This year, many makeup artists went heavy on the mascara; Marc Jacobs even added crazy, fake lashes. You might want to save the fakes for a night out, says Monroe, but thick, glossy, black lashes look great anytime.
GET THE LOOK: Think "black, black, black" Monroe says. Use a plastic-molded brush, like CoverGirl LashExact (there's also a waterproof version). Instead of pulling the wand straight out to the end of the lash, draw it out, up and away from your eye toward your temple. The result is a thicker, longer-looking lash. Repeat a few times for a superthick coat.
