Choosing The Right Kind Of Mascara For Your Lashes

By Rima Chowdhury

Mascara is one among the favourite beauty products every girl loves to use. Using a mascara helps to add volume your eyelashes and also make them look pretty and attractive.

Not only the wands of the mascara are important but the type of mascara is also equally important. Using the right mascara wand and the right type of lash formula can help to give you bright and attractive eyes.

Not everyone is blessed with the same kind and length of eyelashes and hence it is important to pick up the right mascara according to your lashes.

Here is the list showing different mascara types that you could select from based on your eyelashes.


1. Volumizing Mascara

Volumizing mascara is for those women who have extremely thin and small eyelashes. If you want to add volume and texture to your lashes, it is very important to use the right type of mascara. Volumizing mascara is perfect for a woman with thin and short lashes, as this mascara helps to cover the length of the lashes and make them look voluminous.


2. Lengthening Mascara

For those who have small lashes lengthening mascara is the ideal choice, as it helps to add volume as well as length to the lashes. Lengthening mascara generally comes with a fiber band, so that it helps to cover the lashes fully and add length to them easily. It is always good to coat 2-3 times with a lengthening mascara to get attractive lashes.


3. Curling Mascara

Curling mascara is specially designed for those women who have poorly defined lashes. Generally, curling mascara comes with a special formula (falsifying polymers) that helps the eyelashes to shrink and gives a defined shape. Apart from the mascara formula, the wand of the mascara is different as well. Curling mascara has a slightly curved shape rather than a straight one.


4. Smudge-free mascara

Every one of us is acquainted with the smudge-free mascaras, but for those who still aren't aware, a smudge-free mascara goes longer without extra efforts. Smudge-free mascara is a special type of mascara which should be used by girls who want their makeup to go longer. Due to the wax oil present in the smudge-free mascara, it prevents smudging on the face.


5. Waterproof Mascara

Waterproof mascara is one among that special types of mascara you should use if you are expecting some tears, oil or moisture on the face. Waterproof mascara is generally smudge free and goes longer without any extra efforts. Waterproof mascara contains waxes and mineral oils from vegetables which make them waterproof and smudge free.


6. Lash Defining Mascara

Lash defining mascara is a single product which promises to add volume as well as thickness to your lashes. Using lash defining mascara can help to make your lashes look different and separated. It helps to add texture, shape, and volume to the lashes, thus defining them. Due to special pigments and fibers present in the lash defining mascara, it helps to cover the lashes from top to bottom.


7. Eyebrow Mascara

As the common mascara does to your lashes, this version of mascara helps to add definition and beauty to your brows. These mascaras are generally thick in texture and are matte or glossy finishes. Their brushes are the same as the lash mascara, but some come with a comb applicator for even application. You can opt for the proper colour which matches your eyelashes and eyebrow colour exactly.
