After you’ve spent hours trying to perfectly apply false lashes, you know they’re going to come unstuck in the corners and slide halfway down your face before the night is even over – not exactly the kind of photo you want to find yourself tagged in the morning after.

So, to save you time and money, we’ve picked our favourite lengthening mascaras available on the high street, that are guaranteed to make your lashes appear longer and give the appearance of falsies with the hassle of trimming lashes to fit your eye or getting messy with the eyelash glue.

The budget mascara on our list is Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara, an absolute bargain at £4.99! This mascara helps to curl and lengthen lashes, so is a must buy for those with shorter lashes or those with lashes that have no curl at all.

Rimmel’s Scandal-eyes Retro Glam Mascara is a great budget buy at £6.99. This mascara helps lashes look longer and fuller, think Twiggy in her 60s photo shoots!

For those of you with a bigger budget opt for Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara. It costs £16 but also does a great job of conditioning lashes without clumping, giving a fuller and longer looking lash.

Splurge on Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara at £19.50, which lengthens, curls, adds volume, lifts and separates. In the colour jet black, its long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out.

To give your lashes an extra boost you should invest in a pair of eyelash curlers to really maximise them, even the cheaper ones do a pretty good job!
