11 Volumizing Mascaras That Are Basically Lash Extensions in a Tube
You don't need to have expert false lash application skills to achieve a thick, long, dramatic lash look. The right volumizing mascara will do just that — no glue required. It will ensure your lashes look anything but subtle. We asked professional makeup artists and Allure editors to share their must-have volumizing mascara picks. Plus, we have a quick application tip for you to help your lashes look as voluminous as possible. Before swiping the wand all the way through your lashes, start by wiggling the bristles into the base of your lashes and lightly stamping the mascara against your waterline. This simple step will help even the sparsest fringe look instantly fuller by filling in the gaps between your lashes. Afterward, you can proceed with your usual mascara application technique. Keep scrolling to discover 12 of the best volumizing mascaras to practice that tip with.
