All brides-to-be would know that it’s almost impossible to avoid a stream of tears running down their perfectly made up face on their big day. Every girl’s secret for crying prettily is a good waterproof mascara, and choosing the right one could not be recommended enough to guarantee mess-free eyes and a smudge-free wedding dress.
Mascaras make your lashes look gorgeous, fuller, darker and longer. But as makeup has wearing time, you’ll have little or no time to do any re-applying at your wedding. You’d want to pick a good mascara that would not only give you what we call the ‘masacara benefit’ but also ensure that you avoid what could end up giving you badly outlined “raccoon eyes”. Choose a mascara that won’t flake or clump to ensure that smuge, clump and flake would be the last thing on your mind on your big day.
