If there’s one day you’d love to rock the lushest lashes on the planet, it’s probably your wedding day. After all, long, curled, fanned-out lashes not only look lovely in person but pop in photos, and you’ll be looking at your wedding photos for the rest of your life!

That said, not every girl is a false lash girl. Which begs a question as old as time (or at least the last century and a half): What is the best mascara? The answer: Well, that depends on what you’re looking for. Today, mascaras are designed to cater to a long list of desires: longer lashes, curly lashes and thicker lashes, to start. You may have sensitive eyes and need a hypoallergenic mascara, or you may want to try a fiber mascara, which can make it look like you’re wearing falsies. Or you may be the kind of girl who likes to stick to organic makeup, and at long last, there are finally great natural mascaras for you, too!

Best Lengthening Mascara.

One thing almost all of us would love our lashes to be? Longer! And plenty of the best mascaras can help them be just that. The best of the best when it comes to lengthening mascaras: Dior’s Diorshow Mascara and L’Oreal Paris’ Telescopic Original Mascara. Both formulas boast major lengthening effects (Telescopic by as much as 60 percent!) while also separating the lashes for a clump-free finish.
