Time was, mascara wands were all one and the same. Luckily, the new guard (which are exclusive to Sephora, btw) come in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit your every whim.
GIVENCHY NOIR COUTURE
THE WAND: A unique, triple-sphere shape lets this brush lengthen all lashes.
THE LOOK: Dramatic
THE TIP: Draw the wand outward instead of upward for a doe-eyed effect.
BUXOM SCULPTED LASH MASCARA
THE WAND: The S-shaped brush gets to every last hair and allows you to style your lashes in a variety of ways.
THE LOOK: Fanned out
THE TIP: Sweep through lashes with the tip down while slowly rotating the brush—then use the tip for inner and bottom lashes, if desired.
LANCÔME HYPNÔSE STAR MASCARA
THE WAND: The asymmetrical brush has one flat side to build up the roots of lashes and one round side to separate and curl.
THE LOOK: False lash-like
THE TIP: After you’ve done a coat all over with the flat side, start with the round side at the center of the lashes, then the outside corners, then the inside.
