My favorite way to make my cheeks pop is just using highlighter. I usually pinch my cheeks for a little flush of color and then just apply highlighter on my cheekbones and it gives the most beautiful look. When I have a little more time to do my makeup, I like to contour as well just to define my cheeks.

I put some light shimmer on my cheekbones with my Clinique blush, and then some home made blush (I make my own makeup!) on the apples of my cheeks πŸ™‚

I love to use a MAC 129 brush with a dusting of Pink Swoon blush on the apples then draw it back to the cheekbones. Since im so pale I dont need a lot to make it pop!

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is by using Delft pp by MAC! Using a great e/s base is the best way to make a beautiful color like teal to pop!

Instead of blush, i wear an all-over color stick in a slightly shimmery light pink color. it gives just the right amount of color plus a dewy look that looks great in the spring!

followed on twitter as well!

I totally love bronzers as blush and a little dip of golden eyeshadow just on top, to make my cheekbones shimmer! And may I say that this color looks SMASHING!!! <3

i love wearing teal eyeshadow as a line on my bottom lash line. I then like it with lots of mascara, keeping the top lids nude. Then red lipstick. pretty =)

I like to use it as a liner over my urban decay pencil liner. I haven’t really tried it as an all over shadow yet but i bet it would be nice with a dark blue on my crease.=)

I like to wear teal eyeshadow all over the lid with either a matte or shimmery brown color in the crease!

twitter: macupbytor

My favorite ways to make my cheeks pop is to contour the heck out of them, then throw on my blush (my favorite being MAC Fever) and highlight like crazy, with something like Silver Dusk.

I love to use teal shadow as a liner with golds and neutrals…but I would LOVE to win Shimmermoss so I can try pairing it with Birds and Berries from Liberty of London for a different teal look πŸ™‚

Thanks for this giveaway :]
My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is smudged on my lower lashline, i have brown eyes so plus side is that it makes my eyes pop and looks bigger :]

I love wearing a teal on my lid with soft brown or cork in the outer crease, black tied or carbon in the inner. or i sometimes like wearing it on my lower lashline.

i have steamy from mac and i just apply it under my water line with neutral eyes just to make a cute pop of color for school and summer !
πŸ™‚

My favorite way to wear Teal Eyeshadow would have to be by using it as a base in a smokey eye look. Teal Lids, charcoal crease and then black and teal smudged in the bottom lash line. πŸ™‚

I like to wear teal on the lower lashline with a more neutral look on the lid. It gives a pop of colour without being too over the top.

my favourite way to wear teal eyeshadow is along the lashline as a bright pop of colour with an otherwise dark sultry look.

My favourite way to wear teal eyeshadow is by applying a gold shadow all over the lid and add teal to the outter corner and crease of the eye, this makes the eye pop and the combination of gold and teal work WONDERFUL together…i love it!!!

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is either all over the lid with a darker teal in the outer corner and crease at night or as a liner during the day. =]

I used to have a teal eyeshadow, and I absolutely LOVED lining my lower lashlines with a pop of color. Definitely opened my eyes up! Add mascara, and I’d be good to go πŸ™‚

I wish I tried using it for the outer corner of my eyes for a more dramatic, brighter look. Maybe I’ll try it when I win this e/s, yeah? πŸ˜€

Teal is one of my favourite colours to wear on brown eyes. I use painterly as a base, apply teal on outer crease, and a shimmery goldish colour on the lid and tearduct.

I also like teal eyeliner. Make up forever sells amazing colours.. πŸ™‚

My favorite way to use teal eyeshadow is:
– Mac vanilla pigment all over the lid
– Teal(steamy) colour on the outer corner
– Mac black tied ( just a little bit) to darken the outer corner
– Mac bamboo e/s -to blend the edges
– Mac Polished ivory pigment for highlight..

I thought you had this particular question already before… oh well. Another way I like to make my cheeks pop is to do cream blush with powder highlight to set it!

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is to put it on my lower lashline with a brown or bronzy smokey eye look. I’m mostly a neutral eyeshadow girl, but once in a while, I LOVE having a little pop of color. It’s fun!

