Askmewhats Version: "Teal I Met You"

Happy day everyone!
LOL I can't stop smiling on my own post title.
I've named this look "Teal I Met You" because I've realized that I haven't been doing much "teal" looks :) So I've finally met a nice looking teal color! And I'm in love with it!
It's not so drastic but it's "cool" enough to be done for night outs!

Let's just say, a look for both day and night! :D

Here's a final look!

Askmewhats Diagram

Always prep your lids with a primer

And if you want a more "obvious" look

Apply any cream based e/s

Since I am eyeing for a bright look

I applied Fashion 21's Pearl e/s stick

all over lids including
the inner corner

up to the brow bone

Step 1:
Using any flat shader brush. Pat on a matte white e/s all over the inner thirds of the eye including the brow bone area (the effect is shimmery because I have a shimmery cream e/s base)

Step 1:
Pat on Makeup Masala Mineral in Jadoo on the center of the lids. Do not worry about blending yet

Step 3:
Using a blending brush, apply any dark "bluish toned" e/s on the crease area. I am using Laura Mercier's Blue Sky Quad's darkest color. It has a hint of blue sparkles on it.

You can always choose
intensify the colors
if you want

Step 4:
Create small winged eye look with your choice of gel liner/liquid liner/ eyeliner pencil. I am using Stila Smudge Pots in Black with my Ecotools Bamboo Eyeliner brush.

Do not forget to curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara. Thanks Gracie for the Clinique Mascara sample :) Love it!

Final Look

It's time for me to smile to everyone
and say BYE BYE :D

Have you realized that I've got no nail art this week?
I had a week rest for my poor nails!

Keep smilin'!
Stay happy!

  2. So pretty! I love teal on you. And that LM quad looks amazing!

  3. haha can't pull off blue
    looks gorgeous on u though! <3

  4. ooooooo i'm in LOVE with this look!! Hehe I giggled at your title too :)

  5. lol @the titeal :D

    pretty look :D

  6. teehee i lovve the title!! and the eotd is soo cutee!

  7. pretty nikki.. :D the colors are really nice :D

  8. btw, i love your brows.. :D it looks so full and perfect for your face,,

  9. luveet!!! wish i could pull dark e/s.. i kept practising but it always looked overdone hehe

  10. lol. what a cheesy title haha like i've said before, dark shades look good on you. (i wish i could pull off the same look but sadly, i look like i have a blackeye haha) really pretty nikki :D

  11. I like the look but I don't think I can pull this off T_T I tried it before and it was so messy on my skin i just have to remove it. It looks pretty on you too. If I have a fairer complexion I would surely do this look :D

    Ate Nikki, I suggest that you buy fasio make up remover! :D it's only 275 php hehe. very cheap and it removes fasio mascara well without plucking lashes hehe.

  12. Cris, lol thanks for liking the name! :) and thanks for commenting on this look!

    Catherine, the LM quad is really pretty and pigmented, I'm just not sure why I haven't been using it much :D

    Paint Me Gorgeous, awww I can't pull off blue too unless I choose the right color, so I do believe there are some shades of blues that would look wonderful on you! :)

  13. Audrie, awww hahahahha I'm glad you liked this look!

    Aika, lol corny no? hahahha

    Paula, hehehe thanks

  14. Donnarence, I really love this mineral color from MM mineral :) thanks for liking my brows, I used to hate it because it's too full! LOL

    Khymm, yes you can! :D Do practice more pa! That's how I felt the first time I used dark e/s!

  15. Steph, hey!!! cheesy but cute title! HAHHAHAH I'm sure you can pull off a dark look! :) This isn't dark dark, but there's an intensity, if I go darker, I'll look dirty too :)

    Gia, I'll probably give Fasio a try, but I have to finish up what I'm currently using! :) thanks for the suggestion

  16. omggg another favorite look!
    I love the titles you give your looks hehe. They remind me of the names of the nail polishes.

  17. Wow! Sexy, yet sophisticated - I would love to try this out! You are right - it is perfect for day and night, and I love how you left the lips with a subtle shade so it isn't too 'done up', yet your features are very nicely accentuated. Must try!!

  18. SO NICE!! i find this look sexy! hahas. Teal I Met You... reminds me of O.P.I~ ^^ cute name!

  19. aww teal i met you! clever! you look great in blues, nikki!

  20. Teal has got to be one of my fave e/s color!!! I love this loooooook!

  21. Kasumi , hmm, I never thought about the names of nail polish, but yeah, could be :) Thanks for the comment sweetie!!

    Meghann, thank sweetie! I'm glad you like this look I've created!

    miRaCLe, wow...really the name of a polish from OPI? I never thought of that thanks for letting me know! I'm glad you like this look!

  22. Lily, thanks girl!

    ♥Leigh♥, that's one shade of blue I can wear, I find it quite hard to wear some other shades of blues :)

  23. Yowza! You look HAWWTTTT! You did a great job blending all the colors! Who says asians can't wear blue? You pull it off so well ;) Besitos!

  48. Hi Nikki,

    I have been reading your blog for a little bit but this is my first time commenting. I just had to say that I LOVE this look on you, especially the lip color! It seems a bit more pale than usual and it really suits you!

    The eye makeup is also really, really beautiful. Thank you for including charts about the color placement, that is really helpful.

    Thanks for the good work! I love how cheery and happy you are, it always puts a smile on my face to read your blog.
