Reach for the curler

It will help lift the root, opening up your eyes, and make your lashes look longer. Opt for a heated lash curler, which will help the hairs stay curled all day. Just don’t clamp down too hard or you’ll end up with a severe bend.

Apply primer

Yes, it’s an extra step, but it makes all the difference. A primer coats the lashes and helps mascara cling to them, giving you a more dramatic effect that will last far longer than mascara applied on bare lashes.

Line ’em

Lashes are thin, you can fake fullness with eye shadow. “I like to use an angled brush dipped in a dark shade and push it right into the lash line,” says makeup artist Lusine Galadjian, who has worked with Victoria Justice and Ashley Greene. Don’t worry about creating a perfect line—it’s supposed to look natural.

Swipe right

The darker the mascara, the better. Galadjian chooses tubes labeled “thickening,” “nonflaky,” or “volume,” a sign that the formula is the right consistency. Try: a different brush The tapered wand has a variety of bristles that grab every lash and create a full fan effect.

Be bright-eyed

 Apply mascara to both the top and bottom lashes. Then, for a final coat, wiggle the wand horizontally at the base of lashes, then sweep up and forward. You’ll get volume at the roots without having to glop on too many coats.

Separate lashes

To prevent spider lashes, use a separator like MUA Lash Separator. Run it through lashes post-mascara application to separate hairs that may have stuck together.
