Although there are a lot of steps in applying makeup, I would arguably say that the one thing that makes all the difference is mascara. With a finishing touch, mascara is often used to enhance your eyelashes by adding length and volume. Sometimes, however, the traditional mascara just isn’t enough to bring out the full beauty of your eyelashes. Here are some of Korea’s coolest and most unique mascaras that will be just what you need for a fuller, longer, and more dramatic eye look.
Best For: Volume Control
The Etude House 3 Step Volumecara is a product in which you can control the amount of volume that you want added to your eyelashes. By simply twisting the top of the product, you are able to control the amount of product that will be on your mascara brush in order to choose how much glamor you want to add to your lashes. This mascara is definitely one of my favorites because of it’s super cool design. I love carrying it around especially when I go traveling because I only need one mascara in my makeup pouch to create so many different looks. For a simple daily routine, I go to level 1 of the mascara, and for a crazy girl’s night out, pump up the volume of the mascara to level 3! More info here.
Best For: Long Lashes
This product is the perfect mascara for those with short and stubby eyelashes. I, like many people of the Asian population, am cursed with very short lashes that are barely visible. However, this mascara is one of my holy grail products. The mascara itself has fibers included in the product; therefore, when you coat the mascara onto your lashes, it extends your lashes to unbelievable lengths! The super thin mascara head makes it easy to coat even the shortest eyelashes, transforming them into long and sexy eyelashes. Not only is the small brush super easy to use, the product itself is extremely waterproof, perfect for the hot summer days by the pool. More info here.
Best For: A pop of color.
The traditional mascara is usually black or maybe even dark brown for a more natural look. Who says they want to be traditional? Etude House’s newest launch of the Lash Perm Curl Fix comes in burgundy and hot pink! The perfect colors for a statement eye makeup. Not only are the colors super cute and festive, the mascara itself comes with a jelly dome brush that makes application easy because it has two sides with different bristles. Also, the product itself is included with the Etude House mascara fixer, which will hold your eyelash curls in place all day! More info here.
Best For: Extremely voluminous lashes
The Holika Holika Magic Pole Mascara comes with a extremely unique brush. In my opinion, it has the most handy- dandy brush of all Korean mascaras. The end of the brush has a sponge ball powder that will coat your lashes without having them clump together. The sponge at the tip of the brush allows for you to give your outer lashes an extra pump of volume, making your lashes appear as if they are falsies! Also, the mascara itself has a special formula that will make your lashes curl upward without an eyelash curler! Truly is a “magical” mascara! More info here.
Best For: Lower lashline
The Saem 90 Degree Mascara is unique because, like in its name, the brush head tilts at a 90 degree angle. The unique shape of the brush head makes it easier to get the inner and outer corners of your eyelashes along with the lower lash line. Also… If G-Dragon uses it, the more the reason to buy it!
