The new year is a time for change, and often the time we try to shake bad habits and focus on a new, more positive outlook for the year ahead. And while our bad habits come in all shapes and sizes, if there’s something to ditch in your beauty routine come the new year it’s definitely bad lash habits!
So many people don’t realise that long, luscious, voluminous natural lashes are possible (yes - without falsies!) as long as we embrace better habits and treat out lashes with some TLC.
So when the clock strikes twelve come 31 December (or any time of year, for the matter) here are 5 resolutions you can embrace for the ultimate lash look in the new year.
1) Cut down on falsies
Before you click away, trust me when I say that even though you might love your false lash look, the synthetic glues used to apply these lashes are only wreaking havoc on your lashes. They dry out your natural lash causing premature breakage, not to mention premature lash fall when removing your falsies at the end of the night.
2) Stop using waterproof mascara
Waterproof mascara may look great at the pool, but it’s a big no-no when it comes to natural lash care. Your lashes need moisture in order to thrive and grow to maturity, but waterproof mascara dries out your lashes causing them to break and fall prematurely. If you must use mascara, opt for a non-toxic, cruelty-free brand that is non-water-proof to protect your lashes.
3) Stop leaving your makeup on when you go to bed
If ever there was a cardinal sin of lash care, this is most certainly it. Forgetting to take your makeup off at night, particularly your eye makeup, causes your lashes to lose moisture and, again, break and fall. Mascara is the number one culprit here, clumping together and causing multiple lashes to fall out at a time.
4) Choose sustainable brands
This one can be applied to all your beauty habits - and if you only take one thing from this week’s post then let it be this: buy sustainably. The green beauty revolution is taking the world by storm, and choosing sustainable beauty products is the best choice for your health and the health of the planet. Always opt for non-toxic cosmetics made from all-natural ingredients.

5) Invest in a high-quality lash serum
When it comes to healthy natural lashes, lash serum is your BFF. It works by strengthening your natural lash from root to tip, preventing lash breakage and lash fall. This means that your lashes can grow to their fullest potential, resulting in a full, thick and long set of beautiful lashes. Ensure your lash serum is cruelty-free, non-toxic and dermatologist tested for best results.
EVEDARE Eyelash Serum is an amazing choice! Made from all-natural plant extracts and contains no harmful chemicals or growth hormones, you can safely use this lash serum without any side effects. And best of all we guarantee results within four weeks or we’ll give you a full refund.
Cheers to the new year and your new lashes!
Lots of love
