Our Fav Colourful Mascaras For Any & Every Eye Colour

It's colour pop time!

Colourful mascara isn’t a new makeup product by any means. But it has been given a new lease of life in 2024.

New bright and beautiful mascaras have flooded the market. Pinks and greens and blues may look intimidating in the package, and you might be tempted run back to your trusty black mascara, but you can really elevate your makeup look by making this simple swap.

How to wear colourful mascara

Like all things makeup, it’s just for fun. So you can wear whatever colour in whatever way you want. You can use it to elevate a dramatic eye look. Or you can just wear the mascara and forego eyeshadow so it subtly adds some colour to your look. We recommend that you match your mascara to your eye colour, so you can enhance your already gorgeous natural features!

For blue eyes…

To get your perfect match, we’ll be dipping into colour theory. On the colour wheel, red is directly across from blue. Okay, red mascara is not something that you can come by easily. So you can try a berry mascara or a burgundy mascara. If red is a bit too intense for you, you can ease yourself into it with a brown mascara which is still neutral but definitely not as harsh as a black mascara.

Brown: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – €34 – Chocolate 

For brown eyes…

When it comes to brown eyes, there are plenty of colours for you to choose from as brown is much more neutral. We promise you blue will look great. No, you won’t look like you’re going to a teen disco! Purple is another complementary hue for brown eyes!

Not only will it complement your unique eye colour, it also makes the whites of your eyes much brighter. It’s a win-win! We’re not finished with our brown eyed girls, you can also try out green which will also give that brightening effect.

For green eyes…

Your pretty green eyes deserve to be the centre of attention when it comes to your face. So how do you make them pop? Well with a blue mascara to start! Yes, much like brown eyes this will enhance all the different shades in your eyes.

Just like brown, you can also grab a purple mascara to help the sparkle in your súile! And it’s easy to transition from black to a deep purple so you can move up to a lighter and more dramatic purple…or even lilac!

Purple: Yves Saint Laurent The Curler Mascara – €32.46 – Violet

For hazel eyes…

As hazel eyes are a combination of brown and green it means that any colours that are great for brown or green eyes will be great for hazel eyes. Yes, if you have hazel eyes you’ve really won the jackpot. But if you want to really bring out the green in your eyes, try a green mascara.

It will highlight the flecks of emerald in your súile! Purple or burgundy mascara will also be a big hit so we can see more behind those hazel eyes. These deeper colours will highlight the natural richness and warmth in your eyes. It is also a more subtle colour than green for you to take that step from black mascara.

Burgundy: Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High – €17.99 – Burgundy
