The Best Mascaras Designed Specifically for Brides

Even if your lashes are the longest and most beautiful, we can bet mascara is an essential part of your daily routine. No matter what makeup look, mascara is a must-have. It defines and enhances your natural hairline and finishes the look. We’re willing to wager that you’ll wear mascara on your wedding day. The most important thing to remember when selecting a mascara for your big day is that mascara is an individual thing.

MUA Jenny Patinkin explains that mascara is about body chemistry. This means that the mascara that your friend swears by may not work for you. Patinkin advises that you test any mascara before you wear it on your wedding.

There are some things that you should look out for in a wedding-specific formulation (more on that in a moment). However, Patinkin suggests that finding a formula you love for everyday life and using two to three coats rather than the usual one to two is a good idea.

Best Overall: Hourglass Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara

This pick, appropriately named, creates the look of lash extension without any of the commitment, time or cost. Its length and definition are truly unsurpassed, partly due to the molded brush that allows it reach every lash. Although it isn’t waterproof, the film-forming technology protects against smudges. However, it can still be removed with warm water.

Jones Road The Mascara, Best Overall and Runner-Up

Fun fact: This mascara’s name refers to the fact it is “the” only mascara you will ever need. This mascara is rich in black pigment and can be layerable. The curved wand coats the inner and outer eyelashes equally well and adds volume, separation, lift, and volume. It’s also extremely clean and conditioning for your lashes.

Best Drugstore: Maybelline Eye Lash Sensational Mascara

We have nothing against the OG Great Lash formula (the one in the neon pink-green tube), but this mascara is our favourite Maybelline product. This mascara adds volume and length to lashes. You can choose from six colors/waterproof or non-waterproof options. And, of course, it’s affordable in true drugstore fashion.

Best Waterproof: Urban Decay Perversion waterproof Mascara

Although you don’t necessarily have to use waterproof mascara on your big day, it’s a good idea to do so if you are certain you will be crying a few tears (or that it will be hot and humid). The formula is volumizing and lengthening. It contains proteins, amino acids 1 and honey. This helps to improve your lashes’ health and prevent them from getting dry quickly.

Caliray Come Hell Or High Water is the Best Tubing

Patinkin suggests tubing mascaras as a good alternative to waterproof formulas. They work by delivering tiny tubes that coat every lash and extend them. She loves this mascara: “It builds volume and length, and stays put until it is washed off,” she said. It is waterproof, won’t smudge, and it is also water-resistant. A nice bonus is that the tube is 100% ocean-recycled plastic.
