My Top 5 Mascaras for Big Bold Lashes

I'm a big eye fan. When it comes to my makeup I usually try to play up my eyes and natural lashes, so a good mascara is a must in my beauty routine.  

Amanda Davila

Mascara was the first beauty product I ever used in my life.

I remember back in the day, circa 2005, I would borrow my mom's mascara when I was going out with my friends or had a party. Putting on mascara made me feel all dolled up and made my eyes look huge, so it became a beauty staple for me. Keep in mind I didn't wear foundation or bronzer until a couple of years ago, so playing up my lashes was my go-to beauty look!

Today I can *proudly* say I don't have to borrow my mom's anymore and, being the beauty junkie I am, I have tried many many different ones, from drugstore to high end. And from all the different ones I've tried, I have found myself buying these 5 again and again!

 

So without more chitchat, here's my top 5 mascaras


Best for Thickness

This mascara makes my lashes look like falsies with just one coat. Super thick and fanned out, this formula is unbelievably amazing!

This one is by far Maybelline’s best mascara out there! It makes my lashes incredibly thick and long, it’s the blackest black I’ve ever seen and it doesn’t smudge.

The little spikey ball on the tip of wand makes it so much easier to reach the corners of the eyes and the tiny bottom lashes too!

The curved wand on the wand helps hold the curl of the lashes, plus it’s a very thick formula, so it makes lashes look great!
