SHOULD I WEAR BLACK OR BROWN MASCARA….?

Black or brown mascara, is one actually better than the other? Although black mascara has always been the confidant of many beauty enthusiasts, brown mascara is here and ready to take its place on the podium. At Maybelline, we love both colors and think it’s just a question of the look you’re going for. So why not read on and decide for yourself?

BLACK OR BROWN MASCARA FOR BROWN EYES

If you’re fluttering beautiful golden-brown eyes, then a black mascara is most likely your go-to partner in crime. But have you ever considered that a deep brown mascara could be a beautiful alternative to complement the natural hues in your eyes and add some depth. Why not try it out and see? If a glam look in on the cards, then an audacious black is, of course, the way to go. Shop Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Washable Mascara in Blackest Black and create a dramatic look that is bound to catch a few eyes.

BLACK OR BROWN MASCARA FOR BLUE EYES

Whether heading into the office or a day at college, a black mascara works wonders on those with lighter hair and fairer complexions, framing and adding a bit of definition to invisible lashes. Top tip: use an eyelash curler before you apply your mascara to add even more length! A brown mascara, on the other hand, is a cult-favorite for those who love to wear makeup but pretend they don’t. Greatest Lash Washable Mascara in Bold Brown is perfect at creating a softer look and can even imitate the effects of a clear mascara.

PRO TIP

Still can’t decide between black or brown mascara? Then wear both! Why not try applying a light layer of black mascara to the top lashes and a brown mascara to the bottom? The soft effect will create a natural look while the touch of black will give you the definition you're looking for!
