When it comes to teal makeup though, many of us have been afraid to go there----comments like tacky, unsophisticated or even, dated have been associated with the medium blue-green hue.
But that has all changed, because teal has become the big summer IT color of 2010.
So, you ask, how is teal really different from the teal of days gone by?
It's simple. You apply teal with a lighter touch, and we mean......'A little goes a long way, ladies.'
We stumbled onto beauty website called A Brilliant Brunette. And we were blown away by the color photos and makeup how-tos in Beauty by Jacqueline.
Check out the photo above of Jacqueline rockin' the teal eyeshadow. We hope she doesn't mind us sharing her pic here. And note how soft the rest of her makeup palette is.
That is the key when it comes to pulling off teal eyeshadow and liner. Allow your eyes to be the focus. By the way, teal and brown eyes look delicious together. But makeup pros agree that any eye color and skin tone can wear teal quite beautifully.
We found some lovely teal eye makeup for you to try:
1. NARS Duo Cream Eyeshadow in Burn it Blue from the Summer Collection ($32).
2. M.A.C. Eye Kohl Pencil in Float on By from the MAC To the Beach Collection ($14.50).
3. Lancome Ink Artliner in Teal Delight from the Spring 2010 Collection (gel liner) ($23.50).
Teal looks very pretty with warm neutrals like caramel, peach, and camel.Don't be afraid to try a tiny bit of teal these days because it is the big summer IT color in 2010.
