The right mascara can give you longer, thicker eyelashes. Use an eyelash curler first, then apply mascara from the inner corners out, moving the wand slightly upwards and outwards. Anna Sui Super Mascara DX Full, 8.1g, $210 This transforms lashes - making them look long and full. It's smudge- and flake-resistant and the wand is easy to use. Sugarbaby Lush Lashes, 8g, $180 Reasonably long-lasting and easily removed with makeup remover. However, the overly large brush is difficult to manage. Julie Hewett Rose-Scented Mascara, 9.1g, $190 Lasts all day, doesn't smear or clump, and cleans off easily. But it doesn't add much volume or length. Cyber Colors Twinstar Waterproof Maximizing Mascara, 8ml, $128 The mascara comes along with eyelash strengthening gel which you apply first. The mascara is easy to apply and long-lasting, but the effects are minimal - several coats are necessary for lush lashes. Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara, 6ml, $160 Wave goodbye to panda eyes - this doesn't smear, smudge or clump. This all-in-one formula increases curl, length and volume. Best of all, its long-lasting effect makes it excellent value for money.
