5 best mascaras for eyelash extensions

I know, I know, the whole point of eyelash extensions is to look polished without having to apply makeup. However, sometimes you still want to up the ante on your regular look, and a slick of mascara is the easiest way to do that. But how do you do it without destroying those fluttery lashes you love so much? Well, the trick to finding the right mascara to use on eyelash extensions is to make sure it’s not waterproof, oil based or contains extra fibres (which normally help with length). Waterproof will make it too hard to remove and oil will dissolve the glue holding the lashes to your lids (which is never a fun time). Extra fibres are just best to avoid…

While there are a myriad of other ingredients you should probably avoid – we’ve rounded up the best of the best that you can actually use. You can thank us later.

You’re usually safe with vegan formulas, but this one is definitely a standout. Using Amazonian Clay to absorb excess oil and enrich colour pigment, this volume-boosting product will become your new go-to. Find it at sephora.com.au, $29

Perfect for those who avoid heavy, clumpy mascara, this gel formula is loved for its ability to lengthen, gloss and provide a natural but defined look. Read more reviews for Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara here.

Another vegan formula that does not disappoint, INIKA Organic utilises Carnauba Wax and Magnolia Bark to boost volume and length but also protect (your real and fake) lashes naturally. Read more reviews for INIKA Organic Long Lash Vegan Mascara here.

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes

A buildable formula that boasts curl, separation, volume and length using a vegan friendly, gluten and sulfate free ingredient list, Charlotte Tilbury (in our humble opinion) can do no wrong. Find it at charlottetilbury.com/au, $48

Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara

A cult favourite for a reason, Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara is the OG when it comes to a bold and intense lash look. With an exclusive formula, plus vitamin B5, the mascara is smudge and clump proof. Read more reviews for Lancôme Hypnôse Mascara here.
