We’re missing a lot of things about the outside world and normal life while in isolation: nice restaurants, visits to the cinema, browsing in shops, human interaction… wow, that last one got a bit too real.
Someone we’re missing (almost) most of all, though? Our lash ladies. Because while our lashes usually rely on these trusty technicians for dear life, our beloved professional lifts, extensions and tints are a no-go right now. And so, we have to make do at home.
Luckily, there are some genius lash care products designed to help you return your straight, short, pale and lifeless lashes back to their former curled, long, tinted and gorgeous glory, and we’ve rounded up the very best of them. Watch out, Bambi.

DB Cosmetics Extend-A-Lash Brush On Lash Fibres
Fiddly lash glue isn’t for everyone, we get it: sometimes lash fibres are a better fit. This clever hi-tech
tubing mascara uses lengthening black fibres to pretty much create the illusion of instant lash extensions (that wash away at the end of the day instead of requring time-consuming removal; bonus). Not bad for under $20, huh? Raww