I wore “Birds & Berries” – which is darker and a bit greener, I believe – in a colourful smoky look recently. I wanted something dark and sultry but with a colour to it, and this eye shadow worked perfectly which a charcoal in the crease!

My favorite way to wear teal e/s is teal all over the lid with carbon in the crease and a simple highlight for the brow bone. I then pair it with peachy/coral cheeks and a coral/peach lipstick! I love teals!!

i loveeeeee putting teal on my waterlinee because i have a fair complexion and blue eyes. plus i love putting teal eyeshadoww on the center of my lids

Have you ever thought about reviewing the Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion and the DuWop lip primer? And, lipstick sealers like Benefit She-Laq and Sephora Lip Last?

my favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow would be on top of urban decay’s primer potion in sin (SO metallic-y!), or with another bronze/gold shadow.

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow: I apply a wash of teal color on my lid, then I foil that teal shadow and draw a thick line along my upper lash line. After that I use a navy blue eyeshadow close to my upper lash line and half way through lower lash line!!!then curl my lashes and apply mascara!!
I also RT this contest on my twitter account, user name: silentwhisper16

my favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is layered over MAC’s paint pot in Moss Scape or pair it with a pretty champagne shadow (cream or powder-depending on my mood) with a light pink or nude lip πŸ™‚

i love teal on the outer corner of my eyes, and right along my waterline. Since I have blue eyes it always makes them look awesome.

One of my fava ways to wear a teal eyeshadow is to use on the inner half of my lid and then use another green-based color on the outer half. Then I’ll usually blend a lighter green into the crease a bit and place a highlighting color under brow and in the inner corner of my eye. One of my fav to use is either UD Flipside or Misdemeanor. Have the Liberty of London one from MAC but would love another!

I would love to try Shimmermoss on my lash line and lower lash line with a gold like Retrospeck over the lid. So summery and I would put Coralista on my cheeks.

I love to wear teal eyeshadow as a bottom eyeliner. It is a great way to add color on those days that I am not doing a full face.

Hey doll! Please enter me :] My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is on the lower lash line, it really makes brown eyes POP! I dont own any teal eyeshadows at the moment, so this would be nice to have! I did however do a look with a blue shadow, so I am very convinced teal would be so much better! ♥ Good luck to everyone and best wishes!*

I like using a dark base (either blue or black) all over the lid upto the crease. I use either Sea Me shadestick or just a black eye pencil. Then, using a MAC 239, I pack the teal eyeshadow on the lid. I use a colour like Wedge to blend out my crease. Then I use either a dark brown (matte) in my outer v or a matte black shadow.

my favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is by creating a neutral shimmer eye with a teal eyeshadow on the lower lashline to give a pop of color!(:

I have steamy, so i will put that over my eyelid, blended out at the crease, carbon on the outer third, and slightly blended at the crease towards the inner part of my eye, and a neutral matte highlight under the brown bone. Looks great with peaches blush and a coral lipstick

I would wear it on its own washed out on the lid just for that lovely hint of teal coming through and playing off the green in my eyes!

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is to use a neutral cream base. Sweep teal eyeshadow all over my lid and use a dark coppery brown in the crease like MAC Mulch eyeshadow. It makes my blue eyes stand out incredibly and also works great with brown eyes πŸ™‚

I love wearing teals on half of the lid, fading out to an intense royal blue and a tinge of black at the outer corners. Always reminds me of the stormy tropical ocean.

Go with winged liner and mascara, and it’s smokin!

Retweeted too! xchicflic

I love wearing teal with black – it is always a good connection, especially paired with clothes in those colors! I also wear it with green (like Humid or Greensmoke) and with gold – especially in summer πŸ™‚

Hey Temptalia! May favourite way to wear teal eyeshadow is along the lower lash line to add that POP of colour to a really neutral eye look. To do this I love using my MAC 114 short shader brush. BEAUTIFUL! hehe.

I love to keep my eyeshadow neutral, like a champagne or light gold, and then use teal eyeshadow to line my upper lashes. It’s a fun pop of color!
I really hope I win πŸ™‚

I’m mostly a neutrals-girl, but when I do wear colors like teal, I use them to line my lower lash line. It’s a safe way for me to wear those gorgeous shades!

pale gold/silver on the inner two-thirds, teal on the outer third for a daytime look. i use a glittery base, add matte black for the outer V and falsies if i wanted a dramatic evening look! πŸ™‚

my fav way to use teal is on my lower lash line with some black mascara on my top lashes. it’s a great summer look that makes brown eyes pop!

