Length, volume, definition and curl… there are many factors to think of when looking to find the best mascara for your lashes.

While there is a mascara for every lash type and desired finish, it’s worth noting that formulas look different on everyone depending on your natural lashes. On a side note, if you’re looking to grow your lashes, you can always look into ways to enhance your natural lashes with a lash serum. For now, let’s look into what the best mascaras for every effect are.
