Have you ever pulled your mascara wand out of the tube and noticed they aren’t all shaped the same? Take a look at your favorite redhead mascaras and compare them to ones you don’t gravitate to as much. The wand shape can make a big difference in application and how it makes your lashes look.
Using a brush without contours can leave the inner lashes looking and feeling heavy and they may potentially be messy during application. Even if you love the formula of mascara, having the wrong brush can lead to bad application and overall a bad experience. If you like applying lower-lash mascara, you also want something with either a curve or a pointed tip. This allows for more precision when applying to those small thin lashes.
Preferred: Curvy Brush
Most lashes are smaller and shorter towards the inner corner of the eye and elongate as you move toward the center of the eye. If you want to keep an elongated look and really bring out the length and volume of your lashes, you need something more contoured. When a lash brush has curves, it allows the mascara to be dispersed lighter in the inner corners and more heavily in the middle to outer corners where we want that dramatic sweep.
Thick, curvy mascara wands tend to be made with synthetic fibers that help to plump up your lashes and give them a ton of volume. Finally Have Lashes is a clean formula and optimized with an hourglass, curvy brush to glide through lashes, separating and coating them with a classic, deep red shade all redheads can rock.
Long mascara wands that have short, spaced-out bristles will help define and separate lashes. If you’ve got thicker lashes and want to give them length, this wand’s your perfect match.
Word on the street is the shape makes it easier to grab each individual lash, big and small, which is perfect if you have smaller eyes or shorter lashes. The only downside is how detail-oriented a process it can be but the upside is it’s fun to use.
This shape is a solid second next to a curved brush. They fight clumps like a superhero and the plastic bristles distribute the mascara evenly, highlighting the natural qualities that make your lashes fabulous to begin with.
