A good mascara is an essential weapon in everyone's beauty kit. And there are no sweeter words to hear than "Are those your real lashes?".
With the best mascara, lashes become lengthened, volumised and separated, all without fiddle and fuss of glue and tweezers (but we still love you too, false lashes).
From old classics to new and exciting modern formulas, there are so many mascaras to choose from, but when you find the one, you'll know.
And that's when you should take extra care not to over-pump (it'll dry the formula out - fast) or if it's the wand you love, you'll learn to clean it and keep it regardless of the next tube you try.
Pick from our round-up of the very best mascaras out there (both luxe and luscious finds, and high street Holy Grails) and you'll be on your way to your best flutter yet...
