Beauty Based On: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Inspiration // 1. Neutral Shadow // 2. Green Liquid Liner // 3. Green Eyeshadow // 4. Brown Liquid Liner // 5. Volumizing Mascara // 6. Red Lipstick

Beauty inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places, such as a few aisles away with the toys. Case in point: this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Action Figure that’s sure to be on every child’s wish list this year (maybe even ours). The plaything's vibrant hues are the same as the holiday's classic beauty color scheme, allowing you to try a range of looks from soft and subtle to bold and bright.

You can easily channel the Ninja Turtle's classic colors without overwhelming the face during the holidays. For something more subdued, dust a neutral shadow, reflective of the turtle’s shell, from the lash line to the brow bone before lining the top lash with a rich, green liquid liner. Swipe on a few coats of volumizing mascara, and channel Raphael’s signature color with a red lip for a look you can rock almost anywhere.

If you want a more striking eye look, you can apply a deep green eye shadow on the lid and blend it up into the crease. Give your lashes a little extra oomph by lining the top lash line with a brown liquid liner before swiping on a few coats of mascara. For a bit more balance, you can press the red lipstick onto the lip with your finger for a softer lipstain that will last for hours.

Now, this is what we call turtle power.
