Your eyes are the window to your soul. With mask wearing sticking around for the foreseeable future, we’re falling back in love with eye makeup. Whether you like a minimalistic look or go all out with a dramatic makeup style, you want to play up your lashes. You don’t have to be blessed with perfect lashes to give the illusion of falsies without committing to them.
There’s something luxurious about having thick, dark lashes. It’s a timeless makeup look that will never go out of style and is universally flattering as it opens up your eyes and draws attention to them – regardless of the rest of your makeup.
We’re looking at how you can create darker, thicker lashes at home and why the lash trend has been all over our TikTok and Instagram feeds. Spoiler alert. Dark and thick lashes are one of the go-to beauty trends of 2022.
Lashes are fun and flirty. While designers tend to go extreme with lashes on the runway, the oversized and dark lash look can be incorporated into your daily makeup routine. Impossibly thick and dark lashes are becoming less like theatre makeup and more like every day looks with every season. As the beauty industry becomes less restrictive about what is ‘normal’ makeup, you can expect this trend to become even more popular.
Your eyelashes are one of the easiest ways to change up your entire look. With just a few swipes of pen or wand, you can instantly transform your look and give it an exotic feel. Lashes are becoming a corner stone in the world of non-binary makeup, meaning that everyone can enjoy the benefits of having darker, thicker eyelashes.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when trying to create the look of dark and thick eyelashes. Being able to apply falsies is a life-defining skill and one that not all of us have mastered yet.
While some people choose to apply glue onto their skin to secure falsies, it’s usually easier to apply a lash adhesive along the band of the false lashes before applying them by hand. The Duo Brush On Striplash Adhesive is amongst the most popular and easiest to use.
If you struggle to get your false lashes into place, never fear. One of the best – and easiest – ways to apply false lashes is by using your tweezers. It gives you a little extra grip, making it easier to line up your falsies for a natural look and to secure them correctly in place. If you want extra peace of mind, use your eyelash curler to help blend your falsies and natural lashes together for a seamless finish to create darker and thicker-looking lashes.
Not everyone is a fan of using false eyelashes – and we get that. Some people – especially those who wear glasses – can find false lashes to be more of a hassle than they’re worth. Mascaras have evolved in recent years to meet the ever-changing beauty norms and give you a false lash look from a tube.
You want to look out for an innovative mascara that has a fluffy brush, allowing you to separate your lashes and lengthen each individual lash to give you a precise look and control over your lashes. If you feel like splurging, La Perla has released their first volumizing mascara that is guaranteed to darken your lashes for a seductive look.
Another trick that you can use to create darker and thicker eyelashes is by using both mascara and false eyelashes. The trick is to apply a base coat of mascara to act as an anchor for your false eyelashes, making them easier to wear and less likely to move throughout the day. This look is easiest to achieve when you use a lightweight mascara that doesn’t clump up your lashes as that can be counterproductive for this look.
Dark, thick eyelashes are the perfect accessory for a night on the town – whether you’re going out on a date or with your girlfriends. Your eyes are the windows to your soul, making your lashes the most important aspect of your makeup look. With masks keeping all the attention on our eye makeup, your lashes are taking a starring role wherever you go.

Changing up your makeup routine doesn’t mean that you have to go outside your comfort zone. Some of the best makeup trends are the ones that do things in reverse. We’re already seeing this style of trend all over social media, including putting your base products on in reverse order. What we love about reverse beauty trends is that they’re not crazy but make a subtle change that can transform your look and give it a chic finish.
One of the biggest trends in beauty right now is neon. It’s neon lights everywhere you look. The resurgence of the beauty trends is in no small part due to the Y2K aesthetic, which is making everyone experiment with colour. It’s no surprise that after almost 18 months of living through a pandemic, that people want to see colour back in their lives. Neon eyeshadow is an easy way to experiment with colour without having to buy a whole new makeup bag.
