Clear Mascara Is The Essential Your Makeup Kit Is Missing

Beyoncé has given us a lot over the years — Dangerously In Love, the 2009 Inaugural Ball performance for the Obamas, and a few iconic Vogue covers that will forever sit on our coffee tables. Through all that, she’s also given us some serious hair and makeup inspiration, and we take a lot of notes from Bey’s beauty handbook. So, when she posted an up-close selfie of a subtle cat-eye with bare lashes, our only thought was: Is this what we’re doing now?

Typically, we consider our ultra-black mascara a desert-island essential. But what Queen Bey does, we follow. And you’ll see that there are other beauty lovers who are also skipping the mascara and going au natural — even if they’re doing a full-on eye look. But if you want to go bare, you don’t have to go completely naked. According to the pros, clear mascara can make all the difference in curling and defining your lashes without adding too much drama.

Ahead, find out which clear mascaras are best for the naked lash look.

 

“My favourite clear mascara is from Anastasia Beverly Hills,” says Anton Khachaturian, celebrity makeup artist at Exclusive Artists. “It gives natural volume to the lashes on those days that you don’t want to wear mascara. It’s fantastic for holding your brows in place, too.”

Collection’s clear mascara doubles up as a brow gel. It slicks hairs into place without making them feel rock hard, and separates lashes quickly and easily.

“I love this 2-in-1 gel because it grooms brows and holds them in place. It can also be used to lengthen and define lashes for a natural, fresh look. Plus, the formula has aloe vera, which conditions the hair as well.” — Timothy MacKay, professional makeup artist

“This clear mascara comes with a curved brush that curls and separates as it defines the lashes,” says T. Cooper, celebrity makeup artist. “I also use this product as a brow gel. The best way to apply clear mascara is to use thin coats, and make sure the first coat is completely dry before applying the next — you have to build slowly.”

“I actually remember when I was very young I wanted a clear mascara, because I just wanted something to hold the curl on my lashes with zero clumping. Everyone looked at me like I was nuts. What I ended up doing was using clear brow gel. My favourite in a pinch is this one from Bobbi Brown.” — Cassandra Garcia, Bobbi Brown lead editorial makeup artistBobbi Brown Waterproof Brow Shaper, $, available at Bobbi Brown

“I think the best clear mascara has to be Great Lash by Maybelline,” says Justin Tyme, celebrity makeup artist. Clear mascara needs to be flexible yet durable. This formula has been a go-to since its creation. It provides separation with zero buildup.
