For those who have yet to embrace the whimsy that is colored mascara, now is the time. It’s an easy way to switch up your eye look, requires no new skills (unlike those tricky cut creases), and is often available in your favorite mascara formula. When it comes to wearing the trend, the options are endless — you can match your mascara to your eye color, wear it on its own or layer it on top of black mascara for a subtle, dimensional look. And like all trends, we recommend starting off with the most affordable options, below, so you can play without risking your next rent payment.
For a bold washable formula, opt for this cult-favorite mascara in a bright color. The royal blue shade especially makes brown eyes pop.
While many colored mascaras tend to live in the blue and purple families, this one comes in a ton of shades, including this punchy red. The formula is great, too, offering volume, lift and length.
If you’re apprehensive about taking the colored mascara jump, opt for this safe, neutral brown shade. It’s a rich chocolate shade that looks subtle, natural and extremely warm.
