Peacock Dream


So, here's yet another makeup look I created using some of the items featured in my NYX and Wet n' Wild Haul. I call this look Peacock Dream because it reminds me of some of the vibrant colors you might see on a peacock. To see the full look and how I achieved it, step inside...

Step 1. After priming my lids with Too Faced Shadow Insurance, I applied some of the shimmery hot pink color from the Wet n' Wild Spoiled Brat palette to the area right above the crease.

Step 2: Next, I applied NYX's Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk to my lids. This really helps the colors pop!

Step 3: After busting out my new I Dream of Greenie palette by Wet n' Wild, I used an all over shadow brush to apply the lime green color labeled "Eyelid" all over my lids.

Step 4: Next, I used an angled eye shadow brush to apply the black shimmery color from the Spoiled Brat palette (see step 1 above) to the outer v. I dragged some of the color into the crease as well.

Step 5: With a crease brush, I swept the following dark blue shadow from the All I've Ever Wanted Box into my crease.

Step 6: To complete the eyeshadow look, I used a small shadow brush to apply white eye shadow along the brow bone as a highlight. Eyeliner and mascara followed.

Step 7: After finishing my face per the usual foundation and highlight routine, I then applied Shiva by NYX to my lips.