I like to use a teal shadow on the lid, and use a flesh colored highlighter (like MAC Brule)from the crease to the brow – keeping the color primarily on the lid makes it easier for me to get away with bold colors at work

I can’t pull off bright colours on my whole eye, but i still love them! so i make it work for me by using neutral browns on my lid and then a pop of teal on the lower lashline. makes my eyes stand out so much!

i Love to wear teal eyeshadow on the lower lash line with a neutral eye. it makes my eyes pop without being too overpowering for school.

Although teal is a gorgeous color, it doesn’t really work for me, so my favorite way of wearing teal is on the lower lash line, just to give it a pop of color.

Favourite way to wear teal eyeshadow is wet as eyeliner on my upper and lower lashline. 2nd favourite is under a black shadow on my lids for a little extra “oomph”.

I like to wear teal eyeshadow either a liner on my bottom lashline or all over my lid blended out with bronzy gold or pewter grey in the crease.

I put teal all over the lid and add a dark brown like embark from MAC to the crease topped with a simmery black in the outer corner and MAC’s Shroom on under the brow bone. On the cheeks I just MAC’s peachtwist and I opt for a neutral lip like Maybelline’s Nearly There topped with MSC’s Phiff.

I sure hope I win cause I have been eyeing this shadow for a minute.

Teal is perfect for my brown eyes, so I just take a small-med sized, stiff blending brush, and I run it across my upper and lower lashline. Some will end up on my waterline, too, and it just is the quickest way to smoke out my eyes and make them pop!

I like to go all out with teals and create a very dramatic and bright look! I use a light teal like Surreal on the inner lid, blend it into a medium teal like Steamy on the outer lid, and darken the crease and outer corner with Plumage, maybe even adding a little black to smoke out the outer V…Then I use something like Aquadisiac to blend the crease colour out to a light neutral highlight. Keep the rest of the face as simple as possible!

My Favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is with a peach eyeshadow all lver the lid and crease and then use the teal eyeshadow over blue liner just on the upper lashline πŸ™‚ makes a perfect Look for summer!! I’m wearing this look today actually πŸ˜› topped with mascara a thin line of black eyeliner and bronzer on the cheeks!

i love to wear teal shadow on my lower lash line when i wear neutrals, or at the inner corner for a little unexpected pop πŸ™‚

that’s a very difficult question, i love the colour teal, but it’s hard to combinate it. Most often i just put a lighter shade at the inner corner of the eye the, teal and then at the other V and the crease some bluish darkgrey eye shadow. And a little bit of darker grey kohl pencil at the lashes. I think this helps to make the teal pop, but not to look like a rainbow or a blue eye.
Then I use highlighter on my cheeks and a little bit of color on my lips. But just a ‘Your lips but better’ colour.

I like doing a neutral eye with a pop of teal on the lower lashline. I think the bit of color really makes it stand out! ^_^

use vasanti’s magic liner to make it into an e/s or put a small thin line along the bottom of my inner crease for a pop of colour.

I adore this colour! Lately I’ve been wearing teals and blues just in the inner corner and along the lashline on the inner part of my lids. Sometimes I then blend it out into a gold or more neutral colour πŸ™‚

What a lovely eyeshadow πŸ™‚
I would wear it under my eyes as a pop of color since I like to have a neutral eye, I find that more appropriate for school.

I’ve never worn teal before but with shimmermoss since it’s kinda of like a POP color, I’d apply it all over the lid and maybe smoke it out with black and thick eyeliner to make sure the teal really stands out against the black. But if I wasn’t going to make it pop I would defiantly pair it with some darker blues and Auto de Blue eyeliner.

I love wearing teal as an eyeliner over a very light frosty blue/teal color, or dusting the teal over a smokey liquid eyeliner (like Lancome artliner in smoke, makes the eyeliner look metallic teal).

