14 Mascaras That Will Add Length and Separation to Your Bottom LashesFebruary 07, 2023
Mascara is an essential part of our everyday makeup routine, and the formulas we keep in our collection are wide-ranging, from the lengthening and thickening to the vividly colored. And because the fat wands and volumizing formulas that fluff up our top lashes can be a little unwieldy, we even have defining formulas that are perfect for the bottom lashes. Below, we’re sharing our favorite mascaras for bottom lashes that deliver flake-free, clump-free results.
The Best Bottom Lash Mascaras
L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Lift Washable Mascara
