EOTD: From Day to Evening Teals

I often encounter people who are afraid to use bright colors, especially for day time wear. It is totally fine to stay with neutral colors, but if you are one of those people who wants to experiment with brighter colors, here are some tips on using bold colors.

For a more conservative day time look while still using a bright color, I would advise you to simply do a colored liner look. Chose one bold color and  line your upper lash line. You can also line your lower lash line with a different color, but that is optional. This is very wearable because the color will be subtle enough to be worn during the day.Something you an add to any eyeshadow looks to make it more wearable, is to add a light matte brown to the crease. This helps to balance out any bright colors.
Here is what I did, mind you I had this on all day and now it looks kind of bad.

I used MAC Siahi Fluidline on the upper lash line, a matte brown on the crease, and Urban Decay Ransom 24/7 liner on the lower lash line.

The easiest way to take your day time look to a night time look is to chose one eyeshadow that matches the color of the liner, and simply apply it on the entire lid. If you applied a second color on the lower lash line, intesify it with another similar-colored eyeshadow.
 I used a dark teal, sparkly mint, and dark purple from my YSL Midnight Garden Palette.

Of course you can use any colors you wish or you can also just switch you lip colors to do a day to evening change. This is really easy because you can make a simple night time look with one or two eyeshadows. Hope you enjoyed :) I will try to do another, more complicated day to evening look sometime int he future :D
