This hack will make your synthetic lashes look EXACTLY like mink ones

We’ll definitely be trying it.

From the proper way to clean your beauty blender to the way to make sure you have the perfect nail colour, there’s no shortage of beauty tips and tricks on the internet that will make your daily routine even easier.

But this latest one may just take the cake as our favourite one.

It turns out there’s a way to make your fake lashes look like mink. And, to make it even better, you’ve probably got the tools you need sitting in your makeup bag.

A recent viral video shows a pair of synthetic lashes being turned into “mink-type, ruffled” eyelashes – all using a makeup spoolie.

Paloma Garcia blew the minds of social media users when she shared her hack for making synthetic lashes look mink.

Basically, it involves using a spoolie and brushing out the lashes out.

Just move the brush from the lash band down to the tip, and side-to-side, until you get the ruffled effect to your liking.

The post has gone viral on Facebook, getting more than 26,000 likes and 170,000 shares.

And, as most things do, it soon found its way to Twitter – where people were demonstrating their own attempts at the technique.

Many people were impressed with the tip, calling it a “game changer”.
