Finding the perfect mascara isn't as simple as finding a wand.. the formula and wand need to work together for your lashes. Though there are general rules:

  • For volume look for larger brushes, these work best on longer lashes
  • Tapered brushes are great for loading up the outer lashes
  • Spiral brushes help curl your lashes by lifting as you roll the brush through the lashes
  • Curved brushes are great for creating a fan effect
  • Thin brushes (micro) are best for definition.. they're also my personal favourite
  • Short moulded brushes are great for lengthening and defining
  • Ball or Micro brushes are great for those hard to reach lashes

Work with your skintone and the cosmetic effect that you want to achieve. We are all lucky that we have unique faces.. play up the features you love and play down those you don't.
