Mermaid's Choice: Smokey Teal FOTD

Hi Everyone... I have not posted any decent look for quite some time because I am just not in the mood. Yesterday was our enrollment and I have not yet received my grades.. I am praying that Lord will pass me. This semester is really hard and stressful for me and this coming semester is even harder. I just have an inkling that its gonna be hard because of the line of professors that I have. In this look, I used the samples that all natural face gave me.. It has a very cute name it is called Mermaid's Choice, hence, the title of this post. I forgot to take picture of its swatch but you could see on the picture that it is very shimmery. Their eyeshadow is very pigmented. One swipe and the color shows up beautifully.

I really think that smokey eyes is the easiest look to do because you just have to blend e/s very well to achieve the look that you want. You can go from natural to bold. So here is a very simple tutorial of this look:

1. Prime your lid. I used The All Natural Face Primer and then apply a matte black eyeshadow all over your lid.

2. Apply teal eyeshadow over the black e/s and blend.

3. Contour your crease with grayish silver eyeshadow and blend some black e/s on the outer v to create more depth to your eyes. Highlight your brow bone with light colored e/s. here, I used a light flesh eyeshadow from my 78 pc. palette.

4. Apply black liner on your upper lid and water line. I lined my lower lash line with brown liner to add more drama. I chose brown liner because it somehow softens the look that the black liner created. Lastly, put on some mascara and falsies. I am using my new falsies from landmark which is really cheap. I got it for only 34.75 pesos!! I want more of these falsies.. I don't feel like I am wearing one and it is so easy to apply. I think it has something to do with it being curled already. hihi
