Face of The Day – Tenacious Teal + Audacious Asphalt

As promised, here’s a FOTD using ‘Tenacious Teal’ & “Audacious Asphalt’ from the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow range. The colors are indeed smooth and pigmented, as i had expected from the swatches. Just a reminder, you have to be quick to work with this product before it sets so do have your brushes within reach for blending. I have a more detailed review here, if you need more information.

Tenacious Teal, as you would have guessed from its name, is a very vibrant and bright color on its own. And one might be afraid to wear it for fear of it being too strong a color (esp for those of you who always reach out for neutrals). But as you will see from my pictures below, it is easy to create a more wearable, everyday look without looking over the top. The color is very much buildable, so if strong and vibrant is what you’re going for, that’s easy to achieve too. Here, i used Tenacious Teal as the base color and then used Audacious Asphalt for blending into the crease for some depth and a smokey effect.

Please excuse the poor lighting, i had to take these pictures at night and this was the best i could manage with fluorescent light. Natural lighting is always better able to bring out the true colors, but this shouldn’t be too far off. 🙂 Thanks for looking!
