8 Tips To The Longest Lashes Ever
1. Use a primer

Applying a coat of primer first will help create the illusion of thicker fuller lashes and will give your mascara something extra to grab hold of.
2. Choose Your Wand
A small fine wand is ideal to help build longer lashes. It is easier to get to the base of the lash and pull through and extend the lash

A fat, fluffy wand is for fuller, fluffier lashes. If you’re going for a fuller lash look, put on several coats to really build the lashes.

3. Throw out old mascara.
You’ll never get full, lush looking lashes with an old dried out mascara
4. Work your technique.
Starting at the base of the lash, pull your mascara wand through the lash using a side to side motion. Go back through the lashes this time rolling the wand to create more intensity.
5. Don’t pump the wand!
Don’t pump the wand in and out of the tube! This won’t put any extra product onto the wand, but instead will push air into the tube and dry your mascara out much more quickly.
6. Line the upper inner rim or the eye.

For a fuller, bolder looking lash line apply a waterproof liner to the upper lid’s inner rim before applying mascara.

Then smudge a thin line of liner into the base of the lashes and lash line. This will create the illusion of thicker lashes.
7. Create a fan of lashes on the upper lid.
Direct the outer third of your lashes toward you temple, the center third up and forward, the inner third toward your nose. This trick will make your lashes look drastically fuller and longer!
