Looking for the best lash primer? If your regular mascara isn’t cutting it, try using a mascara primer underneath your regular mascara for added length, drama and volume. A lash primer can revitalize the performance of your existing mascara and increase it’s performance. Allow approximately 30 seconds after applying the lash primer before applying mascara. This will prevent the primer from diluting the color of your regular mascara.
