The Best Mascara for the Eyelash Look You Crave

Trying to make your lashes more voluminous? Longer? Bolder? There’s a mascara to achieve all of your #LashGoals.

Eyelashes are everything. We’re always looking for a way to make them look bigger, bolder and longer with a shameful array of different mascaras, eyelash curlers and the occasional eyelash extension appointment. Great-looking lashes are the perfect finishing touch to every makeup look — no matter how subtle or intense it may be.

The tricky thing about mascara is that there are approximately a million different options, and they all claim to do different things for lashes. But sometimes we’re looking for a mascara with very specific superpowers — like separating lashes or making them look extra thick. To better understand some of the different mascaras out there and to find out what they will do for your lashes before you purchase one, we rounded up six of our favorites with different functions.

The Maybelline Lash Sensational Washable Mascara has a fanning brush with ten bristles that will fully coat your lashes for a thick, full-fan effect.
