So, i had my colours done, which was fun. I'm supposed to wear navy mascara , but tbh, i don't often wear mascara, but have my fair lashes tinted dark brown. Would blue/black be better, or too black, which is a big no for me?
I read somewhere many, many years ago that navy mascara was the best one to use to make your eyes stand out and look brighter & clearer, I tried it and at the time thought it worked well.
But you need a proper navy, quite dark with not too much blue in it. The one I got at the time was max factor 2000 calorie (I think)....was so long ago so could be wrong. Don't wear it now as am addicted to the plum mascara from benefit as that suits green eyes well. But I might see if I can find it again.
Hmm, is there no navy option for tinting? TBH neither blue-black or brown are going to have the look of navy, iykwim. If you'd been a spring I would have said brown. If you happen to be a Brown Summer you could probably do brown, otherwise it's either navy mascara or brown eyelash tinting and accepting it won't give you that lovely look that navy mascara does on summers. Campaign for navy tint!
I'm a summer and I never wear black mascara - it makes me look like I'm dead! I have a navy mascara from No 7 that I really like - my only gripe is that I would like a waterproof one as I touch my face a lot which often means smudged mascara. I wear brown / black as a daily alternative but I do love my navy mascara too!
