Smoky Teal Cat Eye Look

For my BFF’s wedding, I went for a smoky eye with teal cat eye liner. I based it off of one of the looks in the UD Smoked Palette book and I used the Smoked Palette for it. Apologies for the pictures being from my travel camera and not my DSLR. That said, I absolutely love this look. I love how it turned out.

        roxcat Thanks Roxcat! I may try and recreate it again with classic black liner.

      I am really loving eye makeup that involves any type of teal. it also makes for a good transition from summer to fall.

      I would wear it if I could reproduce it! >_< I do love the shadowy cat eye and the way you brought it down to accentuate the inner part of your eye, too!

        Ciambella I’ll do a tutorial for you :)

      I love the way you squared the shadow and liner off. I don’t think I could wear this, but it looks lovely on you!

      This is stunning. I’m especially digging that your eyes look the same color as mine!

        aitch77 Mine are blue-green. They pull blue or green depending on what I wear :)

      The teal liner is GORGEOUS on you! I love colorful liners so this is definitely something I’d like to try!

        Mostly Sunny thank you :)

      I love that look! Gorgeous, wearable even for folks who prefer to use the bolder shades a little more sparingly, and a great way to further jazz up a semi-duochrome taupe. I may try recreating it with shadows I have – I think Damn Paladins might work for the taupe, and I’ll probably choose a slightly darker teal for the liner since I think DP is a darker color than the one you used.

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Sparklecrack Central Yay! yes!

    • misfitgirlie

      Beautiful! Yes, I would wear it! I am getting that UD Smoked palette! I got a Sephora gift card for my birthday and started squealing when I opened it because I said there is a palette I want but couldn’t afford! Then all the girls started asking which one and I told them and all the men tuned out, haha. Wish they sold that Junkie liner, as well, grr!

        misfitgirlie Keep an eye out for the junkie liner set, it was only $18 at Nordstrom Rack and I’ve seen it on sale at Hautelook. Might be on sale at UD.com right now.
