The Best Cry-Proof Mascaras For Your Wedding Day

{Posting by Julia Bowden, Before the Big Day's Hair & Make-up Expert} Weddings are emotional affairs. I bet the thought of you walking down the aisle this summer, surrounded by all your nearest and dearest is making you well up right this minute!? Ok, ok sorry, I'll quit that right now! I can't stop you blubbing on your wedding day but I can save you from looking like a panda bride {check with Georgia but I think pandas are off trend this season!?}. I've been mascara shopping and dunked my face in a lot of water, to find what is this season's Holy Grail of weep-proof mascaras. The latest cutting-edge mascara technology creates a coating that covers your lashes with little waterproof tubes - yes tubes! Genius! Scroll down for my Top 3 Cry-Proof Mascaras for your wedding day.

Kevyn Aucoin Curling Mascara £20 from Space NK
It doesn't hugely curl the lashes but it's brilliant.  It never rubs off, it's completely waterproof and removal is easy too. Warm water will easily loosen the mascara tubes as you gently rub them off. Score: 5/5.

Blinc Mascara £15 free P&P
It defines and separates, and doesn't ever smudge or run thanks to the clever tube technology. It goes on easily and dries quickly, and it doesn't come off until you remove it with water and apply some pressure with your finger tips. It's not totally waterproof, so not for swimming. It also doesn't give as much volume as it claims but it's definite cry proof! Score: 4/5

L'Oreal Paris Double Extension Beauty Tubes Mascara £11.29 from Boots
A slightly cheaper high street version of the above which works a treat! It doesn't extend quite as well as I hoped, but was brilliantly cry-proof! Score: 4/5 but the cheapest!
