Party season is upon us and what better way to ring in the glitz than a roundup of the best mascaras to see you from pool party to sundowner? Your eyes are the first to give your hectic festive season partying schedule away, so having a trusted mascara at your fingertips is essential. Before getting glitzed up, let’s chat about all things eyelash prep…
This Is Your Eyelash Prepping Toolkit:
Clarins SOS Lashes serum Mascara
Essence Eyelash Curler
Essence Volume Booster Lash Primer
Sensai Lash Conditioner
Prepping your eyelashes is much like cutting and shaping your nails before adding a gorgeous new summer shade. It’s all in the details, and these four prepping essentials are a must-have.
Applying a lash serum daily can vastly improve the condition and growth of your lashes. If you want a bit of extra help when it comes to a beautiful shape, a lash curler is your girl. Always curl your lashes for at least 10 seconds per eye before applying a lash-boosting primer for a little extra volume. And remember: taking great care of your lashes doesn’t only apply to the prep but also the aftercare; a lash conditioner is essential when removing any mascara and eye make-up, and it will keep your lashes luscious without any mascara.
These are four of the no-budge, smudge-proof mascaras we love, so you can focus on being the host with the most without having to worry about looking like a racoon by the end of the night!
