11 mascaras that will last until your toddler's bedtime

Section: Skin & Hair

Just because you're a new mama doesn't mean you don't want to look glam. Of course, you're getting a little less sleep, you're skincare routine has taken a back seat, and your joggers probably have a porridge stain. Hey, no judgments!

Finding the perfect mascara is tricky at the best of times, but even harder when you're routine involves asking your toddler to put their shoes on 19203 times. 

Sometimes it seems impossible to find a trusty mascara that gives you luscious lashes without the clumps, without the flakes, and one that will last you all day. 

We have made a list of our favourite mascaras that will definitely see you through the day until your little tot has finally hit the hay.
