Being Asian, we were born with short, stick-straight lashes—we just can't seem to achieve the long, fluttery eyelashes! But, all hope is not lost—there are ways you can score full, doll-like lashes!
Below, we have rounded up some tips for you to score your best lashes ever:
1. Invest in a mascara with a thin wand.
If you're not-so-blessed in the lash department, use a mascara with a thin brush + tiny bristles that can coat each and every hair. Plus points if it has a waterproof and smudge-proof formula! Our pick? Careline's Skinny Mascara—its narrow wand works wonders.

2. Use an eyelash primer.
If you feel like your regular mascara just isn't cutting it on its own anymore, add lash primer to the mix. It works to give your eyelashes extra volume, plus it also extends the mascara's staying power.

3. Try a clear or brown mascara for your no-makeup makeup look.
If you think black mascaras are way too dramatic on your lashes, try using a brown or a clear one. You'll score the same lifted and fluttery effect that looks super natural.

4. Go for a mascara with fibers.
If you love the look of eyelash extensions but you just can't commit to them (they're super high maintenance, TBH), turn to a mascara with fibers. It's usually made of silk, nylon, or rayon that coats your lashes to give a fuller and more feathery effect.

5. Experiment with a *colored* mascara.
If you're not in the mood to put makeup on but you don't want to leave the house totally barefaced, go for a colored mascara! It's the simplest way to create an eye-catching lewk. FYI, blue and green mascara complement brown eyes!
