While I was coming up with this eye makeup, I decided to add some teal in an unexpected place. The teal stands out in pictures and in person, especially since the rest of the eye shadows are neutral, but it’s still pretty subtle at the same time. I used my new Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in “Siren” — a beautiful teal with blue shift. I applied it along the outer half of my lower lash line. I added MAC “Electric Eel” on top of it to make the liquid liner look blended out.
This makeup look was inspired by sun setting on a beach, when the sky lights up in orange hues that contrasts the blue ocean horizon. I used two shades of orange on the lid — a lighter shimmer and a darker matte. The shimmer next to the matte color creates a glistening effect. I applied a bright blue eye shadow on the lower lash line to represent the ocean.
I’ve been holding onto a gorgeous MAC Pro Glitter in “Turquoise” for a couple months now, and I finally got around to using it! I put it on top of one of my favorite Inglot eye shadow colors — a matte teal (“372″). The glitter sparkles so much more than these pictures show! If you don’t have this MAC Pro glitter, any cosmetic grade turquoise glitter will do!
For this Eye of the Day, I kept the eye shadow colors on the lid warm (a matte yellow and a shimmery copper), and I used a cool color (teal) to add a subtle pop of color on the lower waterline. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, orange and blue are complementary colors — two colors directly opposite from each other on the color wheel. Since copper is a type of orange color, I intentionally used teal (a form of blue) to add complementary contrast to the look.
For this look, I’m featuring the dark teal Mega Metal Shadow called “Odalisque” that I wrote about in my MAC Peacocky Collection review. I lined my lower water line with a similar colored eye pencil, and I added a touch of purple along the entire lash line for an extra punch of color.
