8 Ways to Wear Teal Eyeshadow
MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow is an absolutely stunning shade of teal in the pot, and it is such a hard color to resist picking up–even if you’re not sure what to pair it with. It’s vibrant, richly pigmented, and has such a nice tone to it.
Bright Chartreuse Green
Apply a bright pop of chartreuse, like MAC Bitter eyeshadow, all over the lid with a fluffy brush like the 239. Pat the teal eyeshadow, like MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow, in the outer crease with a crease brush like the 226. Finish by highlighting the brow bone with a soft yellow-based highlighter, like MAC Nylon eyeshadow.
Try applying a light white or frosty white, like MAC Blanc Type eyeshadow, all over the lid with a fluffy brush like the 239. You can also opt for a MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow in the crease and on the lower lash line to tie the two together. Add a bit of blue-green like MAC Bottle Green eyeshadow to add depth to the crease. Finish by highlighting the brow bone with a soft highlighter, like MAC Phloof! eyeshadow.
Soft Sky Blues
When paired with softer blues, MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow ends up looking bluer rather than as green-teal as it can. One of my favorite ways to do this is by applying a light silvery-blue like Surreal eyeshadow all over the lid. I layer a medium blue like MAC Mutiny pigment on the middle-to-outer portion of the lid. Gently, I tap MAC Freshwater eyeshadow into the outer crease, but very subtly so only add a bit of depth without adding excessive darkness. Finish by highlighting the brow bone with a soft highlighter, like MAC Phloof! eyeshadow.
Open Up Peepers
Teal doesn’t have to be scary, and it doesn’t always have to be blended away. Using MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow to line the lower lash line can add a lot of color without going overboard. You can also feather it over your upper lash liner – like accenting black by making it teal-black instead. Finish by highlighting the brow bone with a soft highlighter, like MAC Shroom eyeshadow.
