I know you guys love step-by-step makeup tutorials so here is a smoky look using a blend of turquoise and brass. Perfect if you are looking for a bit of color for spring!

Turquoise Smoky Eye Makeup Tutorial

Step 1. Using a synthetic brush like MAC #252 Larger Shader Brush, apply MAC Fluidline in Delphic over the eyelid as a base.

Step 5. Pat MAC Aquadisiac Eyeshadow onto the center of the eyelid and blend back and forth so there is a slight gradation.

Step 6. Using CoverGirl Vivid Impact Eyeliner in Midnight, draw a line along the upper and lower lashlines.

    Are there any MAC dupes for NARS dogon eyeshadow?

    • Reply Phyllis October 21, 2012 at 4:47 pm

      Hi Rina,

      MAC Club and Bobbi Brown Charcoal are the closest dupes to the two shades in Dogon.

    Thank you for this makeup tutorial. I can’t wait to try this Turquoise Smoky Eye Makeup Look! It looks good on you! I assume, this look is great especially at night if you’re partying with your friends or having a night out. ‘Cause the color and the blend of the shades are catchy during this time of the day. I love your lashes! Wanna have one, where’d you buy it? Thanks!
