No more confusion at cosmetic shop when you are buying your mascara
According to Allure Magazine, you can tell a lot by a mascara by the shape of the wand.
Fat brushes create voluptuous lashes, while skinny brushes will coat each lash perfectly without clumping. Curved wands will help curl lashes.
It's touted as a lengthening mascara and beauty editors swear by it. Lengthening mascaras have dense bristles that allow you to get more mascara on your lashes and especially on the tips of your lashes.
When you want bulk, you do want to buy the mascaras touted as "thickening." These products contain a thicker formula of waxes and silicone polymers that coat lashes and make them appear bulkier.
Obviously these "non-smudging" mascaras contain special synthetic formulas meant to repel moisture. But these can be harsh on your lashes (to prevent breaking lashes, you can put Vaseline on them before you go to sleep). A great waterproof mascara is Maybelline.
These contain ingredients like silk extract and glycerin. The applicators also have longer wands which allow for a more even application.
