The Best Eyelash Primers for Longer, Fuller LashesFebruary 14, 2023
In our pursuit of long, voluminous lashes, we’ve tried almost everything, from mascaras at every price point to lash lifts, extensions and false eyelashes. But one of the easiest and most underrated ways to step up your lash game is by applying an eyelash primer. There are tinted formulas, which make your lashes appear fuller and darker before you even add mascara, transparent options that add length and base coats that keep your mascara looking freshly applied all day. Below, we share some of the best eyelash primers to add to your routine.
