1 Buy the Right Curler

2 Curl First

3 Black Mascara Only

Lash primers almost always come in white, so if you do use one, be sure that no white is visible after applying. To make your eyes pop even more, try using a different color like light brown for your bottom lashes. The contrast in color will make them appear fuller.

4 Get a Full Lash Line

Size matters, too. To get lashes that look fake, use the biggest mascara wand you can find. The bigger the wand, the better.

7 Bottom Lash Love

eyebrow, face, eye, eyelash, nose,Don't forget the lashes under your eyes. To prevent smudging, place a napkin or piece of paper under your lashes to create a guard so the mascara won't get on your skin. You can also do this for your top lashes as well.

8 Water Resistant is a Must

But, use it sparingly--constantly wearing waterproof requires more rubbing to remove, which is bad for your lashes. Stick with regular mascara the majority of the time, and waterproof for when you're outdoors. Problem solved!

9 Extensions

Extensions are perfect for occasional use for formal, dressy occasions. They're a must for dances, weddings, and holidays, like Halloween!

Don't forget to remove your makeup and moisturize every single day. Petroleum jelly is perfect to put on your lashes before bedtime. If you incorporate these tips into your daily routine, you'll be sure to have the most fabulous lashes!
