Lash Surge Mascara Waterproof, £5.99 | Collection

Prone to watery eyes or simply need a product that won’t budge? This waterproof mascara comes with a soft and luxurious dual brush to get right into the lash line and outermost hairs to emphasise that fanned-out and sultry look – often something only achieved with individual falsies.

Lash 'N Roll Mascara, £6 | E.l.f 

If you struggle with straight or short lashes, this will be game changing. With a curved wand and a richly pigmented formula, it uses a double-sided and silicone brush to separate, lift and curl even the smallest of lashes. Smudge and flake resistant, and with a vegan formula, it’s one that’ll work whatever the occasion.

Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara, £11.99 | L’Oreal

For the ultimate feathered, dramatic lash, make this your go-to. Combatting clumps with its clever combination of long and short bristles, it deposits just the right amount of product to deliver a bold effect. Plus, the slightly more detailed tip is perfect for catching those outermost lashes for fanned, wide-eyed finish.

Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara, £11.99 | Maybelline

Maybelline is known for making great, affordable mascaras – and this one is a favourite among the SL team. Working to thicken and lengthen lashes in just one coat, the flexible wand picks up even the tiniest lashes at the inner and outer corners for a full, fluttery look. In addition, the formula contains bamboo extract to condition and hydrate lashes over time.

Big Lash Volume Mascara, £4.99 | Revolution

Glameyes Day 2 Night Mascara, £7.99 | Rimmel London

Smaller, finer fibres help this mascara seamlessly coat the lashes in a natural but impactful way. Adding both volume and length, the ultra-black shade will quickly make it an evening favourite. Just use a lighter hand to make it work for the daytime, too.

Masterpiece Lash WOW Mascara, £8.90 | Max Factor

With an easy-twist function, this two-in-one mascara works to lengthen and add volume at the same time. Flake-proof and with a vegan formula, it glides on with ease, coating lashes right down to the lash line for the most flawless finish. Plus, it’s ophthalmologically tested – making it great for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
