L'Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara Waterproof £10.99

Applying a slick of mascara in the morning is something even the laziest of girls will apply before leaving the house. A desert island product, A hardcore beauty staple and a product I really couldn’t live without. Currently I have a little mascara wardrobe rotation on the go, stocked full of three formulas. All of which serve a different purpose within my makeup routine.

Everyday: For everyday wear I like something that adds length or volume and try to avoid ones that do both. I think picking either or means that the look can still be natural but also enhance. I tend to prefer lighter mascaras for daily use as they don’t dry the lashes out or make them feel clumpy and dry. My Pick: Bourjois Twist Up The Volume Mascara.
Special Occasion: This is where I go all out with my lashes, Anything labelled volumizing and lengthening fits perfectly under this mascara umbrella. As I want something that adds drama and really perks up the eyes, I love that wide-eyed doll look. The false lash effect without actually wearing lashes. I look out for things like "false lash effect" or "10x lengthening/volumizing", anything that really hypes up a product. They also have to be black...the blacker the better. My Pick: Bare Minerals Lash Domination

Waterproof: It’s always good to have a failsafe waterproof mascara in your beauty arsenal. In my time, I’ve gone through my fair share of waterproof mascaras, Some that I love some that I can’t believe are labelled “waterproof”. Waterproof mascaras are typically a heavier of a formula, which can dry out lashes and clump, They are also a bitch to remove. But perfect for occasions like the beach, hay fever season or gigs I like to use something which isn’t going to give me panda eyes by the end of the night. My Pick: L'Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara Waterproof Black.

  10. I wear so much mascara! x

  11. Your picture (I think you added one?) doesn't seem to be working for me. Just a heads up!
    Wow, I've heard so much about that Loreal Telescopic Mascara haha I must add it to my list of products to try!
    I actually haven't worn mascara much lately (yeah I'm one of the laziest of lazy girls)... it just seems like a hassle to take off--I prefer liquid eyeliner and eyeshadow, but I think I'll try wearing mascara again! I do love the way it looks!
