'Peacock' Inspired Look

I'm so late with this post, but I really wanted to share it on here. A few weeks ago the theme for the makeup tag, hosted on Aqeela's blog, was peacock inspired. It turned out to be one of the most creative and diverse weeks yet. Click here to check out what the other girls came up with.

But here is my look...


Picture heavy I know, sorry! What do you think of my look? This took a lot of blending and applying shimmer eyeshadows over strong bases.

Here is everything I used.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser, Benefit Boi-ing Concealer, Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation, MUA Pro Brow Kit

Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara, Inglot Matte Eyeliner Gel #77, The Body Shop Eye Shimmers #07 & #08, Maybelline Colour Tattoo #50 Edgy Emerald, MUA 'Poptastic' Eyeshadow Palette, The Body Shop Eye Colour #31, Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil 'Ransom'

Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights 'Tease', MAC Mineralize Skin Finish 'Soft & Gentle', Illamaqua Cream Blusher 'Promise', Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss 'Opulent', Australis Show Stopper Gloss Stick 'Fireworks'

WOW, that was a lot and actually looks quite over the top now that it's in front of me, in black and white! But oh well, I like to experiment. To create the ombre' effect on the lips, I used the shimmer eyeshadows and blended them lightly into my lipstick. 

I really hope you like my look! Let me know what you think in the comments below, it would be much appreciated.
