GET PERFECT LASHES WITH THE RIGHT MASCARA WAND

Whether you’re a makeup diva or a quick-fix queen, mascara is an almighty product. Here is your guide to getting the lashes of your dreams!

Modern mascara comes in hundreds of versions delivering countless effects, so it’s time to check out exactly which mascara wands do what. And girlfriend – to get the most out of any mascara, you must curl first! Also, take care never to get eye cream on your lashes, or it will be hard for the pigment to stay put (Editor’s pick: Eyelash Curler).

YOU WANT…
Long, fanned-out lashes, separated and winged out in all directions for a fuller-looking lash line. Think Jasmine in Aladdin!

YOUR IDEAL WAND
One that grabs and curls every lash with alternating long and short bristles in a screw-like shape, wider at the bottom and narrower at the top. This gives longer, fuller impact and spreads your lashes up, out and in (Editor’s pick: GG Lash Panorama Mascara).

YOU WANT…
High-volume retro lashes. The mascara is built up in several coats and the effect is intense colour and thicker lashes, direct from the Swinging 60s.

YOUR IDEAL WAND
Pick a wand with dense, medium-length conical bristles. It should grab every lash and hold a lot of product to give you that lush blackness and ’va-va-va-voom’ (Editor’s pick: The ONE Volume Blast Mascara).

YOU WANT…
Long, defined lashes that open the eye.

YOUR IDEAL WAND
A wand with short bristles on one side for the first coat – to lift and curl – and long bristles on the other side for the final, lengthening coat. Sweep up and out towards your temples. Imagine a beautiful, fairylike creature with impossibly long lashes that still feel au naturel (Editor’s pick: OB Wonder Lash Mascara).

 

 



APPLICATION STEP-BY-STEP

1

 

Place the wand right at the roots of your lashes. Apply with a zigzag motion from root to tip to really work the mascara into every lash.

 2

 

For clump-free bottom lashes (yes, we can!), dot mascara onto a tiny eye shadow brush and use it to gently apply the product.

LASH EMERGENCY!

If you lose lashes a lot when you wash your face or have recently been through a period of high stress or illness, do consider a nourishing lash serum or mascara with extra nutrients to help your lashes grow longer and stronger. You should see results within about four weeks.
