We spend quite a deal of time admiring our favorite star's makeup looks, scrutinizing every vanity that's visible in mirror selfies, and pausing "get ready with me" TikToks to see exactly what products they use. We know that, despite having access to all the beauty products they could ever want, celebrities have their favorites. That rings true for everything from the perfumes they wear to the concealers they've tried, and, of course, mascaras they swear by.

Not to be dramatic, but finding a good mascara can be game-changing for your makeup look, and we think these stars would agree. Everyone has a different preference, not just in product but in application style, too. Some celebrities like Winnie Harlow prioritize length, while others like volume. A select few even subscribe to "mascara-mixology," combining two products to get their look just right (hint: it's Kristen Bell).

What's especially great is some of these celebrity-approved mascaras can be found at the drugstore, while others are a little luxury that you can splurge on. If you care just as much about a star's "must have" products as we do, keep scrolling to take a peek into the makeup bags of stars like Hailey Bieber, Jennifer Lopez, Marsai Martin, Madelyn Cline, and many, many more. These celebrity-favorite mascaras range in price — from just $9 to $38 — so you'll be sure to find an option you like on this list.

Winnie Harlow's Favorite Mascara

Winnie Harlow previously told POPSUGAR that, after trying many different options, she discovered the Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara ($9) as her favorite.

Harlow also divulged her special method for applying the product. "I start by brushing the back of it to get it fully coated, and then you get the max coverage on your lash — the biggest, blackest, full-coverage lashes — without having to put falsies on."
