Lashes, lashes, lashes! We're all obsessed with making our lashes look longer, thicker and more fabulous. TikTok recently created another beauty hack that's taking the internet by storm: mixing Aquaphor balm with mascara to create the most beautiful lashes you've ever seen. It's like a lash lift but without the need to go to the salon! Are you ready to give it a try?

Aquaphor is the holy grail of multipurpose balms. If you've got dry lips, cuticles or feet, Aquaphor is the solution to all your problems. But did you know it's also awesome for your makeup routine? Beauty enthusiast Marnee Dowell shared a video on TikTok showing how to mix Aquaphor and mascara, and it went viral with over 2.5 million views (and still counting!). So, how does it work? Squeeze a little Aquaphor onto your fingertips, add a bit of mascara next to it, and then rub your fingers together. Then, use your fingertip like a mascara wand to apply the mixture to your lashes. And there you have it! You'll have long, thick and glossy lashes that look natural and beautiful.

Some users have raised concerns about the potential for smudging or flaking, so it's important to be careful when using the mixture. Experts also caution against mixing beauty products around the delicate eye area. While Aquaphor is safe to use around the eyes, it's important to make sure your lashes are clean and dry before applying it. While the Aquaphor and mascara hack is not a substitute for lash growth products, it can help moisturize dry and brittle lashes. Plus, it's easy to remove at night, and won't damage your lashes in the long run! We decided to give it a try ourselves using the Max Factor Masterpiece 2 In 1 Lash WOW Volume & Length Mascara and a tiny dot of Aquaphor balm. The result? We were surprised to see our lashes looking incredible!

Instead of appearing coated in product like usual, they were super glossy, making it seem like we had gotten a lash lift and tint at a salon. However, it's important to note that it gets messy quite quickly, so be extra careful while applying it. So what are you waiting for? Give it a try and let us know how it worked for you!
