Colored lashes have been an in the moment, out of the moment beauty trend, but does it really matter what 'trendsetters' what you want, and if you want to get that highly pigmented colored look, go for it! There is an easy way to achieve this, even if you have super dark lashes. Use your favorite mascara, and while it's still wet, quickly apply the highly pigmented mascara color or eye shadow powder to your lashes. Cool, eh? 

Want that lovely long lasting lash look? You'll want to snag a waterproof mascara for that long lasting factor, but unfortunately, we all know long lasting doesn't always mean most voluminous. That's why we think you should also layer with a swipe or two of a volumizing lash forumla, we love Chanel's dimensional mascara in #10 noir. 

Want a wide-eyed, baby doll lash look? You'll need a mascara with a thin wand...and the other that is meant for curling, with a large, curved brush. With the thin wand, you'll want to take the time to seperate each and every lash, you'll also want to use a eye lash curler on your top lashes for the most wide eyed look you're able to achieve.
