How well do you know your lashes?

Dear Beauty Buff,

 

If you were stranded on a desert island, what one piece of makeup would you bring? My go-to cosmetic grab would be mascara. There’s simply no quicker, easier way to define your look than with a lovely lash. But not all mascaras are for all lash types. How well do you know your lashes? We’re breaking down the difference:

 

Lengthening
For both short and full lashes, look for mascara that elongates and separate lashes. Pick one that contains fibers, or has an applicator made of rubber to achieve a lengthening effect. The shorter and denser the bristles, the longer it will make your lashes.

Volumizing/Thickening
If your lashes are sparse, look for mascara that contains silicone or minerals to add volume. These ingredients also dry quicker, which means you can build layers of mascara and plump up your lashes. The applicator should have soft, big bristles, which leads to more mascara on the lashes.

 

Curling
Straight lashes benefit from curling-mascara formulas that use flexible waxes to soften and curve the lashes. An eyelash curler also allows the curls set.

 

Yours in beauty,
