Colored mascara

We all love mascara, it is actually my favorite beauty product for the eyes because it makes your lashes longer, fuller and it brightens the eye making it look bigger.But  today I'm proposing you an alternative to the classic black mascara.You can get inspired by the runways and add color not only on your eyeshadow but on your mascara too.
If you plan on changing your usual black or brown mascara then chose one depending on your eye color and the time of day you're going to use it.For a party you can go crazy with any color you want but for a day look chose a more subtle one.Although it looks great and it makes your eyes pop I don't recommend to wear it at your daily office job.

Chose your shade

The safest way you can experiment with a colored mascara on your pretty eyelashes is by using a blue shade.It looks good on everyone, even if you're a blonde or a brunette.Just think how beautiful would look turquoise blue lashes with light blonde hair!
 A purple shade flatters most skin tones and it looks good especially on brown and hazel eyes because it emphasizes the green tones in your eyes.
You can even go for a bold green shade on your mascara or why not a pink/fuchsia if you dare.

Tips for wearing bright mascara:

  • use an eyelash curler before applying mascara (you should do this no matter the color for a bigger effect)
  • apply it only at the tips of your lashes for a subtle effect
  • for a crazy party you can go bold by using one color on top lashes and a different one on the bottom
  • for a deep color apply two coats of mascara and allow lashes to dry before the second coat
  • use a black liner to add contrast and emphasize the color of the mascara or use neutral eyeshadow tones
  • if you just want to see how you'd look with colored mascara you can apply your normal mascara and before it dries out add colored eyeshadow with a brush on top of you eyelashes while looking down
