Is Black Mascara Really The Best?
Have you always worn black mascara? Black seems to be the default choice of most women. But is it right for you?
Black mascara is great for those with naturally black or dark brown hair but for those with brown (like me) or blonde hair, brown or brown/black mascara is more flattering.
Black can be ‘overpowering’ and look too stark or contrasting against paler features – and fake too. How could your lashes ever be naturally black when your hair is blonde (or red or auburn, for that matter)? Black mascara has the potential to look ‘tacky’ against paler features.
Swap to a brown or brown/black mascara – you’ll still have darkness you need for definition but without the harshness of a true black.
Try it and see if you can tell the difference! It should harmonise better with your natural colourings.
My fave true brown mascara is Mary Kay Cosmetic’s Lash Love in ‘I ♥ Brown’. will also better suit natural redheads and those with naturally warm colourings (light those in the ‘Spring’ or ‘Autumn’ colour seasons) – plus it makes blue or green eye POP!
One exception when black mascara is a must: On the occasion you wear very dark eye makeup, go black – you’ll need it for your lashes to stand out against a dark, bright or dramatic backdrop.
Right now? I’m wearing blue mascara. It’s just a brighter, more fun addition to my makeup that I’ve been loving for the past few months…and I don’t see me going back…
