Atomic Seas

Happy Wednesday! 
I know many of you don't watch and don't care, but the NFL officially kicks off their season tonight! Woo! I prefer college football to pro, but i'll take any football I can get after being deprived from it all spring and summer ;P

Today I have another look for you using some Beauty From the Earth shadows. I'm not that fond of it, but I figured I'd post it anyway :/

(prior to eyeliner on upper lid)

' 7 Seas' & Atomic Teal'

I used:
Too Faced's Shadow Insurance
BFTE '7 Seas' on lid
BFTE 'Atomic Teal' in outer corners/crease
UD's 'Zephyr' as highlight
Covergirl liquid eyeliner in black
Too Faced's Lashgasm mascara

 '7 Seas' is a sea-green matte that leans words a uber bright teal. 'Atomic Teal' is a shimmery, blacked teal. Both are loose shadows. 

I don't usually use matte shadows, and this look reminded me why. My past experience with BFTE shadows have all been shimmers and they've been AWESOME, but I had issues with blending and balding with this matte. It's a vivid, gorgeous color- but just not the type of shadow I prefer to use. As a result, the look didn't blend well at all and it came off very amateur-ish, in my opinion :/

'7 Seas' is the ONLY shadow from BFTE I've tried that I didn't like, however. Their stuff is absolutely fantastic. You can get samples of both these shadows here for $2 or a full jay for about $6 or $6.50!


  1. Looooooooooove this look!!! A real turquoise splash! You did pretty good!

  2. i think its super bright and fun!

  3. I like it. I have been thinking of using more matte shadows but I've heard they're chalky and hard to blend (wtf the same is with polishes?!?). I like this look. I didn't notice any spots that needed more blending. I thought it was a mod/color blocking look. Anyway, I love these bright bold blues/greens on you. They make your eyes look amazing.

    1. lol, thanks!! and yeah it definitely felt chalky :/ Just not my thing. Glad I fooled you with teh blending issues, though! haha.

  4. I LOOOOOOOVE these colors on you!!! Especially the brighter blue. I can see why you might be hesitant though; mattes can be difficult to work with. But I love how it looks! ;D
    Oh well. But maybe you can find something similar that works better for you~
