In the beauty world, they say nothing is unachievable if you have the right tools. Want a flawless base? You have the good ol‘ beauty blender. Want fuller lips? Lip plumbers and liners will come to your rescue… What about when it comes to enhancing those eyelashes to give you a wider and fuller look? While a lash curler, a pre-mascara application, is the preferred and sure-shot way, there’s also another important key to this shindig—Choosing the right wand for you!

Selecting the right mascara wand can be beneficial to you in many ways. Your eyelashes can be more enhanced, your eyes can look and feel more open, and your overall eye makeup look can definitely stand out from the crowd! But before you purchase the appropriate tube, here’s what you need to know about different kinds of mascara wands designed for different looks.

The Straight Bristle Wand: For a basic look

If you’re looking for a natural but fluttery effect, a traditional, straight-bristled brush is perfect for you. It adds just the right amount of length and fullness to the lashes.

The Curved Bristle Wand: For a curled look

Because of the shapely curved bristles of this wand, one can get the most curved and defined lashes. Since the bristles are designed to have a slight curl to them, it follows the natural shape of one’s real lash to add further lift. You might not even need to use a lash curler before the mascara application with this one.

The Nylon Bristle Wand: For a voluminous look

It’s the most basic kind of wand you’ll find. The nylon bristles in this wand are bunched and styled close together to get most of the product deposited on the eyelashes. They help lift and add volume to the lashes.

Want clump-free lashes? A plastic bristle wand is a great choice! Thin and finely shaped bristles separate and coat each lash to the maximum, resulting in a widely-opened and dramatic looking eye.
