Colorful Makeup: Green, Teal, & Blue

Colorful Makeup:  Green, Teal, & Blue

I envisioned a green, teal, and blue combination, and I really went from there for this look. I’m also trying to work on using permanent or recently released products in my looks, so, even though it was unplanned and totally coincidental, this look is very much like the theme of Build-a-Quad: “The Tropics.”

Happy Monday! I usually love Mondays, but it’s my first day back at school since I’ve been on winter break for the past two weeks… sigh. It’s so hard to get back into the swing of things, you know? Boo school!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by putting a drop of water-based mixing medium (or water) on your brush, then apply Teal pigment as your eyeshadow base all over the lid with the 249. Using the 239, apply Juxt eyeshadow on the inner third of the eyelid. Next, apply Shimmermoss eyeeshadow on the middle third of the eyelid and lightly blend with the inner corner. Darken the outer third of the lid with Freshwater eyeshadow with the 239, gently brushing it into the lower crease. Next, define the crease by applying Deep Truth eyeshadow with the 226. Lightly tap and brush Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow directly above the crease to soften. With the 217, gently apply Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above the innerlid and towards the brow bone. To finish the eyeshadow look, sweep Femme-fi eyeshadow as a highlighter on the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying El Dorado Liner on the lower lash line and sweeping lashes with Exceptionnel mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sugarbomb to the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Freckletone lipstick first, and then layer Orgasm lipgloss for a glossy lip look.

Wow! This is a really gorgeous look. I would not have thought to do gold with the teals for some reason! LOL. I have always done silver metallics with blues and teals. Now I have options! I could even do browns, right? Love it. The NARS glosses are awesome, aren’t they. Orgasm is so pretty and it is really long-lasting.

I love this!!! Your looks and the spring season series are seriously getting me in the mood for spring! This negative weather in the northeast isn’t helping either…

Stunning!! I’ve always loved teals on you (and so have you! ;)) but this is exceptionally pretty, especially combined with those cheeks and lips.

*wanting Shimmermoss, Freshwater and Deep Truth*

This looks great on you, Christine! Good luck getting back to the swing of things at school… I have to leave the house quite shortly and I am NOT looking forward to it :/ At least you’re starting off the new year with a gorgeous, fun EOTD — I just have a large cup of caffeine to arm myself with!

I love the love of Freckletone, now I must get it now because I keep on looking at it and picking it up at the store but for some reason I haven’t bought it yet.

Love it!! Beautiful!! I’d love to wear teal, but damn my blue/green eyes lol. Maybe I should try?
Loving the look of that freckletone lipstick……am into the nudes at the mo’, wondering if its too dark for me? I tend to dislike more browny nudes, they look like mud on me lol

One of my fave looks!!

Hey Christine! This look is lovely, as always…first of all, I wanted to let you know how lovely El Dorado looks on you! I keep seeing it in your looks and it always looks so good! Like you, I’m in love with the whole gold-khaki family of colours and I love how you wear them as a pop of colour on your lower lashline, but I was just wondering…do you have a strategy that you use to apply them to the lower lashline? For some reason, UD 24/7 liners are so creamy that when I apply them they kind of get all gunked up between my lower eyelashes.

Thanks for your help!

That is absolutely gorgeous. I need to try that. It’s too bad I don’t have the stuff I’d need.

Looks like it’s time for a trip to MAC. =]

Christine, I’ve seen you use UD El Dorado in several looks. It’s gorgeous and I would like to buy it, but I cannot find it sold individally. Is it only available as part of the 24/7 Super Stash?
