EOTD: Simple Teal Smokey Eye


Colour on my eyes is something I'm still slowly getting into, as I'm usually one for cool toned eye makeup and a super bright lip. Today I went out for lunch with my partner and decided to avoid the hassle of reapplying lipstick after eating and play up the eyes instead. This super simple teal smokey eye that happened to exactly match my shirt is what I went with!


I've been really enjoying my Jordana eye base as my eye primer lately, it's one of the few bases that actually withstands my oily skin. Next I worked some of Naked from the Naked palette into my crease followed with this lovely teal shadow I had never used before in my Urban Decay Feminine palette all over the lid. I wanted the eyes to look smokey but not over the top as I was only going out for lunch, so I opted for a grey shadow and put gunmetal from the Naked palette into my crease and outer V. As always I had to do a dramatic cat eye and for this I've been loving the Maybelline Master Precise liner. To finish the look I used some crappy white pencil liner in my water line and tear duct, and then the Benefit They're Real on my top and bottom lashes.


A pretty simple but nice eye look in my opinion, if you have darker colour eyes this would look absolutely amazing on you! Let me know what you think and thanks so much for reading.
