1. Color selection
First and foremost, color selection is an important point in choosing color mascara.
Recommended color: Terra cotta
Terra cotta is a mix of orange and brown. This color is recommended for those who want to look healthy and innocent without looking bad. This color is especially recommended for people with yellow-based skin, as it blends well with the skin.
Recommended color (2) Burgundy
Among purples, burgundy, a deep wine color, is especially recommended for mature women. It gives a clear eye look and a gorgeous impression. At first glance, the color looks like it could be flashy, but when applied, it is surprisingly calm and brings out the charm of an adult.
Recommended color (3) Brown and navy
Brown and navy give a gentle impression to the eyes without looking as harsh as black. These colors are especially recommended for first-time users of colored mascara, and those who have only ever used black can also use them without feeling uncomfortable. The colors are not very different from the usual, but they are dependable colors that will naturally change your impression, making you look somehow more sophisticated than usual.
2. Comb shape
The shape of the brush varies from product to product. Try to find a shape that is easy to use and lifts lashes from the root. Many adult women are too busy to spend long hours every day on makeup. The shape of the brush may be a surprisingly blind spot, but if the shape of the brush is difficult for you to apply, it will take longer to apply. Also, if you make a mistake in applying mascara, you will lose a lot of time, so choose a brush with a shape that is comfortable in your hand and easy to use. Brushes can be broadly classified into the following three types of shapes.
(1) Straight type
Straight type brushes are easy to apply to the crease of the eyes while adjusting the angle. If you choose a thinner brush, it will be easier to apply to the lower lashes where the eye shape is not so curved.
2) Curved type
The curve type follows the shape of the eye, so it is easy to apply from the inner corner of the eye to the outer corner of the eye in one stroke. It can be applied neatly to the entire area without adjusting the strength or angle of the hand.
3) Comb type
The comb type is shaped like a comb, which easily transmits the power of the hand to the lashes and creates beautifully separated lashes while lifting them up.
Even if you usually choose mascara without paying much attention to the shape of the brush, it will be easier and shorter to apply if you use it as a reference when choosing mascara. Please pay attention to the shape of the brush.
3. Curl retention
The third point to keep in mind when selecting color mascara for adult women is curl retention. Adult women's eyelashes may lose their firmness and elasticity. It is important to choose a color mascara that will cover this and keep the lashes looking up. Also, the eyelashes of hardworking adult women are sometimes exposed to harsh conditions such as sweat, tears, rubbing, and recently, steam from masks. Choose a mascara that will keep your lashes curled and looking beautiful even in such conditions. Check the product and see if it has curl-holding power.
How to incorporate colored mascara into eye makeup
Once you have chosen a colored mascara, know how to apply it to your eye makeup. Here are some easy ways for beginners to use colored mascara.
Choose a color that is similar to the color of the other makeup points that go with the colored mascara.
If the color mascara is matched with eye shadow or lip makeup in a different color system, they will look different from each other. The rule of thumb is to match the color of the colored mascara with the color of the other makeup points when using colored mascara as the main color. For eyeshadow, choose a color that does not make a statement, such as beige, to make the colored mascara stand out. For example, among the colored mascaras recommended earlier, terracotta and burgundy can be used for a cozy look by choosing the same color for the eyeshadow. For brown or navy colored mascara, beige eye shadow is recommended for a subtle yet sophisticated image that is easy for beginners to adopt.
Try applying colored mascara in different places.
Whether you apply colored mascara to the entire lash line or just a portion of it can make a big difference in the impression. If the color stands out, we recommend applying it to the outer corners of the eyes as a point of interest without making it too flashy. If you want to enhance the color, apply black mascara to the entire lash line and then apply colored mascara to bring out the color clearly. Colors such as brown and navy can be applied to the entire lashes as you would normally apply black mascara, but with a gentle nuance. You can also apply it only to the upper lashes or only to the lower lashes. The impression will be different for each, so please experiment with different looks.
Lash Care for Enjoying Color Mascara
We have already mentioned some tips for choosing colored mascara, but you can enjoy colored mascara even more if you take care of your eyelashes on a daily basis. Adopting the habit of taking care of your eyelashes as you take care of your hair will allow you to wear makeup with confidence in your own eyelashes. The latest trend is natural eye makeup that makes the most of your own eyelashes without adding too much volume. Use eyelash serums to enjoy more makeup with youthful, firm, and pin-prickly lashes as the main feature.
Just by adding a little color to your lashes in this way, you can be thrilled with a new you that is unique without being too assertive. Even if you have tended to shy away from colored mascara in the past, please take a look at this method and give it a try.
