It’s so hard to have all eyes on you when there are so many people around. Fortunately, your eyes got the solution. Just add some magic! Or colored mascara. Remember to add more color, no matter what color it is. Pink lashes, isn’t that funky? Look how cool blue lashes complement the makeup. There are lots of options for you: you can combine two colors of colored mascara and apply it any way you want. Both lash lines are of the same color? Perfect! Did you decide to apply different colors of mascara? Awesome! It’s all about experiments, don’t be afraid to let your eyes pop. A tip for those who seek simple festival makeup: choose two colors, one of them goes all over the eyelid and another one is applied under the lower lash line. You can also opt for glitter eyeshadow and finish your look with colored mascara. Simple, yet totally lovely.
