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.

I’m still learning the new camera, so the full face shots didn’t turn out that well.

      I do like the nude peacock. It is def more subdue that your usual looks. However, it still has enough pop to make it interesting.

      How fun to get a new camera!

      You have really pretty eyes; especially shapewise. I also like the twist you put on the peacock: almost like peacock with a twist of peahen, too.

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I didn’t even think about how the peahen is more subdued by comparison.

    • LAURIE

      That is just so pretty! I love the way the peacock brights play so well with the metallic neutrals! Gives me some interesting ideas to try out with my Silk Naturals shadows. Thank you!,

      I really like the colour placement on this! I’m just learning about where and how to place colours on my eyes :) this might be a good way for me to introducce a bit of colour into my neutral work looks… Hmmm… :)

      • Phyrra

        Definitely give it a whirl! You can choose to do just one color too, instead of several :)
