Best for curl

The product: Clarins Super Lift & Curl Mascara

Best for length

The product: Benefit They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara

Best for colour

The product: Dior Diorshow Pump N’ Volume Mascara in 260 Blue

Why we love it: Don’t get us wrong – black is the most universal mascara shade. It’s a safe choice though. Mix things up by adding a pop of colour to your lashes. Keep the rest of your make-up neutral.

Pair this with: A high-shine lip oil.

Best for bottom lashes

The product: Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

Why we love it: We love subtle make-up tweaks that give massive impact. Apply the mascara vertically instead of horizontally to the bottom lashes using the tip of the wand. We’re obsessed with the intensity of this mascara formula as it makes your eyes appear bigger.

Pair this with: Copper or brown eyeshadow.
