Brown mascara. I know, it's kind of like the daggy older cousin who still wears Liberty print at Christmas...am I right?
But do you know what? In the day and age of I-have-so-much-on-I-can-hardly-breathe, it just might be the beauty routine simplifier you've been ignoring in the bottom of your beauty drawer.
Brown mascara has so many uses that have long been overlooked:
1. Cover your greys - no lie, I did this in the car on the way to a recent baby shower. Worked a treat!
2. Fill in your brows - instead of spending more dosh on more prods, use the mascara you've got to do the exact same thing as your double-ended, waxy-filler, powder-combo stuff. And use your savings on wine instead - winning!
3. Use it instead of your old faithful black mascara...So obvs this isn't really a new way - in fact, this is the exact purpose the stuff was designed for - but it is a great way to look a little younger around the eyes. I know we can all get a little addicted to thick, black lashes (myself included) but brown mascara really does look more natural, and thus keeps you looking fresh...and young.
So I know that none of this is particularly ground breaking, but I think 2016 will be the year of looking at everything with an open mind and a fresh perspective - perhaps for us all - and for me, that always starts with my makeup.
Stay pretty babes!
