With Spring Racing Carnival and the wedding and party season well underway, a great mascara will help to form the base for your amazing makeup look.
Whether you love to wear a sultry smokey eye or prefer a fresher, more feminine makeup aesthetic, mascara is your biggest ally for framing your face, opening up the eyes and pulling a makeup look together.
We round up four of Kiana Beauty's best-selling mascaras and give you the low down on how to pick the best mascara for you.
Good for: Easy going, low maintenance types, contact lens wearers or hayfever sufferers who usually end up with running mascara.
If you love elegance without any drama, then this mascara is for you!
The microfibre bristles of this mascara wand go deep into the lash bed to elongate, separate and coat each lash in rich and glossy black pigment, lasting for 15 hours.
Your lashes will achieve extraordinary length, without smudging, flaking or wearing away throughout the day.
This magic mascara resists high temperatures, high humidity and perspiration, making it the perfect mascara for all occasions and seasons.
It is ophthalmologist tested, fragrance-free and suitable for contact lens wearers.
Good for: People who want the look of false lashes or even eyelash extensions, without the hassle or cost.
Don't underestimate this mascara. It is the makeup equivalent of the little black dress in its ability to turn heads.
Max Lash Mascara will give you the same look as professional lash extensions, without the associated glue or mess.
In just seconds and in the comfort of your home, your lashes will be thicker, bolder and longer.
This mascara comes with two different tubes:
1. The application gel is like your regular mascara wand, which you use to apply the application gel to your lashes.
2. Before this gel dries, you use the other, slightly smaller tube with the 3D fibres, and swipe these fibres onto your lashes, then seal them with one last coat of application gel for maximum impact lashes.
Good for: Those with sparse lashes who need help creating beautiful, thick lashes with definition and length.
We love that this mascara leaves the lashes feeling soft and natural-looking with thanks to the conditioning ingredients inside it.
The specially developed brush allows you to create gorgeous volume, minus the clumps, and will help you to easily separate and define your lashes.
For daytime, or a more natural look, apply one coat of mascara.
For more drama or at nighttime, add a few more coats, particularly to the outer corner lashes to define the eyes more. Don't forget to give the lower lashes a bit of a boost too.
Good for: People who need 24-hour staying power on days when you head out straight from the office.
The secret weapon for this mascara is that it uses polymers to create tight, long-wearing bonds around each lash, even the tiniest of lashes so that your lashes look soft and flexible and never hard and crispy.
The thin mascara wand lets you get to the base of every lash to apply a full and even coat to create defined lashes which won't smudge or smear.
We love that this mascara has 24-hour staying power, even lasting through rain, sweat, humidity and tears.
You don't need any makeup remover to take this brilliant mascara off. It washes off easily with warm water.
