How to morph bright teal to neutral

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 :)

Eno leto vaje =)
Poglej kakšne stajše objave od začetka in boš videla, da nisem imela pojma.

Trik je v tem, da ugotoviš, koliko cm moraš držat aparat stran od očesa, da ti makro funkcija najlepše izostri. Mogoče ti tudi v navodilih piše. Potem pa samo še iščeš kot, pod katerim si sama sebi ne delaš sence.

Jaz sicer zdaj slikam kar s svojim mobitelom Sony Vivaz.

Ooooh very cool and pretty! I'll have to experiment with layering my shadows over all my bases :)

I think teal is a very good colour for you, you just need to think of something else! your iris works so well with blue and teal, and maybe you can use other things in the complexion to get rid of that yellow feeling!
