19 February marks National Lash Day and we are more than excited for it. This is a day for acknowledging all types of eyelashes, real or false, and to promote the importance of lash health. As the anatomical feature that keeps the eye safe while enhancing our look, it’s safe to say eyelashes can sometimes be swept under the rug.
There’s no better feeling than finding a go-to mascara that works perfectly with your lashes… other than seeing your lashes grow thicker and fuller over time. To celebrate the occasion, we’re helping you upgrade your lash routine and health with the best mascaras and treatments for the job. Ahead are the volumizing virtuosos, lengthening sensations, and nourishing saviors you need, plus bonus picks to complement your lash look and complete your makeup routine. Scroll to get started.
The ISEHAN Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara Advanced Film changes the whole mascara game. Its formula includes 5mm fibers to elongate the lashes and give a false lash effect, as well as a shape-sustaining polymer component to keep lashes curled all day long. A J-beauty cult favorite, this mascara is highly resistant to water, sweat, sebum, and rubbing, so you get to choose when you want to take it off.
Pro tip: couple this mascara with the MEMEBOX I’M MEME Multi Cube to nail your everyday makeup routine. This adorable mini palette comes complete with 4 versatile eyeshadow shades and a blush that gets your look complete in a cinch.
Keep eyelashes flexible and strong with the Etude House My Lash Serum, a daily serum to condition the lashes and reduce fallout. It features Biotin, a key component that supports hair health and strength, alongside Ginger Root extract to soothe worn-out lashes. This clear, non-sticky formula is meant to be applied at the end of your night routine to care for your lashes overnight, allowing you to wake up with healthier lashes.
A smudge-proof mascara that washes off effortlessly with warm water? It sounds too good to be true, but the heimish Dailism Smudge Stop Mascara is living proof that you can get the best of both worlds. This tubing mascara contains water-resistant vegetable wax polymers to give the lashes lift and volume without smudging or flaking. Because it can be washed off with water, this minimizes the damage done to lashes and is a good option for anyone with weaker lashes or sensitive eyes.
Pro tip: for an eye look worthy of the year’s hottest idol comeback, grab the Twinkle Pop Glittering Eye Stick to douse the lids with sparkle. This waterproof, fallout-free eyeshadow stick formula contains glitters that shine at all angles, serving you ulzzang glam to go with your alluring lashes.
Find that your lashes won’t stay curled? The Etude House Dr. Mascara Fixer For Perfect Lash will change all that. A transparent fixing gel enriched with Soybean extract, it serves as a mascara primer to hold the lashes in a curl and prevent them from drooping once mascara is applied. Users can confirm their lashes stay in place throughout the day, and even noticed their mascara stopped smudging when wearing this.
Make thin, sparse lashes a thing of the past with the CLIO - Kill Lash Superproof Mascara. The name says it all: this long-wearing formula includes a wax component to create sky-high, defined lashes that don’t budge, providing major volume when built up. It’s waterproof and maintains the lashes in good form through rain, sweat, and tears (speaking from experience), sans smudging, flaking or drooping.
Pro tip: pair this mascara with the peripera Ink Thin Thin Brush Liner to create a classic cat eye look, using the liner to create a sharp wing while concentrating the mascara on the outer edge of the eye to fan out the lashes and elongate the eye. Fierce!
If you desire longer, thicker lashes, consider incorporating the Romand Han All Lash Serum into your daily routine. Laced with Black Bean extract, Peptide, and a proprietary Hyalonbale ingredient, it utilizes a 2-step system to increase the nutritional supply of the lashes and enhance their health. This can also be used as a brow or hairline treatment for any areas that require a boost of nutrition.
The MISSHA 4D Mascara is an affordable gem that we have to spotlight. A total steal coming in at under $5, this mascara features bristles assembled in a square shape to ensure the brush catches every single lash. It volumizes the lashes with a soft texture, providing a feathery, natural appearance. Layer it on with ease of mind - this formula doesn’t clump and it keeps lashes separated.
Pro tip: keep everyone on their toes with a graphic liner look and fluttery lashes to switch up your daily makeup. The CLIO Superproof Pen Liner draws precise strokes with its ultra-fine sponge tip, dispensing ink seamlessly for even lines that don’t smudge, thanks to the formula's film former component.
Constantly on the go? You need the Kaja Wink Lash Trio in your makeup bag. This 3-in-1 product includes a lash primer/clear gel, volumizing mascara, and lengthening mascara that can be applied individually, or layered to your liking for a customized lash look that falsies can’t even compare with. The trio is joined by a magnet that lets you unlatch your chosen formulas, then reassemble them back together after use.
If you desire longer, thicker lashes, consider incorporating the ISEHAN Kiss Me - Heroine Make Speedy Mascara Remover into your daily routine. Laced with Black Bean extract, Peptide, and a proprietary Hyalonbale ingredient, it utilizes a 2-step system to increase the nutritional supply of the lashes and enhance their health. This can also be used as a brow or hairline treatment for any areas that require a boost of nutrition.
