1. A STURDY LASH CURLER
BRETT SAYS: This is huge. I'm shocked by how many women don't take advantage of this eye opening, younger-looking-in-a-snap tool.

Even if your lashes don't need the extra lift a curler can give, I like the crispness that a little nudge will give by just aligning and evening up the lash line.
TRY: The CURL from Vanitymark (guess what ladies? It's on sale for $6.50 on vanitymark.com!!). Using a curler will make your eyes look as big and expressive as possible. The silicon curling pad is designed for just enough give to curl not crimp lashes.
2. THE PERFECT BLACK MASCARA
BRETT SAYS: I'm a huge fan of mascara. I love that women can wear oodles of it and it really never ‘reads' as makeup. What better way to amp up your look than with long, dark lush lashes?!
TRY: L'Oreal Voluminous - I was turned onto this by Annette Benning YEARS ago and it's still one of my faves! It's a beautiful shade of black black and goes on super smooth!
3. A LASH COMB & BRUSH
BRETT SAYS: An additional boost for all the perfectionists out there - a brush/comb is key for me to fluff and separate lashes for a natural and defined lashline.
TRY: The DUO from my line Vanitymark - It's a dual-sided foldable brush/comb combo that collapses into a tiny, travel-friendly size and easily fluffs lashes pre-mascara and eliminates clumps post-mascara. Check out vanitymark.com!).
