Moll’s Beauty Bag: Summer Lovin’ Turquoise Eye Liner

LOVE THIS! Turquoise Eyeliner

LOVE IT NOW BECAUSE: It’s the ultimate summer accessory – a beautiful jewel tone to play up your eye color, and complement your sun-kissed skin tone, all at the same time!

I’m summering out here in Malibu at the moment, and that gorgeous ocean is influencing everything from my style to my mood to my home decor to my…eyeliner. That’s right! I am IN LOVE with ocean-hued turquoise eyeliner right now, because it makes such a statement, while still being soft and sexy. Another bonus, it really compliments that sun-kissed skin!

Turquoise all around. For a true summertime look, line both the upper and lower lash lines (and inner rims) with a turquoise eye liner. It’s definitely a statement, but such a stunning statement to make!

Go classic…with a twist. If it makes you a little nervous to go all-out turquoise, consider pairing the pretty color with a winged eyeliner on top. Just draw your winged liner, and trace the top of the line with your turquoise eye liner.

Bottoms only. If you’re still not feeling even that bold, consider just lining the bottom lash line and inner rim, with a pop of color, without the full commitment. You can do no eyeliner on top at all, or pair with a black winged liner.

Pair with a delicate lip. If you are going with a bold turquoise eyeliner this summer, I highly recommend pairing it with either a soft baby pink or a nude. This way, your eye color really pops, without a clashing lip color, distracting from its impact.

…Having said that. If you’re feeling a little bolder, you can also pair a turquoise-rimmed eye with a hot shade of fuchsia or coral, for a major “wow” factor that just screams summer fun!

My shade of the moment. Right now, I’m addicted to Givenchy Color Kajal in Turquoise Imagination ($26). I love lining my inner rims with a black pencil, and then smudging the turquoise liner over it, for a “pop” of color.

Moll’s Bag of Tricks: To soften the turquoise impact, you can also consider lining the inner rims with turquoise and then tracing the line with a golden bronze shadow. You still get the color, with a side order of sun-kissed subtlety.
