Max your lashes!

We all want long gorgeous Bambi lashes, and even though few of us are blessed with them, luckily for us there are a host of ways in which we can give them a boost!

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).


Mascara. Chances are you already have volumizing mascara in your makeup kit. 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 our all-time favourites.


If you’re 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). We love RapidLash (R750) – it’s tried and trusted by the beauty industry, and you can get it here.


Or you could choose to ignore the mascara, serum and primer, and just fake it with a set of extensions. Search for a salon near you here, or we swear by Eye Candy. You’ll find them in Woolies at Eastgate, Cavendish, V&A and at 99c Kloof Street in Cape Town.
