Lush, Full Look
At Home: A lash primer is your best friend. It beefs up lashes before mascara goes on. For volume, place the wand at the roots in the center, wiggle the brush horizontally to build body, the pull outward. Next, add a few swipes to the inner corners. If priority is defined length without thickness, focus on the tips. Apply a layer, wait a few seconds, then go in again. Try Estee Lauder Sumptuous Knockout mascara / Revlon ultimate All-In-One mascara.
At the Salon: One alternative to the daily mascara grind is lash extensions. They’re applied by a pro (individual lashes are glued to your own lashes, not your skin). For that long, thick effect everyday, they can make mornings dramatically easier. To make them believable, be specific with your technician that you need various lengths, ask for some to be a millimeter shorter than your real lashes in the center, with outer corners a few millimeters longer.
