For those who love to give their lashes some extra va-va-voom, a brown mascara is a great alternative to traditional black formulas. Offering customisable intensity for daytime to nighttime wear, brown pigment compliments many eye colours, enhancing your natural beauty. Looking for a new mascara to add to your regime? We've curated a list of the best brown mascara to watch this season and beyond.

The best brown mascaras

L'Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes Balm Brown Volumising Mascara

Promoting a natural, yet lengthened finish, this formula is enriched with a conditioning balm to help care for the lashes from root to tip. Boasting a 99% natural ingredient formula, this gentle mascara offers nourishment and buildable intensity, using rich mineral brown pigments to enhance your natural lash colour.

Clinique High Impact Waterproof Mascara 

For lash definition without the intensity of jet-black pigment, this black/brown combination from Clinique is ideal. Providing instant volume and length in a smudge-proof formula, this mascara resists clumping for a fanned-out finish. What's more? Its waterproof finish means it lasts as long as you do!

L’Oréal Paris Lash Paradise Moonlight Noir Mascara 

This dramatic dark brown mascara is ideal for your evening glam. Suitable for sensitive eyes, this formula is enriched with castor oil, cornflower water and rose oil, working to nourish lashes with every stroke. Great for natural-looking definition, the soft brush hugs each lash to coat evenly from root to tip.

L'Oréal Paris Volume Million Lashes 

For a fluttery, fanned-out finish, this brown mascara from L'Oréal is a top choice. Using a Millionizer brush with long and short bristles to catch every lash, the flexible head makes coating each lash effortless. Topped off with an excess wiper to remove additional product, this wand offers just the right amount of a mascara for a lengthened, clump-free look.

Eyeko Limitless Lengthening Mascara 

Lengthen lashes weightlessly with this formula from Eyeko, infused with 80% natural ingredients. Ideal for those with sensitive eyes, this mascara is infused with oat-derived fibres for length & acai oil for nourishment.

Yves Saint Laurent Lash Clash Mascara

For volume seekers, this YSL mascara is an essential. Available in a sultry brown shade, this formula glides across each lash using the conical brush to provide lift and curl. Boasting 24-hour wear, this long-lasting formula resists flaking, peeling or smudging so you can maintain your look all night long.

Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara 

Powered by botanical infusions and enriched with thickening fibres, this volumising mascara gives lashes instant va-va-voom. Perking up lashes with a shot of biotin and caffeine, this formula provides dramatic lift and curl, whilst strengthening the lashes against breakage.

A warmer alternative to the iconic Black Magic mascara, this professional quality mascara offers the same dramatic volume and curl, now in a richer hue. Enriched with nourishing shea butter and keratin, lashes are left soft, conditioned and fluttery.

As someone with an affinity for all things beauty, discovering fantastic new products is my not-so-secret obsession. Over the years I've tried and tested a mountains worth of creams, serums and cleansers, finding some of my favourite 'holy-grail' products along the way. However, I'm always on the lookout for more ways to nourish my hair, perfect my dewy base, or enhance my skincare routine. Working as a beauty blogger for over 3 years, I've been lucky enough to collaborate personally with lots of amazing beauty brands including Christian Dior, The Body Shop and Dermalogica. I've used the Dermalogica special cleansing gel religiously since I first got it and their products are some of my ultimate skincare faves. When it comes to cosmetics, NARS Sheer Glow foundation is definitely my go-to - I live for a light, glowy base!
