TRY THIS CLEAR MASCARA

Achieve all day hold with this quick and easy clear mascara for brows, baby hairs and more!

CLEAR MASCARA USE #1: FOR GLOSSY LASHES

On its own, clear mascara gives a wet-sheen gloss to lashes, and slightly darkens them, much the way water darkens hair when saturated. Excellent for that no makeup-makeup look. It also helps lashes hold curl when paired with a lash curler. Maybelline makeup artist Erin Parsons loves using it for this: "I use clear mascara as the first step before I curl my lashes," she says. "I love [clear mascara] for those no-makeup makeup days where I'll use clear mascara as a base, then once it dries, curl my lashes.I then apply another coat of clear to give lashes a glossy finish without seeming like actual makeup. It's the perfect natural eye opener!"

Makeup artist Grace Lee also has a great clear mascara hack that only a MUA would know: "You can also use clear mascara after using black mascara to soften up the black pigment. It adds a beautiful sheen to your lashes!" 

CLEAR MASCARA USE #2: FOR TAMING & SCULPTING BROWS

Clear mascara also works wonders as a brow gel, taming, defining and slightly darkening them without seeming like "makeup". Grace Lee attests: "You can use clear mascara as a brow gel for your eyebrows. Adds a nice sheen and keeps them in place."

CLEAR MASCARA USE #3: FOR BABY HAIR

Another cool clear mascara hack according to Jenna Kristina? Hair gel! "Clear Mascara also helps to tame flay-away/baby hairs with great precision."
