Coloured Mascara – do or don’t?

12 Jul

I was reading in the Evening Standard last night that colourful mascara is back in. Now while this appeals to my inner tweenager, is it something I can get away with in my twenties? Especially when my eyes are a colour affectionately known as ‘poo brown’ rather than a lovely crystal blue that looks beautiful with anything?

Well, it looks pretty sophisticated here at Stella McCartney – I think this look would be office appropriate (although working at a hair magazine, pretty much anything goes! Except suits/nudity.)

Coloured mascara also appeared on the Dior catwalk, a bit funkier this time in vivid pink.

And as you can see here it even works on brown eyes like mine!

How to achieve this look then? At £5.19 a pop, Barry M Lengthening Mascara seems a good way to go to try this trend out on the cheap – especially as it’s probably not something you’re going to want to wear every day (get Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara for that – literally the best thing ever!)
