If you want extra-long lashes, you need to use eyelash primer. Find out what lash primer is and why you need to use it.
There is no such thing as having too long eyelashes. If you find that your regular mascara isn’t giving you the long, fluttery lashes that you desire, an eyelash primer will help boost your mascara’s lengthening powers. Eyelash primers are sometimes referred to as “mascara primers” or “lash enhancers,” and all of the names are pretty self-explanatory about what they do–they help you achieve longer and thicker lashes. Think of a lash primer as the base coat for your mascara. Eyelash primers are sold individually or as part of a “lash system” with a mascara. The majority are white and are covered up when you apply your traditional mascara.
Why You Should Use It
If you want longer lashes without the annoyance of applying fake lashes, a lash primer is your go-to product.
Using an eyelash primer is exactly the same as applying your regular mascara. It’s just like putting on multiple coats of mascara with different products. You apply your primer to your lashes before your mascara. Coat your lashes evenly, ensuring that there are no clumps. Then, while it is still wet, go over it with your ordinary mascara, making sure that you cover the primer if it is tinted white. That’s it.
