With hundreds of mascaras flooding the market, finding one that’s perfect for you can be a long and tedious process. Since Asian lashes tend to be shorter, you should try to use mascaras that come with a smaller brush applicator as it’ll be easier to reach even the tiniest lashes at the inner and outer corners of your eyes.
Our lashes can also be sparse, so if you want a fuller, more dramatic effect, it’d be good to give volumising formulas a go. Just remember to remove excess product from the brush or to separate your lashes with a lash comb to avoid clumps. For maximum impact, prep your lashes with a lash primer.
It’s a good idea to pick out mascaras that have a curved lash applicator as they give pin-straight lashes an added lift, and if you choose those containing unique polymers, you can be sure that they’ll lock in the curl of your lashes without weighing them down.
