Color Your Lashes Baby Blue

5 May

Colored mascara is back, especially blue mascara, inspired by Stella McCartney’s recent runway show in Paris for her fall/winter 2012 collection.

Blue mascara is fun and unexpected, and makes sense considering the bright colors for fashions you’ll probably be wearing over the next few months. Blue mascara also works well with any eye color.

You can interpret this trend any way you like, depending on the type of mascara you prefer.

Volumizing with a Twist

Buxom Lash in Blue Noir has a vitamin-enriched formula that darkens and thickens from root to tip. You’ll get the right touch of blue (in a blue black shade) with this mascara without your lashes being overdone. Well-known for its hourglass-shaped brush, the design ensures each lash is coated evenly.

Cult-followed Mascara

Diorshow Mascara
in Royal Blue is Dior’s original, must-have mascara used by makeup artists. The vibrant blue color shows up on well on black lashes. The trick to using this mascara is to wiggle the large brush at the base of your lashes and sweep it upward in long strokes.

Tried and Tested

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue has been the go to blue mascara for decades. You may need a few coats of this mascara to get a navy blue effect, but it’s perfect for daytime when you want your eyes to get noticed. You can also wear this mascara over a black mascara, if you want more volume.
