When you think of mascara, you probably think of black. Perhaps brown. But what about violet? Cobalt electric? Pink? Although it may appear scary, coloured mascaras are the simplest and most surefire method to add a splash of colour to your regular makeup look. Colorful mascaras are applied similarly to black mascara, but the shade strength and formula are both buildable. If you want a more delicate effect, apply one fast swipe to only your top lashes using a product from Maybelline or Eyeko. Wiggle and stroke the brush across both your top and bottom lashes with a mascara from Benefit or L’Oréal Paris for more drama.
