12 Best Eyelash Primers To Up Your Mascara Game
Sometimes, we all need a little help in the lash department. And sometimes, mascara just doesn’t seem to do the trick. If you have pesky short lashes that won’t hold a curl, or simply want your mascara to go the extra mile, why not try a lash primer? These best eyelash primers will help lengthen and volumise your eyelashes to totally up your mascara game.
1. Lancome Cils Booster XL
Lancome Cils Booster XL is my personal favourite eyelash primer for lengthening and volumising before mascara application. This white formula contains tiny fibres that add length to your lashes and prevent them from breaking. Top tip: apply mascara when the primer formula is still wet for some serious volume.
2. Urban Decay Subversion
This primer contains vitamin E to help boost your lashes so they look thicker and fuller. The wet, creamy formula prevents flaking and the huge brush is as big as a regular mascara wand, so you know it will cling onto every single lash.
3. Tarte Opening Act
Are you looking for extremely dramatic lashes? Then this is the primer for you. This primer promises up to 952% more volume, and that’s before mascara. The best part is every primer comes with a free mascara mini, so you get two products for the price of one! This is one of the best eyelash primers that really works!
4. Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D
Like a lip plumper but for your eyes, use this if you want oversized lashes. This primer also doubles as a conditioning treatment that can be worn at night, so over long term use you can have longer, fuller lashes naturally!
5. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
This is the lash primer used by makeup artists on the set of photoshoots, so you know it’s a good one. Like all the other primer on this list, it promises extra volume and makes your mascara last longer. Go for this if you want an easy, all-rounder eyelash primer.
6. Clinique Lash Building Primer
If you’re a contact lens wearer then you might want to go for this eyelash primer option. This is tested by ophthalmologists and promises to protect and condition lashes as it primes them for mascara. This is another of the best eyelash primers that will last!
7. NYX Big & Loud
Maybe you don’t want to commit to the world of eyelash primer just yet and want a cheaper option? NYX is a great drugstore option that is effective but won’t break the bank. Wear this before your favourite mascara for big and loud lashes just like it says on the tube.
8. Blinc Black Lash Primer
A lot of the eyelash primers on this list are tinted white, so if the thought of white lashes turns you off, don’t fret! Blinc offers a black lash primer option that can even be used on its own if you’re already blessed with fuller lashes.
9. Benefit They’re Real! Tinted Mascara Primer
If you’re a Benefit fan then you might’ve already heard of their top-rated They’re Real! mascara. This is a primer from the same line that comes in a brown tint to suit every lash colour. Like the mascara, it promises to help give lashes the look of falsies.
10. Shiro Kombu Mascara Primer
Shiro’s eyelash primer is a more subtle version for a natural looking lash. Just like the other primers it increases mascara longevity, but has a much softer looking tint. This also works as an eyelash conditioner for use in the evening.
11. Estee Lauder Lash Primer Plus
The thing that sets this primer apart from the rest is that it curls your lashes as it primes — so you really only need one product! Described as having a magnetic effect to hold up your lashes, this is one primer definitely worth the splurge.
12. Stila Lash Stunner
Stuck with pesky, hard-to-reach lashes? Then Stila Lash Stunner is the eyelash primer for you! This primer comes with two types of fibres and has a different brush density on either side, so it can get into all the hard-to-reach places.
