Eyelashes that grow down?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Helloo! :hand:

My eyelashes grow downwards for some strange reason, so when I wear mascara, I have to curl it. But the mascara weighs the lashes down, so the curl'll be gone is a few minutes of putting mascara on. Does anyone have any idea to how I can use mascara and keep my lashes upwards?

Ta! :D

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

I have this same problem. What I have to do is curl them then put mascara on and curl them, then put mascara on again! Sounds like a lot of trouble but this helps mine. HTH!

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

oh i have the same problem, yes i curl them first too. and some mascarras reall wear them down. but the MaxFactor Masterpiece doesnt, also the BeYu Model Mascarra, or just clear gel mascarra. i also curl them not only at the roots, i press along all the lashes (from root to tip, in an opening the door movement) until the end so they get curly. then i put mascarra. but i had to try many first, since most wear the lashes down.

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

I just use waterproof mascara....it's better at holding a curl. I use max factor's 2000 calorie aqualash and it holds a curl for forever. When I used to stay over at my ex's dorm room and live there for the weekend, the mascara lasted that long! even after taking showers if I'm careful to avoid my face.

Hi,

Also make sure you apply the mascara from the back/outside of the lashes in an upward motion.

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

Thanks for the tips! I use masterpiece mascara, and it's one of the better ones that i've tried, it doesn't weigh my lashees down as much. I'll try the waterproof mascara and the hairdrying thing next weekend! :D

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

I used to have this problem! It sucks! It still happens from time to time, and I even have them grow straight out too! I've learned by using a spoolie daily helps. Also, I use the spoolie before applying my mascara primer, then I curl, and then apply mascara. For me, CG Lash Exact (or Volume LE) works the best.

i agree. use a curler, then apply on a curling mascara!

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

Some mascaras work better than others, but usually waterproof versions hold curls better. Also, heat the lashcurler up with your blowdryer, so it's just warm enough to safely touch your skin and curl a couple of times, moving up the lash.

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

I have the same problem.... i noticed for the past year that the lashes on one eye grow straight down. Have you had any replies to your post???

I thought at first it was because i sleep on my face and that side of my face is down on the pillow. but not sure. I do not wear mascara anymore cause it looks as if I forgot to put mascara on one eye.

Does anyone have a clue as to what causes this?????

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

Genetics most likely.... My grandmother actually had eye lashes that would grow backwards towards her eyes and had to be cut out.... I'd try using an eyelash conditioner and then use maybe a heated eyelash curler every day and train them to stay curled even if you don't use mascara.. or wear a clear mascara to hold the curl?

Re: Eyelashes that grow down?

I've had the same problem, and I've had surgeries on both my upper and lower lids to correct it partially. (My lashes were actually growing at an angle so far down that my eyeballs were getting scratches from them whenever I blinked.)

My lashes still kind of grow downish, but now it's down and out at an angle, instead of down and in.

I'll tell you one thing...I've NEVER come across a non-waterproof mascara that will work for me.

Even if I spend 10 minutes curling my lashes, if I use a regular mascara, my lashes will unbend and be straight down and out again.

Waterproof mascaras help a lot.

I'm still interested in trying out heated curlers (haven't tried one yet).

The ones I use are max factor lash perfection (sometimes lash perfection volume couture) waterproof and cover girl lash exact waterproof. I haven't tried the high end ones so I don't have any self-tested suggestions for those.

I unfortunately have the same issue and I was very insecure about them until I started using an eyelash curler about 3-4 years ago. I hardly ever use mascara, because as you said, it weighs my eyelashes down. I just curl them until they''re curly enough and skip the mascara. They are still prominent without it and many of my friends have actually told me that they thought I used mascara. However, for special occasions, I do use mascara. My aunt is a makeup artist, so she told me to apply mascara downwards, before I curl my eyelashes. After I curl my eyelashes, I apply 2 coats of mascara and comb them upwards with an eyelash comb. If my eyelashes are a little weighed down, I wait for the mascara to dry and then I curl them again. Also, you can try spraying hairspray on your eyelash curler before you curl your eyelashes or heat your eyelash curler with a blow dryer (just make sure that it is cool enough first, before you put it near your eye). Hope I've helped! :)
