Tale of Teal.......

I must say, I never imagined this look to come like this. It is intermix of Teal with Grey and Silver. It may not be your usual eyeshadow color but I believe that eyes do not fail to mesmerize with makeup like this too. An very unusual makeup combination which somehow worked really nicely. I was inspired by a ray of moonlight falling on dark blue sea in midnight........the ripples and waves and all. (

TIP: - Keeping "Grey" as common, you can adjust amount of Teal pigment while mixing going from light to dark according to skin tones. For my medium toned skin, I mixed equal amount of teal and grey (on the eye lids).

Lets see how to do this look!


  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
  • Bourjois Anticernes Pinceau Brush Concealer
  • Kryolan Loose Powder in TL14
  • MAC Mineralize Blush in Gleeful that is described as dirty blue pink with gold pearl
  • Clinique Long last lipstick in Violet Berry

For aesthetic terms, I would call this eye makeup is "Ballet of eyeshadows" and the techinique as "Shadow Overdance."
  • Start with Benefit Lemonaid Eye lid correcting primer from the lash line to the crease diffusing it outwards.
  • Apply Clarins Mystery Grey all over the lid, blending it into the crease with dome shaped brush. This eyeshadow becomes your base eyeshadow. I love the multi colored sparkle in this eyeshadow.
  • With MAC 217 gently dust, MAC Pigment in Teal over the entire lid adjusting the intensity. I suggest begin with less product and make layers.
  • On the outer corners apply MAC Cloudburst eyeshadow just to create some shading and line the eyes with it.
  • Apply teal grey on lower lids also.
  • In the inner corners and on the brow bone highlight with Stila Kitten which you can find on clicking it,online. I also added some teal over Kitten eyeshadow for continuity.
  • Apply 2-3 coats of Clinique High impact mascara in Black.
  • Comb the brows with a brow brush.

Some more pics.

Do let me know, if you liked the look. You can create this look from 120 color eyeshadow palette 2nd edition of BH cosmetics also (I have ordered mine but not received it yet).

Till then,
