Baffled by the magnitude of lashes on the models in mascara ads? Your lashes may not get the extreme length and volume of the false lashes that are applied for those pictures, but you can get close if you follow a few steps.
Using a lash curler, clamp at the roots, the center, and tip for 5 seconds each.
The hottest tool in the cosmetics business right now is lash primer serum, which allows you to use less mascara for the same, or greater effect. (Using less mascara means a less-clumpy, more natural look.)
