FOTD: A Pop of Teal

 brown and teal eye makeup

I just really love teal eyeshadow. However, I like using it in moderation. Pairing a nice teal with an easy-to-wear brown is kind of a go-to for me, plus I love how it looks with my glasses.

For this look I used my Bon Voyage Palette from The Balm. They have some of the best eyeshadows I've used. I'll be doing a blog post to show you swatches of the shadows in the palette, but trust doesn't disappoint. It's just lovely; the perfect combo of neutrals and colors. On my lips I'm wearing Blushing Wine Lip Lacquer from Senna Cosmetics (over my trusty Ulta lipliner in Flesh). Lip Lacquers are my absolute favorite!
