Ladies, the quest for sexy, showstopping eyes seems like a never-ending process. You must choose the right mascara to give your eyes that added dose of drama. When you're selecting mascara, you have to consider the color of your lashes for the most natural look possible. For you ladies who have inherited light-colored lashes, you may feel that mascara looks unnatural. Well, you're in luck because there are colors that are sure to flatter your gorgeous peepers.
Ladies who have light-colored lashes usually have pale skin and fair hair, so you want a mascara shade that will add definition, length and color without overpowering your complexion. This is what makes black/brown mascara such a good option for light lashes. It provides the darkness of a black shade, with the understated flattery of a brown tone. The combination of the two colors also works to keep your complexion from looking washed out or pasty.
Naturally dark-colored eyelashes really don't see much of a result when brown mascara is applied, but with light lashes the outcome is totally different. What brown mascara does for pale lashes is subtly darken them without such a drastic transformation. When you are of fair skin, hair and eyelashes, you want to ease into the incorporation of dark colors because they can easily overwhelm your fair tone. Brown mascara is a flattering choice because it gives you the color you need and it's great for daily wear.
First off, yes, black mascara is an intense shade to pull off for light lashes, but it can be done. Since it's quite easy to appear overdone and harsh when you apply black mascara to your fair lashes, you must know what other makeup you need to soften it. Avoid black eyeshadow or heavy black eyeliner when you're wearing black mascara. Instead, choose one or the other to wear at once, but never all of them. The easiest way to pull off the black mascara look is to forgo eyeshadow completely or opt for a subtle, neutral shade that matches your complexion.
One of the newer, and less conventional shades of mascara, a light brown hue is incredibly flattering to light eyelashes. Think of a light brown mascara as having a dark blonde hue, which is just a few shades lighter than your fair tinted lashes. Light blonde and dark blonde work together nicely because they create a balanced contrast, which is the same effect given when you wear light brown mascara on your light eyelashes.
