Smokey teal look

Well here you go guys, first youtube tutorial and here's what I used and how to makeup your own...
again I chose to do this one because is very affordable and easy to do, if you have some gel eyeliner a couple brushes and some pigment, you're set(if you don't have the pigment, not to worry, just use any eyeshadow of your liking).

okay so the tutorial is very explanatory, but here’s the products I used and as well as why I did the things I did in the tutorial.


Real Techniques ~ Blending Brush

MAC brush(sadly discontinued).

Yaby Eyeshadow~ Milk Chocolate

Loreal ~ Infallible eyeshadow in Endless pearl(Discontinued) you can use any pearlescent off white color though.

MAC ~ 239 Brush

Coastal Scents ~ pigment in summit turquoise
ELF Blush ~ Blushing Rose

Kevyn Aucoin ~ eyelash Curler.
Coastal Scents Quad.

Pink pencil brush by CrownBrush.

WayneGoss No. 2 brush

Rimmel Stay Matte setting powder.

ELF ~ Duo Bronzer/Blush

Stippling Brush ~ CrownBrush

Maybelline ~ Mega Plush Mascara.

Revlon ~ Lip Butter in 090 Sweet tart.

Okay so here’s what you need to know when doing a smokey eye… Always have at least one brush to blend(clean Brush).

Blend, the worst thing to do when doing a smokey eye, is to have harsh lines.

take your time, sometimes we want to rush out of the door, but if you don’t have the time, don’t opt for something like a smokey eye, go for a more simple thing like a neutral or just one color all over the eyelid.

I find if I’m using a gel eyeliner, I normally don’t need a primer, the primer makes it cling to the skin and is very hard to blend, if you apply it without the primer it blends easier and because is a gel formula, it doesn’t really crease, though remember to apply an eyeshadow on top of the gel eyeliner to prevent it.

choosing a warm color when there’s black in the look will soften it, so adapt this look however you’d like and let me know if you try it.
