When choosing a mascara set, there are a few different factors to keep in mind. First, consider the products you want included in the mascara set. For instance, you'll want to determine if you want a number of different types or colors of mascara, or if you want a single mascara with different products such as eyeliner and eye shadow. You will also want to consider the types of colors you are looking for. This can vary based on your skin tone and overall coloring, such as if you have dark hair or lighter coloring. If the set is a gift for a teen, you may want to choose a set with fun colors or even glitter mascaras for a more dramatic, younger look.

Purchasing a mascara set can be a great way to get a number of coordinated products at one price, which can often be a way to save some money. Often, mascara sets include products such as eyeliner, eye shadow, or primer for the eyelid, among others. Eye shadows frequently come in coordinated color palettes as well, with darker colors to line the eyes and lighter colors to cover the lid and highlight the browbone. This is an easy way to ensure that the eye shadows look good together when they are all worn at once.

A mascara set might also be available for certain eye colors. For instance, beauty experts state that certain colors of cosmetic products help to bring out certain eye colors; to make blue eyes look brighter, for example, or green eyes look deeper. Mascara sets are often available with products that are coordinated to highlight certain eye colors. An individual simply needs to purchase the set that is designed for her matching eye color, which can be a great way to start building a makeup collection.

Other types of mascara sets might not include different types of products, but may simply include different colors or types of mascara. For instance, it may include a lengthening or volumizing mascara, a waterproof mascara, and a basic everyday version. Another option is to include different colors of mascara, such as navy blue, dark brown, or black. Sets for teens might include different colors, such as bright neon colors or glitter options. This type of mascara set can make a fun gift, particularly for younger teens who are just starting to use makeup. It is important to check with parents ahead of time though to make sure it's okay.
