Tea-Stained Eyes Beauty by watereverysunday
Did you have your cup of tea today? Whether you have one or not, how about some Tea-Stained Eyes? Inspired by Altuzarra Spring Summer 2019 Collection!
Actually this particular runway beauty looks was intended for tangerine or peach eyes and cheeks since the looks were made for next spring/summer collection. However, it is quite appropriate for now and for autumn as peach/ruddy colors basically fall under same color family, only differ in the the light/dark shade spectrum .
In fact, tea stained eyes makeup looks using bronzers and blushes were pretty popular back in A/W 2016 on many runways. So if you have peach or ruddy color bronzers, blushes and eye shadows, you are game! Even if your colors are somewhat darker than the ideals, you can still blend them up to lighter shades with your foundation or creamy eyeshadow base. This is really a minimal effort makeup but cool looking, certainly appropriate as everyday wear.
In the Altuzarra S/S 2019 runway look, skin was prepared fresh, only using concealers. Then healthy peach/ruddy color was added to the cheeks and the same color was applied to the eyes. Hairs were neatly and organically pulled back at the crown and side by finger combing and using wet pomade.

Pretty, ruddy, rosy healthy flushed face.... Beautiful! Keep the eyeliners in soft brown or skip all together.
When applying colors to the eyes and cheeks, make them look like stained, using fingers and a brush to blur and soften the edges. Remember, the key point of this makeup is stained and peachy, flushed look.
So how to get this look?

For more flushed look (Left Photo Below), apply color over your high cheek bones side ways.
For healthy and a bit of dimension (Right Photo Below), sweep colors from center of cheek bones to side and up. As you all know, subtle coloring with much intense shade than the eyes are recommended.

Use same color family lipstick as the eyes to the lips. Creamy and semi matte look would be ideal, not glossy.
Creamy lip and cheek stains are perfect for this look. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge is such a classic in its own category and is also one of my favorite purse stuffers of all time. Not only on lips or cheeks, technically it work on eyes, too!
