I’m going to keep this post short and sweet as mascara is pretty self explanatory! I wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without a slick of mascara, and just a few coats can really make a difference to your look.
As far as colour goes, I only ever opt for the blackest of black, but there are many other mascara shades out there. Technique is simple, look down into a mirror and use zig-zag motions to brush the mascara wand through your lashes. I generally use two coats of my favourite lengthening mascara, and for a dramatic look, an extra coat of a volume mascara.
Best Budget Mascara Buys
Max Factor – Masterpiece Max
I’ve loved this mascara for years, as it really separates and lengths your lashes. I use this daily and it always gives a really defined lash look with no clumping. The head of the brush bends, which makes application really easy.
Max Factor – Masterpiece Max £9.99
Maybelline – Volum’ Express – The Falsies
I tried this mascara from Maybelline out, as so many beauty bloggers were raving about it. The curved wand makes it easy to coat your lashes and gives a thick false lash effect. I find that I need to use the Max Factor ‘Masterpiece Max’ mascara initially to separate the lashes, then add this one to add the volume. Great for a statement lash look.
Maybelline – The Falsies £7.99
Max Factor – False Lash Effect
The Max Factor ‘False Lash Effect’ Mascara gives a similar full lash effect as the Maybelline mascara. This one gives you gorgeous fluttery lashes with no clumping. Max Factor often have multi-buy deals so I would highly recommend purchasing this one along with the ‘Masterpiece Max’ Mascara.
Max Factor – False Lash Effect £10.99
I would love to try a few new mascaras so leave me your recommendations in the comments.
