LASH OUT – TOP 4 MASCARA PICKS

We all swoon over gorgeous long wispy lashes however, the difficulties surrounding false eyelashes mean that most of us reach for a good mascara to create that mini faux lash.

These four mascaras are by far the best mascaras that I have used. They individually and combined create long, wispy and naturally thick looking lashes. Clumpy lashes are definitely not a good look and we want to create the illusion that our lashes are naturally thick and long. Clumps definitely do the opposite.

Firstly, this Dior (Diorshow Iconic Overcurl) is excellent for curling lashes. We all dream of those hassle free mornings and this mascara essentially combines a lash curler and a great mascara. The wand is curved so that you can really lift the lashes from the very root, which helps them stay curled for the entire day. This is the mascara I reach for everyday as it separates, thickens the look of lashes and curls them all at once! I use the shade (090) which is a jet black shade.

Secondly, this Guerlain Cils D`Enfer Maxi Lash Mascara (01 Noir) is great for natural looking lashes. The wand is particularly good at separating lashes which creates the illusion of more individual lashes. The simplicity of the design means that the product is build-able so, if desired, a more dramatic look can be created with this mascara too.

Thirdly, if I want to create a dramatic eyelash look, one that mirrors the look of a mini faux lash, I always reach for my L’oreal Volume Million Lashes (shade black). The reason for this is that, this wand has anti-clumping wipers which ensure that you can create a thick lash look ensuring that you have zero clumps. Additionally, with this mascara, only a couple of coats are required to create that wide eyed faux eye lash look.

Finally, in terms of value for money I would recommend the Kiko Falselashes Concentrate Volume Top Coat Mascara. This mascara is brilliant for lifting lashes as the brush is much larger than those that have previously been mentioned. I find that with this mascara, that I can really volumize my outer corner lashes and the larger brush allows me to lengthen them. The shade is also particularly black with I adore.

Guerlain Beauty Favourites

Guerlain is a beauty brand that I have recently fallen in love with.  Below are some of my favourite products at the moment.

1. Terracotta Joli Teint

If you have a olive/caramel skin tone and struggle to find a subtle bronzer – this is the one for you. Not only is it the perfect blend of apricots and browns (to give you an early summer glow) it is also scented! Yes, Scented! Who doesn’t want a scented bronzer? This bronzer is buildable, so you can opt for a subtle, or slightly more contoured look. It also comes in 4 different shades!

2. Guerlain Eyeliner Pencil

If I could give an award for THE best eyeliner – this would hands down win. I always find it difficult to find super soft eyeliners as my eyes are quite sensitive and tend to water when I apply eyeliner. This eyeliner is so soft and does not irritate the inner eye at all. This eyeliner glides on effortlessly and is so blendable. I found it worked well to smoke out for a smokey eye look too. The black is the eyeliner I use everyday (Jack Black) but for a more subtle look, I opt for the brown(Jackie Brown). The blue is for when I am feeling wild (Katy Navy)!

3. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraîche

This scent is so refreshing – especially for spring. A blend of rose petals, mandarin and pistachio, this scent if gorgeous!

4. Guerlain Meteorites Oxygen Care Moisturiser & Radiance Booster

As well as being a super hydrating moisturiser, this is an amazing make up base . It absorbs into the skin really quickly and has a very light feel. I have incorporated this into my daily skin routine and I am loving it.
