The best mascaras to enhance your eyes
How often do you change your mascara? Probably not often enough! Experts say that we should buy a new one every 3 - 6 months, even if there's some left in the tube. That’s because mascara bottles harbour bacteria from the eye, which over time can grow in the mascara tube and cause eye infections. Yuck!
So, now that you’re in the market for a new mascara, why not update your makeup bag with one of our favourites? From cult classics that everyone loves to the latest mascara innovations you need to know about, these are the beauty buys your make-up bag is calling out for.
Many women say that mascara is their desert island must-have and with its beauty enhancing properties, it’s not hard to understand why! The right mascara does so much more than lengthen lashes. Find the right wand, and you can make your eyes appear larger, create thicker lashes, draw attention to your best features, create definition and even add a pop of colour. It’s all about finding the perfect mascara for you, and with our gallery of favourite mascaras, you can find one for every occasion and every mood.
The trick with mascara is to apply it properly – nobody looks good with clumpy lashes or racoon eyes! Firstly, don’t be tempted to pump the wand in and out of the bottle – this pushes air into the tube which results in dry mascara and flaky lashes. Instead, just twist the wand back and forth to get more product and the scrape off any excess before application. For best results, use a back and forth motion when applying to create a curled effect – you may need to do this 2-3 times.
