13 Tubing Mascaras That are as Good as Lash Extensions

Margina Dennis, a makeup artist who has worked with celebs such as Billy Porter, Mia Farrow, and Indya Moore, says tubing mascaras are a great alternative to the traditional waterproof mascara because “you eliminate the hard-to-remove aspect and dry feeling that comes with waterproof formulas thanks to the different technology.” She explains that the tubes are solidified as the mascara dries, so typically, only one coat is needed for maximum impact. Just beware—once the mascara has dried fully it can be difficult to layer without getting clumpy, so less is more.
