FOTD: Teal Grunge

As I mentioned in my previous post, this was the look I had on when I went to Warped Tour. Warped Tour is a rock festival event, so I went for something darker.
To me, this is a very grunge look: dark and smokey. But instead of doing a plain black smokey eye, I incorporated a teal color.

Products Used:
~ELF Eyelid Primer
~Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
~NARS Night Flight eyeshadow
~NARS Tropic eyeshadow
~ELF liquid liner pen
~Maybelline The Falsies (I think..I honestsly can't remember)

How to Achieve this Look
1.Apply your primer and/or base. I used both my primer and Pixie Epoxy since I was going to be at a concert and I wanted my makeup to last as long as possible.
2.Take Night Flight, which is a black with blue shimmers, and
apply it on the outer half of the eye and on the outer V.
3.Taking a blending brush, blend out the harshness of Night Flight just slightly and make sure to blend the outer V as well, blending outwards towards the temple(Not all the way to the temple! Just saying in what direction).
4.Using a flat shader brush, apply Tropic, a bright teal blue with silver glitter, on the inner half of the lid.
5. With a blending brush, blend Tropic into Night Rider. Concentrate the blending at the middle part of the lid. Make sure to blend the  colors slightly past the crease.
6.Apply Night Rider on the lower lash line
7.Apply a little of Tropic in the inner corner.
8.Apply mascara and liner.


Products Used
~Benefit Erase Paste
~Skin79 Oriental BB Cream
~Artistry Translucent powder
~Jack Black lip balm
(No cheek products or lipstick to keep it simple and more wearable)

 See? I tell you, I love those rubber bracelet things! The one I am wearing in the crazy picture above is one from the band Silverstein.

I hope you guys like this look! It was kind of difficult to explain how to do the look, so I hope you understand my explanation. If not,could do a step-by-step picture tutorial on how to do it. Let me know if you want that :)
