What if my lashes are too short?

Some lucky people are born with the most amazing long lashes, but they’re the minority! Most of us often worry that our lashes are too short, too small, too thin... and a few short google searches later you suddenly find yourself smearing cream cheese along your lash line because someone has just promised you that it’s the latest ‘results guaranteed, definitely works’ way to get longer lashes. 

If that sounds all too familiar, then this blog is for you! Here, we’re going to tell you exactly what to do if you feel like your lashes are too short, thin or small. Most importantly, we’re going to help you tell the difference between what works and what doesn’t, so that you get the results you actually want. 

Here we go...

What’s the average lash length

My lashes are too short: what are my options? 

If you think your lashes look too short, thin or small, then there are a number of things you can do. 

1) Extensions

When you ask for extensions, a specially trained technician will apply a number of semi-permanent fibres to the tips of your natural lashes using a glue.  


  • Instantly visible results, short lashes are made longer 
  • Work for six weeks 


  • Applying extensions takes skill and if they’re not done properly, they can damage your natural lashes. 
  • Extensions are expensive 
  • Extensions are difficult to remove 

2) Magnetic Lashes

Magnetic lashes are falsies which are held in place by magnets along the lash band 


  • False lashes instantly boost short, thin or small lashes 
  • Can be re-used multiple times 


  • Heavy magnets can drag down your natural lash roots 
  • Magnetic eyeliner contains iron oxide which can provoke a reaction in people with sensitive skin. 

3) Adhesive Lashes

The best way of applying falsies, adhesive lashes are false lashes that come with an adhesive liner which holds the lashes in place with ease.


  • Immediately adds length and volume to short, thin or small lashes
  • Applied in seconds, no drying time required
  • Can be re-used multiple times


  • If you are looking for a falsie, these are the absolute best option for instant results. But there’s also a natural way....
