Mascara: Best Wands
MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara ($18, maccosmetics.com). We love a product that does double duty. This wand gives you definition with one swipe and volume with the other.
Best Lash Serum: Lashatone
Hydroxatone Lashatone Lash Serum ($50, hydroxatone.com). This magical serum made our once meager lashes look like falsies-no lie!
