There are many make-up products in the world that promise to enhance, define and beautify, but few can transform a face quite as quickly as a good mascara can. From cult classic formulas to the new kids on the block, there’s something out there for everyone. So whether you’ve been blessed with naturally full, Bambi-esque lashes or not, we’ve picked the best of the best that will not only lengthen, volumise and define your lashes but help you to achieve the look you want.

Sensitive Soul

La Roche Posay is best known for its skin care, but for anyone who finds that mascara can irritate their eyes, it might be time to check out the Respectissime Densifieur Mascara (€17.25). The formula is flake-free and contains no perfume or fragrance so is suitable for contact lens wearers as well as sensitive eyes.

Drama Queen

Give your lashes real volume and va va voom with the new Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes (€32). Designed to be an all rounder, the formula glides over lashes to lengthen and volumise without clumping or flaking throughout the day so there’s no need to fear the dreaded undereye mascara smudge.

Turn Up the Volume

Double the look of your lashes and turn the volume up to the max with Clarins Supra Volume Mascara (€26). The formula contains cassia flower wax to nourish and protect even the weakest of lashes, strengthening them and improving their natural fullness after 4 weeks. Even maven46 Editor, Tanya is a fan!

If you’re looking to boost your lashes but still stay in budget then Wet n Wild’s Lash-o-Matic Fiber Extension Kit ($7.99) is the way to go. The instant lash extension kit contains a quick drying primer and sealing mascara to create the look of false lashes in three easy steps- no adhesive necessary.

Lashes Maximised
