Bright Turquoise Eyes

Friday, July 27, 2012

We saw this look and thought it was the perfect way to pull off a bright turquoise eye for summer. This look works best on darker skin tones because the bright  colors just really pop! Here's how:

1. Prime the eyes with our Eyelid Primer in 'Pearl' for long lasting shadow. 

2. Using an eyeshadow brush, apply our Pigment Eyeshadow in 'Tropical Teal' to the lids. Blend the edges so there are no harsh lines.

3. Using our Cream Eyeliner in 'Black', draw a thin line across the upper lash line and smudge the liner on bottom of the eyes for a smoky effect. 

4. Coat lashes with our 3-in-1 Mascara and apply a pair of Natural False Lashes for some extra drama.

5. Finish off the look with a nude lip- try our Mineral Lipstick in 'Rosy Raisin' and a clear gloss!

Love this look. I have worn a bright turquoise or teal eye look before and I have light skin and it looks great. You just have to be sure to be light handed with the blue color and you'll look great!

Not sure I could rock this look, even with medium skin tone and brown eyes. It looks beautiful on these women though.

I love the idea of bright colors, especially for summer. I am fair-skinned but I think using a light hand & blending with a neutral shadow and I could pull this off.

The email I got about this look says its better for darker skin tones. Here is how to create the look on lighter skin tones: http://makeupmattersbylnc.blog spot.com I used a darker blue eye shadow and the ELF eye transformer. Just click on the post about summer trends.

I had been looking at the pigment eyeshadow in Tropical Teal and couldn't figure out how would I accomplish this look because I am a dark skinned African American.I will definitely try this look.

Love this look, but if you have lighter skin, are older, timid, whatever, a more neutral eye with a turquoise eye liner (which I've been doing this summer) is a good alternative.