My fav way to wear teal eyeshadow let alone any non neutral e/s ( ill wear it as a liner with a neutral) is as a lid color or outer V, for me go bold all they way or don’t wear it lol that’s just me.

my favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is to apply it all over the lid and add a dark grey or black to slightly smoky it up… I then apply liquid eyeliner on both top and bottom waterlines. I also apply false lashes, just so that my eyes stand out. I finish it off with a nude lipstick.

Hi all…

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is as follows: Use some kind of either teal or black base to intensify the color, cover the base with teal shadow (up to the crease area), wear a bright white highlight (like Mac’s Crystal Avalanche), blend teal and white highlight together. Wear a peach color blush, like Benefit’s coralista or Mac’s Ripe Peach. Wear a peach lipstick, like Mac’s Peachstock.

Hope I win πŸ™‚ and thank you.

i like using my teal eyeshadow on my inner corner..it sounds weird..but it looks really hot!! I also use it on my crease or under my eye.

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is to use it in the crease so it still shows up when my eyes are open πŸ™‚ Second favorite is to use teal eyeliner.

Teal eyeshadow is best worn in massive amounts! Why have a gorgeous color like this and just have in the crease? If I win, I’ll be using this baby on my entire eyelid with some chocolate eyeliner and massive mascara. Can hardly wait!

ohhhh i so love this colour!!!!!!!!

i adore the combination with satin taupe on the lid and teal eye shadow under the low lashline making a smokey effect!! LOVE IT!!

I just wore some yesterday! I love to wear a beige satin color on my inner half of the lid then the teal color on the outer corner then in my crease i use a deep green and blue.

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is either on my lash line(s) as a liner for a fun pop with a neutral look or in the crease with a gold like UD Baked on the lid for an unexpected look!

as a thick wet shadow-line along my lashline. Brings out my brown eyes while distracting from my tired u/e bags.

thanks for hosting a giveway Christine! *muuuuah*

I use MAC delft paint pot as a base, the teal eye shadow all over the lid, MAC freshwater on the crease and MAC Plumage on outter V! I usually use MAC soft brown to blend the crease color and brow highlight.

Hi! My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is with a light lipstick, maybe pink or coral, and pair the eyeshadow with a nice purple eyeliner on the lower lash line!

For school I like to do a neutral eye and then take a teal eyeshadow and put it under my bottom lashes for a touch of color. But at night I like to put a pink or purple eyeshadow all over my lid with a teal color in the crease, I think it looks really cute and colorful!

I usually do a mermaid look with teal eyeshadows… Other times I will dab it right in the middle of my lid with a lighter shadow on the corners for a more unique look…

I love teal eyeshadows! My favorite way to wear Teal Eyeshadow is to make it dramatic! I put the teal colour on the lid, use Lise Watier’s eyeshadow in teal in the crease (it’s black with teal veining running through it, So gorgeous), then add black in the outer V.

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is to put it in the inner half and put a neutral brown like Satin Taupe in the outer half and blend to the crease πŸ˜‰

my favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is either has eyeliner for my lower lash line or winged on top–if it’s a special occasion i might do a ring around the whole eye! πŸ™‚

I like to start with UD’s Graffiti on the inner half of my lid, then the teal shade on the outer half, and something darker in the crease (straight black if I’m doing an evening look).

Of all the shadows I have, I don’t have one teal! However, if I did I would put it in the crease to give my blue eyes a pop of color (:

My favorite way to wear teal eyeshadow is with a lime green or dark blue eyeshadow. I wear teal with lime green for day and with the dark blue/navy for night and smoke it out,

my way to wear teal shadow is to throw it in all the lid and add some carbon on the crease and ready to party, disco,. Haa thanks

Ah, Shimmermoss is such a lovely color! Sadly I do not have it in my collection yet.
I Like to wear teel eyeshadow mixed with some green (Luky Green or GOSH’s KIWI are some of my favorites). That really makes my eyes pop. I would also use a pink, subtile blush like Well Dressed by mac and a transparent gloss on my lips.

I LOVE to wear my eyeshadow smudge right underneath my eyes. Teal is such a beautifully color and againts my hair and skin it really makes my eyes stand out! Or sometimes I’ll add a little to my outer corners to add some color to my eyes.

