The mascara Fan Brush

Different brushes give different effects

 

I often get asked what the best mascara is out there. Honestly there are so many good ones out there I think there is one that fits any bill. The great thing is that you use mascara so often it means you have to rebuy a lot, which makes for lots of testing… Another trip to the beauty store – YAY! A good mascara is the combination of an excellent formula (ie not too wet or dry and highly pigmented with carbon black) and an excellent brush. Eyeko do a little set called the Macara Wardrobe  which is one formula with three brushes. Clever.

At the AW13 shows make up artists were using mascara fan brushes on which they deposited mascara formula and brushed this through the lashes creating natural looking slightly thickened lashes, without the usual va va voom fake lash effect. I’m personally going to ignore this ‘no mascara look’ that a lot of designers are featuring at the moment – I simply adore mascara, it makes me feel better. Falsies are also an excellent option too, especially individual ones which you can deposit on the outer corners only, just to give teeny bit of cats eye effect.

So here goes:

1 – Topshop Carbon Copy Mascara & Dior Show Mascara – great for lengthening

2 – Maybelline Rocket Mascara & L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes – for FAT lashes

3- Chanel Inimitable Waterproof – best waterproof I have found and it really separates each lash too.
