Lashes are arguably the most alluring feature of a visage. They emphasize one’s eye shape and make for a romantic gaze. If you have naturally thick lashes, you can go without wearing eye makeup and still look as beautiful as an on-screen movie star. Unfortunately, not all of us have Elizabeth Taylor’s gene code of twin set lash lines and so we are grateful for lash-enhancing mascaras being available to us. Mascaras have come a long way from being formulated to just add pigment to the lashes; there are so many more finishes available today. We take a look at some of the most iconic lash effects you can achieve with these amazing mascaras that many swear by.

The Best Mascaras To Attain Different Lash Effects

Damn Curl! 

The MyGlamm Twist It Mascara is highly pigmented and volumises the lashes with just one coat. The curved mascara wand allows for an effortless curling effect which contributes to the dramatic results you get from using this product.

Such A Doll

Ever envied those perfectly fanned eyelashes that are every so often seen on barbie dolls. Well, you can claim that effect for yourself with the Lancome Hypnôse Doll Eyes Mascara. It offers a gorgeous curl and fans out lashes with ease. There are absolutely no signs of clumpiness with this one. The nylon powder in this formula also offers a gorgeous volumising effect making it perfect for enhancing otherwise thin lashes.

Straight Up Striking

If lengthening your lashes is what you are after, the Estée Lauder Sumptuous Rebel Length + Lift Mascara will deliver on that sharp look that is so avant-garde. The sleek brush offers an even coating of mascara to separate the lashes and offer a thickened and elongated effect.

Runway Worthy

For lash lines that are always à la mode put your faith in the Givenchy Noir Couture 4 In 1 Mascara. The unique tri-spherical brush allows you to create different lash effects and makes your lashes instantly volumised, lengthened, and curled. It also has nourishing ingredients like purified beeswax and copernicia extract.

Low Rise

Ever figured out how to properly apply mascara to your lower lash lines without messing up your makeup? You don’t have to worry about that with this product. The PIXI Lower Lash Mascara has a super fine applicator brush to define those tiny lashes perfectly. It’s infused with vitamin E and is also water-resistant once applied.

Dual Action

If you want to ensure your lashes are prepped and defined like it’s the centre of your look, choose the L’Oréal Paris False Lash Superstar Mascara. The mascara comes with a lash primer on one end of the tube and black mascara on the other tube end. Layering coats of mascara is made super easy with this product and the volume is intense.

Couture Effect

If you are looking to recreate that spidery lash look runway models have been rocking this season, try the Kiko Milano Lengthening Top Coat Mascara. You can use it over your regular mascara and be sure to enjoy a lengthening effect that is unmatched. Infused with rayon fibres that latch on without clumping your mascara, this product needs to be applied to the tips of your lashes and they offer 72 per cent more length. The spherical brush is what enables seamless application of this product.
