When it comes to bold looks, catchy outfits, and bright colors, fashion and makeup industries are creating a world of no boundaries. We’re taking more chances with color and finding various ways to express our style and personality through beauty. So it’s not much of a shocker that 1980s trends are making a serious comeback. Just like almost everything else from the decade (vibrant colors, wild patterns, voluminous hair), bright mascara is officially back and feels oh-so-modern! And we all know that if there’s one makeup product we can’t live without, it’s mascara.

Thanks to colored mascara you can add a bold pop of color or a subtle dimension to Instagram-worthy eye looks, neutral office wear, or you can wear it alone on no-makeup makeup days. It’s also something that isn’t hard to do, as most people feel confident using mascara. And this trend suits everyone, all ages and skin tones. Whether you choose royal blue, deep emerald, or shocking pink, when worn well, colorful mascara can enhance your eyes, making them appear brighter and more awake. Whatever you do, just keep the rest of your makeup minimal so that your beauty look doesn’t become too busy.

The best thing about colored mascara is that creates an impactful makeup look without loading the eyes up with shadows and liners. It’s a minimal effort, maximum impact product that keeps the eyes looking clean and fresh. Below, we introduce the best-colored mascara ideas that grabbed us right by the faces and made us look.
