The Best Mascara

A great mascara is a girls best friend - and when you find the right one you stick with it for life! With the right mascara, your lashes can become thicker, longer and make your eyes stand out. However, with so many on the market choosing the right one for you can be difficult. This is why I put together a list of my top 10 mascaras and tell you which of these are best for lengthening, thickening and lastability...
