Whenever we're in a rush to head out the door in the morning, a little mascara is our trick to looking pulled together. It's easy, and perfect for a busy lifestyle. Just a few swipes and you instantly look more awake and ready for the day!
With mascara being applied so close to the eyes, we prefer to go the natural route. And trust us, they don't disappoint. These mascaras hold up just as well to mainstream ones – in colour payoff, staying power, and more!
Best Lengthening Mascaras

It's an all-natural mascara that lengthens, separates, and glosses your lashes without flaking and clumping! We love the creamy formula that goes on super smooth, its long-lasting power, and the unexpected, delicious smell (thank you cocoa and blackberries)!

Best Waterproof Mascaras
Ere Perez Avocado Volumising Waterproof Mascara
We might be a little biased, but the Ere Perez Avocado Volumizing Waterproof Mascara might be one of the best ones we've tried. It just doesn't budge!
