Dramatic Teal Smokey Eyes With Pop of Gold


                        Welcome back love bunnies! How was everyone's weekend? Buy anything good ;)? While you're thinking up that answer, let's get into the makeup look. Today I decided to shift gears to a tertiary color, TEAL. Normally I don't use teal simply because it's such a powerful color, and does take some time to master blending wise, but I was so entranced in Deep End from Urban Decay's Spectrum Pallet, I JUST HAD to cook somethin' up! Paired with a glittery gold, and simple glossy lips, anyone who replicates this bad boy of a look is sure to turn heads. Due to the delicate nature of tertiary colors (blue-green, in this case), one must keep their pallor in sync, and muted in the terms of contrast. Although the white gold contrasts the teal, the gold isn't pure, and still has a white shift to it, understand?

                      Anyways, moving along, I hope all of you loves enjoy! Would you wear a dramatic look as daring as this? Let me known in the comments below!! Just in case one of you actually do like this look, but wouldn't pull it off, for ways to tone this down, try choosing less dramatic lashes, and shifting the teal on the lower lash lines with a bit of gold on the lids! It'll give you that perfect hint of color, without "overdoing" it.
