This is what we used to do when I did makeup and even if today I rarely apply mascara on my lower lashes, when I do, I reach for brown. Why? More subtle, less harsh, flattering on everyone.

Straight From the Runway
Now, Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder, inspires a breakthrough mascara based on his secret backstage technique for big, beautiful eyes.
The genius is in the two contrast colors and two different brushes.
Big BrushComber™ adds bold black volume to upper lashes.
Smaller MicroBrush adds eye-brightening, smudge-free color to lower lashes.
Now it's easy to create the most amazing wide-eyed look-it's runway proven.
If you've never tried this, please do. You will notice that by using brown on your lower lashes, it does open up the eyes.
Sumptuous Two Tone Eye-Opening Mascara, $32.00.
Estée Lauder's Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting mascara is way up there among my favorites, full review, here. I'm quite sure this one will not disappoint. It is more expensive but you do get two mascaras in one.
So now I'm torn! I have found a favorite, Benefit They're Real! but there are several new mascaras I want to try, badly! Which to choose?
