Tired of the same black and brown mascara shades? While trends like blue mascara and burgundy mascara may have crossed your path, there’s something new on the scene that’s been creating quite the buzz: green mascara. Particularly flattering on those with brown and hazel eyes, this is one makeup product we think you should add to your makeup bag ASAP. Wondering how to add colored mascara into your makeup routine? Below, learn a few of our favorite ways to use the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Bold Eye Mascara in Deep Green for a trendsetting eye makeup look.
5 WAYS TO WEAR GREEN MASCARA
Like we said, there’s more than one way to wear a green mascara. Read on for five of our favorite options. Just be sure to apply the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Primer prior to make the green hue truly pop!
OPTION #1: ALL-OVER COLORED LASHES
If you’re ready to fully embrace the green mascara trend, we’d say there’s no better way to do so than with an all-over application. Apply the green formula to your top and bottom lashes just as you would your regular mascara, placing the brush at the base of your lashes and gently sweeping to the tips.
OPTION #2: UPPER LASHES
Let your green stand out by wearing it solely on your upper lashes. After applying a few coats to your top lashes, Brush a black mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Bold Eye Mascara in Black, onto your bottom lashes to complete the look.
OPTION #3: BOTTOM LASHES
On the contrary, you can also let your green mascara shine on your bottom lashes. Yup, bold, bottom lashes are in! Apply a black mascara to your upper fringe, then color your bottom lashes in green.
OPTION #4: CONTOURED LASHES
Think contouring is just for your face? Think again! You can actually contour your lashes with mascara, and it’s quite simple to do. All you need to do is apply your lash primer just to the ends of your lashes. Then, apply your green mascara overtop—just on the ends! Coat your bottom lashes as you normally would with either green or black mascara.
OPTION #5: TWO-TONED LASHES
What’s better than one colored mascara? Two! Consider applying one color to your upper lashes and a different hue to your bottom lashes for a standout, trendsetting fringe. To get in the holiday spirit, pair your green mascara with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Bold Eye Mascara in Deep Burgundy.
HOW TO COMPLETE YOUR EYE MAKEUP LOOK
Now that you know how to wear green mascara, you may be wondering how to complete the rest of your eye makeup when wearing such a bold lash hue. Well, again, you actually have a few options. Below, find three ways to complete your eye makeup look.
OPTION #1: GREEN EYELINER
Let green be the center of your look and complement your green mascara with coordinating eyeliner. Line your lash line with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Forest Green. We love this option for those who choose to wear mascara on only either their upper or lower lashes.
OPTION #2: BRUSHED UP BROWS
There’s no denying that green mascara is a bold choice. To let your colorful fringe be the center of your look, keep your lids bare and instead groom your brows. Brushing them up with a spoolie and giving them a subtle boost with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara in Clear will do the trick!
OPTION #3: SHIMMERING LIDS
If you do want to play up your eye makeup look just a bit, a shimmery eye shadow in a subtle hue is the perfect way to do so. Swipe the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Eyes Shimmer Liquid Eye Shadow Makeup in Diamond Drop, Amber Sparkle, or Crystal Shine onto your lids, then blend the color into your crease.
