Curling your lashes helps them stay fluttery all day. Carefully clamp them at the base with an eye-lash curler (we like Tweezerman ProCurl Lash Curler) and hold for 30 seconds while gently tilting your wrist upward. If you have stubbornly straight lashes, first heat the curler with a blow-dryer for about 10 seconds.
To add oomph, apply a primer. It nourishes lashes to prevent brittleness, lengthens, and amps up volume. Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Primer goes on beige so you can never miss a spot. Tip: Wear the primer on its own as an overnight moisturizing treatment.
Holding the mascara wand horizontally, wiggle the brush at the lash roots and sweep upward to the tips. Repeat. Then hold the wand vertically and use a windshield-wiper motion to separate clumps. L'Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Mascara has a bendable neck to target inner corners.
