Up Your Lash Game: Dallas Fashion Bloggers Pick Their 8 Favorite Mascaras

Lashes rule these days. Extension lash bars are popping up on every corner. Beauty brands are leaning on brush technology and updated formulas to create lengthening looks that create a breeze when you blink. But if you’re not sure which of the myriad tubes is the one for you, maybe take a tip from one of Dallas’ blogging crew. With five girls and their eight recommendations, one of them might become your new go-to.


Her magic wand: Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes and Burberry Effortless mascara
“I like the Burberry because it makes your eyelashes thick and Twiggy-like. Then I use the Colossal Cat Eyes to separate and flatter my eyeshape. They’re both Holy Grail products for me.”


MERRITT BECK, The Style Scribe
Her magic wand: Cover Girl Clump Crusher by LashBlast
“I’m always jumping around, but right now my current favorite is Cover Girl Clump Crusher. I like to layer my mascara and can layer Clump Crusher three to four times without it getting goopy.”


Her magic wand: Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant
“My lashes aren’t the longest or the thickest and this honestly makes them look like I invested in extensions. It’s the perfect mix of lengthening and thickening.”


AMY HAVINS, Dallas Wardrobe
Her magic wand: YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll and L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara
“I love this mascara [YSL Babydoll] because it has a thin wand that really allows you to lift, separate and define your lashes. L’Oreal Voluminous mascara has been in my beauty bag for as long as I can remember. It does a great job really making a more bold eye, which is often what I go for in the evenings.”


Her magic wand: Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum and Bare Escentuals Lash Domination 10-In-1 Volumizing Mascara
“I love how natural yet powerful this combo is for day to night. I love big lashes but don’t like clump, so this combo gives me everything I want: a wide eye, long black lashes, and a bit of curl, while keeping the lashes natural looking.”
