Get the right mascara and it can do wonders for your eyelashes by making them longer, thicker and smudgeproof. Get the wrong one and you could have a little black waterfall trickle down your cheeks as you sob your vows. Here’s a few of my favourites:
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
The blurb: Perfectly defined lashes with a clean, separate finish
Best for: Great waterproof. Price.
The verdict: Despite the garish case, it’s often voted as a top mascara. Can be a little clumpy at ends so needs careful application.
Besame Sculpture Lash Mascara
The blurb: Adds extraordinary length and intense volume to even the shortest of lashes using just one coat. Paraben and fragrance free.
Best for: Posing with the glamorous retro case, a soft look.
The verdict: Went on in one coat without clumps, lengthened but stayed soft.
No7 Intense Volume Waterproof Mascara
The blurb: fantastic volumising mascara that creates thicker lashes. Hypo-allergenic and fragrance free.
Best for: Light everyday wear.
The verdict: Looked very natural with one application but took three layers to get some volume.
Max Factor More Lashes Multiplying Mascara
The blurb: Volume and separation. Gives you the look of more lashes.
Best for: Volume
The verdict: Thick solution that only needed one application to make lashes look thicker.
