When it comes to a quick beauty upgrade, nothing beats mascara. When you’re too young for or uninterested in the million-step process of foundation, powder, blush, eyeshadow, lipstick, etc., you can always throw on a coat or two of mascara and change your entire face. Why? It simply opens your eyes and gives you some boldness and definition right where people look. Your whole face looks brighter!
Of course, there are many mascaras on the market and they all help achieve different results. The best thing to do is to experiment with different options to get the best effect for your eyelashes. You know we think you’re beautiful as you are, but when you do decide to wear some mascara, here are five of our favorites for you to try!
CoverGirl is a brand known and respected for their inexpensive and time tested beauty products. Their Clumps Be Gone: CoverGirl LashBlast Clump Crusher mascara provides even coverage and a deep black shade. (Drugstore.com, $7)
Looking to add a little sparkle to your lashes? While we can’t exactly recommend L’Oreal’s Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara for the classroom or church, it’s an awesome choice for a night out with friends or a special event (prom, anyone?). (Walmart, $7)
If you have super thin lashes or just know that you like your mascara thick–like, really thick–then this is your pick! The Almay Intense i-Color Voluminizing Mascara also comes in a few colors, including purple and brown. (Soap.com, $8)
Maybe you don’t care so much about darkness or thickness. Is fullness your concern? Maybelline Full ‘N Soft Mascara has a super thick round brush that hits all your lashes evenly and really pumps them out. (Drugstore.com, $7)
Mascara definitely ranges in price, and the while the four previous mascaras (all under $10) are awesome, if you’re willing and able to spend a bit more on an extraordinary tube, make it this one. It’s a classic favorite–Lancome Definicils. The iconic, award-winning lash formula provides the ultimate in lash separation and cleanness. (lancome-usa.com, $27)
