I’m not gonna lie, I was really afraid to wear teal eyeshadow. I bought one about a year ago and tried to wear it but always washed it off afterwards. I’ve done this same look two different ways and finally decided this was the one I was the most comfortable with.
The teal shows just slightly enough that it complements my eye color without overwhelming my entire eye area. I really do enjoy doing eye shadow tutorials but sometimes feel that I don’t have the best eye shape for them since a lot of my lid is hidden when I open my eyes.
I watch eye shadow tutorials fairly often and notice that there aren’t a lot of beauty gurus with my same eye shape so I have to improvise when I’m following their tutorials. As a result though, I have literally started noticing the eye shapes of everyone I meet and usually sit and analyze how I would put eye shadow on them if I needed to. The biggest thing I’ve noticed is how many people actually do have a similar eye shape to mine, meaning a small sliver of the lid by the eyelashes and then the brow bone and highlight area. I think that was the push I needed to finally do this look because I am hoping there a few people out there who really could benefit from this tutorial.
I hope you enjoy it!
