What Is a Lash Primer—And Why You Need One Stat

Looking to amp up your lashes but not quite sure how? We know the feeling when your trusty mascara leaves you with a not-so-cute blink time and time again. Don’t fret though—there’s a foolproof solution for that, and it goes by the name of a lash primer. If you don’t have one already, it’s time to toss one into your makeup assemblage—stat.

Why, exactly? These primers are the answer to taking your dull lashes to the next level. Not only do they fully prep the lashes for mascara application, but they create a bond for the mascara which results in extended wear. In addition, when paired with your favorite mascara formula, lash primers extend lashes giving you a fuller, more voluminous wink. Last but not least, primers work to condition and moisturize your driest lashes to prevent and breakage. Shop our tried-and-true formulas below for an eye game that will be irresistibly gorgeous.
