Metallic Teal Make-up Look

I’d been going back and forth all week, trying to decide whether or not to go out last night but due to the fact that I hate missing out, I decided to just go for it. Plus it meant I could get a bit dressed up which is always a good thing! For me, the night starts when you start getting ready, when you’re listening to some music, decided what make-up to use and what to wear. For this particular night out, I wanted something that would stand out a bit as I was wearing a black dress so I decided to go for a metallic teal kind of eye look with a neutral glossy lip.

Here are the steps I took to create this look:


- I began by priming my eyes with MAC’s paint pot in Soft Ochre to counteract any discoloration on my eyelids

- I then took one of Urban Decay’s 24/7 liners in the colour Junkie (amazing) and ran this all over my lid and along my lower lashline, blending out as I went along. These liners set really fast so it is important to work quickly with them.

- On a MAC 224 I took MAC’s eyeshadow Wedge and blended this above my crease

- From the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette, I took the colour Stash and packed this onto my lid using a MAC 242 brush, keeping the colour below the crease and away from the inner corner

- On a pencil brush, I took MAC’s Typographic and used this to further define my crease, using a blending brush to make it a little more blown out

- I highlighted my inner corner and brow bone using Urban Decay’s Virgin eyeshadow

- For my lower lashline, I took Stash on a pencil brush and blended this out, not caring to be neat.

- I filled in my brows using the Sleek brow kit in the colour Light

- On an angled brush from Sigma, I took MAC’s fluidline in Blacktrack and lined my upper lashline, creating a wing at the outer corner.

- I used Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara to coat my lashes lightly before adding Red Cherry False Lashes in the style #43.

- To prime my face, I used Avon’s Magix Face Perfector, concentrating the product on my T-Zone area

- For foundation, I used MAC’s Pro Longwear foundation in NC35

- I concealed my undereye area using the darkest shade from a Sonia Kashuk concealer quad, setting that with MAC Pro Emphasise

- I set my foundation using Ben Nye’s Banana Powder

- I then lightly bronzed my face using Bonjour Bronzer to add a little warmth and definition

- I then contoured using Benefit’s Hoola bronzer, adding further definition to my cheekbones and temples

- Finally, I used Margin blusher from MAC which has a pretty sheen to it, meaning I didn’t feel the need to use any additional highlighter


- I kept my lips really simple, only using a small amount of a Stila lipgloss in the colour bliss.

And that’s it! If you try this out, let me know, I would love to see! Or tweet me a picture at @beasbeautyblog.

    That looks really nice! I think you did the right thing having a low key lip with bold eyes looks good!

    This is such a pretty look. I’d quite like to try that Avon product as I’ve heard good things. Would you recommend? x
