On the hunt for a new season mascara? Sarah Simpson may have found just the perfect new addition to your winter beauty wardrobe.
Where would women be without mascara?! Well, I know where I would be, holed up inside with a bag on my head. Mascara for me is a must-have daily essential, just as it is for many women. With its ability to add definition and shape to an eye, it's no wonder it scores so high on the list of can't-live-without beauty products.
If you feel like you're stuck in a rut with your mascara, then maybe it's time for a lash overhaul. Here are some of our fave lash-lovers that tick all the boxes with the concerns you may be having. Find out which tiny tubes of magic is the right choice for you.
Problem: Fair lashes
Solution: Fair-haired friends will understand only too well the perils of having golden coloured locks. While their hair shines and glistens in the sun like Rapunzel's, their lashes are almost indetectable. Along with regular tinting at the salon, a good mascara is going to become your best friend. Choose a mascara which has a well-bristled brush to capture all of the light hairs, even the baby ones, and coat them in colour making them visible and instantly adding some definition to your peepers.
Problem: Sparse lashes
Solution: If you've been a slave to the lash extensions for too long, or if you simply haven't been blessed with lashings of lashes, a volumising mascara is the choice you need to be making. Designed to coat each lash with a healthy dose of mascara minus the clumps, these formulas cope well with a second or third coat being layered and brush it designed specifially with volume-buildin in mind.
Problem: Short lashes
Solution: Those seeking length for their lashes will benefit from a mascara which defines each and every lash without adding too much volume. Working on definition is going to give the illusion of a longer lash rather than a thicker one. Lengthening mascaras work with a brush that has different bristle heights which will ensure that each and every lash is coated all adding to the end result.
Problem: Straight lashes
Solution: Lashes that don't have a natural curl benefit hugely from a quick round with an eyelash curler, but added to this is the choice of a mascara which has curling qualities. Elastic polymers are added to the formulas of these variants which upon contact with lashes, will naturally lift and curl once dried.
