5 Luxurious Mascaras that you must have
We’re always on the hunt for the perfect mascara (and the perfect shoes!) Mascara seems like such a simple thing, a magic bit of makeup that gives you volume and length and makes your eyes a certain star quality. If you’re in a hurry, mascara makes you look and feel fresh. Keep a tube in your handbag or in your glove box so you’ll be ready to look and feel amazing whatever the occasion.
What should you look for in a mascara? With so many mascaras available it’s worth considering exactly what you want and need. Are you after length or volume, or both? Some mascaras may offer only one. Are your eyelashes brittle and prone to breaking? A conditioning mascara will help keep them healthy. A little research will go a long way to picking the right mascara.
We think with luxury is key the essential makeup like mascara. A little goes a long way and you really do get what you pay for when it comes to luxury and designer mascaras. Mascara is a versatile tool in your makeup collection, go bold and dark for a glamorous evening look, or even mix it up with a playful blue.

-Avoid pumping too much air into your mascara tube- this will prevent it from drying out.
-Use a gentle makeup remover to get rid of any traces of old mascara before applying a fresh coat.
