Splurge a little on products that are designed to make your eyes pop.
According to Real Simple’s Beauty Director Didi Gluck, every woman should own Kevin Aucoin’s eyelash curler and mascara. The red rubber pad on the curler is gentle on lashes, and doesn’t stick to them when curling. As for the mascara, it elongates, curls, and separates. Another plus: the formula doesn’t build up around the neck of the tube so it’s not difficult to open—and it won’t make a mess of your make-up bag.
