Mascaras are an essential cosmetic product that adds definition to the areas of the eyelashes. Not everyone is blessed with a long, thick and gorgeous set of eyelashes, some have a really fine and thin set of eyelashes that are almost non-existent. Its cosmetic formulation contains chemical pigments, wax, polymers, and preservatives that enhance the eyelashes' length, thickness, and colour. Mascaras essentially accentuate the eyelashes to highlight the areas of the eyes even more. These darkening and lengthening formulas usually come in opaque tubes with a dedicated applicator brush. Areas around the eyes tend to sweat out which causes makeup smearing, that is why modern mascaras are now formulated with waterproof ingredients. Different types of eyelashes will require a specific mascara that will meet their needs. Volumising and lengthening mascaras are well suited for people with sparse lashes, while a curling formulation is great for people with long eyelashes. 

Mascaras are more economical, easier to apply and an overall better option for improving the appearance of eyelashes in comparison with false eyelashes. Most mascaras already have a curling formulation that omits using an eyelash curler. Brands for most mascaras have made mascaras easier to use for beginners and safe for people with sensitive skin. Choosing the right quality, formulation, and consistency of mascaras at a reasonable price is important for first-time users. Some brands can impose a hefty price but don’t deliver when it comes to the real-life application of the mascaras. Affordable mascaras may be much more effective than expensive ones that can be a staple everyday mascara without breaking the bank.

What are the things to consider in choosing the best mascara?

There are a few things that should be considered when selecting the best mascara. One should evaluate the type of eyelashes that they have between sparse, long, uneven, and brittle pairs of eyelashes.  A short set of lashes would require mascaras that have a  lengthening feature like polymer fibres that acts as extensions. An already long eyelash would be beautiful with a curling mascara formula that naturally bends through lashes and curls them up with a special applicator wand. People with jagged lashes that may be caused by brittleness or damage from previous extensions should go for mascaras that have nourishing ingredients like natural oil extracts or revitalising solutions. Mascaras also come in different formulas, and people with sensitive skin or those wearing some contact lenses should opt for mascaras that are hypoallergenic and ophthalmologist approved. 

What are the Benefits of Using mascara?

Listed below are the benefits of using mascara

  • Mascaras primarily adds length and thickness to the eyelashes, most especially those that are noticeably sparse and short. 
  • Most mascaras have deeply pigmented formulas that naturally highlight the lashes and bring out their dimension. This will help accentuate the lashes and bring out the eyes more.
  • In comparison with using lash extensions, mascaras are easier to apply, and remove and can pose less damage to the lashes. 
  • Formulations have now improved and don't stop at just lengthening the lashes. Mascaras have included nourishing ingredients like plant oil extracts that help protect the layers of the hair and keep them healthy. 
  • Curling, lengthening and thickening of the eyelashes is an aesthetic in itself to the overall makeup look. 

How long does mascara last?

A tube of mascara can last between three and six months upon opening. It is recommended especially for people who use it every day to be more mindful with using their mascaras. Using mascaras every day will expose the product to air, where contamination would occur. Contaminated mascara brush and solutions could lead to detrimental eye infections that should be avoided. It would be helpful to have properly cleaned eyelashes before applying mascara to avoid product contamination. 

What mascara do celebrities use?

Most celebrities use ultra volumising and waterproof mascaras for several events and occasions. People who are constantly under the limelight are required to have gorgeous, intact eyelashes. Mascaras with volumising formula bring out the eyes more and therefore captures the eyes in front of the camera. Celebrities are usually in the presence of multiple light setups that can melt out some makeup. Having a waterproof mascara should be helpful for celebrities in humid areas to withstand extreme heat and moisture. Mascaras that can go on for hours would be helpful for celebrities who work round the clock without the need for reapplication. 

Can mascara make your eyelashes grow?

Yes, some formulations of eyelashes have infused ingredients that facilitate lengthening of the eyelashes. There are brands that incorporate lash serums in their formulation that grows sparse and short lashes in incremental lengths. These lash serum treatments can get really pricey but pose a permanent solution with eyelashes. There are conditioning and nourishing ingredients that nourish the hair that helps thicken them and grow healthier. 

Is it easy to apply mascara?

Yes, the application of mascaras has become easier with the help of a variety of applicator brushes that come with the mascara tube. It doesn't require the necessary skill for one to apply mascara, as long as the applicator can adequately get enough formula and apply it evenly on the eyelashes. However, it is still necessary to have idea on how to apply mascara. A shorter bristled applicator wand would be very useful for shorter areas of lashes, most especially the lower eyelashes. Some brands have produced conical-shaped, angular brush, and uneven bristle that efficiently puts on the mascara product. 

Are there different ways to apply mascara?

No, there aren’t different ways to apply mascaras. One can simply start at any portion of the lashes as long as it evenly distributes from the root to tips and in between eyelashes. Just make sure to have just enough product on the applicator brush to avoid clumping. Swipe any excess product on the mascara tube, but most applicator brushes have a precision design that delivers just enough mascara.
