When choosing a volumising mascara look at the brushes as well as the formula. Brush wands need to get right to the roots whilst the easy wearing formula defines and coats each lash to create volume.

If you want extreme, longer lashes that really lift from the roots to make even the tiniest lashes appear longer, then lengthening formulated mascaras will really lift from the roots to lengthen those lashes to the absolute max.

Not everyone likes to use an eyelash curler so to get the same results opt for a mascara with lash curl action. To build curl intensity apply a few coats.

Waterproof mascaras are specially formulated to 'stay put' for longer and to wishstand the weather and leisure activities. To remove, use an oil-based make up remover that breaks the formula without damaging the lashes.

Debenhams Beauty Editor Tips
'When applying get as close to the roots as possible for best lash-results. Don't keep pumping air into the bottle as this dries out the liquid quicker.'

'When choosing the right mascara for you first decide do you want a large or small wand? Generally the larger wands will give more of a faux lash effect with thicker longer lashes, and a small petite wand will give a more natural finish.'

'Use a lash primer before applying mascara to really give a wow factor to the eyes. Lancôme's Cils Booster helps separate
the lashes, thicken and also makes application smoother while nourishing the hair.'
