Teal Friday


Wow, already so many comments in my giveaway post O_O
You are just wayyyy too awesome, you do know that, right?

But you're here too see makeup, so let see makeup ;D

Today I wanted to make a matte look, so I chose MAC Unsquare (still my favourite brown) and SMH's Teal Tuesday.
Personally I loved this color combo ( I've done other looks with brown and teal before too):

On lips is MAC's Viva Glam Gaga with Gosh's Soft'n'Shine Lipbalm  in Aubergine:

(had to show my nails <3)

And as I have read from my giveaway comments, my tutorials seem to be quite popular :D

So this is a tutorial, if  you have only eye pencil, mascara and  perhaps MAC Young Punk eyeshadow (optional) AND only 5 min (or less) time.

So here's the finished look (with Young punk):

What do you need (aka. what did I use :D )

Urban Decay Zero eye pencil
(MAC Young Punk eyeshadow)
First the natural (messy) eye:

Then HEAVY lining on upper and lower lid and waterline:

Then we blend the black with a small brush:

Like this:

Then we just add mascara, and we have a SUPER easy smokey :D

Then we can add MAC's Young Punk on top of the black:

And there we have it. It's definately not perfectly blended or anything, but it's done in couple minutes:

That's it, remember the giveaway , keep leaving comments 'cosI looove reading  them, they are so lovely and couraging!
