Celebrity Beauty: Mascara Secrets for Picture-Perfect Peepers

Jul 15, 2011 - by Amanda Gabriele

How do celebrities get their lashes to look so long? Obviously for the big events, falsies are a must and no big secret. But ladies who've received the advice of countless makeup artists about DIY beauty must have secrets to share with us, right? We found some excellent celebrity pointers on how to turn up the volume of your eyelashes in no time.

Drew Barrymore applies one thin coat of mascara, waits a few seconds and curls her lashes. We love Christian Dior DiorShow Mascara and the Tweezerman ProCurl Eyelash Curler.

Jessica Alba uses not one, but two mascaras to get long, clump-free lashes. She applies Blinc Kiss Me Mascara to lengthen and separate lashes and MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash to create volume.

When her mascara gets a bit clumpy, Mariah Carey mists her mascara wand with water before applying. Mayawater Facial Mist will do double-duty for both your face and mascara.

Instead of plain black, Madonna uses maroon mascara because it makes blue and green eyes pop. Try Benefit Cosmetics BADgal Lash Mascara in Plum for the same effect.

Kim Kardashian alternates her mascara daily to keep lashes from becoming brittle. She swears by Lancôme HYPNÔSE Custom Volume Mascara and M.A.C. Zoom Lash.

Ashley Greene uses Xtreme Lashes to accentuate her eyes. If you're looking for a quick fix, we love the outrageous volumes of Illamasqua False Eye Lashes.
