Q: How can I stop mascara ending up under my eyes by the end of a night out? Lara, 41
Our Beauty Expert Karen Sinclair-Drake says the secret is to use a long-lasting, natural waterproof mascara such as Ere Perez Avocado Waterproof Mascara (£18.50) – the only natural waterproof mascara on the market! This is a one-of-a-kind product formulated with organic avocado oils, that nourish and fortify lashes. This mascara will last from early morning to last thing at night. It’s best removed before sleep with a gentle natural oil, such as almond or jojoba. I also love GreenPeople’s Volumising Black or Brown Mascara (£15.50) which contains natural cellulose micro-spheres to give outstanding volume and the unique precision brush offers excellent lash definition.
Try these professional make-up tips to achieve smudge-proof, perfect lashes for your next special event…
Moisturise skin as usual but do not apply any under the eyes.
Ideally, only apply one coat of mascara to the lower lashes to minimise smudging.
If you prefer applying more than one coat, wait until it has completely dried before applying the second.
Keep to a maximum of two coats and separate lashes with a lash comb after each coat.
