You would think that getting smooth, even mascara would be easy, but it’s actually a challenge. If you want that big lash look, you usually get a side of flaking and clumping. Brittle mascaras that clump are annoying to fix. You end up spending more time fixing your lashes than you did applying your few coats of mascara. That’s one of the reasons why so many people are turning to lash extensions, but those are an expensive habit. There are good mascaras out there. We searched for the best volumizing mascara and came up with a few reliable options for you.
As a hard-working mom, you deserve a mascara that won’t let you down. Sometimes, it might be the only makeup you put on, so you want it to highlight one of your best features—your eyes—instead of distracting with smudged mascara. Among the three mascaras we picked, one offers 10 times the volume of your natural lashes, while another comes in multiple colors. Not everyone loves black mascara after all. Brown mascara works better with certain skin tones and eye colors. All of our picks promise to give you big, smooth lashes.
