So, whether you’re after a sophisticated and natural makeup look or dramatic bold glam, look no further for your perfect mascara match to achieve luscious lashes.
Choosing the right mascara is an absolute game-changer when it comes to achieving your desired makeup look. Some offer length or volume and others are best suited for definition and lift.
Lengthening mascaras work wonders for those with short lashes, helping to achieve stunning length.

For an eyes-wide-open, eye-catching lash lift look, a lifting mascara is worth its weight in gold. Napoleon Perdis Next Dimension Lash-Boosting Mascara is a double duty hero. Its long-wearing, clump-free formula is designed to lift, lengthen, and curl each lash to eye-conic heights.

Beyond your lash type, your desired makeup look also influences your choice. Whether you’re aiming for a fresh ‘no-makeup’ look or a bold, dramatic effect, having multiple mascara options in your makeup bag is an essential.
Different mascara brush types (mascara wands) are specifically designed to cater to different types of eyelashes. Whether you opt to use an eyelash curler before application (we swear by it), having the right wand on hand already wins half the battle!
Let’s take a look at the different mascara brushes on offer:
This is the most common mascara brush, versatile enough to work its magic on most lash types. Its traditional shape is a perfect balance between bristle density and length, allowing for easy and even application. The wand shape brush gives your natural lashes an enhanced appearance, which can be worn both day and night.
Short or sparse lashes often crave extra attention and a mascara with a comb brush is the answer. Perfect for separating and defining each individual lash, comb wands also work well for thin eyelashes. These wands prevent dreaded clumping and help achieve a more natural look. When using a comb brush, ensure you give your lashes a generous coating of mascara. We suggest using a volumising mascara with this combo, as it will enhance your eyes, giving a fuller and thicker effect.
To achieve your desired look, you’ll need to focus on your lower lashes as well as the outer and inner corners. These often ‘forgotten’ lashes could prevent taking your eyelashes to eye-iconic lengths. This is where pointed mascara wands are the hero of the show.They are specifically designed for reaching the inner and outer corners of your lashes and perfect for those hard-to-reach little sparse lashes. They add an extra touch of definition and length for all lash types.
A curved brush is designed to mimic the curved shape of your natural lashes. It provides a gentle lift and curl from your lash line making it a popular choice for straight eyelashes or anyone looking for an extra lift. For a more dramatic effect, use an eyelash curler to achieve a luscious lash look.
All brush types can vary depending on its density, ranging from thinner to thicker brushes. Usually, thinner brushes will support you in achieving a more separated and feathered lash finish, while thicker brushes are better to achieve a more dramatic and voluminous look.
Waterproof mascaras are excellent for occasions where you require long-lasting, smudge-proof wear; such as weddings or teary-eyed events. You’ll need a hard-working makeup remover to remove, but with so many options available, don’t let this deter you.
Non-waterproof mascara is easier to remove and is more suitable for everyday wear. If you prefer a more comfortable wearing mascara and don’t need your mascara to withstand water or humidity; a non-waterproof mascara is the way to go.
Knowing the basics about mascara formulas, whether you opt for lash-defining mascaras or lengthening mascaras, as well as other eye makeup will help you to embrace your individuality and achieve your desired eye makeup look.
