How To: Bright Teal Winged Liner with JK Jemma Kidd

By Kaitlyn Dreyling / March 27, 2012

When Target reached out to me to create a beauty look based around their "Color Changes Everything" campaign, I was immediately on board. I ditched my boring winter neutrals for something a lot more fresh and fun for spring. At first I wanted to do pastels, but I ended up falling for the JK Jemma Kidd I-Tech Liquid Liner in Covert, an electric turquoise. Here's how I created my bright-eyed look!

Step 1: Creating the Perfect Foundation

To make sure my complexion was smooth and even, I started off with the JK Jemma Kidd Pro Finish Moisture Tint SFP 20 in 01 Fair. I blended it all over my face with my fingers. Next, I used the color correcting concealers in the JK Jemma Kidd Backstage Makeup Kit under my eyes and around my nose. Lastly, I gave myself a little glow with the highlighter in Backstage Makeup Kit down the bridge of my nose, on my cheekbones and under my brows.

Step 2: Eyeshadow Base

First, I brushed the lightest eyeshadow in the Backstage Makeup Kit all over my entire lid. Then I sculpted my eye with the taupe shade in the JK Jemma Kidd On Location Kit In The Spotlight.

Step 3: Creating a Blue Smoky Eye

 

Next, I wanted to create a nice blue smoky eye to complement the bright teal liquid liner. I started by lining my eyes with the JK Jemma Kidd I-conic Eyes Pencil Liner in Pin Up. Then I layered it with the shimmering blue eyeshadow in the On Location Kit In The Spotlight palette to create the blue smoky eye.

Step 4: Bright Winged Liner

 

For the bold pop of spring color, I used the JK Jemma Kidd I-Tech Liquid Liner in Covert to create a neon cat eye. The highly pigmented liner glided on smooth and created a crisp (and completely smudge-proof) winged look.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

 

I gave myself a rosy flush using the light pink blush from the Backstage Makeup Kit, and colored my pout with a soft wash of coral color using the JK Jemma Kidd Air Kiss Shine Lip Gloss in Work It.

 

The bright blue cat eye is a colorful twist on a feminine classic. I love the bright turquoise color, and it's right on trend for spring. Plus, my colorful nails were created using Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Mod About You, which I also got at Target. How will you wear colorful makeup for spring?
