The Best Brown Mascaras for a Natural Lash LookAugust 15, 2022
There was once a time I swore I would never give up inky black mascara in favor of brown. I loved the drama black gave and didn't think I could achieve similar results with brown mascara. Now, however, with the abundance of minimalist makeup looks and lash-enhancing treatments like lash lifts and tints trending, brown mascara has become a go-to in my makeup rotation. It adds length, volume and definition to my lashes while also offering a soft contrast to my daily look of blush, eyebrow gel and lip gloss.

Lancôme Définicils is a cult-favorite mascara for offering length and clean, natural-looking definition. In a dark brown shade, it does just enough to make your lashes pop – think a very subtle set of lash extensions.
This mascara lifts straight lashes like a curler and gives all-day volume and length. Dream Pop is a chocolate-cherry shade that offers a soft, romantic contrast and warmth to all skin tones and hair colors.
A smudge-proof, water-resistant formula is key to have in your mascara rotation. This one offers buildable, clump-free volume in a deep brown shade that will complement, not compete with, your everyday makeup look.
