Photo: MCV Photo
It's really too bad that no mascara will ever come with the words, "For your clumpiest lashes, ever!" Because, honestly, we'd buy that in a heartbeat. In our minds, clumpy eyelashes aren't something to be avoided — they're to be created, as often as possible.
Of course, we're not the only ones on #TeamClumpyMascara. This look has appeared on many a badass babe throughout history, from Twiggy to Kim Kardashian. So, to honor their legacies, we've rounded up our favorite spidery lashes of all time.
Click through, and let us know who your favorite is.
