Ah teal…there aren’t many colors I don’t like, but teals hold a special place. Estee Lauder’s Ultra Marine is a ‘stop your heart’ blue-based teal. It is a crime that it’s limited edition.

I used a teal base to get this color to show up better on camera, but it isn’t necessary for this eye shadow. It is very pigmented. The Aqua Cream is similar in color, but would have to be layered to get to the intensity of this shadow. I applied the base with a synthetic brush on my entire lid and blended lightly up to my crease. I used a skin-tone shade to blend out the edge of the Aqua Cream. I used a wet (Mac’s Fix+) synthetic shader brush (Mac 242) to apply Ultra Marine on top of the base. I ran both the base and shadow onto my lower lash line.
Using the other side of the Mac 242, I put Cyber Ice onto the inner corner and blended it over. (This shade created a lot of fallout, so a smaller brush than a Mac 242 would’ve been a better tool.) With a blending brush, I put Saddle into my crease, concentrating the color on the outer corner. Using a crease brush (Louise Young LY14), I place a black shadow onto my outer corner, concentrating the color near the lash line. I blended this shade up using the same blending brush.
Mac’s Feline liner is very black and smudges with or without your help. I decided to give it a hand and smudged along my upper and lower lash line using a small smudging brush (SigmaE21). For whatever reason, I grabbed a purple liner for my lower water line. A bright green would’ve looked nice too.
