Finding the best coloured mascara to match your eye colour works in very much the same way as matching your eyeshadow to compliment your eyes. It’s all down to colour theory.
I won’t bore you with the ins and out because let’s be honest, no one is really here for a full-blown colour lesson. Instead, I’ll leave you with basic rule that colours opposite each other on the colour wheel are complimentary and following this simple is the trick to finding the right colour make your personal eyes pop.
Let’s jump into it
Coloured mascara may be daunting to some; it’s not a makeup trend we tend to come across too often during our everyday jaunts, but it should be. Personally, when I imagine coloured mascara I think of statement, bold pops of playful colour, but in reality coloured mascara doesn’t always need to be so daring.
If you’re a bit frightened to go all out in your first few attempts of wearing coloured mascara, then opting for a more subtle application and hue may be the way to go.
How to wear coloured mascara
If you are looking for a subtle way to wear your coloured mascara, then applying straight over your natural lashes is the best option. This will keep the colour of your lashes looking understated with a more subdued pigment but still remain striking.
Finding the best coloured mascara to match your eye colour can be a fabulous makeup statement. Having your coloured lashes as the showstopper of your makeup look is also a good idea. If you’re just starting out experimenting with coloured mascara then try pairing alongside a stripped back makeup. A pop of mascara colour goes great with a natural makeup so inject some playful energy into your appearance. A nude lip, neutral, light eyeshadow and a stripped down foundation base is the ultimate canvas to allow a colour mascara to take centre stage.
Another great alternative is to pair your lash and eyelid colours to create a seamless blend. This makeup look appears super high fashion and is a great way to get playful. A go big or go home type makeup look that will have everyone staring, but in a good way I promise, everyone will be envious of your confidence.
