Do you know what time it is? It’s time for another beauty trend. Don’t worry, we’re not asking you to apply layers of foundation and concealer or share eye makeup hacks. In fact, you won’t need a lot of products to achieve the manga lash effect. Are you wondering what type of eyelashes it is? Allow us to guide you. In Japanese comics, you will come across many characters with eyelashes that tend to grow in pointed clusters. The lashes are spaced along the upper and lower lash lines creating a spiky look. The manga lashes beauty trend is inspired by this look.
How to create manga eyelashes to pull off this beauty trend
Well, you don’t need to add a strip of eyelashes to your eyes. To achieve the effect of manga eyelashes at home, you need to carefully space the clusters or individual eyelashes.
Here is a step by step process:
Start by applying a small amount of eyeshadow base to the lids. This will ensure that the product is where it should be. It will also prevent mascara from wiping onto your eyelids and cheeks.
Since manga-inspired lashes are super visible, you’ll want to avoid dramatic or dark eye makeup. Opt for a thin eyeliner [preferabley, black] and apply it near your eyelid. You can even apply white eyeshadow.
Now curl your lashes, from root to tip, squeezing 3 times at each level. Apply the mascara by starting by stirring deeply from the root to the tip of your lashes. Use 2-3 thick coats of mascara to really get the manga look.
If you experience clumping on the lashes due to heavy mascara coating, use a mascara wand to wipe off excess residue. This will separate the lashes and define each individual lash.
Voila, your manga lashes are ready!
