We’ve talked about the colored mascara trends before and how amazing they can look on redheads. Similar to the blue mascara trend, a popular look for redheads is purple mascara. It helps your eyes pop (especially if they are green) and compliments your red hair. 

Purple mascara looks great with a more neutral nude makeup look, a monochromatic purple look, or even a dark smokey eye. Try using purple mascara on your top or bottom lashes and black on the opposite for a simple pop of color, or use it on both for a more bold look.
