I find It hard to wear teal color because it makes my face sickly yellow. But it tends to really bring out the blue of my eyes. I just can't win here! Unlike two of my lucky readers in this Christams Giveaway that is still opened ;).
A couple of weeks ago I was cought in a rut where I'd use the same copper cream shadow as a base and then layer all sorts of random colors powder eyeshadows on top. Woop, woop ephiphany!!
You can tone down the colors you are affraid of to wear on their own that way.
To play it even more safe, I used matte chocolate brown in the crease and a choc liner for good measure
I think it's kinda fun you can still see the teal undertones to it. But it turned out a color that is your average pastel green. Why not just use one pastel green instead of layering a couple of shade, you know what I mean?
I can certainly put my vibrant teal to a better use than this :)
