Clump-free formula, full lashes, can't lose, is our mantra when it comes to choosing mascara. Without a doubt, our mascara is the hardest worker in our beauty routines. From concealing a late night, to making eyes appear bigger, few makeup products have the magic like a volumizing mascara to make us instantly look awake and pulled-together. Thanks to a clique of new and tried-and-true tubes, faking thicker, fuller lashes has never been easier. CoverGirl's So Lashy! Blast Pro's wand has a unique three-in-one brush that shapes and molds to you, no matter your lash type, while rms Beauty's formula is packed with gentle, natural emollient ingredients like sunflower oil and shea butter that enhance lash size. Even better: Many of these mascaras can be found at your favorite drugstore, so you won't have to choose between happy hour wine, or replacing the dried-up tube you've been salvaging. Here, we've rounded up our favorite volumizing mascaras that coat lashes better than the rest.
There are a million and one beauty apps out there. But even we have to admit that this new feature from the Sephora app is pretty cool. Unlike a lot of apps, which will have a video demo of the makeup artist applying a given technique to their own face, the virtual artist (found under the “inspire me” tab) actually uses the camera on your phone to draw out the instructions on your face in real time – so there’s no guessing. Step-by-step, it walks you through prep, application and finishing touches – and then (of course) offers a listing of suggested products for achieving the look. ALSO SEE: This eyebrow tutorial went from questionable to incredibleWhile the app – like many other beauty apps – has offered virtual try-ons of lipstick and lashes for quite some time, these more complicated tutorials tackle actual application skills, like winged eyeliner and a smoky eye.

Which is why I was curious when I received an invitation to Winks Eyelash Boutique in Toronto, Ont. to try out eyelash extensions at their new Queen Street West location. When I arrived for my appointment, I immediately told my eyelash technician, Joanna, that I probably have the shortest sparsest eyelashes she’s ever seen. After I removed all traces of my eye make up (a very important step to ensure the eyelash extensions adhere properly), I turned around to face Joanna.
Not only did the Melt Off remove the waterproof mascara we used — which if you’ve ever used waterproof mascara, you’ll know is no easy feat — but it also left our lovely volunteer, Sarah’s, eyes feeling way less irritated than with the makeup wipe she used on her other eye.

I’m one of those people who get in the shower and go rogue with the conditioner – we’re talking a palm-sized portion if my hair is extra tangled.
Working as a beauty editor, I’ll admit I have a slight obsession with makeup. OK, maybe it’s a little bit more than an obsession – doesn’t everyone have at least eight lipsticks in their purse?! What I love about makeup is its ability to transform you, even if if just temporarily, which is why it’s so much fun to play with. But I’m also more than aware that it can also be down right pricey.
