When it comes to mascara, most people opt for an intense carbon black shade. If you’re someone who swears by black mascara, you’ve probably never picked up a brown tube in your life—unless by mistake. You may be thinking, “Why would anyone wear brown mascara when you can wear black?” We’re here to put that query to rest, because there are quite a few makeup looks and trends that are far better when worn with brown mascara. Don’t believe us? Take a look below.
If you’re sporting newly lightened locks hair color, it’s not a bad idea to go lighter with your mascara too. While blondes can totally rock black mascara, a brown shade will look less harsh against your pale strands.
Running out the door to pick up groceries or laundry detergent? While errands certainly don’t call for a full face of makeup, applying a few coats of brown mascara is a quick and easy way to accent your natural beauty without whipping out your entire makeup bag.
If you have brown eyes, brown mascara is a seriously easy way to accent their rich chocolate color. A brown hue will allow your eyes to appear brighter and richer with just a few swipes of your mascara wand.
Whether you barely wear makeup on a daily basis or sport a soft smoky eye every single day, brown mascara is perfect for any daytime makeup look. A brown shade is much more subtle than black, which can come across as harsh for an everyday makeup look. Whether you’re off to work or having a picnic in the park with friends, brown mascara will tie together your look.
Let’s not neglect your bottom lashes! While your upper lashes may be your main focus when it comes to applying mascara, coating your bottom lashes can help tie together your entire eye makeup look. A brown mascara is the perfect way to create bold bottom lashes that won’t overpower the rest of your eye makeup look.
Makeup trend alert: The no makeup, makeup look continues to be one of the hottest makeup looks on the beauty scene. Whether you’re going out and want to appear boho-chic or are heading to class and want to look a little more put-together, brown mascara is a necessity for a natural makeup look.
Sold on brown mascara and ready to add a tube to your makeup collection? Here are some of our best brown mascaras:
