It’s a sad fact that many Asians tend to have shorter, straighter and thinner lashes, which is why we can’ live without our mascara. The only problem is, too much mascara use can damage lashes, causing them to fall out and become even sparser than they already are.

We recently tried a new regimen from Browhaus which helps to grow, protect and amplify lashes. After just a few weeks, we noticed our lashes looked fuller, longer and felt stronger. Here, we break down this simple – yet effect – three-step ritual.

1. Grow

The Browhaus Extend Lash & Brow Serum ($95.23) is a dual-performance serum that helps you achieve longer, thicker eyelashes and fuller brows in just two weeks. Packed with active ingredients such as Protein Peptides, Pro Vitamin B5, Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate, this serum is perfect for lengthening brittle, short, fragile, thin or sparse lashes and brow hair. The formula is also non-sticky and non-irritating, making it safe for use on the eye area.

To use, just apply a thin line to the base of lash line once a day after cleansing. Allow product to dry for several minutes before continuing your normal skincare regimen. You can use it daily for about weeks, before reducing to about two to three times a week to maintain results.

 

2. Protect

If you apply mascara daily, never skip on crimping or frequently perm your lashes, then they definitely need more TLC. One way is to apply a leave-in conditioner to moisturise lashes and give them that added boost of protection.

The Browhaus Undercoat Lash and Brow Conditioner ($65) contains a nourishing blend of silk, collagen and vitamin B which helps to protect and restore dry and damaged lashes, and it also doubles up a great base to prep your lashes before mascara application.

You can apply it on lashes once every morning and night, and it can even double up as a mascara base. For a more intensive treatment, spread a generous coat over lashes and leave it on overnight.

 

3. Amplify

As we’ve mentioned before, we can’t live without our mascara. But it’s also important to use one that nourishes your lashes even as it boosts volume and length. The Browhaus HD Lengthening Mascara ($22.90) gives you all day long-lasting curl and definition with no clump.

It has a dual-sided wand with a long fine comb on one side to help lengthen your top lashes, and a shorter comb with tiny brushes on the other side to coat bottom lashes. Waterproof, flake-proof and smudge- proof, this rose-scented mascara also contains beeswax to moisturise dry lashes.
