The makeup equivalent of your much-needed morning cup of joe, the perfect mascara (and its application) have a way of making you look instantly more awake – even more refreshed. Mascara has outlived all the crazy makeup trends and is the most popular of all makeup products. So, much like a BFF, every girl needs to have a few really great ones that she knows she can really rely on.

Here are our go-to mascaras for volume, length and even when you want a natural look, plus a step-by-step eye makeup routine to help you make the most of whichever one you choose.

Step 1: Apply eye liner and eye shadow if/as desired.

Step 2: Curl lashes with an eyelash curler.

Plume Curl & Lift Lash CurlerGo-to eyelash curler: Plume Curl & Lift Lash Curler

Want to emphasize the curl? Add this eyelash curler to your regime.

To Use: Open eyes wide. Insert and centre lashes. With curler pad positioned at the base of  lash line, hold handles firmly and gently squeeze. Hold for a few seconds, then open curler slowly to completely release. Repeat for a more intense curl. 

Step 3: Apply mascara to achieve the look you want

Sometimes a night out with the girls calls for a very dramatic eye. In that case, I have this in my makeup bag as my go-to plumping mascara. Not only do my lashes look like I’m wearing false eyelashes (without all the trouble of actually wearing them), but it’s also very long lasting.

For long, curvaceous lashes that defy gravity, go with this gem. Pair this mascara with eyeliner and you’re ready for a day at work. I get a solid lash look without the drama. Bonus points: it’s also perfect for sensitive eyes.

    My go-to mascara is L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes, the non-waterproof type. No smears or smudges, and lasts all day on me. To remove it, I use a generations-old standby: Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser. It takes off everything! (It’s a bonus that both of these products are available at, too!)
