Types Of Mascara Wands

If applying mascara is your fave part of doing makeup, then you're in for a treat as today, we're discussing what kind of mascara wand should you be choosing. After all, lashes make everything better!

C-Shaped Wands

Meant For: Curling

Curved mascara wands are amazing to curl our natural lashes. Its concave, C-shaped wand helps distribute the product evenly on the lashes while curling them a little. After you're done with your eye makeup, apply mascara gently in an upward position. Just use an eyelash curler for that extra zhush and then apply your mascara and voila, an instant lash lift!

You can also apply it only on your lower lashes to make your eyes look bigger!

Thick Wands

Meant For: Adding Volume

Thick AF mascara wands are meant for one thing, adding that va-va-volume to your lashes to make 'em look fuller! The mascara bristles are usually densely packed so that they can collect the maximum product and coat your lashes with it.

The formula usually is thicker than most mascaras yet creamy so that your lashes don't look like spider legs when you use it. You can also use it on your brows to define them.

Long/ Spiral Wands

Meant For: Lengthening

Think of long wand mascaras as a comb for your lashes. They help separate and define your lashes, while adding length to your lashes. The mascara wands are usually spiraled or curvy which allows the lashes to curl and look 'longer' as you apply them.

So if you've got long lashes on your mind, then choosing a lengthening mascara is what you should do.
