Sometimes you’re going for a subtle look and sometimes you want a pop. But regardless of what mood you’re in, eyelashes are a crucial part of your makeup routine. They draw attention to your gorgeous eyes and help add a bit more color and definition to your look. So, of course, it’s important to select the mascara and primer that work best for you. And with L’Oreal’s line of products, you’ll have plenty to choose from.

L’Oreal Mascara Line Overview

L’Oreal, a trusted brand in the cosmetics world and one of my faves, of course, has a top-notch line of eye makeup for your everyday as well as special event needs. Between their primers to condition lashes and their volumizing formulas and mascara brushes, L’Oreal’s mascara line promises customers long, full lashes that are clump-free and won’t smudge.

Plus, the primers and mascaras come in a variety of colors, so you can mix and match based on your mood or occasion. Make sure not to dilute your primers or mascaras with any other liquids, as this will ruin their effectiveness.

To get the perfect look you desire, L’Oreal recommends first combing your eyelashes. Then use an eyelash curler to get your lashes looking even longer than they are. Only now are you ready to apply the primer. While applying the mascara, lightly raise your eyelid so that you can get to the root of the lashes too.

To get full coverage on your bottom lashes, make sure to move the wand from side to side as well. Voila, you have yourself some instant wow-factor lashes.

Once you’ve selected the perfect mascara for the look you want, it’s time to secure a primer as well. L’Oreal’s Voluminous Lash Primer is just what you need to perfect your look. It’s lightweight and will immediately start the process of giving your lashes more volume and length. It also conditions your eyelashes so that they stay protected and soft.

To use, just apply the primer and then mascara to each eye one at a time while making sure to apply the mascara on top of the primer before the primer dries. And if you want an even stronger look, use two coats of primer before applying the mascara.

Also check out the Voluminous Lash Paradise Primer, which contains rose oil and has a pink tinge. It too can give you thicker eyelashes and boost the appearance of your mascara. This primer will help your mascara stay on your lashes while conditioning them at the same time. Its 200+ bristles will hold just the right amount of primer that you need for your lashes to be fabulous.
