A volumising mascara (& a lash primer)
Curl your lashes to open up the eye area, then brush on a primer. This not only protects and conditions your lashes, but also prolongs the wear of your mascara. “Although brands differ, most lash primers offer benefits such as volumising, lengthening, colour adhesion, separation and longer wear,” says Burford. Try Estée Lauder Lash Primer Plus Full Treatment Formula ($36; 1800 061 326). A volumising mascara with a large full-bristled brush, such as Dior Diorshow Mascara ($52; 02-9695 4800), brings fullness to short or sparse lashes. If your lashes need a little nurturing, try L’Oréal Paris Double Extension Renewal Serum Inside Mascara ($28.45; 1300 659 359). To boost lash growth, apply the serum daily, then slick on the mascara topcoat for extra length.
