One of the most common questions I get asked is...
"How can I stop my mascara from smudging underneath my eyes?"
There are several reasons why this might be occurring - and primarily the root of the cause will be if you are wearing a non-waterproof mascara. Having oily skin, applying a face oil under your foundation and not setting your makeup properly can all contribute to the dreaded panda eyes.
The easiest way to combat this is to use a good quality waterproof mascara. To be honest, I always wear waterproof - then I don't need to worry about getting caught in the rain, a sneaky bout of hay fever or watching a sad movie (I'm not crying, you are).
Personally, I have tried so many mascaras over the years. We all have a favourite foundation, a must-have powder or go-to lipstick but I have found finding my holy grail mascara such a challenge! I have worked my work through clumpy applications, so-called volumising formulas and flaky fibres to bring you my top recommendations for fabulous fluttery lashes that won't transfer on to your skin.
