The Perfect Eyelash Trio

Having long, beautifully curled lashes is such a confidence booster for me and I’ve always been trying to find the perfect products to help me get that look. And the big news is I finally did it - I found the perfect trio that not only makes my lashes big and voluminous but also helps them stay curled and clump-free throughout the day! Starting off my eyelash routine, I always curl my lashes, using my trusty Shu Uemera Eyelash Curler (here). This baby works absolute wonders, especially for someone like me who has long, yet straight lashes. It really gets into the root of the lash creating the perfect natural curl that last hours and hours. The shape of the silicone pad is ideal for everyone and gives elongated sweeping curl instead of the not-so-cute harsh crimped look. Being the crème de la crème of the eyelash curlers, this one by She Uemura is an essential and if your lashes need some prepping and extra hold like mine do – this gem’s a must.

Now that my lashes are curled and pretty there come the exciting part – using eyelash serum. And if you’re not familiar with the concept don’t worry – I recently heard of it myself but since I got a sample of the Dior Diorshow Maximizier Lash Plumping Serum (here) I never looked back. This is the product that takes my mascara game one step further and it makes the biggest difference. The Maximiser could be used both as mascara primer and as overnight treatment to condition and strengthen them. I haven’t been using this beauty long enough to comment on its nourishing properties but let me tell you – as a primer it’s a complete game changer. It creates the perfect smooth and even base for my mascara and it glides on like a dream. The fast-drying Maximizer also separates and lengthens the lashes beautifully, adding more volume and definition, without any clumps – incredible! Say goodbye to the short, thin lashes – this stuff sorts them out in seconds!

Well any eyelash talk wouldn’t be complete without raving about my favorite mascara at the moment, would it? Meet my latest mascara obsession in the form of the ever-so-lovely YSL Shocking Mascara (here). Fancy having long, perfectly separated, deep black, voluminous lashes that hold curl for the whole day and doesn’t clump or smudge? Well you’ve come to the right place because this baby gives it all in just one swipe! The list could go on really, but this mascara works absolute wonders and in conjunction with the Dior serum – the results are downright brilliant. I’m all about the more dramatic eyelashes and this YSL mascara ticks all the boxes for me, so if you’re on a hunt for a new eyelash companion – jump on the bandwagon!

Have you ever used any of these products before? How do you like them? How do you achieve the perfect eyelash look?

Lots of love,


  1. Love the sound of the serum, it looks like it works really well! x

  2. I've always been skeptical of eyelash primers & serums but this one seems to work well enough and since it's Dior you know the name/ the price must justify the mean.

  3. I use the Plumping Serum in summer instead of a mascara because my lids get very oily, especially when it's hot outside and I don't want to look like a mess haha

  4. I haven't tried any of these products but I'm on the hunt for products to make my lashes look amazing, great recommendations!


  5. Liking the sound of the plumping serum x

  6. I only hear good things about the YSL Shocking mascara, it sounds like a must try!! I'm normally a quick curl and swipe of mascara girl but adding a serum in there too is really tempting me! X
