FOTD Totally Teal

Hi lovlies! This is just a quick post today, it's just a FOTD. This is actually my new favorite look. I love the colour teal however when it comes to eyeshadow it's not really a colour that I would chose to wear, however I've been inspired lately to create more colourful looks this is what I came up with and I actually LOVE IT! :) 

Totally Teal

 Products used on this look were:


Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the eye and up to the brow bone.
Mac Blanc Type eyeshadow. I used this as a wash all over the lid including the tear duct area.
Mac Gulf Stream and Shimmermoss eyeshadows were my base colours.
I used Shimmermoss on the inner two thirds of the eye and Gulf Stream on the outer third. 
To darken the crease I used Naked from the Naked Palette, I took this quite high up on the brow bone. Then I went back into the crease with Mystery from Mac to darken up the outer "V". You don't want to use a black or anything to dark because it can overpower the teal look we are going for. 
I used Phloof by Mac as a highlight under the brow bone, Phloof is a super frosty shimmery colour but this is okay with this look as the rest of the colours are quite matte. I chose not to take this shimmery colour into the tearduct as Blanc Type had already added some light to that area.
On my waterline I used Stilla Kajal Eyeliner in the shade Topaz. I love this eyeliner as I find its not as stark as white when used on the waterline and it really opens up the eye and makes the eye appear brighter. 
Underneath this I ran some of  Mystery along under the lash line and underneath that again I ran some of the Shimmermoss colour from Mac. 
For the liner I used Blacktrack Fluidline from Mac. 
The lashes are from Primark.

Lipstick I used was Thalia from NYX.

To get this look you don't have to use these exact colours from Mac. I just chose to use Mac because over the years I have built up a big collection. So don't worry if you don't have these colours. All you need is;
A matte colour that is close to your skin tone.
A shimmery teal colour. If you can't quite decide if it's blue or green then chances are it's probably teal!! :)
A vivid frosty mid toned green/teal, you want it to be a similar colour to your first colour but darker.
A matte reddish brown colour for the crease
A dark brown to darken the crease. 
A frosty shimmery champagne highlight colour. 

Because the eyes in this look are so colourful you want to team it up with a neutral lipstick such as the lipstick I used in this look.

I hope you enjoyed this look, I had fun creating it and I'm looking forward to creating some more colourful looks!

Lots of love, 
Emma

  1. Your eyebrows look perfect! Mine are so messed up from over-plucking 17 years ago. They aren't really growing back as much as I would like so I have to draw them on. Maybe I can try and shape what I have. I really like the shape of yours though. I may use them as a guide!
