How to Choose the Right Mascara for Your Eye Color and Skin Tone

The right mascara can accentuate your eyes and make them sparkle. Many women wear traditional black mascara, but there are several other options. The color you choose will depend on your eye color and skin tone. Here are some tips to help you choose the right mascara.

Black Mascara

Black mascara looks good on anyone, regardless of skin tone. If you can’t decide on a color, black mascara is always a good choice. Wear a subtle black mascara to define your lashes during the day. Curl your lashes first to make them longer. In the evening, use a thick brush to add volume to your lashes. If you have dark skin and lashes, use the blackest black.

Brown Mascara

If you have fair skin and would like a more natural look, wear a rich brown mascara. This can give color to invisible lashes if you have light hair. Wear brown mascara at night if you have blue or green eyes. Choose eye shadow and eyeliner colors that are not darker than your mascara. If you have an olive or medium skin tone, wear a blackened brown mascara.

Blue Mascara

If you have brown, gray, or light green eyes, you can make a statement with blue mascara. Blue will work especially well if you have fair skin. If you have darker skin, put on a base coat of black mascara or primer, let it dry, and then put on a few coats of blue mascara. Line your top lid with black liquid liner or use a blue eye pencil. Deep blue mascara can accentuate gray, light brown, or green eyes in a subtle way. You can also use navy blue mascara to brighten the whites of your eyes. Deep and navy blue work well with fair skin.

Purple Mascara

Purple mascara goes well with blue, green, or hazel eyes. If your skin has warm undertones, choose a purple mascara with red undertones, such as plum. If you have cool medium-toned or darker skin, you can use a bluer purple shade, such as violet.

Green Mascara

Green mascara looks good with brown or hazel eyes and a variety of skin tones. Wear it with a neutral eye shadow so your lashes stand out. You can also put on some clear or black mascara and then put on green mascara from the mid-shafts to the tips.
