Asian Makeup: How to Combat Straight Eyelashes
Whether you are Asian, Eastern European, or simply have lashes that refuse to curl -- these tips will change your life
Tip 7: And make sure it's waterproofThe most common complaint among women with straight lashes is how mascara smears onto their lower eyelids. The solution? Wear waterproof. "If it's smearing you're using the wrong [mascara]. You just have to wear waterproof," says Babaian. Waterproof formulas are lighter and have a drier consistency, so the lashes freeze in the curl quicker, which is key in maintaining the curl. Babaian recommends Cle De Peau Beaute THE Mascara, $50, but for a cheaper alternative, try Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof Mascara in Very Black, $5.99, which was also one of our reader's 12 best drugstore mascaras.
