Simple Pop of Turquoise Eye Makeup Tutorial !

in Eye Makeup Looks, Makeup Tutorials



For the last few weeks, Iv been at my mums house and quite honestly I think she is a bit fed up of me . (Remember my mom- woman with one lipstick and one eyeliner? She keeps finding my stuff strewn about here and there and that does not sit well with her OCD about cleanliness) . The one person who is happy to see me around is my maid, she very cutely tells me how the house is so empty without me , she comments on all my tutorials (kal vaala achha tha!…or “yeh vala color acha lag raha hai”) and today as she was cleaning up the dresser- she found my turquoise eyeliner which I thought I shall put to good use. (PS: My maid is super cute- she actually gave me a laughing buddha as a gift when I got married, and she has a crush on the boy. She thinks he is ‘sundar’.)

Anyhooo, here is what you need to go poppity pop with turquoise

- Turquoise eyeliner (Im using one I cannot talk about for now . If i tell you, id have to kill you. Its a top secret launch shh)

- Bronze eyeshadow (Im using my eternal favourite mac bronze) , Gold eyeshadow is optionl (Mac woodwinked)

- Black kajal (maybelline collosal)



Step 1:  Apply black kohl on your upper lid.

Step 2: Smudge. If yours is a non smudgy kohl you can use a cotton bud in vaseline to smudge

Step 3: Apply bronze eyeshadow over the black. You cant tell in the photos but this gives it depth.

Step 4: Extend bronze eyeshadow till across your lid

Step 5: Blend

Step 6: Apply turquoise eyeliner

Step 7: If you have turquoise eyeshadow use that to go over your eyeliner.

Step 8: Add a bright gold eyeshadow in your inner corner

Step 9: Mascara

Its easy, breezy and perfect for spring ! You know what else its perfect for? If you wear glasses, this is a great look for you. Actually makeup with glasses post is coming up soon!

Lipstick: Mac Mocha

Blush : Illamasqua Sleek (Cannot be seen)

Easy and pretty :) Your maid sounds so cute :) Before marriage when I used to stay with a bunch of girls, the maid used to have a gala time commenting and laughing at our futile attempts at makeup. The best was her comment on smokey eye, chulha jalaya kya…LOL

I love that pop of colour.. I use my colour eyeshadows as liners at times..
Maids are very cute.. Our earlier maid would take my mom’s bindi and would take a good 5 minutes admiring herself infront of the mirror :p

Hi Mehak, I wear glasses n m sure this look would look great; gonna try soon. I do have a Q though. My eyelids r oily n towards end of day I get bit of an itching in inner corners even if m not wearing my usual kajal/eyeliner. What base would u recommend for me to wear over my eyes before I do a basic makeup? I do apply eye gel regularly twice a day. Thanks!


mehak March 19, 2014 at 10:02 am

Hi Kamal,
mac paint pots are actually awesome for controlling oil- theyr my fav primers.

Rachna March 19, 2014 at 5:30 am
