It’s that time of year when it seems winter will never end, and everything is a shade of grey. Sure, I love dressing in head-to-black (mourning the absence of the sun and feeling in my toes), too, but it can be nice to add a bit of color to your life, even in a small way, at least. When you can’t bear to go bright in your wardrobe, just add a flick of colored mascara to your lashes. There are many ways to do it: Apply a few coats of the bright hue alone, layer it over black for a hint of color, add it to the tops only so there is a flash of the shade when you blink, or even accent the tips of your lashes. Whether you go all in or ease your way into bold fringe, here are a few great eye-catching options.
