5 Beautiful Teal Eyeliners I Love

You’ve probably noticed that I like to wear teal eyeliner–it’s the perfect pop of color on the lower lash line that brightens and still works whether it’s a minimal makeup day or not (or so I believe, at least). Here are the five that are my most-used!

  1. Sephora Good Mood — a green-teal with a pearly sheen
  2. Marc Jacobs Beauty Intro(vert) — a brightened green-teal with sparkle
  3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) — a pop of blue-teal
  4. Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy — a true shimmery teal
  5. Sephora Fairytale — a deepened blue-teal with gold and green shimmer

5 Blushes to Try for Fair Skin Tones

I’m often asked for recommendations for blushes, and I thought I’d put together an updated, three-part series on blushes for fair, medium, and dark skin tones (I’ve done this at least once before). I’d love for you to share your favorites for your skin tone as well 🙂 The more suggestions, the better! (Keep in mind, this is only a jumping off point–five recommendations at various price points, finishes, and undertones, but there are certainly many more that would suit!)

  1. NYX Flamingo — a cool-toned, matte pink
  2. Illamasqua Peaked — a cool-toned, pink-plum
  3. Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane — a muted, rosy brown with a matte finish
  4. Makeup Geek Spellbound — a soft, warm-toned pink with a satin finish
  5. Make Up For Ever #310 — a medium, warm-toned pink

5 of My Favorite Colorful Eyeshadow Palettes

I love colorful eyeshadows, and there have been some interesting palettes that have released over the years! If you’re in the market for something that’s not just neutrals, you may want to check out some of these. Too Faced Pretty Rebel and Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren both deserve honorable mentions; two of my favorites, but they are limited edition. I try to make these lists stand the test of time and avoid limited edition inclusions, but at this moment, both palettes are still available for purchase if they interest you. For now 🙂

  1. Sugarpill Cold Chemistry — a set of four, cool-toned shades
  2. bareMinerals The Elements — beige, orange, green, and blue for a particularly unique color combination
  3. Urban Decay Electric — for bold, bright near-neons
  4. Tarina Tarantino Fantastical — if you love purple, this one’s for you
  5. Sleek Sunset — bright golds, yellows, and coppers

My 10 Favorite High-End Eyeliners

Reader Rashmi wanted to get a list of some of my favorite eyeliners, particularly high-end shades, and I’m happy to oblige! I tried to go for an assortment of colors and finishes, but also some less “basic” shades, so you won’t find any staples like black on this list. You can see swatches of my list here. I can’t wait to hear what eyeliners make your top ten!

  1. Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy — no favorites list is complete without this shade of bluish-teal
  2. Urban Decay Pistol — a warm taupe
  3. Sephora Snakeskin Dress — an olive green
  4. Sephora 5th Avenue — a deep, dark warm gray
  5. Marc Jacobs Beauty Intro(vert) — a brightened pop of jade green
  6. Marc Jacobs Beauty Th(ink) –a deep, dark purple
  7. Urban Decay Deep End — a brightened blue
  8. MAC Lord It Up — a gold-shimmered brown
  9. Urban Decay Scorch — a golden brown
  10. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a cool-toned, bluish-purple

5 Must-Have Tarina Tarantino Beauty Products

Today, Tarina Tarantino Beauty will be on Hautelook (at 8AM PST) with their “core collection.” I don’t know exactly what that means and what shades will be available, but it seemed like a good time to do a top five featuring the brand!

  1. Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palettes — their eyeshadow formula is amazing–soft, silky, buttery, and dense–and the limited edition palettes are as lovely as their permanent palettes
  2. Eye Dream Hyperliners — all day, every day, these eyeliners are creamy, long-wearing, and ultra-pigmented (Spark of Envy being my fave)
  3. Dollskin Cheek Blushes — silky-smooth, pigmented, and blendable blushes in wearable hues
  4. Jewel Eyeshadow Palettes — if you love richly pigmented, buttery, smooth eyeshadows, highly recommend these!
  5. Conditioning Lip Sheen — luminous lip color with good color coverage, hydrating wear

Have you tried Tarina Tarantino Beauty products before?

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Eyeshadow Palette

Tarina Tarantino Floriculture Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00 for 0.72 oz.) contains eight eyeshadows inspired by flowers. Each eyeshadow contains 0.09 oz., which is almost double the size of the average full-sized eyeshadow (at 0.05 oz.). The shades can be used wet or dry, though the pigmentation is very good across all the shades, so it didn’t seem necessary to use any of these with a damp brush. Overall, the eyeshadows are soft, finely-milled, long-wearing, nicely pigmented, and easy to use. It’s been awhile since I’ve played with the brand’s eyeshadows, but testing this reminded me of just how amazing the brand’s powder products are–the texture really sells them.  Even without a primer, all of the shades wore for nine full hours without creasing or fading.
