If dramatic lashes are what you're looking for, you've come to the right place.

When Jessica Alba stepped out in Paris last Sunday, we couldn't help but notice her incredible '50s-inspired beauty look—fully loaded with gorgeous, dark eyelashes. Her secret? Celeb makeup artist Daniel Martin and a little thing called Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara + Lash Primer.

It's one thing to get the volume you desire, but it's quite another to get the deep, dark color you're aiming for (especially for the light-haired). That's where the below pro tip comes in.

The Trick: "To get Jessica's dark, exaggerated lashes, allow the primer to set for 5-10 minutes (until the white disappears) before applying a few coats of the mascara," said the pro.

It might add a bit more time to your glam routine, but this technique needs to be put to the test immediately.
