How to Find the Best Mascara for Your Complexion

Author: Jennifer Bailey

For many individuals, choosing mascara used to be a relatively straightforward process. However, recent color and texture additions have made choosing mascara much more exciting. This is because this year's hottest makeup trend is similar to the style of the 90s, but with a twist, that makes it great for 2009. Colored mascara is back and it is bigger and better than ever. Gone are the thick, gloppy bright blue, green and violet mascaras that looked and felt more like wearing a costume for your eyes. This new style of brown and black mascara looks more natural and seems to match the complexion of one's skin much better than previous makeup solutions.

Whenever there is an embarrassment of riches, there are choices to be made. Once upon a time, picking the right color mascara for your skin tone was easy. If you were a dark-skinned brown-haired woman with dark, lush lashes, you were able to wear black mascara. Hardly fair, when girls like that barely need mascara at all, but that was the traditional wisdom. Anyone else, the beauty experts told us, risked looking a€œfakea€ and a€œharsha€ wearing midnight black mascara. For the rest of us, they recommended wearing brown mascara for a more a€œnaturala€ look.

Now, with many new choices of mascara available which include colors like Dark Cherry, Mahogany, Electric Blue and Purple Haze, natural is out the window. The trick to finding the best mascara for your complexion these days is to consider both your skin tone and your eye color, and pick mascara that complements both. Do not forget to take the time of day and social function into account as well. Some of these new colored mascaras are subtle enough to be worn to work while others should most definitely be reserved for stepping out at the club. Here are some tips on choosing the best mascara shades and types for your complexion.

Basic Black and Brown

If you have a medium to dark complexion and dark hair, choose pure black mascara. Depending on the brand you choose, you can also pick black mascara that is available in Noire, a pure sable black.

If you have a medium to dark complexion and light hair, try brown-black instead of pure black shades. The added touch of brown keeps the black from looking too harsh for your complexion.

If your complexion is medium to fair, choose brown or brown-black mascara. The lighter your complexion, the more you should avoid pure black mascara. If you are one of those folks with black or very dark brown hair and fair skin, though, you may be able to get by with thick, ebony black lashes. Keep it a bit lighter for daytime wear and go dramatic at night.

If your complexion is very fair and you have light hair, you might want to stick with one of the new transparent mascaras that add thickness and make your lashes fuller without adding color at all. A great choice is clear mascara, which adds thickness and gloss without coloring at all.

Dare to be Dramatic

Blue-eyed girls can play it a little safer with turquoise and indigo shades. Turquoise can brighten deep blue eyes and deepen paler eyes. Indigo and purple haze gives your blue eyes a dangerous depth.

You do not have to make your brown eyes blue, but those blue shades can really bring those brown eyes out of hiding. Choose burgundy colored mascara to deepen brown or amber eyes, and pick purple to give your brown eyes a tinge of unexpected green.

Green and hazel eyes can wear any shade and look spectacular, but burgundy and purple are surprisingly effective, especially if you are light-skinned and your hair tends toward auburn or red.

Soft and Subtle

If you are looking for something a bit more subtle but still want to add a bit of color to your lashes, several dual coat mascaras give you a base coat in black or brown and then let you add a slick of shimmery color that is barely visible. Each type of mascara may come with a base coat in brown or black, and a highlighting top coat that adds a shimmer of iridescence in silver, gold, copper, mahogany or blue. Which should you choose? Mahogany, copper and gold add warmth to a sallow complexion, while silver and blue can look great with a ruddy complexion.

The real trick to choosing the right mascara color for your complexion is experimentation. Remember that warm colors look best on sallow complexions and cool colors are best for ruddy complexions. There are many types of cosmetics to consider before you find the best choice for your complexion, but these are several tips to consider which can help make the process easier. Depending on your hair color and skin complexion, the style of makeup that you choose can really make a difference.

      I like it,it sounds like the people I’d like to have in my story:)really like the white hair but you should have Forest’s enemy be the greatest assassin ever,until they meet,and he/she is almost beaten by Forest,being almost the exact same except they kill for opposite reasons.Enemy becomes obsessed with the thought of someone being better than them and won’t stop until either they or Forest are dead….?

    Is it possible for a black woman to give birth to a blonde child?
    A month ago my best friend who is light skinned black gave birth to her third child, a girl who has blond hair and light coloured eyes. The child like her older brother and sister are mixed race. They all look white and don’t have any outward black features. The baby girl is the only one with blond hair in the immediate family. I know this is rare for a black woman to give birth to a blond child but how is this possible?
    The father of the child is white and has brown hair, but his mother is a naturally blond, and his other four older brothers who are dark haired have blonde haired kids and are married to blonde hair women. My friend is full black, black parents, grandparents and looks black.

    • atta says:

      Of course it’s possible. if your friend is of mixed race, her child can come out looking like any of or a mix of those races – that’s basic biology. It’s far more common to be darker because darker genes are dominant, but it’s perfectly normal for a recessive gene, like blue eyes or blonde hair, to come out.

    why do black men go for white women when they get high up on the corprate latter or become a celebrity?
    why, don’t say that this is racist because it’s noticable when some black men establish themselves they run to white women as if they are the best. i hate this. you all notice this as well, but someone on here is gonna say, people can date who they want no matter what color! and they are correct! but! before some of these men were established or have”made big money” they were with black women SOME! but it’s like when they make it they say let me go and get a white woman or a woman with pretty hair. these are some of the reason i’ve HEARD!1.we can have pretty babies 2.they do anything you want them to women are loud and fat 4.i want my baby with good hair and light skin, these are only some. and as for #3, i can’t help the fact that we black women have been strong women since we were created, i can’t help the fact that some of our men do us wrong, i say when i look at my father i know i want-a strong,intelligent,handsome,suave and debonaire black man!

      The reasons will be different for each guy who does this.

      However, stastically, your average white woman is more likely
      to have money than your average black woman – not always
      true, but true most of the time.

      As black men become more famous, they tend to travel in
      richer and richer circles and the black ladies become less
      common and the white ones become more so.

      That is, if they want to be with someone who isn’t impressed
      with their money, they’ll need to be with someone who is
      more likely to have been exposed to lots of money and now
      be effected by it. That person is statistically more likely to be

      As more black women succeed, I believe this tendency will
      diminish – but its taken white women a long time to climb this
      ladder – there is no reason to believe black women will have
      any easier a time at it.

      Yes, I believe there are some “trophy” aspects to having
      a young white wife – mostly a product of Hollywood’s
      sex symbols being young and white.

      Tyra and Halle are great exceptions to prove the point -
      Hollywood equates sexy with young and white. Until
      there are more Halles and Tyras, this trophy aspect will
      remain color biased as well.

      So what it comes down to is this: If there were more rich
      non-white women and more non-white super models and
      Hollywood actressed, I think that the phenomenon of powerful
      black men tending to end up with white women would
