When looking for an Exotic Bird to be inspired by for Jacqueline’s Makeup Mondays, I ran across this quetzal bird on Pinterest. These birds are so cute and vibrant. They have feathers of bright green, turquoise and red.
Here I’m wearing my lovely ring from Cristina of Let Them Have Polish.
How to achieve the Quetzalcoatl Bird Look:
I decided that blackened red lips would work to help represent the red feathers. I love being inspired by nature! This was such a fun challenge.
What do you think of the look?

The lips are stellar and steal the show here. I love the dramatic feel to this and the colors you used.
WendiThroatPunchGirven Thank you Wendi! <3
This is such a stunning look. And I’m absolutely in love with the lips! The ring is perfect with the lips too
UneLuneBleue Yay thanks I thought it would be a nice touch.
I love the lips, too! I am pretty sure I wore that same lip tar to work once and it bled all over the place and I was embarassed. I think I have a bit to learn about lip tars, haha.I don’t think I knew Kush was that quite that color…it’s pretty. I like the waterline liners, too. I’m pretty sure I have Flipside…I may need to try that!
misfitgirlie Ok, so Mandy from Prettymaking taught me the lip tar trick. I was using WAY too much. Start with the tiniest amount you can get out, like the size of a pin head, and work that on your lips. It goes and goes, as you apply a very thin layer.
I do adore the colors that you used. They are gorgeous and so vibrant! And the lips look great.
Wow you look absolutely amazing! It reminds me of some sort of tribal Goddess from a cartoon. And the liner is awesome once again!
Hands down, your best look yet. And the lip colour *____*
That is an amazing and dramatic look. It really does remind me of birds’ wings. I wonder if I could get away with that as a daytime look at work…
I love the dramatic looks like this and the lips are just gorgeous!
Exotic – looks really nice on you! But then again what doesn’t – you’re very fortunate for that!
I love the look you are so talented, those colors are gorgeous and make your eyes look like emeralds. Thank you awesome tutorial
Phyrra you’ve captured the Quetzal wonderfully in this look. Love the lips, they truly mimic the red breast of the Quetzal. Beauty!!
Great job on the ombre lips! I like the shapes you used for your eyeliner and shadow.
