Floating Lashes as a Beauty Trend 2022: What’s behind it?
From bright eye shadows that you can see from space to bright lipsticks – last year’s beauty trends are undoubtedly guided by the motto "The more, the better". But for the upcoming season, things are looking very different and the minimalist and fresh aesthetic has become the new favorite look of all fashionistas. The term "Floating Lashes" comes from English and means in German something like "floating eyelashes".
The beauty trend has gone viral on the social platform TikTok in recent months and has now received several thousand views. No wonder – floating lashes is all about making our lashes beautifully fluffy, feathery and soft with a very simple trick and in no time at all. The end result? A deliberate, subtle look that looks super classy and chic at the same time.
Get full eyelashes: This is how easy you can achieve the look
Long and full eyelashes have been considered THE beauty ideal for all women for years. The good news is that you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money on overpriced cosmetic treatments and makeup products to achieve this. A suitable mascara and 2 minutes of time – that’s all you need for the Floating Lashes trend. The beauty trend was developed and perfected by a famous TikToker and influencer. In a video, she shows how she first lightly shapes her lashes with a lightly heated eyelash curler and only then covers them with a few coats of waterproof mascara. The key to achieving the perfect look lies primarily in the right mascara, which you then use to give your lashes that curved shape. But that doesn’t mean you should overdo it.
True to the motto "less is more" 1 to 2 layers of mascara are completely sufficient for Floating Lashes. When applying, make sure that the lashes do not clump together or get lost in the mascara – the look should be rather minimalist and subtle. However, if you prefer something more dramatic and daring, you can quietly spice up your eye makeup a little with a cool and eye-catching eyeliner. Whether bright colors or a classic cat eye – just be creative and do not be afraid to experiment with different techniques and looks.
Floating Lashes also work with artificial eyelashes
Whether it’s the latest beauty or food trends – over the past 2 years, TikTok has undoubtedly established itself as the ultimate source of inspiration. Why we love floating lashes? Because we can get the floating and cool look really quickly and easily even with false lashes. To get the illusion of fuller lashes, apply the artificial lashes under your natural lashes. This very simple trick will add volume and fullness in no time and will give your makeup look an unobtrusive yet very elegant touch. After you have applied the artificial lashes, cover them with 1-2 layers of mascara you trust and voilà – Floating Lashes work that easy!
Eyelash lift for more volume
Don’t want to deal with the hassle of applying mascara or false eyelashes every morning? No problem – we have a (semi-)permanent option for you too! Floating Lashes also goes with the currently trendy eyelash lift. The procedure actually gives you the same results as the previous two methods, except you leave the hard work to your beautician. Eyelash lifting acts like a kind of perm for the lashes and makes them look much more voluminous and full in no time. In the process, the lashes are gently lifted upwards with a special serum and a silicone pad, which is available in different sizes. Depending on the growth of the lashes, the effect usually lasts between 6 and 8 weeks.
