Teal Out the Night

Hey everyone!

In previous post, I said that I was gonna be doing a teal look, and yes today's post is gonna be it! However, I am not using MAC Double Feature, instead I am using a new cosmetic line of Salma Hayek called NUANCE, where you can find it in your local CVS.

This look is definitely great for girls night out!

I am gonna stop rambling, and lets get into the tutorial! (click the pictures for a larger view)

steps by steps
  1. First off, of course, prime your eyes for keeping the eyeshadows out from creasing. My favorite eye primer is currently Benefit Stay Don't Stray
  2. Use the NUANCE Palette, take color number 1 (shimmery light teal color), and apply it onto your lid with MAC 239
  3. Apply color number 2 (matte grey color) onto your crease with Sigma E35. This also helps you to blend color #1 out. 
  4. Take color number 3 (dark forest green), and place it in the outer corner your eye with Sigma E35. Then, blend it in windshield motion with Sigma E40
  5. Highlight your browbone, which is right under the arch of your brow, and inner corner of your eye with color number 4 (shimmery champagne color) with Sigma E40
  6. If you are satisfied with it, go ahead and apply black eyeliner and mascara. However, smokey eyes is like my signature look, so I wanted to darken it up since it is a night look anyway! :) So, take any matte black eyeshadow, I used Stila eyeshadow in Makalu. Apply it onto your outer corner, then blend it again in windshield motion with Sigma E40
  7. Line your lower lash line with color number 3 with Sigma E30
  8. Then, also line the outer corner of your lower lash line with Stila in Makalu with Sigma E30. 
  9. Line your upper lash line and water line with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil Liner in Zero.
  10. Curl your lashes and apply two coats of Rimmel New Volume Accelerator Mascara in Black.
You're done! 

Now lets move on to the face...

products used

face brushes

steps by steps 
  1. Apply your favorite foundation all over your face with Sigma F80. My favorite is Lioele Triple Solutions BB Cream
  2. Cover your dark circles or any imperfections with Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Medium with Sigma F70. Pat it on with the brush, blend it with your ring finger. 
  3. Set everything up with a face powder, like Palladio Rice Powder in Natural with a powder puff. 
  4. Contour your cheeks with Benefit Hoola Bronzer using MAC 109. Apply it also onto your temples, jawlines, and neck. 
  5. Sweep NARS Orgasm Blush onto the apple of your cheeks with MAC 109
For lips, use any nude or nude rosy pink lipsticks. Add lipgloss if you want to :) I used MAC Lipstick in Creme d' Nude, then I top it off with MAC Lipstick in Dressmaker Dressmaker (limited edition). 

And now you're ready to dance all night! :) 

Love y'all,
