I’m always looking for the next best product that is going to give me full, va va voom lashes, as well as any liners or tricks that will make my lashes look even more luscious. I recently discovered the It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer, which is a mascara-like product that will get right to the root of the lashline, giving a tightline effect and providing a base that works with mascara to make the lashes even thicker and fuller.
You can use this product three ways: (1) to give a lined effect to the lashline; (2) to tightline (line the upper waterline that sits below the lashes – this gives the lashes an even more full effect) or (3) to prime the lashes for mascara. No matter how you use it, the skinny wand will get right to the base of the lashes to give the look of a fuller lash line (with little effort)!
The formula is waterproof, so there’s no smudging or streaking, and it contains lash-conditioning ingredients including protein, biotin and vitamins that infuse and help strengthen your natural lashes. And it’s paraben-free, fragrance-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free, making it safe for sensitive eyes.
I also got the It Cosmetics Hello Lashes Clinically Proven 5-in1 Mascara to try out in conjunction with the Tightline Primer. I am a bit of a mascara snob, admittedly, but Iam really liking this mascara so far. It gives my lashes a ton of length and volume in just one coat. You do need to be careful though, because the lashes can become spidery if you use too much. But with the perfect amount, it leaves lashes looking full and gorgeous!
Today I wanted to share how I get thicker looking, voluminous lashes with a tightline effect using the It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara Primer and Hello Lashes Mascara!
My makeup is done (foundation, brows, eyeshadow, blush and lipstick), but I have not applied any eyeliner or mascara to my eyes.
Using the It Cosmetics Tightline Mascara Primer, start at the very base of the lashes where you can see the flesh-tone underneath, and wiggle the wand back and forth to create a tightline effect.
Here’s the look with just the Tightline mascara primer:
Apply the Hello Lashes Mascara to the top and bottom lashes as you normally would. I used one coat here, and in conjunction with the Tightline mascara primer, it was the perfect amount to give me that voluminous lash look that I crave.
And that’s it! These products are so easy to use, and I love the finished effect that they give to my lashes!
