Best Mascara for Your Eyelashes
Whether you are going for all-out glamor or girl-next-door gorgeous,
a coat or two of mascara will work wonders for bringing out your
beautiful eyes and long lashes. If you don't regularly wear makeup, you
may want to consider these questions before selecting mascara from
among countless brands and styles.
What type of eyelashes do I have? Are they long, curly, thick, thin, short, just right?
you answer this question, you can learn what positives your lashes have
going for them and what element could be easily enhanced with the right
kind of mascara. Shorter lashes could lash out with a length enhancing
type of mascara. Thinner lashes will become fuller with a thickening
formula and longer lashes will really benefit from curling mascara.
What will look best with my complexion?
What will complement my outfit and wardrobe in general?
are available in a wide range of colors and styles, from blackest black
and dark brown to lighter shades of both, or even fun colors like blues
and greens. Most times black and brown hues are most appropriate and

Do I plan to go swimming? Is there a chance I might cry, or
laugh so hard that I cry? Am I going to take a quick shower at some

If you answered
yes to any of these questions, waterproof mascara is the way to go!
Great for preventing soppy scenes at sad movies or emotional times -
weddings, graduations and the like, waterproof mascara can save the
day, or at least your face. Available most often in shades of black and
brown, this type of mascara can be difficult to remove unless you have
a makeup remover that is capable of gently washing away water resistant
Do you cringe at the thought of that archaic metal eyelash curler getting within a foot of your face?
so, you will want to keep an eye out for mascara that has a curling
element to it. Sometimes these products come with multiple
characteristics, like thickening or lengthening aspects as well. First
determine your needs and then seek out mascara that will satisfy them.
Do you feel that your eyelashes are very blonde or not so
noticeable? Do you often feel like you have to glob a lot makeup onto
them just to make them stand out?
If this problem seems to haunt
you, try a lash thickening mascara, or possibly one that lengthens and
thickens. A thicker formula will be better for your lashes than a
product that cakes on layer after layer. Even if your eyelashes are
still a bit subtle, you can always further accent your eyes with
eyeliner and darker eye shadows. If you still seem to have trouble
making your eyes more defined, consider checking into fake eyelashes
for special occasions.

No matter which mascara suits you
best, remember to pair it with a pretty shadow and eyeliner if you so
desire. To prevent smudges on your pillows and bits of makeup
irritating your eyes overnight, remember to remove mascara and other
makeup with a gentle cleanser before bed.
