How to use coloured mascara
Wearing makeup has been a trend since the Ancient Egypt. In those years people resorted to eye makeup as a way to protect themselves against the evil spirits and to make them look more beautiful, of course. Those deep-set eyes really enticed one! Now, products designed by powerhouses such as Dior, Guerlain, and Chanel, has focused more on beautifying people, especially women, who, on a daily basis, must be both glamorous and powerful. There is nothing better than beautifully coloured eyes to confer both features. Of late, coloured mascara has gained favour with women, and seemingly this trend has come to stay.
Now, when it comes to applying coloured mascara, some special tips are in order. Because of its nature and specificity, it requires an extra care with its application. Here are some tips for you:
Compliments come from complements
If you are into applying eyeshades in addition to the coloured mascara, make sure to use complementary colours instead of matching colours. One of green hue is best used in combination with pink eye shadows, while a violet one goes perfectly with golden eye shadow. Here, it is important also to pay attention to the colour of your eyes, as they are the aspect you want to stand out.
Try the 50 / 50
If you want a more reserved look, you should try using the fifty-fifty formula: closer to the base of your eyelashes, you apply your favourite colour, and you add a finer coat of black one on the extremity of your eyelashes. This will make them look more serene, perfect for a day at office, where you want to draw people’s attention for the right reasons.
Thicken your eyelashes
Whether you have really fine eyelashes or they are of a light tone, you can thicken them by coating both of their sides. The principal thing here is that when you are at it, alternately look up and down, so applying it gets easier and the coverage gets more even. Also, if you want the opposite effect, hold the brush at a vertical angle when putting on your favourite product, so you will achieve a more natural finish.
Don’t add too much information
If you are colouring your eyelashes, the star of the night are your eyes. Thus, you should consider applying very neutral colours to the other areas of your face. The more colour you add to your eyes, the less colour the rest of the face gets. You don’t want to greet people with a “hello, I put on makeup”, but “hello, I am glamorous and have a perfect taste”.
