Like many of us, Camila Mendes is super picky when it comes to mascara. While filming her daily makeup look in a video for Vogue, the Riverdale actress revealed she actually prefers a mascara that elongates her lashes without adding too much volume.

When applying mascara, the actress uses “just enough to where you can see the eyelids through your lashes.” Her primary goal during lash application is to keep it natural and add length.

While the video didn’t cover Mendes’ exact mascara choice, Popsugar identified the mascara as ILIA Limitless Lash Mascara. The only mascara from clean beauty brand ILIA, it’s made with a blend of organic bee and carnauba waxes that condition lashes while adding noticeable length. (The actress also swears by this hair $10 hair product.)

The dark black formula meets all of Mendes’ mascara requirements: It never weighs down your lashes, adds just the right amount of volume, and locks in curl.

Plus, the natural mascara has a dual-sided brush that allows you to go for either precise length or dramatic volume—and you can probably guess Mendes’ preference.

Not only will you achieve a super natural look, but you’ll love that the natural, non-toxic formula, too. And if you’re not past the notion that clean beauty equals bad beauty, Amazon reviewers confirm this mascara is just as great as (if not better than) non-natural alternatives; it doesn’t run, and it stays in place all day long even though it can be easily removed with warm water.

Plus, Mendes is a huge fan of the brand. Her daily routine includes multiple ILIA products:

Of course, Mendes has a few other tricks up her sleeves when it comes to her eye makeup look.

She preps her top lashes by curling them with a Shiseido Eyelash Curler, while her bottom eyelashes get a completely different treatment. She actually uses the It Cosmetics Tightline 3-in-1 Black Primer, which she calls a “tiny little guy,” and applies it to the tips of her bottom lashes for a subtle boost.

While Mendes says she’s probably the only one who even notices her attention to detail on her eyelashes, we have to disagree. Her lashes always look naturally fabulous, and we’re sure a huge part of that can be attributed to her impeccable product choice. Now we just have to grab five tubes for ourselves before they sell out post-Mendes approval.
