From sweltering heat to ocean swims, we’ve found the best mascaras for everything summer throws at you.
The Body+Soul editors are a discerning bunch, so when they recommend the best running shoes, or the sleep aids that actually work, or sustainable swaps that look as good as they feel, we suggest you take note. Each week we’ll be sharing a handpicked list of the best buys for your health and wellness, so keep your eyes peeled for The Edit.
The best strengthening mascara
For those with weak or damaged lashes, waterproof formulations can be too harsh, so use a light-handed sweep of a keratin-enriched formula like this one, instead.
The best mascara for contact wearers
Made for sensitive eyes and with contact-lense wearers in mind, this micro-aerated formula adds volume without weighing your lashes down.
The best mascara for sensitive eyes
Ideal for sensitive eyes, this non-irritating tubing formula adds volume, length and lash separation with each coat.
The best tubing mascara
A handy alternative to regular waterproof formulas, tubing mascaras wrap the lashes in a polymer, making them ideal for hot days. Not only is this smudge-proof, it’s easy to take off, too.
The best clean mascara
Clean formulas can be water-resistant, too. Formulated with almond and avocado oils, this nourishes lashes while staying put.
The best curling mascara
Both smudge-resistant and flake-free, this polymer-based formula has a dual-fibre brush for long-wearing lift.
The mascara for the long haul
Designed with a “smudge shield”, this resists humidity, high temperatures and even a strenuous workout.
The best budget mascara
This good-value wand hits all the marks: nourishing ingredients, definition and volume, and a sweat-proof finish.
The best pharmacy mascara
Waterproof mascara can too often leave your lashes clumpy and dry, but this nourishing formula with vitamin E keeps them feeling soft and silky, and looking smudge-free.
