The Ultimate Guide To Mascara

Long, luscious, thick eyelashes are always in style. If you either opt for a minimalist makeup, or you need something fancy, you don't need the skills of a makeup artist to achieve the perfect fluttery lashes of your dreams. All you need is the right mascara. That's easier said than done with all the options you have out there.

So let's shed some light on this topic and end all the mystery around it.

Waterproof Mascara

Since it's almost summer let's start with this one. Waterproof mascara is a must on those days when you are planning a swim at the pool, a little dip in the ocean or just resist on those days cursed with rain. These mascaras aren't just waterproof, they are also crying proof and weather proof, so if you are in a very hot and humid area your best bet might be to wear one of these mascaras. Try to find one that nourishes your lashes, there are formulas that contain a high amount of coconut oil as a top ingredient.

Lengthening Mascara

If you are in the mood for longer lashes, you can’t just use for any tube. You need lightweight formula with a C-shaped mascara wand, with tiny silicone bristles, that evenly coats your lashes, without any clumping, while also encourages them to curl. Brushes of most lengthening mascaras have denser bristles, which allow the mascara to get onto the lashes especially on the tips. The best lengthening mascaras will rival even the most dramatic of false eyelashes and eyelash extensions.

Volumizing Mascara

To achieve that dramatic effect you'll need to reach for a dark black mascara, or one at least a few shades darker than your natural lashes. Apply two or three layers of formula for faux-falsies, or stick to one coat for “no-makeup” makeup days.

Curling Mascara

Curling mascara does just that: makes your eyelashes curl upward, making them appear longer and more volumized. Give your eyelash curler a helping hand with a curling mascara that helps you defy gravity.

Lash Defining Mascara

The key to lash defining mascara is in the applicator. You need bristles that have been engineered to lift and coat each strand individually. You'll need buildable formula easily adjusts to any makeup look. Swipe one coat on your minimalist days, or add up to three or four layers for the glammest nights out.

Bottom Lash Mascara

Your lower lashes are shorter and less voluminous than your top lashes, so stop treating them the same! Trade your regular wand for an adorably tiny lash wand that adds maximum precision for the shortest of your lash hairs. Pick an oil-based formula that nourishes your lashes and stays on long, so you won’t be stuck with any smudging.

Clear Mascara

Clear mascara is the ultimate hype product for every makeup look you’re trying to nail. Going for a minimalist look? The clear formula lets your natural lash color shine, while giving your brows and your lashes extra support and direction. Looking to wow with shimmer? Clear mascara provides the perfect base coat for your shimmery dreams.

Powder Mascara

Powder Mascara is very different from wet and dry mascara. You add a few drops of water into it and use it with a wand. The mascara sets to give a false eyelash kind of a finish.

Cream Mascara

Creamy Mascara provides volume to thin and sparse eyelashes and adds depth to the eyes. But this can smudge easily so you will need a special kind of applicator for it.

Non-Clumping Mascara

These are the latest addition in the market and contain glycerine and silk extracts, which give the lashes a neat finish. The applicators have a longer wand for a deeper finish.
