EOTD - Teal & Turquoise

This look was a quick and simple experiment in combining matte and shimmer finishes. I used MAC eyeshadows in Blu-Noir, Jewel Blue and Waternymph - the top row in the photo here. Unfortuntely all three are now discontinued (Waternymph was limited edition). I guess that goes to show how long ago I went through my "MAC phase" of collecting their colours - Waternymph came out in 2006!

However, you can find equivalent shades in the current MAC permanent line in Nehru (matte navy) Electric Eel (bright matte blue) and Steamy (shimmery turquoise) if you want to try something similar for yourself. Or indeed, you can find various dupes in other brands' collections.

Also used;

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
Bourjois volume Glamour mascara
GOSH Velvet Touch eyeliner (Black Ink)
Illamasqua Brow Powder in Motto


  1. Very pretty! I have Jewel Blue and hate it though, i just can't get any colour off it!

  2. Thanks Lillian. I've heard a few people say that about Jewel Blue. I guess that's why it was discontinued. I find you really have to pack it on to get the true colour. It kind of fades into a dark blue as it mixes with the oils on the skin. A good primer helps. x
