How to max your lashes

We all want long gorgeous lashes, but few of use are blessed with Bambi lashes. Luckily for us there are a host of ways with which we can give them a boost.

  1. Primer. The most obvious option is to use a seriously Volumizing mascara. But to get even more bang from your fave mascara, try using a lash primer first. Revitalash Volumizing Primer, R195 is the new kid on the block that you can buy here. Estee Lauder also has one; Lash Primer Plus, R215.
  2. Mascara. Chances are you already have volumizing mascara in your make-up kit already. Apply it in a zigzag motion from the root toward the tip. Clarins Wonder Volume Mascara, R235 and Rimmel Scandal’Eyes Mascara, R89.95 are my all-time favourites.
  3. If you are really lacking in the lash department, you could use a lash renewal serum. These contain clever proteins and vitamins that help your hairs grow in 4-8 weeks (they also work on eye brows). Ilove RapidLash, R750. It’s tried and trusted by the beauty industry, and you can get it here.
  4. Of you could opt to ignore the mascara, serum and primer, and just fake it with a set of extensions. Search for a salon near you here or I swear by Eye Candy. You’ll find them in Woolies at Eastgate, Cavendish, VnA and at 99c Kloof Street in Cape Town.
