Before going into all the ways lash primer can help mascara go on more smoothly, last longer, and boost volume, let's first consider why even people who don't regularly wear mascara should still consider a mascara primer. (Yes, you read that right.)
Lash primer often packs hydrating ingredients like panthenol, oils, and peptides that can strengthen and protect the hair. In fact, the light-colored creams applied with a mascara-like wand can double as a conditioning mask for lashes, even when worn solo or overnight. Of course, because primers also include microfibers, any follow-up mascara you apply will get a better grip for fuller, longer-looking lashes as a result. They also help makeup stay on your lashes and can reduce clumping.
Ahead, find the short list of mascara primers already tested and loved by other Sephora shoppers. If your lashes could talk, we're fairly sure they would say thank you, too.
