These Are the Best Fiber Mascaras for Sky-High Lashes

True story: When Marc Jacobs was younger, he'd watch his mother as she carefully shaved away at a strip of black velvet ribbon, collecting the fibers that pilled so that she could apply them to her lashes and create her own bespoke lash extensions. Cut to 2016 when beauty guru Huda Kattan shook the vlogosphere with her own lash-lengthening hack in which she glued pieces of cotton to the tips of her lashes before applying mascara.
