Spring Peacock Look

31 Mar

Inspired by the vibrant turquoise, green, and purple of a peacock, this trendy makeup look captures the colors of spring.

Reminiscent of bright, soft feathers, we created a makeup look that captures the popular colors this spring, accentuating the eyes in rainbow-esque style that will add a dazzling touch of spring to your makeup style. To complete the look, we paired the bold eyes with luscious red lips, another look inspired by the warm, springtime weather.

For Eyes

Step 1: Start by sweeping an iridescent turquoise shadow across your eyelid, forming a wing on the end that aligns with the end of your eyebrow. We used Chasm by Illamasqua.

Step 2: Using a small makeup brush, blend a shimmery yellow eyeshadow along the inner corner of your eye and the bottom lash line. We love Marvel by Illamasqua.

Step 3: Brush a thin line of purple eye shadow atop the green shade starting at the inner corner of your eye and ending at the wing. We love Sephora collection eyeshadow in Gorgeous pink.

Step 4: Fill in the remaining portion of your eyelid with a shimmery pink eyeshadow; we used the adjoining pink in the previous shadow. The layering of shadow should create a nice rainbow effect on your eye.

Step 5: We finish the look with some glamorous false eyelashes. Spread a thin layer of eyelash glue along the false lashes and press along your lash line. We used Fabulous Eyelashes in Guilty Please by NYX.

For Lips and Cheeks

Step 6: Using a large blush brush, blend a peach colored blush on your cheek bones, sweeping the color up to your temples. We used Nars blush in Amour.

Step 7: To complete the look, apply bright red lipstick. We used Rimmel London’s long-lasting lipstick in temptation.
