Friday Five: Mascara!

I get questions all the time on my tumblr, and in real life, about my eyelashes! People will ask what mascara i'm wearing, or if i'm wearing false lashes.  So, I thought i'd share my favorite mascaras as well as my tips and tricks on applying mascara to make your eyelashes look as good as they possibly could be!

I've sorted through my makeup to narrow down my top 5 mascaras.

1.  Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara I have never seen a mascara wand as large as this one, ever! This mascara claims to lengthen and volumize your lashes to their full extent, and that's really what it does!

2. Lancôme Hypnôse Drama I really love this mascara because it really adds volume to your lashes, making them pop.  It makes them look very thick and full, making your eyes standout.

3. Clinique High Impact Mascara  I feel like this mascara stands out against the others texture wise.  The consistency of the formula appears to be a little more wet.  I usually don't love mascaras that have a wet consistency but this one does great things! Like the Lancôme mascara, this one definitely makes your eye lashes pop because it defines them very nicely.

4. Buxom Lash This mascara has been one of my favorites for a very long time now.  A lot of my friends use this one too! The brush on this mascara is very big, not as big as the brush on the Smashbox mascara, but still bigger than the others! It definitely makes your eyelashes appear longer and fuller, which I love!

5. Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara This urban decay mascara is awesome for separating  and defining your lashes! Even if I use a different mascara and end up with some clumps, i'll go over my lashes a couple times with this one and they all go away! (It can be a lifesaver sometimes!). When I use this mascara I don't even bother curling my lashes because the wand and formula form and hold the curl all day long!

All of the mascaras mentioned specialize in doing different things for your lashes.  But, what if you want it all? Well, then i'd say use them all! I don't necessarily recommend using all 5 at once, but layering 2 or 3 can do wonders for your lashes! I hardly ever wear just one mascara! Building up your eyelashes can make them look very long and very volumized!

Happy Friday! :)
