Eccentric, bold-colored mascara isn’t entirely new. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue is a longtime fave of beauty lovers for the way it flatters every eye color and brightens the whites of the eyes. No matter what color mascara you want to wear this season, makeup artists recommend layering your mascara if you’re looking to make the colored mascara stand out on your lashes. By layering, we don’t mean just layering more color onto your lashes. Instead, we mean you should apply your traditional black mascara as normal and then layer with colored mascara until you’re satisfied with the amount of pigment.
“A black mascara under a colored mascara makes the color mascara pop a bit more. It gives the optical illusion that the color is brighter because it's on a darker base,” explains Maybelline New York makeup artist Gabriel Almodovar.
