Salon Sanity’s Take on How to Choose the Right Mascara?
Did you ever realize how a little mascara can change the whole look of your makeup application? Are you tired a buying mascaras that don’t work? Are you confused about what type of brush or type of mascara to use? No worries because the Salon Sanity Team has done the research for you.
Allure magazine recently did an article on this very topic. According to makeup artist and Lazy Perfection founder Jenny Patinkin, not all wands are created equal. "Brushes come in lots of shapes and sizes, pick up different amounts of mascara, have bristles that are more or less densely packed, or have varying degrees of flex. The results you get absolutely depends on the wand.
But the most important part of finding your mascara-wand soul mate might surprise you: "The size of your wand should make sense for the size of your eyes," Patinkin says. "I like a wand that's medium size, densely packed, and has a pointed tip, because it works on all eye shapes and sizes."
For volume on your lashes then a bigger fuller brush works best. If your looking to extend the length of your lashes then a thin brush allows you to focus on building the length. If you like your lashes to be separated then you might opt for a tapered brush.
Here are some of Salon Sanity’s Teams favorite and why:
Cristina, Jamie, Haley, Brandi and Holly all like “Urban Decay Perversion or Better than Sex. ($11-$23 depending on size). Brandi loves this because “ It adds length and fullness without looking like spider lashes.”
Jennifer’s favorite is Christian Dior’s Blackout. “This mascara gives me thick, long black lashes.” ($17-$28)
Cheryl’s favorite is Voluminous Million Lashes, it’s affordable and does wonders! ($5.49)
Keyla’s pick is L’Oreal telescopic because it's like a knock off Better Than Sex ($9.99)
Alesha likes Maybelline Falsies Push Up Angel because it separates the lashes, plumps and lengthens. ($7.49)
All of these mascaras have a lot in common such as long lasting, fullness, volume, length and increasing thickness. To learn more about makeup trends you can always contact one of our Makeup Artist here at Salon Sanity.
