Two-in-one! At first I thought: what a brilliant idea when you don´t know which one to choose, or when you want both but can't afford it: a brown and black mascara in one! Then I realised, the point is to use them at the same time but in different places: black on top and the coloured shade underneath. That is Creative Makeup Director of Estée Lauder Tom Pecheux´s secret backstage technique for a beautiful, wide-eyed look.
The Sumptuous Two-Tone Mascara comes with two colours and two brushes in both brown, blue and plum colours combined with black. The big black brush is for the upper lashes (I loove this brush), while the smaller, coloured brush is for the lower lashes (I looove this brush too). It´s definitely something I am going to try out.
Other ways I have previously been using coloured mascaras is as a final coat at the tip of the lashes, or simply covering the whole lot in a fun bright blue for a statement look. That is my best trick if you´re not a red lipstick person - in only a minute it makes you look like you've put in a great effort! :)
