Whether you are wearing a full make-up look for a night out or just a simple fresh face, few women will go without mascara.
It really is a magic product which will finish off any look.
With thousand of different brands, wand shapes, and application lengths, it is hard to know what each mascara will do for you.
So I have narrowed it down to 5 different mascaras that will cover all the bases.
MAC Haute & Naughty
This two-in-one mascara is just genius. The dual-wiper system gives you the option of going for a very naturally defined look or a dramatic full lash effect.
Pulling the wand through the small orifice adds definition, while pulling it through the larger orifice allows you to add volume.
Talk about a one for all mascara, I can honestly say this is one of my top favourites!

Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils
Yes I know this is a little on the pricey side but if you have the money to splurge then go ahead because this product is worth it.
The beautifully-presented golden magic mascara wand does all it promises."A coating film for intensity, a conditioning film for curve, a fixing film for long-lasting effectiveness."
This little number is infused with sensuous oils, leaving the lashes lengthened and flexible. You will definitely feel the false lash effect.
Maybelline Great Lash in Blackest of Black.
Maybelline claim this is 'America's favourite mascara' .
This lash doubling formula applies to the lashes very smoothly without clumping. What I most like about this mascara is that you can continue to apply layer after layer for your desired look.
The jet black colour will really make your own eye colour pop. This mascara is also waterproof, brilliant if you are going on holidays where you will be in and out of the pool.
An award winning product by Lancóme, turn up the volume with this outstanding mascara.
Build your lashes up to 6 times more volume without even a hint of clumping. This wand will separate the lashes when you apply the mascara.
This technique gives an even application throughout - that's what this award-winning mascara is known for.
