Best Mascara: YSL Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll, €32.50
?It’s impossible to find a mascara that suits everyone’s expectations; length, volume, curl, definition, hold – However, all of my clients adored this. The brush has lots of little spines, which prevent clumping, and it really bigs up lashes with just two coats.? Zo? Clark
Best Eyeliner: L?Or?al Paris Super Liner Blackbuster, €9.99
?Coming from a girl who cannot live without her black liquid liner, this one’s a find. Its black inky finish creates bold, striking eyes; the solid marker-like pen makes it easy to apply; and it lasts the eight hours it promises to.? Kim O?Sullivan
Best Budget Eye Shadow: Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow,??4.49
?I love the look and feel of these metallic eye shadows. They’re affordable and long-lasting, have punchy pigments, and are great for adding on-trend colours and finishes to your collection for a snip.? Christine Lucignano
Best Eye Shadow: Lanc’me Hypn’se Palette, €27
?This collection of shadows includes some of the best shades Lanc’me has offered in decades. Plus, the picture tutorials enclosed show you exactly where to apply them and how to vary it up for day or night. Better still, the magnetic casing means I never lose the brush applicators.? Christine Lucignano
Best Budget Mascara: Maybelline The Rocket Volum? Express Mascara, €11.99
Best Brow Pencil: L?Or?al Paris Super Liner Brow Artist, €8.45
?Scoring an eyebrow hat trick, this pencil has wax at one end to shape your brows and give the pigments from the pencil at the other end something to grab onto. Brush into shape with the comb on the lid for triumphant arches.? Dearbhla Keenan
Best Brow Thickener: Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara, €7.69
?This product is just shy of perfection! The ball shape on the end of the wand is perfect for defining brows with a light touch, and the finish and pigment level is akin to a luxury product three times the price.? Christine Lucignano