I love wearing teal eyeshadow on my eyelid paired up with a brown crease such as MACs brownscript and saddle and then I would use a highlight such as brule and highlight my tear ducts with nylon or ricepaper.

I love to occasionally use teal eye shadow in the inner corners of my eyes when I do a smokey eye look, to give it some color!

I love wearing teal eyeshadow with black liner and lots and lots of mascara! It works so well with my skin tone too because I have a tanned complexion and it looks beach-y and summer-y πŸ™‚

Bluish-green, teal colors are my favorite. I like lining my eyes with them. My mom’s been doing this a lot with her Birds & Berries, too. Ha!

I like to wear teal eyeshadow on my lid with a purple color like MAC Nocturnelle in the outer corner, then blend with a medium brown like MAC Mulch or Bronze in the crease, and add a warm matte highlight color under the brow. Oh, and line with black gel liner. I like a bit of color and a bit of drama!

I know you also love teal eyeshadows (like me!). I like to apply them in the eyelid and golden or blue tones to complete the look!

i like to wear teal eyeshadow with a plain black tee to make my eyes stand out…usually ill go with neutral pinks on the cheeks and lips when i wear it.

Teal would be amazing on the entire lid…with a darker matte brown in the crease and outer V. Also…I like wearing teal in the outer V…with a lighter lid…and black liner.

I usually spray some fix+ on my liner brush and then use teal eyeshadow as a eyeliner to make my eyes pop,and just give my eyes a little bit of fun color in the summer.

I love to wear it with greens and blue. I think that teal is also a great color with softer brown tones too. I usually catch myself using it with humid and carbon to make a smokey look to go along with it.

I like to line my upper and lower lashes with teal, then black mascara, a light eyeshadow like MAC naked lunch and basta!

I like to to apply it all over my lid and line my lids with gold eyeliner! I also appply shimmery gold shadow to the corners of my eyes!

When I use teal I like to put it all over my lid and then compliment it with a bronze color in the crease. Then I use a bronzer all over my face. Ps. my favorite color is teal haha. No seriously. it is.

I love to wear teal along with brown (in the outer corner) and a highlight with a bit of mascara. something coral on the cheeks and a some lip gloss!

I actually wore teal today! I used urban decays 24/7 liner in Flipside on my lid, and then layered their flipside shadow over the liner for a really bright intense teal. i also used a little brown in the crease and kept the rest of my makeup natural and warm with bronzer, neutral lips, and a little coral blush.

i love to wear teal eyeshadow by just smudging it along my lower lash line! It gives me a pop of color and brings out my eyes!

i just put a wash of teal all over lids and have a bronze glowy face going on so it’s really summery! i don’t do too many other colors on my eye unless i wanna smoke it out for a night look.

I love wearing teal eyeshadow on my lower lashline. It gives an unexpected burst of color to what could have been a regular neutral eye. My students always ask, “Do you have blue on the bottom?”

It is my go-to eye mullet…you know “business on the top, party on the bottom”!

my fav. way to wear teal eyeshadow is to start off with a great primer UDPP & a base that will make the color pop like a mac paint pot or shadestick… then use your fav. brown eyeshadow teal & brown go excellent together!

I LOVE teal with gold, to me it’s pretty and always looks fabulous. So I like to wear it paired with gold shadow and black or dark brown liner. Thanks!

I like to create dramatic thick eyeliner… but then again i do that with so many other colors too! πŸ˜› but i have brown eyes so i guess teal makes it stand out more so than others.

If i am wearing teal during the day i use a nude/pink (i.e MAC painterly paint pot) or blue cream base. If it is in the evening, i use a dark black base such as MAC blackground paint pot.In both cases the idea is to bring out different shades of the colour. I usually pair it with a liner that compliments the overall look (Urban decay 24/7 zero is my fav). I use a light coral blusher such as MAC “Style” and a peachy or nude lip gloss πŸ™‚

My favorite way to wear teal is to wet the shadow and sweep it on the lids over a fairly nude base, so that it looks almost metallic, use a shadow such as print on the bottom lashes and waterline to smoke out the eye and lots of black mascara and to wear bronzer on cheeks with a nude lip.
