Spring for Teal: An Eye Makeup Tutorial

3 years ago

Hello lovely Luuuxers!

Today I am back with a springlike eye makeup tutorial! Although the weather is STILL cold where I live, I am getting so anxious for spring to finally arrive! So, I thought I would start playing around with some colors and adding them back into my makeup routine!

The eye look that I will describe to you is really easy to do, and wearing colors on the lower lashline is an easy way to brighten up the eyes and add a bit of spunk without it being too much, especially for someone like me who get shy around bright colors!


1. After prepping your eyes with your favorite primer (I used the MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre), use a fluffy blending brush to sweep a matte, warm brown all across the lid and blend it up into the crease. The matte brown I used is one I just got, called Saddle by MAC.

2. Using a shimmery tan shadow (or, in my case, a loose pigment called `Tan` by MAC), pat with a flat eye shading brush right onto the middle of the lid to create that iridescence right above the eye iris.

3. Line the upper lashline with a bronze eyeliner; I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay Creme Eyeliner in Bronze.

4. Using a bright teal eyeliner, line the lower lashline as well as the waterline. My favorite bright teal is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Deep End.

5. To soften up the undereye and make the color even more vibrant, sweep a matching teal eyeshadow on the lower lashline on top of the eyeliner you just placed. I like using Urban Decay `Shattered` and applying with a small pencil brush.

6. Finally, do all of the normal finishing touches:
-apply mascara on the top and bottom lashes (doing the bottom lashes gives a nice contrast to the bright color)
-highlight inner corner and underneath the brow
-tightline the upperlashline with a black eyeliner or eyeshadow
-fill in brows however you normally do them

And that is how you do it! It is a very simple look that helps us all get out of our neutral-eye rut! You can, of course, experiment with the color that you use on the lower lashline. A bright purple would look amazing as well! Not to mention, you could always add several colors and have them fade together, sort of like an ombre effect. The possibilities are endless! :)

Let me know how you like this look, or if you plan on trying it yourself! Thanks for reading, everyone!
