Are you satisfied with your mascara or do you often find yourself testing and tossing new ones as often as you update your Facebook status? Well it's time to say sienora to your fringe frustrations by choosing the right wand for the look you're trying to achieve. Here are some helpful hints. If you want to...
- Thicken - Grab a wand that has very close bristles or longer bristles in the middle than on the outer edges. Two great picks: Blinc Kiss Me Mascara, $24 and Khiel's Marvelous Mineral Mascara, $16.50
- Lengthen - Who doesn't want a stiff one? The stiffer the better so each lash can be stretched outward with every stroke. Try: Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara, $7.49
- Define - Grab a wand that comes with a comb for easy separation or use one with a pointy brush. The smaller bristles at the tip allow for more precise coating on the inner and outer lashes. I highly recommend: Rimmel London Lash Maxx Mascara, $7.29
- Curl - Use a brush with a curve and apply pressure to lashes when stroking upward. Check out: Lancome Definicils Pro High Definition Curved Brush Mascara, $24
Since most mascaras are multi-taskers you can definitely expect more out of one, however to maximize your batters try layering one type on top of another. I like using one coat of Clinique High Definition Lashes Brush Then Comb Mascara,$14, underneath MAC Zoom Lash, $12.
