3 Easy Steps to Maxed-Out Lashes
Long, full lashes are like rays of light around your eyes—and help you fake a good night's sleep. Get them in three easy moves.
Step 1: Curl Your Lashes
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.

Step 2: Prime Your Lashes
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.

Step 3: Swipe On Mascara
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.
