The Best Eyelash Toolkit

When it comes to lashes bigger is always better, but with so many options out there the mascara world can be a little hard to navigate. To help you out, we've rounded up some of our favorite lash-boosting products, guaranteed to give you big, beautiful eyelashes sans the frustration (because clumpy is never cute).


‘The Makeup’ Eyelash Curler by Shiseido



"One of my favorite makeup artists turned me on to this model. I love how gentle and effective it is; you don't need much pressure to get an amazing curl."

It’s a Tie: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler



"I love my classic Shu Uemura eyelash curler. It's light but has just the right power and padding to give my stick-straight eyelashes a boost up. It seems to curl and not kink the eyelashes so they're ready for mascara."

-Tara Bench, Ladies Home Journal Food and Entertaining Director

ELF Mechanical Eyelash Curler



"I love this super affordable lash curler from ELF for several reasons: The handle is easy to grab and it never feels like it's going to slip sideways while I'm using it. Also the pad that your lashes will rest on is slightly squishy, allowing for a more effective curl when you clamp down."

"I don't leave the house without mascara. I've tried a billion different kinds—some really prestigious brands, the ones with fancy brushes, etc. But my all-time favorite is from the drugstore: Maybelline Full 'N Soft. I swear by it (so does my sister) and I've never tried another mascara that I've liked more."
