The whole point of mascara is to crank up the volume, thickness and length of your lashes. Or, in short, to make sure they stand out, right? So why settle for basic black or brown when you can demand attention with eye-catching coloured mascara? Yes, great lash coloured mascara is officially back, and we have a feeling it’s going to stick around for a while. So, what are you waiting for? Here are our top tips for making the most of this daring 80s throwback.
How to wear it
The best way to wear coloured mascara is to keep the rest of your eye makeup simple. A bit of liner is fine, but you probably want to steer clear of any eyeshadows – unless, of course, they are nude or pastel. Feeling particularly bold? Match your liner with your great coloured mascara or add a lipstick pout in the same colour.
It’s also important to choose the best coloured mascara to suit your skin tone. The great news is that you can’t go wrong with blue mascara as it looks great on almost anyone. Take it up a colour (or two), and you’ll find a hot pink mascara really complements ladies with blue eyes, whereas brown-eyed girls look incredible with purple lashes.
Coloured mascara we love
One of the ultimate coloured mascara products at the moment is the pigment-rich NYX Professional Makeup Color Mascara. Get it in pink, blue, green and purple.
Another top choice is the volumising Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara, which comes in nine different shades including gold and emerald green.
Go on, admit it! You’re definitely eyeing out this trend. Lovely, lengthened lashes with a splash of colour for effect – and the attention? What’s not to love?
