On the runways at New York Fashion Week's autumn/winter 2013 shows, natural-looking lashes complemented the hippy outfits at Rodarte, the rugged pieces at Rag & Bone, the luxe dresses at Ralph Lauren, and the minimalist looks at Alexander Wang.

Make Up For Ever's artistic director, Ms Dany Sanz, shows you how to wear mascara for natural-looking, longer lashes - even if yours are short.

Product recommendations are from Ms Sanz and Urban.

Get a mascara with a cone-shaped brush.

Such brushes are tapered at the end and wider at the bottom, making them useful for creating varied lash looks.

Good options are Make Up For Ever's new Smoky Extravagant mascara (photo 1, $44), Diorshow Waterproof Buildable Volume ($52), and Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara (photo 2, $50).
