Bustle/Amazon

If you have thin lashes, you know how hard it can be to find a mascara that makes a difference in terms of volume. And often, thin lashes tend to look sparse or fall on the straight side, which means you likely need a mascara that does much more than just volumize. The best mascaras for thin lashes will thicken, sure, but ideally, they'll also enhance the appearance of fullness and deliver a slight lift.

There are a few other tricks you can do to make your thin lashes appear thicker and fuller, too. Most importantly, you'll always want to prep your lashes by curling them before applying mascara. (Here's a rundown of the best eyelash curlers.) Even if you don't plan on wearing mascara, curling your lashes will help them appear longer and fuller. Also, try applying your mascara at the root, and hold it there for a second. Then, blink your lashes as you move the brush upwards. This will give them some extra volume at the base and prevent clumping at the ends so the overall effect is fuller but more natural.

Scroll on to discover the best mascaras for thin lashes, whether they tend to run straight, sparse, or short as well.
