Let’s face it, a slick and a flick of coloured eye liner (see my latest favourites here and here) just wouldn’t be complete without lashings of mascara. Whereas your average black option would be a safe call, why not mix your eye-look up and combine that purple liner with a coating of brown mascara or wow your friends with dazzling colbalt blue lashes to frame a emerald green flick? I love the whole coloured liner and mascara trend going on at the moment and Benefit Cosmetics have just given us reason to reinvent that 70s feel which two new additions to their best-selling mascara.
The ever-popular They’re Real! mascara from Benefit (£19.50) has been given a colourful makeover and now there are two new shades to delight your eyes – They’re Real! in ‘Beyond Blue’ and ‘Beyond Brown’. If you were a fan of the original mascara from Benefit but fancy injecting a little colour into your makeup then these would be a fab choice. If you haven’t tried this mascara before then you are in for a treat. I really liked the original version and found that it lived up to all its promises; it lengthened, curled, added volume, lifted and seperated my lashes without any smudging or drying out. And if you are a little fearful of going all-blue then you could subtly coat the ends of your lashes after you’ve applied your regular mascara or just opt for the bottom lashings for fun finish!
What do you think? Do you dare to go bright and blue?
