Season Special: Dramatic Turquoise & Black Smokey Eye Look

Hi Barbie Dolls,
September is here, but it feels like Summer never left us! Rains, however bring a feeling of relief once in a while. The look today is super dramatic, perfect for this season keeping the upcomming festivals in mind.
The look demonstrated below is a beautiful turquoise eye look, with smokey black effect which smoothly transits into brown and blends with the crease.  The lip shade I have used is a bright one, you can also use a nude lippie to tone down the drama.

Breakdown of the eye makeup:

  • begin by priming your lids as we want the colors to show up and stay put the entire evening.
  • apply a turquoise shade eyeshadow in the lid of your eye.
  • layer up with a shimmery turquoise eyeshadow in the centre of your eyelid
  • apply matte turquoise eyeshadow in the tear duct followed by white to open up the eye
  • in the outer 'V' pat in black and start blending in the wind shield wiper motion.
  • move up towards the crease by applying brown, so that there is a smooth natural transition. 
  • remember to add drama by applying a hint of black & blue below the lower lash line as well.
  • Finish by applying a black eyeliner and mascara. 

The eyeshadows used were mainly from a Sephora Palette, unfortunately they do not have names. However you can find the exact same shades of turquoise in many brands,for instance, Mac Teal Collection (Sumptuous Olive, Aquadisiac, Shimmermoss, Newly Minted). 
Other products used were-Lakme eyeconic kajal in black, Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara along with Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara.

 Turquoise is my new found love. I love it so much that I am thinking of coloring my room 'turquoise'!
This is the first time I was doing a full face makeup look.
