FOTD: Winged tea

I am in love with Urban Decay's eyeshadow called Shattered. It's an iridescent shade of teal that reflects fine gold shimmers and has a lovely mint green undertone to it. Perfect for summer! It's very tan friendly. I usually wear it with brown but in this look I decided on a smoky moss green called Misdemeanor (also from UD).

The technique I used in achieving this look is pretty simple! This is what I did:

Step 1: Pat Shattered all over the lid, subtly winging it out.
Step 2: Draw a thick line on the roots of your upper lashes with Misdemeanor. I used a small, round brush to achieve this. Also line your lower lid.

Step 3: Create a thick wing using your eyeshadow, as shown.

Step 4: Blend the harsh edges of the teal eyeshadow with a beige eyeshadow (Sin).

Step 5: Apply very thin gel eyeliner (MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack) close to the roots of your lashes. Curl then apply mascara (Clinique High Impact).

And voila! It's a fun smokey look that isn't overpowering. For my cheeks, I used the Shu Uemura Glow On in Amber topped with the Mineraux Beach Tan Bronzer for an extra glow. For my lips, I used the NYX Round Lipstick in Pumpkin Pie topped with The Balm Plumping Gloss in Rootbeer.
