Lash envy is a real thing. Sometimes I’m caught gazing into the eyes of a stranger as I attempt to figure out what mascara she uses or if those are really lash extensions. (Yes, I can spot the difference.) But I didn’t have to creepily stare at these Sephora pros to get this inside info. They gave up their favorite mascara picks willingly.
In fact, when we asked which formulas they turn to for themselves and for clients, they had multiple picks to share—and some brands kept coming up again and again. (Apparently Urban Decay has cracked the code to maximum volume .) These makeup artists spend all day testing out the latest launches on themselves and on Sephora customers, so they are experts when it comes to what works. Whether you like natural-looking lashes or a dramatic, magnified look, there’s a product pick for you.
