Finding the Best Mascara Wand for Your Lashes

With so many wand shapes to choose from, picking out the perfect mascara can be a bit of a challenge.

Mascara wands come in different shapes - hourglass, spherical and wavy, does it really matter which one you choose?

Wand shapes do make a difference, you can take the same mascara and apply it with different brushes and get completely different looks.

The formula has a huge impact as well because the formula and the brush have to work together, you wouldn’t want a formula that lengthens but a brush that gives volume.

If you want a quick easy basic application of only using one or two coats of mascara, use a wand that deposits a lot product so that those few swipes will completely coat your lashes.

Choose a wand with a wide core this will pick up a lot of mascara and delivers it to the base of the lashes.
