It’s time to put that pesky eyelash curler down. It kind of looks vaguely sinister, like a guillotine, anyway. Instead of taking time to do that extra step of curling your eyelashes, you can get mascara that will do all of the hard work for you. You’re likely curling your eyelashes so you can put mascara on them anyway, so just cut out the middleman—your eyelash curler. We all want to channel Ariana Grande and Kacey Musgraves and get those show-stopping curly eyelashes, but there’s a much easier way. 

There are mascaras out there that are designed to lift and curl your eyelashes. Instead of a straight bristled brush that only adds mascara to your lashes, mascara brushes can be curled to one side. These brushes better conform to your lash line and allow you to separate your eyelashes at the roots, which means that you won’t look be plagued by mascara clumps and stuck-together lashes. 

We rounded up the best curling mascaras for you. These top-of-the-line mascaras promise to add lift while giving you your most defined lashes yet. One of our picks claims to boost the thickness of your lashes five-fold, which will give you a fuller look. While another is waterproof, so it can “Rain on You,” and you won’t suffer from runny mascara.
