The three best things you can do for your lashes

We put a lot of time and effort into taking care of the hair on top of our heads, so why do totally ignore our lashes? After all, they're one of our most feminine attributes - and they need a little TLC every once in a while, too. Here are three great things you can do to help your lashes look their best.

1. Use a lash primer. Lash primer coats your fringe before you apply thick coats of heavy mascara, which means your hair won't be damaged by chemicals or additives. Plus, lash primer will help give your mascara a surface to adhere to - meaning it won't smudge or fade, even on your longest days.

2. Use a heated lash curler. A big occasion calls for styled hair, so why not styled lashes? Like a curling iron, a heated lash curler uses hot metal to give you lashes a bend that'll last all day long. You can bat that fringe to your heart's content and it'll keep on pointing skyward.

3. Use a good makeup remover. At the end of a long day, you lashes need a wash. Don't rely on soap and water - use a good makeup removing cleanser to get rid of all your eyeliner, mascara, shadow and whatever else you wear.
