Daytime Vs Evening Mascaras

For the longest time I just wore standard black mascara. It wasn't until last year that I thought to wear brown. A friend of mine is fair skinned and she said she wore brown mascara because black can look too harsh against her fair skin. I thought "I'm fair, maybe I should try that!" So I did and I really liked the results.

For the daytime I wear L'Oreal's Voluminous waterproof mascara in Dark Brown. It's not too dark of a color to look like I'm going to the club. The mascara color matches my hair so it keeps the look very natural.

For evening I wear a combo of Maybelline's Colossal Volum Express in Glam Black and MAC's Haute & Naughty Lash in Black. I don't really like the Colossal mascara by itself but MAC's isn't waterproof so I add the Colossal over it to make sure it doesn't sweat off during the evening. Haute & Naughty is the two brushes in one mascara- it's pretty cool!

Do you switch between a daytime and evening mascara? Or just use one mascara all the time?

  1. I don't usually wear mascara at all. I end up just rubbing it all over my face. Perhaps I ought to give the waterproof one a try though

  2. I don't switch, but now I'm tempted to!

  3. I just use one mascara all the time but this "brown" option has me thinking that I might just change my way of thinking:)

  4. i use one mascara for day and night but now you have me thinking i should switch to something more dramatic for night. any suggestions?

  5. I'm very fair and I always wear black mascara too. Maybe I should give brown a try. I would like a lightened up look, especially for summer.

  6. i have pretty olive skin & dark hair so i usually just black with some sort of lash lengthening properties (i like bad gal lashes!)

  7. I actually only use one mascara, but maybe I should try a dark brown!

  8. @Style Eyes- I'd definitely recommend waterproof... I can't deal without it being waterproof!

    @Kristin- hehe let me know if you do!

    @Cat- I really like switching but doesn't mean you have to :)

    @Simplychic- It's so hard to recommend because I feel like everyone has their preferences. I really like Maybelline mascaras. I love Falsies!

    @Shea- If that's what you are looking for, I definitely recommend it!

    @la petite fashionista- Thanks for commenting!

    @StyleMeBAD- haha which one do you use?


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
