When it comes to any beauty product, we love anything that works overtime—and this clear formula nourishes, primes, and boosts lashes in one fair swipe.

Eyelash Tint

Semipermanent tinting is definitely something you can get done professionally, but if you're down for a little D.I.Y. action, look to a kit like this, which has an applicator, comb, creamy color, activating gel, and most importantly, under-eye shields. It comes in different shades (black and brown) so you can nail your perfect look.

Heated Eyelash Curling Iron

This is not for daily use. We repeat: This is not for daily use. Much like abusing hot tools for your hair causes damage, a heated lash curler should be used sparingly for special occasions. Basically, it gives more of an intense curl by pushing the wand gently against your mascara-coated lashes.

Individual Fake Lashes

For the ultimate are-they-or-aren't-they-real effect, it's all about the individual lashes. Apply them to the base of your natural lashes with just a dab of lash glue. (We recommend applying a coat of black liner first.)
