Adorn Cosmetics Mineral Eyelash Primer

If you want fuller, longer looking lashes then it’s time to consider a lash primer, and Adorn offer a great little product in this department. Their lash primer is applied so easily (and that’s coming from someone who HATES applying mascara). It coats the lashes and protects them from your top layer of mascara. I found this product very easy to apply – I simply combed it through my lashes and after letting it dry I applied my regular mascara on top. After applying the lash primer, my mascara had something to cling to. Basically it gripped to the primer instead of my bare lashes which made them look so much fuller! My lashes were separated, long, voluminous and I didn’t experience any clumping when using this product. Win!

Mavala VL Mascara Waterproof Black 

I have quite a contentious relationship with mascara. I find it difficult to apply and I can never seem to achieve the look I’m after. This waterproof offering from Mavala is a great product! Not only does it provide incredible volume and length (without clumps!), it also cares for my lashes with its hydrating, nourishing formula. I found the waterproof formula perfect for my oily skin (no 3pm panda eyes for me!) and it wiped off perfectly with my preferred oil-based makeup remover.

Natio Amplify & Separate Volumising Mascara

I have a love hate relationship with mascara. Of course, I want long, voluminous, separated, beautiful lashes but I absolutely detest applying it. I have never found a mascara that I can trust and commit to. Enter Natio’s Amplify and Seperate Volumising Mascara, otherwise known as ‘The Game Changer’. I love the shape of the wand. It cradled my lashes, mimicking their shape and direction perfectly. I didn’t feel like the wand or formula were fighting against my lashes but instead working with them, enhancing them for the better. After one coat I had separated, long and defined lashes and a huge smile on my face. This is quite possibly my new go-to.
