Volumising Mascaras

Nothing gives your gaze an instant lift like a coat of thickening mascara, yet many of us don’t replace our tubes often enough. Regularly replacing your mascara is incredibly important to avoid eye infections. Switch out every six months, or sooner if you notice the formula gets clumpy or starts to smell funny, which means it’s gone bad. So if there’s one thing you buy this January, make it a new mascara. Here are our favourite formulas…

By Laura
THICKENING

Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara £22

Promising ‘curl, separation, volume, length and drama’, this mascara remains one of my all-time favourites. I love that it gives me fluffy, sexy lashes and lasts all day. (suggested use-by date: 6 months)

Eyeko + Alexa Chung Eye Do Mascara £20 

Designed to promote thicker and longer-looking lashes, this mascara is perfect to finish off a cat’s eye look as it’s super-black and really plumps up your lashes. (suggested use-by date: 6 months)

LENGTHENING

Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara £23

This extra-large, chunky mascara promises to give you fuller, va-va-voom lashes with just one coat. It gets right into the root of your lashes, giving you really fabulous, yet natural-looking, volume. (suggested use-by date: 6 months)

Eyeko Rock Out & Lash Out Mascara £20

This mascara has a unique guitar-shaped brush that gives your lashes length and and an overall intensity, but if you only use the end bit on your little lashes you can achieve a more natural eye flick, which is also lovely, especially in the daytime. (suggested use-by date: 6 months)
