Limp. Straight. Droopy. These are all the words I'd use to describe my lashes after trying a new mascara that fails to hold a curl. Because of my short, downward-pointing lashes, I use curling formulas almost exclusively. Why? Because a pair of lifted lashes is the easiest way to fake eight hours of sleep — and I need a strong formula to keep mine up all day.
Why not just use a lash curler, you ask? I do, but think of these as the firm-hold hairspray that sets those crimps in place. Check out my favorites, ahead.
