Let us preface this by saying we’re massive fans of the no-makeup makeup look. Mascara is the perfect tool to enhance your lashes, making them look fuller and longer. But to achieve those effortless long lashes without looking too clumpy, dark, or cakey, we opt for brown mascara.
Before switching to brown, we were convinced that brown mascara was for fair-haired people and wouldn’t suit naturally black, short, and crisscrossed lashes. And then we tried the Max Factor 2000 Calorie in brown. It completely changed the way our eyes looked – flawlessly defining our lashes. The formula helps elongate without clumps, giving you a full glam yet subtle look.
Among its many benefits, brown mascara is the ideal way to enhance your eye color. If you have blue eyes and fair skin, it’s not a bad idea to rock some brown mascara with your everyday look. It gives you an enhanced look rather than a harsh black against your fair tone.
The same thing goes for brown eyes! Despite what you may think about using brown mascara if you have a darker skin tone, it can subtly enhance your rich chocolatey eyes with just a few swipes. Hello, brighter eyes in an instant!
Even if you’re going for the full glam evening makeup look, brown mascara is still a perfect option. It’s an easy way to create bold bottom lashes that won’t overpower the rest of your eye makeup look.
