To get the most out of your mascara, it’s a good idea to use a lash curler first. Our video guide on Perfectly Curled Lashes will show you which tools to use, and how to pump up the volume with a 3D mascara.
First, choose a mascara that is suited to your needs. A waterproof mascara is perfect if you have an important day ahead, such as a photo shoot or a wedding. A tubing mascara offers excellent coverage, while a 3D mascara will make your eyes look dramatically bigger and bolder. Finish your look with a MAC eye liner and eye shadow.
Apply your mascara by holding the wand horizontally at the base of your lashes, and wiggling to create depth. Then, comb the wand through your eyelashes from the base to the tip. For the ultimate in volume, turn your mascara wand around so that it’s vertical, and apply a little extra mascara at the base of your lashes to make them appear even thicker.

All MAC mascara is suitable for sensitive eyes, since it is ophthalmologist tested and safe for contact lens wearers. If you have sensitive skin, remember to use a gentle makeup remover at the end of the day to keep your eyes clean and free from irritants.
