Showstopping lashes used to require a fake fringe (not to mention glue and a steady hand). But now you can get that lush look with just a few swipes of a mascara wand. "These new formulas have the perfect combination of volumizing
and lengthening fibers, plus brushes that grab the tiny hairs other mascaras miss," says Melissa Silver, a makeup artist in New York City.
To maximize the eye-opening effect, get the wand as close to the root of your lashes as possible, then wiggle it up in a back-and-forth motion, instead of just sweeping out, says Silver: "You’ll be amazed at how much more mascara you deposit this way."
