Like fashion trends, most beauty crazes have their time in the spotlight then fade into the background. However, when it comes to the eye makeup world, one look continues to reign supreme—long lashes. You may not be blessed with the gift of a long fringe, but there is one makeup essential that can help you out without relying on false lashes. This is where lengthening mascara comes in.

A few quick coats of the best mascara for length in the morning, and long lashes can be yours until it’s time to wash off your makeup at night. There isn’t a singular best mascara for long lashes—there are nearly endless options that can add length to your fringe. Ahead, we’re sharing all of our best lengthening mascaras (available at the drugstore!) to help you achieve long, luscious lashes.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #1: L’ORÉAL PARIS TELESCOPIC ORIGINAL MASCARA

It’s fair to say that most mascaras put an emphasis on volume, which makes it all the more exciting when you find one focused on length. The L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Mascara fits the bill—in a stroke, the precise brush visibly lengthens the appearance of lashes.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #2: L’ORÉAL PARIS TELESCOPIC ORIGINAL WATERPROOF LENGTHENING MASCARA

When you want instant volume and length, without running the risk of smearing or smudging, reach for this waterproof mascara. The L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Original Waterproof Lengthening Mascara is uniquely formulated to provide intense length and up to 50% longer lashes. Plus, it won’t budge in the face of sweat or even a dip in the pool.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #3: L’ORÉAL PARIS VOLUMINOUS LASH PARADISE MASCARA

If the millennial pink tube isn’t enough to lure you in, the lash-lengthening effects of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara should be. The soft wavy brush has more than 200 bristles and is paired with a smooth glide formula to provide lush length and an ultra-sensorial application.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #4: L’ORÉAL PARIS VOLUMINOUS X FIBER MASCARA

There’s another type of mascara formula you may not have tried—but you should. Fiber mascaras use tiny fibers to boost your lashes, increasing volume and length. The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara is a perfect example; the fiber-infused mascara formula coats lashes, leaving them with the appearance of extreme length, volume, and depth.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #5: L’ORÉAL PARIS UNLIMITED LASH LIFTING AND LENGTHENING MASCARA

Sometimes when you’re striving for maximum lash length, it can be a real pain to try and reach the inner and outermost corners of lashes with a traditional mascara wand. Enter the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara, which comes with a bendable wand that lets you reach every single lash. When you need a waterproof version, reach for the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Waterproof Mascara Blackest Black.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #6: L’ORÉAL PARIS VOLUMINOUS CARBON BLACK MASCARA

When you’re in search of more length for your fringe, don’t overlook classic mascaras. The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara has a cult following—and for a good reason. It’s uniquely formulated to resist clumping, soften lashes, and create dramatic intensity.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #7: L’ORÉAL PARIS DOUBLE EXTEND BEAUTY TUBES

If you haven’t heard of tubing mascara, it’s time to make its acquaintance. Tubing mascaras, like the L’Oréal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes, form tubes around your lashes that act like lash-lengthening extensions. Not only does our tubing mascara make eyelashes look longer, but it also can be washed off with only warm water. It’s a win-win.

LENGTHENING MASCARA #8: L’ORÉAL PARIS AIR VOLUME MEGA MASCARA, LIGHTWEIGHT MEGA VOLUME WASHABLE

Everyone can get behind a lengthening mascara, but it never hurts for your essential to do more than lengthen. This is where the L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara, Lightweight Mega Volume Washable shines. The volumizing option has a weightless formula that inflates and puffs up lashes. Not to mention, its short and long bristles effectively coat every single lash to lengthen your fringe. You can also scoop up the waterproof version, so your lashes can look their best once moisture gets into the equation.

YOUR ROUTINE FOR LONG-LOOKING LASHES

Choosing the best mascara for lengthening can make all the difference in how long your lashes look, but your application technique also matters. Follow these simple steps to score lengthy eyelashes you can call your own.

STEP 1: APPLY A LASH-CARING SERUM

Whatever mascara you choose, you’ll also want to consider using a lash serum regularly as well. Think about it: You condition and care for the hair on your head and your brows to help keep it healthy and looking its best, and the same holds true for your lashes. Give your fringe extra TLC with a serum that’s formulated with nourishing ingredients like Pro vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid, such as the L’Oréal Paris Lash Serum Solution Eyelash Serum with Lash Caring Complex. Starting with clean, dry lashes, apply a thin line of the lash serum onto the upper lash line. Then, allow the serum to dry for 60 seconds.

STEP 2: CURL

The straighter your lashes are, the harder it is to tell how long they are. That’s why you’ll want to start by using an eyelash curler to give your lashes curve.

STEP 3: PRIME

When your mascara isn’t the most lengthening (which shouldn’t be an issue now), using a primer can make a major difference. Try the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Primer to help boost the volume and length of your lashes.

STEP 4: COAT

With your mascara of choice on hand, place the brush at the base of your lashes and slowly wiggle it upward. Be sure to coat your eyelashes completely from roots to ends.

STEP 5: COAT AGAIN

Your work is not done. Two coats of mascara is the perfect number to create the appearance of long lashes.

Now that you’re an official lengthening mascara expert, there’s no harm in taking things to the next level. Head over to our article, This Is Why Our Lash Serum Is a Must, for more information.
