Still searching for the perfect mascara? From next-gen formulas to modern innovations, we asked the experts for their all-time favourites to help take out the guesswork. Here’s what they had to say……
IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara | £20

1. iT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

“iT Cosmetics is my favourite for a full and feathery lash that has maximum impact. The brush-wand is layered with a ton of bristles that grabs each lash individually, leaving a more fanned out look You can reapply later in the day to vamp up your look without any clumping.” – Cher Webb, Make-Up Artist

2. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara

Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara | £12

3. Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara

Its bristles are slim enough to get mascara all the way to the roots of your lashes without staining your skin with product and the wand evenly distributes the colour . But it’s the formula I love the most. It’s a super-rich black pigment which layers beautifully. But, this isn’t for the lash shy as it’s all about volume, length and definition. It never sheds either. Can you tell I love it?” – Caroline Barnes, Celebrity Make-Up Artist and Max Factor Ambassador
