Another popular makeup trend that’s been going around this summer is coloured mascara. I was browsing the Sephora stand the other day and I found the Full Action mascara in a beautiful turquoise colour and I succumbed to the trend! Today I’ll show you 3 looks that you can create with coloured mascara, it doesn’t have to be green, I just find that this colour really compliments my eye colour.
First we have the full on coloured mascara look, with the mascara applied all over the lashes. For this look I used the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Inked in Pink as a base and then went on with the pinky bronze shade from my Wet’n’Wild palette in Comfort Zone on top of it all over the lid. The color tattoo helped to intensify the eyeshadow on top. On my crease, I used the MAC Omega shadow and for eyeliner I went for the W7 Automatic Fine Eyeliner in Black, because I wanted a very thin line with a very slight flick and this one is ideal for that. I also highlighted my browbone with the champagne shade from the palette. In order to apply coloured mascara to your lashes and help it show its true colour you need to use a mascara primer to counteract the natural colour of your lashes. I used the E.L.F. Mascara Primer which is white and it pretty much left my eyelashes transparent. I put the Sephora Full Action mascara in Lagoon all over my lashes and you can see the result below. I also paired it with a pinky lip using the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Elusive.
Next is the 'ombre lashes' look. For this one I used the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and on my crease I blended some of the bronzy brown shade from the palette with a fluffy brush. I lined my eyes with the Korres Eyeliner Pencil in Brown very close to the lashline and with a small flick on the outer corner. I applied the Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume Waterproof mascara both on the upper and the lower lashes and I used the coloured mascara only on the tips of my upper lashes. This gives a beautiful ombre effect and a subtle pop of colour. On my lips is the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Electric Orange.
The final look is with the turquoise mascara on the bottom lashes. For this one I used the Sephora Waterproof Jumbo Liner in Taupe all over the lid, crease and on my lower lash line and I blended it with the MAC Omega shadow on the crease. I also lined my upper lash line with the Catrice Kohl Kajal in Blues Willis and blended it out to soften it with a pencil brush. On the upper lashes I applied the Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume Waterproof mascara again and on the lower lashes the E.L.F. Mascara Primer with the Sephora Full Action mascara on top. You can see close ups in the photos below. On my lips is the MAC Snob lipstick.
I think my favourite is the last one because I like how unique the mascara looks on the lower lashes. Which one is your favourite? Will you dare a coloured mascara this summer? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to find out what you think!
