you take it step-by-step.

            It’s important to revisit this vision from time to time. Don’t be surprised if your answers to the questions, your technicolor vision, and the resulting plans change. That can actually be a very good thing; as you change in unforeseeable ways, the best life you envision will change as well. For now, it’s important to use the process, create your vision, and take the first step towards making that vision a reality.
