FOTD # 3: Teal and Peach

Hello, lovelies!
This post is going to be all about another FOTD I came up with. :) 

FOTD # 3: Teal and Peach @ Beauty Bunker

This is a look which I wore about a month ago, but which I never got around to writing a blog post about.

It's a really simple look which features an eyeshadow pigment that I adore -- the Venus & Mars Mineral Eyeshadow in Halo (which I have a review on here btw).

I like this look since it has a nice pop of color yet it's not too terribly dramatic, in my opinion. If you like quite colorful eyeshadow looks, then this would be a nice one for you to look into.

I didn't use too many products for this look, and it is fairly easy to put together. Here are the things I used.

FOTD # 3: Teal and Peach @ Beauty Bunker

EB Concealer stick in Beige
Ellana Minerals Primer in White Chocolate and Foundation in Caramel Latte

Revlon Beyond Natural Lip Tint SPF 15 in Peach

Here are some more pictures of this eye look.

Here, you can see the soft peach blush which I used to go with the peach lips.

Here, you can more clearly see the nice peach lips which I paired with the shadow. The balance of the cool-toned eyes matched with the warm nudey peach lips makes for a great combination, I think. :)

I achieved this eye look by applying the green pigment Halo all over my lids using a patting motion. 

(Tip: Patting pigments rather than sweeping them on is important to avoid lots of fallout and to ensure maximum color payoff!)

I then lightly used a taupey brown shade on the crease area to provide some dimension. Afterwards, I made a thin black cat eye using the black pencil liner, topping it off afterwards with some black eyeshadow. The brow area was highlighted using some concealer topped off with some powder.

To finish it off, I curled my lashes and used 2 coats of mascara.

Here, you can clearly see how the shadow was laid out. It's a pretty simple look, as I said. :)
