Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - LOOKBOOK -

1 FOR REACH­ING THE TINI­EST LASHES

The mini wand of the in­n­is­free Skinny Lon­g­long­cara, $15, al­lows you to reach the tini­est of lashes and coat­ing them with an ul­tra-light­weight for­mula. Its small brush size also means it holds less mas­cara, al­low­ing you to build on lash length, with­out the fear of clump­ing.

2 FOR CLUMP-FREE LASHES

De­signed to give lashes max­i­mum curl, the shu ue­mura Pe­tal Mas­cara, $50, del­i­cately lifts lashes for an eye-open­ing ef­fect. The brush is de­signed for Asian lashes, catch­ing on to the tini­est lashes and coat­ing them with­out feel­ing stiff.

3 FOR SKY-HIGH LASHES

The Too Faced Bet­ter Than Sex Wa­ter­proof Mas­cara, $35, does not kid around. The hour­glass-shaped brush hugs the lashes, de­liv­er­ing a clump-free for­mula that length­ens and vo­lu­mises – all in just one coat.

4 FOR THE WA­TER BABY

Of­fer­ing up to 12 times the vol­ume, the Lancôme Mon­sieur Big Wa­ter­proof Mas­cara, $48, lets you weather through the day with­out smudg­ing. Need ex­tra oomph? Use a length­en­ing mas­cara be­fore this one for lashes that go to the ex­treme.

5 FOR LARGER-THAN-LIFE LASHES

The Ma­monde Big Eye Long & Curl Mas­cara, $22, of­fers ex­cep­tional curl and helps lashes stay lifted for up to 24 hours. The wa­ter- and se­bum-proof for­mula cre­ates a high sur­face ten­sion on the lashes, so fluid rolls right off with­out smudg­ing.

6 FOR VA-VA-VOOM VOL­UME

The wand of the Kate Tokyo Lash For­mer WP – Vol­ume, $22, fits the cur­va­ture of the eye, coat­ing each lash from base to tip eas­ily. The 0.5-mm fi­bres lend vol­ume and the for­mula is also sweat-, se­bum- and wa­ter­re­sis­tant – ba­si­cally a mas­cara you can count on, es­pe­cially if you’re spend­ing the day out­doors.

7 FOR LUS­CIOUS LASHES

The lat­est ad­di­tion to their mas­cara lineup, NARS Cli­max Mas­cara, $42, has a brush head that ta­pers at the end so you can reach the small­est lashes at the cor­ners. The Lash Mois­ture Com­plex means you can layer on its creamy for­mula, with­out the fear of clump­ing. Wear a coat (or two) dur­ing the day, and then add on for max­i­mum drama dur­ing the night.

8 FOR THE MULTI-TASKER

Like a Rus­sian doll, the smaller brush of the PIXI Lash­Lift 188, $28, nests within the big­ger one, mak­ing it one of the most ver­sa­tile mascaras avail­able. Use the larger brush to cre­ate vol­ume and length, and the smaller brush to reach the in­ner cor­ners of the eye, and the lashes on the lower lash line.

9 FOR THE DRAMA QUEEN

The Hour­glass Ex­treme Lash Mas­cara, $46, gives amaz­ing lift and vol­ume to lashes with a build­able for­mula that doesn’t clump. Short, ta­pered bris­tles al­low you to reach smaller lashes on the in­ner cor­ner of your eyes, as well as the ones on the lower lash line.

10 FOR NAT­U­RAL FLUT­TER

For­mu­lated to be smudge-proof and re­sis­tant to wa­ter and se­bum, the LANEIGE Lash-Fes­sional Mas­cara in 02 Wine Brown, $40, gives lashes a nat­u­ral curl. The wand is sig­nif­i­cantly shorter than most mascaras, mak­ing it easy to con­trol and ma­neu­ver.

11 FOR THE RULE-BREAKER

Touted the “sex-proof” mas­cara, Ur­ban De­cay’s Trou­ble­maker Mas­cara, $38, will with­stand sweat and hu­mid­ity, all while giv­ing wimpy lashes the length, vol­ume and flut­ter they de­serve. The tiny hooks on the sil­i­cone brush grab lashes and coat them with a long­wear­ing for­mula with­out ever clump­ing.

12 FOR FAUX LASH EF­FECT

Vol­ume, length and curl – it seems like the Yves Saint Lau­rent Beaute The Shock Wa­ter­proof Mas­cara, $60, is your best bet at cre­at­ing lus­cious lashes sim­i­lar to that of wear­ing falsies. Plus, this it­er­a­tion of The Shock Mas­cara now comes in a wa­ter­proof for­mula that lasts you through the day and night.
