We’re strong believers that we can pull off even the most over-the-top makeup trends we witness on the runway and on the pages of magazines. But translating an editorial beauty trend into an everyday look is no feat for the weak. Enter: the spidery lash trend, a high fashion fad that features top or bottom eyelashes lengthened and grouped together to create a spiky, clumpy-cool effect.

Ahead, find the six best mascaras to achieve the spidery lashes of your dreams. Editor’s Tip: To get the spidery look with these products, we recommend layering and layering until you’ve built up the effect to your liking.

Lancôme Monsieur Big Volumizing Mascara

The key to a great clumpy lash is a thick, round brush, and Monsieur Big does not fall short on this element in the slightest. Easy to wiggle and comb through your lashes, this soft wand enhances the volume of each and every one, and will make your eyes look bigger and bolder in no time.

L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara

Lash Paradise adds just the right amount of volume and length for spidery, clumpy looking lashes — mess-free. A pro tip with this one: Try applying it vertically to make sure you coat your lashes evenly and don’t miss any spots.
