How to Choose the Right Mascara

1. Identify the type. Japanese cosmetic brands produce many types of mascara to cater toward different eyelashes. You can achieve length, volume, and curls by finding the perfect mascara for you. If you want your eyelashes to look fuller and longer, look for mascara that focuses on enhancing the length and volume.

The fibre in the mascara is designed to adhere to the eyelashes to lengthen them, by making the lashes look longer, you can enhance the vertical lines around the eyes, which also leads to the appearance of bigger eyes. There is also a “curl type”, which is formulated to harden once you apply to make it easier for your eyelashes to stay curled and upwards throughout the day. 

2. Observe the brushes. There are various types of mascara brushes that serve different purposes. You can choose a brush shape that is easy for you to apply, which will make it easier to achieve your ideal eyelashes. The “arch type” is characterised by its curved shape, making it easier to match the curve around the eyes. The “comb type” is effective in separating your eyelashes without lumps and it is suitable for beginners.  

3. Look at the formula. You can also choose a “waterproof type” , which has a water resistance formula, suitable for everyday use, especially during summer days. “Smudge proof type” is an oil resistance formula. It prevents your eyelashes from collapsing due to sebum. Suitable for people with oily skin and prone to sebum.
