Three Necessary Tools For Fab Eyelashes

According to celeb makeup artist Brett Freedman, there are 3 necessary tools to fab lashes. Listed below are Brett's list of tools:


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!!). 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.


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!

OR: Cover Girl Lashblast in Very Black - Great formula. Great brush. This is a must-have for my kit and Kelly Clarkson got me to try it! She grabbed a tube while touring and had me give it a try...I loved it!


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!).

Brett regularly works with celebs including Vanessa Hudgens, Reba McEntire, Kelly Clarkson, Emily Blunt and Jessica Lucas.
