Plump Up My Whimpy Eyelashes

Dear Sugar
I am lucky enough to be blessed with long eyelashes. Unfortunately, I've also got thin, fine hair and my lashes are the same consistency. Do you know of any mascaras that can really add volume without having to apply 15 coats? Limp Lashed Lara

Dear Limp Lashed Lara
Here's a more permanent idea; Professional Eyelash Extensions . Although a little bit more costly, your problem is solved and you won't have to constantly mess with falsies. If that's too extravagant and you are just looking for a mascara, Redpoint Color Cosmetics makes Redpoint MegaLash Volumizing Mascara to help those with thin, lifeless eyelashes. Also, Maybelline just came out with Maybelline Intense XXL Mascara to help increase length and volume. L'Oreal also carries L'Oreal Volume Shocking Mascara which supposedly plumps your lashes up to 12x their volume. I recommend applying no more than 8-10 strokes per eye. Apply another coat to your corner lashes - it makes them look elongated and catlike. The Frugal Face offers additional advice on various mascara brands as well as application techniques.
