Longggggggg lashes and glasses just don't play well together! It's annoying to blink, and it can leave your glasses all smeary by the end of the day. But plenty of mascaras just focus on volume, which will give you the lash drama you want, without the downsides. Look for mascaras with a big, fluffy brush, as opposed to one that's smaller and spikier (those are great for length!) One that fits the bill perfectly is the Elizabeth Mott It's So Big mascara — it has a large, hourglass-shaped brush which will give great volume, it has more than 3,000 positive reviews on Amazon, and it's cruelty-free!
Promising review: “This is an excellent mascara and I have tried dozens. I have very long lashes that need a little volume. That might sound like an envious position, but the long length allows many mascaras to smudge and flake, especially when wearing glasses. That does not happen with this mascara, plus it is still easy to remove at the end of the day. It gives the volume I want, too." —NV
