The thought of wearing colorful mascara in the office seems tacky and unprofessional but I swear it can look chic if you do it right. Here’s how to wear colored mascara at your 9 to 5 gig:
First, start with your basic black mascara. By layering colored mascara on top of your go-to, it helps mute the color for a less intense look.
Next, pick your poison. Blue mascara looks flattering on every eye color, plus it makes the white of your eyes look whiter. If you have green or blue eyes, purple is also another colored hue worth trying. Stick to two or three coats for your top lashes… and if you’re feeling really daring, you can wear it on your lower lashes too.
Personally, I have a new obsession with Benefit They’re Real! Mascara in Beyond Blue. I took They’re Real for a test drive this past weekend and it really gave my eye makeup that extra pop. I’ve always been a fan of Benefit mascaras but They’re Real is my go-to for smudge-proof and long-wear (although it can be difficult to remove at night, just make sure you have a trusty makeup remover in reach).
Now, don’t overdo it with the rest of your eye makeup. I like to wear a champagne shadow or go completely bare (it makes the rest of my beauty routine so simple). Keep the focus on your eyes and avoid bright blush, contouring and bold lipstick.

Its the first time am able to find a perfect way for applying coloured mascara.
Else, it has always been a problem for me.
Thank you for sharing this post. 🙂
Love your site and blogs and wanted to see if you would be receptive to testing some of our facial and body buffs? If you like them we can discuss giveaways or sponsored posts. Want to do everything possible to amplify the ViaBuff brand.
Our facial and body buffs are covered by a US patent and they are dermatologist tested.
What makes us unique from all the other low priced products out on the market is we use open cell polyurethane foam which is naturally antifungal, antibacterial and allergen free. They are machine washable and very durable. I have estheticians that have washed theirs over 20 times in the past year. We provide 5 colors and intensities of foam so you can match the right color to the users skin type. Purple and blue are gentle and seem to work well on acne and psoriasis, green is mild for eczema, pink is moderate for keratosis pilaris, waxing and ingrown hairs and white is clinical for the real rough dry skin. There is a 19” arched handle available for users with lack of mobility to exfoliate the hard to get areas of the body.
Please check out our site for additional info and if you have a moment please read some of our skin care blogs.
Look forward to your response and the opportunity to ship some of our buffs to you.
