Demure Peacock

I was inspired by this pin for today’s look. I wish I’d actually looked at it closer again before I started playing with colors, but this is what I came up with. If you’re not already, follow me on Pinterest! […]

Nude Peacock

I decided to do another peacock look, but wanted to go for a different style than normal. I started out by applying my Too Faced Shadow Insurance.  Then with a fluffy brush I applied UD Verve widely in the crease/lower browbone. I used UD Darkhorse tightly in the lower crease with a pencil brush. I then blended the crease with a blender brush. On the outer half of the lid, towards the center, I took a tiny lid brush and applied UD Painkiller. On the outer corner of the lid with an angled eye shadow brush I applied UD Flash in a triangle shape, leaving a slight gap between Flash and Painkiller. I then applied UD Mildew inbetween Flash & Painkiller with another small lid brush and blended the edges a bit. Next I applied Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy to the inner half of the lid. I waited for it to get slightly tacky, then I applied Too Faced Nude Beam. I used UD liquid liner in Perversion along the upper lash line. Then I did my brows with the Revlon 104 Dark Blonde pencil. Finally, I used a small ecotools smudge brush to put MAC Vellum under the eyebrows and at the inner corners of the eye. I then used UD 24/7 pencil in Perversion along the outer 3/4 of the lower lash line, and 24/7 Midnight Cowboy along the inner 1/4. I topped off my lashes with a coat of Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume Mascara, then Flirt! It Curls Mascara. […]

Faerie Peacock

Today I put together a beautiful reader request of Faerie Glamour & Bustle. It turned into a gorgeous peacock look. I’d probably do a few things different, but not much, if I tried this again. It’s visually stunning in person. I started this look out differently than normal. While I’ll often use a white or skintone type shade on the crease and browbone to make it easier to blend colors, after I did that, I did sort of a swish ~ type of shape with Knight Divine. I wanted to have a slightly darker base color to blend Faerie Glamour and Bustle onto in the crease. I love the results. As far as Feline goes, it lasts on my upper lash line no problem. It does smudge a bit on my lower lash line, even with primer. HOWEVER, this is why I don’t put mascara on my lower lash line, because it smears there, too. I really like Feline on my upper lash line. I haven’t tried it on my waterline yet. NC15/NW20 is a bit darker/yellower than I expected, but if I blend it out with a brush, I like the results. Apparently, it can be used for a matte highlight anywhere on the face, too. […]

Dark Fae Look

This look was a reader request, inspired by art from Jasmine Becket-Griffith. I really think this is pretty and I LOVE the outer circle, which reminds me of a peacock feather. […]
