You probably don’t wear a lot of make up but chances are you are a fan of mascara. That said, when it comes to mascara each brand is unique. The mascara that works for your friend will not necessarily work for you. As you will soon find out, the problem lies not in the mascara but in your lashes. And as you delve deeper, you find that the mascara itself is not half as important as the mascara wand that is used in application.
If you’re a victim of stubby, sparse or pale lashes, don’t worry. I have compiled some tips to help you in choosing the best mascara for your lashes. Keep in mind that all mascaras use different wands so it is not wise to mix them up as the results may be disastrous. Trying to make a decision is very difficult.
However, with the information I am to provide, you will be able to make a better decision on what mascara to pick for yourself.
First and foremost there are different types of mascaras. Waterproof, thickening, lengthening, defining mascara and curling mascara are all types of mascara. Yes! Choosing mascara now is more challenging than it used to be largely because there are so many to choose from. Most people tend to go with mascara that complements their skin tone. Think about your eye color too and pick mascara that works with both.
If a dramatic look is what you’re seeking then you can have fun with dark blue and light blue mascara i.e. if your eyes are blue. Purple mascara works very well especially with green eyed individuals with auburn hair or light skinned individuals in general. In choosing mascara you need to pay attention to the size of the mascara brush. The fuller and longer eyelashes you have, the thicker the brush you need.
Take for example lengthening mascara. I find that this type of mascara is great for those with reasonably thick eyelashes. The brushes usually have long bristles to help you put mascara to the tips of your lashes. They also serve the purpose of extending your eyelash length. Anyone can use waterproof mascara as long as they are not allergic to it. This type of mascara, however, is not highly recommended for daily use and comes highly recommended for athletes who spend so much of their day in water or in extremely humid atmospheres.
Defining mascara- coats each lash to make them dramatically long and extremely defined.
What about thickening mascara you ask? Thickening mascara wands consist of thick bristles. They serve to broaden your eyelashes and make them stand out more by thickening them – just as the name spells out.
Curling mascara is useful in exposing your eyes to give them better definition while adding thickness to the lashes. Not only do they bring out beautiful eyes but also very enhancing eyelashes.
