Since the beginning of time clumpy mascara has been considered a major beauty faux pas. There is nothing worse than applying your second coat and ending up with thick, clumpy, spider lashes when all you wanted was a little bit of volume and definition. But now, model Anna Ewers has me in the mood for a little bit of clump (and a perfect summer tan). Ewers appears on the August cover of Vogue Paris, shot by Inez and Vinoodh, sporting a big smile, bronzed skin, and perfectly clumpy, slightly messy lashes.

Getting the look is relatively easy — apply multiple coats of your favorite mascara until you reach your desired level of rock n’ roll mess. Or you can reach for Maybelline’s Volum’Express The Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara ($8), the newest mascara from the brand that is all about a little clump. The trick is to apply your first coat as you would any other mascara, then take your brush and apply a second coat holding the wand vertically and swiping back and forth across your lashes. Even if you’re not in the mood for that chaotic look, a single swipe of this volume packed formula will leave you with thicker, bolder lashes.
