Beauty: Coloured Mascaras

Brightly coloured mascaras are making a big comeback in the Style World, and we feel compelled to let you know exactly how to wear it.

Now, before you dismiss it as a tired old fad from the Eighties and Nineties…don’t. It’s a whole different ball-game now, with colours to compliment each and every eye colour.

Let me give you some fresh and up to date ways to wear this trend whilst still looking sophisticated and modern.

First and foremost: always remember that wearing colored mascara is a statement in itself and the goal is to look chic, so keep your make-up simple by applying only a little or no eyeliner to the lash line, plus only wear a light blush.


For hazel/brown eyes

Green mascara looks best on hazel or brown eyes, as it actually lightens the appearance of your eye colour.

For blue/green eyes

Girls with green (like yours truly) or blue eyes look fabulous in purple or plum mascara. These hues are dark enough that they imitate the look of traditional, black mascara but look especially intense and eye-catching when the light hits them!

A word of warning: Never match your eyeliner to a coloured mascara, this defeats the purpose of the product and creates a flat, monochromatic look; instead use a subtle and contrasting shade.

And if you’re feeling a little sky and skeptical about trying this look, give this pro trick a whirl: apply your usual black or brown mascara and then add just a hint of coloured mascara to the tips of the your lashes for a subtle yet pretty look.

Coloured mascaras are especially fun and flirty for evenings out as they add a pop to accompany a dressed up look! With these easy to do make up tricks, you can ROCK coloured mascara!
