Mascara brings the finishing touch to eye make-up. It colours and lengthens the eyelashes, intensifying the gaze. It is available in a variety of types: volumising or densifying mascaras are good for particularly long lashes to help make them thicker and more attractive. Lengthening mascaras intensify the gaze of women with somewhat shorter lashes. As for waterproof mascara, it stands up to water and tears.
