On a daily basis, I try to keep my makeup down to a minimum. I’m not one of these girls who looks amazing with a fun face of makeup on – it just makes me look older, and really, who wants that?! So on special occasions, I ‘up’ the glamour stakes by amplifying my everyday looks. Rather than my usual slick of ‘Boy Brow’ and bare lashes, I go for a dramatic mascara which pumps everything up. My choice? Benefit’s They’re Real mascara – a formula which promises to amp up volume and lengthen lashes, whilst leaving them looking super dark.
I think what separates They’re Real from the competition is the spiky plastic brush. Each of the spikes grab each lash individually, combing them out and coating them with an even layer of mascara. And the result? Lashes which go on for days. Super black, and very dramatic, this is a huge difference from the first slick! I’m obsessed with the volume and length this gives me, and I don’t even need to add falsies to look ‘done.’ It also lasts throughout the evening, without flaking or smudging. No wonder it’s one of the UK’s favourite formulas!
