What is the best mascara brand? This is one of the most commonly asked questions a Makeup Artist receives every day. I would love to give you a simple answer with a particular brand and formula to go purchase. Then again, there is no such thing as one mascara that could be best for everyone. The best mascara for you, your friend and your sister are most likely, all different. Determining the best one for you personally, depends on various factors. What best represents your lashes without makeup on and also what do you think is your main “beauty issue” with your eyelashes? Are they long but sparse? Directionally challenged? Thin and short? Droopy and hard to curl?
Now, think about the kind of mascara look you want. Longer lashes is a given, but do you like a natural; no makeup look, obvious mascara or even heavy lashes ala Tammy Faye? The truth is there is a perfect mascara available for everyone! You just need to know what you want and what each tube delivers. That is where the secret is and why we get so confused! The last time you went to a store for something to give your lashes a boost; you might have been mesmerized by the wide variety of choices you had. While many brands offer a dozen or more mascara formulas all with completely different applicator wands and numerous color choices.
Here are my 5 favorites mascara to choose from depending on your style and preference.
Dior show Mascara is among the Dior’s iconic makeup products and has been a fashion-show staple for many years. The brand’s newest product is supposed to boost the formula to new heights of performance, and it does have so many amazing things going for it.
Lengthening, Waterproof, volumising and long-lasting – Dior show High Definition Lash Curler Mascara does almost everything you can ask for it.
Good at fanning lashes – the secret is the curved brush, which includes both short and long superfine bristles to catch every lash – L’Oréal Paris’s Volume Million Lashes Feline Mascara defines, conditions and even volumises, thanks to argan and camellia oils in the formula.
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara provides the magic you want. It is a lash multiplying & thus volume increasing mascara. The non-clumpy Extreme Volume formula delivers great volume for those stunning pair of eyes. It gives a lift to the lashes & curves them flawlessly. Eyes look brighter, much wider & more seductive.
MAC Haute and Naughty Mascara
A two-in-one mascara that allows you to choose if you want lashes to be naturally defined, or instantly combed and loaded for full-on drama. Simple to use dual-wiper system lets this light-weight formula to go on either way. One wiper refines the application for a clean sweep, while the other loads the lashes for greater effect.
For better MAC mascara, I recommend buying two: For the bigger, bolder lashes, try MAC Opulash that has a good thick brush that provides both volume and length. No goop.
Max Factor’s Masterpiece Mascara is the type of mascara you buy again and again – it’s all in the iFX brush that allows accurate application and uniformly coated lashes.
I tried various mascaras last year, and all of them have disappointed me. It’s not that they were not good, it’s just that the look they provided was too natural for my style. What I want from a mascara are volume and thickness, and Max Factor Masterpiece Max provide just that.
