How to Pair Colored Mascara With Your Eyeliner for a Monochromatic LookJuly 19, 2023
Summer is often considered an ideal time to take a more natural approach to makeup. But as much as we love a good no-makeup makeup look, we also firmly believe that the warmer months are a great time to play with bold, saturated colors. Compared to the darker shades and muted neutrals that tend to define fall and winter beauty trends, summer beauty is all about fresh, fun and bright vibes.
That’s why we’re not surprised that colored mascara is having a major moment this season. Vivid blues and playful purples instantly brighten your eyes and transform your look. And pairing your colored mascara with a matching colored eyeliner makes for a cool, editorial beauty look that’s as easy to execute as your regular everyday eye makeup routine. Like most people, if you usually stick to black and brown shades for your lashes and liner, you may find the idea of color intimidating. Not to worry: We’re here to share a foolproof, chic way to rock the monochromatic eye makeup trend. Keep scrolling for three stunning colored mascara and eyeliner pairings, so you can try the trend for yourself.
L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Lift Washable Mascara in Stellar Blue and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Mechanical Gel Eyeliner in Blue Jersey
New to colored mascara? Blue is a great place to start. Think of it as an avant-garde alternative to your basic black mascara — it’s an unexpected color, but it’s still dark enough to offer the same striking, eye-framing effect as black. The Stellar Blue shade of the Telescopic Lift Mascara is an electric cobalt that packs a seriously pigmented punch. Pair it with a line of the Infallible Grip Mechanical Gel Eyeliner in Blue Jersey on your upper lash lines for blue times two.
Pretty in Purple
L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Lift Washable Mascara in Galactic Purple and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Up to 24H Pencil Eyeliner in Purple
Try a vivid violet eye makeup look for your next night out and be prepared to turn heads. The Telescopic Lift Washable Mascara in Galactic Purple delivers bold color payoff and visible lengthening. We also love the double-hook bristle application brush, which guarantees that each and every lash is evenly coated with formula. For eyeliner, try the purple shade of this waterproof eyeliner pencil from L’Oréal Paris. FYI: Purple is a particularly flattering color if you have green eyes.
Lancôme Le 8 Hypnôse Serum-Infused Mascara in Noir Malachite and Lancôme Idôle Liner in Emerald Green
Your followers will be green with envy when you post a selfie sporting this emerald mascara and eyeliner combo. The Le 8 Hypnôse Serum-Infused Mascara in Noir Malachite is a deep green shade specially formulated to complement and enhance dark eyes (though we are fully in favor of giving this gorgeous mascara a go regardless of your eye color). Amp up the emerald by wearing it with the green shade of the Idôle Liner. This liquid liner is one of our go-tos for creating sharp wings and dramatic cat eyes.
