Mascara Booster Maximizes Lash Length and Fullness

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

My officemate has super long thick lashes. I had asked her what mascara she uses, but she only stated that she buys whatever is on sale at the drugstore. I have tried various drugstore brands, but my lashes are not nearly as long and lush as hers. When I use too many coats of mascara, it looks clumpy and ugly.

Dear Mascara mystery,

Very dramatic eyelashes are more appropriate for evenings out, not the work place. Plus, you will save money by not using so much makeup.

However, to achieve long thick full lashes try an undercoat of mascara primer, booster, or base. Use the primer before applying mascara to give lashes more volume and length.
