TOP 5 BEST MASCARAS AND EYELINERS
I am always on the search for amazing mascaras and eyeliners, because I think they are two products that can really make or break your eye makeup. There is no point doing a beautiful shadow that takes you hours if the eye liner you use after isn’t sharp, black and long-lasting! Same with mascara- when you find a really amazing mascara it can seriously change up the way your makeup looks. Here are my picks for the best 5 mascaras and eyeliners.
1- LANCOME HYPNOSE MASCARA- £23.50
This and Benefit’s They’re Real mascara are my absolute favourites. This mascara does not make your lashes clump together (something I absolutely hate). It is also amazing because it doesn’t dry too quickly which gives you plenty of time to perfect your lashes. Super black, super easy to work with and gives you the longest, luscious lashes.
Who should use it- If you already have medium/long lashes and just want that extra drama and length as well as a really black colour.
2- BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL MASCARA- £19.50
This has been one of my favourites for years. It’s reliable and amazing every time. The super thin and sturdy wand really extends your lashes, pulling them up and out. This does a great job on stubborn, short lashes that don’t want to be curled (my mum has quite short lashes and this is her go-to mascara, it seriously does an amazing job)
Who should use it- Those with short, stubborn lashes. This will seriously do you wonders.
3- CHARLOTTE TILBURY FULL FAT LASHES- £22.00
I don’t know why it took me so long to get this mascara but after using it a couple of times I am obsessed with it. The wand seriously catches every single lash and perfectly defines them, creating a beautiful, non-clumpy set of lashes. This mascara does not smudge anywhere (I hate it when half way through the day my mascara is has smudged all over the place)- it stays put and beautiful all day long.
Who should use it- Anyone who wants natural looking lashes, with definition and length but absolutely no clumps in sight. This is perfect for those who wear minimal makeup but want that separation and length.
4- LOREAL MEGA VOLLUME MANGA MASCARA- £7.99
If you like thick, long, and full lashes, or you want a mascara to layer over false lashes this one is for you. This is my go-to for my really glam night, when I want my lashes to be over the top and gorgeously full. Affordable price and great mascara- L’Oreal never fails with mascara they have so many amazing ones constantly coming out.
Who should use it- Glamour girls- if you love full, sexy lashes for a night out or even for your everyday look this is perfect for you.
5- RIMMEL SCANDALEYES MASCARA- £6.99
This is a great, cheaper alternative to Charlotte Tilbury’s Full Fat Lashes Mascara, and definitely has the same feel and effect as it. This will give length and separation without getting clumpy or messy.
Who should use it- Someone who wants gorgeous looking lashes that are separated, elongated and full but don’t want to spend over £10.00.
1- BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL PUSH UP GEL LINER- £18.50
This is what I am currently using every day and I absolutely adore it. It glides on so effortlessly, and it honestly is one of the easiest eyeliners I have used- and not to mention the blackest. All you do is twist the bottom and the gel comes out ready for you to apply directly onto your eye using the slanted rubber tip. It is long wearing and doesn’t move throughout the day and it is waterproof- it basically isn’t going anywhere and I am obsessed!
Who should use it- Those who want a thick, dramatic cat eye liner. It can be used for a thin liner but I would recommend this for anyone who loves a good cat eye.
2- RIMMEL EXAGGERATE LIQUID EYE LINER- £4.99
I have been using this for years. It is my go-to when I want a thin liner on my upper lash line, but nothing too dramatic. It is very black, smooth and doesn’t smudge. I have nothing but amazing things to say about this liner because not only is it amazing but it is super affordable so it’s easy to keep going back for more. Amazing, trusty, black liquid liner that is perfect for everyone.
Who should use it- Everyone! You can literally achieve any look with this eyeliner- thick, winged, bold, thin.. you name it you can do it with this liner and it will stay put all day.
3- URBAN DECAY 24HR GLIDE ON LINER PENCIL- £15.50
This is my all time favourite eye liner pencil. It is smooth, silky and true to it’s name being a ‘glide on’ pencil because it literally melts into your skin giving you the perfect eye liner look. You can use this for anything- waterline eyeliner, winged liner or even just a subtle smoky eye liner. These also come in a range of other gorgeous colours so if you’re looking for a great pencil liner in an array of colours make sure to test these out!
Who should use it- If you are a fan of pencil liners over liquid then this is for you- some people find it hard to work with liquid liners as they can be hard to perfect. Start of with an amazing pencil liner like this as a base and then go over the top with a liquid to get the perfect dark eyeliner.
4- BOBBI BROWN GEL LINER- £19.00
This gel liner is amazing because you can create a variety of different looks with it. You can do a really thin, subtle line or go for a full thick cat eye- it’s entirely up to you with this liner. I’d like to think of this as a universal eye liner because although it comes with it’s own brush, you can choose to use any brush that suits you (unlike all the other liners which you have to use a specific tip to apply)- if you have an angled brush you think works perfectly then you can use it hand in hand with this gel liner. Pay off is amazing, lasts all day and doesn’t smudge.
Who should use it- Again, everyone! It is what I like to think as the universal gel liner because no matter what you’re looking to achieve, this can make it happen.
5- RIMMEL SCANDALEYES MICROLINER PEN- £5.49
This is really great eye liner pen that has lovely colour payoff, and can provide a thin to thick liner depending on what you’re looking for. It is super affordable and one of the best drug store eyeliners that I use and love. It has a seriously pointed and precise tip that can create a perfect cat eye or a simple yet sharp line. It dries matte, and doesn’t move or transfer throughout the day.
Who should use it- Someone who is looking for a great eyeliner, but doesn’t want to spend a lot of money- this one is amazing and won’t leave you disappointed.
