3 steps to fuller lashes

is a primer needed for thick lashes?

I’m skeptical of salespeople in general. I constantly question their motives. Do I really look good in this dress? Do I really need hair texturizer for volume? Is makeup primer necessary? I blog from my ever evolving point of view. I love to share my experiences because I’m interested in yours. So while I remain on the fence about foundation primer, I am all in for lash primer to create thick lashes. I’ve been using Urban Decay Subversion Lash primer for years along with my favorite Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. I’m obsessed. Sometimes I want natural looking mascara, in which case I skip it. But when I want some oomph, Urban Decay Subversion Lash primer is 100% my go to.

tips to urban decay subversion lash primer

  • do not let last primer dry before putting on mascara.
  • put it on top lash coating all of your lashes on the top bottom, sweeping it from side to side to make sure every lash is fully covered.
  • quickly grab your mascara and coat that all over being sure to cover the white lash primer.
  • I like to then add extra mascara on the tips of my lashes to pull them up higher while it’s still wet.

    Love this Kelly! You are such a beautiful woman. Your smile just lights up your face. Thanks for the tips on applying mascara. I’ve tried the Urban Decay primer just recently. Got it as a free sample at Ulta. I just love that place. I wasn’t sure if I saw a difference in my lashes or not. But looking at your picture with primer and without I can see that it makes a noticeable difference to apply the primer. It opens the eye and is really worth the extra step. I use “They’re Real” mascara by Benefit. I’ll also use Great Lash by Maybelline. I’ll have to try the Urban Decay mascara next time. Thanks for the scoope!
