If you’re looking to add a pop of color to your makeup routine, teal is the color to do it. Whether it’s a slight accent underneath the eye, a punchy blue-green wing or a bold lip, it’s shade that’s fun and unexpected. Not only does it instantly elevate and add some spark to your typical makeup look, teal is definitely a universally great shade for anyone, no matter your skin tone. Ahead, find the coolest teal products to add to your makeup stash this spring.
If teal feels extra bold for you, try smoking it out on your lower lash line for a more approachable look. We love Lightyear and Galaxy from the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette for this — mix them together or use them alone for a bright liner pop.
NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Aqua Shimmer is another gorgeous teal addition to your eye makeup stash. The pigmentation of this pencil is incredibly vibrant, and it glides on easily, whether you’re simply lining your lash line or creating a wing.
If you want to bring teal down to your fingertips, Essie Garden Variety will be your favorite mani color this spring. It’s super creamy, quite head-turning and will add just the right amount of blue-green to any beauty look.
For a hint of all over teal shimmer, use Stila Shimmer & Glow in Freedom wherever on your face you desire. Even though this is traditionally meant for your lids, we recommend tapping this onto your cheekbones for an ultra-cool highlight or onto your lips for the perfect blue-green pout.
