Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, Zao makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.
A wand is included with all refills due to hygiene regulations, but please note that a lot of wildlife charities will take old mascara wands as they are extremely useful for removing things such as fly eggs and larva from the fur and feathers of animals.

Start with the upper lashes, holding the brush horizontally close to the root, move up in a zigzag motion while you are looking down. Concentrate on the ends to enlarge the eye and on the centre to open up the eyes. Gently tap the eye lashes when applying mascara to the lower lashes, ensuring that you don’t overload them.
Zao Beauty Tip:
Mascara is the key item in your beauty kit, just a touch of mascara can work wonders! Some tips for a quick and easy beauty routine: before you put on mascara, always make sure your eyelashes are dry and free of cream or oil, then dust them with powder. This preparation will ensure your mascara won't smudge and will last even longer. Open the mascara gently and in one movement! Avoid pumping to keep the product on the brush, but make sure that you haven’t overloaded it. If so, gently remove any excess with a tissue and not at the opening of the bottle. If you have a few drops of mascara on your skin after you’ve applied it, wait until it is dry, then gently wipe it off with a cotton swab. If you are already wearing foundation, you can also dab a little on the cotton swab before removing the mascara to ensure your complexion remains even.

Why Lucy Loves
Did you know a lot of makeup contains quite a few toxic chemicals such as Parabens and Phthalates. These chemicals have links to health problems and can also feed problem skin. As someone who has always had problem skin I was so happy to come across Zao. This mascara is one of a kind in that it comes with a recyclable refill, Although this product isn't plastic free the refill is made from PP and is 100% recyclable. The wand can also be donated to wildlife charities. This is the best sustainable liquid mascara I have seen on the market so really happy to be stocking this brand.
