Does Mascara Primer really work?
Most mascara primers are used to provide your natural lashes with keratin or to help gain a smoother mascara application by reducing clumps, increasing the longevity of your mascara and helping to amplify your mascara look. However, the results that you see will be entirely dependent on the primer's formula. Both of our clear mascaras are conditioning so that your lashes can remain hydrated and better cared for. Our lash primer from Technic is enriched with coconut oil and vitamin E to help condition, nourish and strengthen your lashes.
How do you apply Mascara Primer?
Mascara Primer is applied similarly to mascara (with a mascara wand) but we would recommend doing one eye at a time as the mascara needs to be applied before the primer dries. If it isn't you may find the mascara very difficult to apply- it will be more likely to clump your lashes together.
Should you use Mascara Primer?
Wearing mascara day in, day out can end with nasty results for your lashes, leaving them dry and thinned out. Using primer, or conditioning mascara as a base can help to combat this by providing them with nourishment and conditioning your eyelashes.
Benefits of Clear Mascara
Using one our of clear conditioning mascaras can also be ideal if you have lighter coloured lashes as it will allow the beauty of your natural colour to shine through. Perfect for a more subtle look and to add a bit of extra sparkle to your eyes. Clear mascara can also be used as a top coat to help avoid the mascara running or smudging, perfect for a night out or when you don't want to use waterproof mascara.
But be careful...
Also, please remember to always remove mascara and mascara primer before you go to bed as leaving it on overnight could cause your eyelashes to fall out. Also, it is recommended that open mascara is used within 3-5 months. After this period of time, you should dispose of it and buy a new one, so as not to risk bacterial infections. However, you could still keep the mascara wand to use as a spoolie (once it has been washed).
