More often than not I find myself choosing brown mascaras over black when I’m working. I don’t intentionally eschew black but find the varying shades of browns a little more forgiving and versatile and are perfect for adding a little definition to the lashes of fairer men too.
Brown needn’t be boring, so if you’re looking for lashes that are a little softer but still just as beautiful, here are my top five picks for brown organic mascara…
The Natural One…
Dr Hauschka – Natural Mascara in Brown
I am a big fan of this mascara (the blue version is a permanent fixture in my own make-up bag), it evenly coats lashes in a lovely chocolatey brown hue. Rose scented, this non-waterproof mascara nourishes and conditions the lashes with its mix of oils and natural waxes.
The Eye-catching one…
Ilia Beauty – Natural Mascara in Macao
Macao is a beautiful soft copper that adds a real glow to the eyes – Wear it alone or as a finishing touch to a darker mascara for real impact. Thickening, lengthening and conditioning this mascara from Ilia Beauty does it all whilst you shine.

The Lengthening one…

The ultimate is organic lengthening mascara, this baby does give you real cow-like lashes. After five years in production The Organic Pharmacy came up with this, a 60% organic mascara, packed full of conditioning ingredients such as Aloe, Beeswax and Vitamins A,C and E.
The Full & Flattering one…

Ok, well maybe top six.
And The One That Nearly Got Away…
Ilia Beauty – Natural Mascara in Shadow of a Doubt
I couldn’t let this mascara go unmentioned and yes, it is another from Ilia but it is lovely and very, very useful. Perfect for those who are very fair and for men for adding just a little definition, this Ash Brown definitely leaves us without a shadow of a doubt!
