Drugstore Find: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Royal Blue

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara Royal Blue

When experimenting with bright colors and new trends, purchase an inexpensive version to test. Blue mascara is a fun and beneficial option when exploring bright colors.

Inadvertently recognized as 80’s makeup, blue mascara has come a long way. This intriguing color and technique has many benefits and uses.

Most people have yellow and red tones in their sclera (whites of the eyes). The color blue counteracts these colors to make the eyes look whiter, brighter and wide-awake. Blue mascara will also enhance any eye color. Primarily, green and blue-colored eyes but it will also bring-out the gold flecks in brown eyes as well.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue is an inexpensive option to test this technique. But, it is also simply a great mascara. I use this on just the bottom lashes for a slight hint of color. It is a beautiful royal blue that makes any eye pop.

Bright Eyes: Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener

Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener

Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener is an eye pencil that instantly brightens and lightens. This creamy liner washes away any redness of the inner eye-rim and produces a “wide-awake” apperance.

This look can be done with any run-of-the-mill white eyeliner, however, Tarte’s unique version is a skintone shade that looks much more natural. This multi-tasking pencil can be used all over the eye area, as an inner-rim brightener, brow highlight, or use to illuminate the inner and outer corner of the eye.

If you are apprehensive to inner-rim application, even the most sensitive eyes will not have a problem with this pencil. All-natural ingredients like Beeswax, Vitamin A & E and Aloe Leaf Extract sooth and benefit the area.

Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener is a much-needed product for those with allergies, sensitive eyes or are just recovering from a late night. This little marvel makes a drastic difference.
