The perfect mascara is a girl’s best friend, and we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to the selection on offer. There’s mascaras for separation and for length, for curl and for definition. There’s curved wands and straight wands, waterproof formulas and lash-coating formulas. And don’t get us started on the colours available. So how to find the best mascara for you?
When it comes to the perfect everyday mascara, you’re looking for a formula that’s effective yet lightweight – and with no clumps – along with a brilliant brush for lengthened, defined and evenly-coated lashes at the stroke of a wand.
