Post by Upasana,
Hii everyone ! This eye makeup is inspired by the beautiful colors of peacock. The look is quite intense and extreme as it is a smokey look with various shades of dark blue , light green , silver and lots and lots of blending ! I’m doing it on one of my friend. So let’s start.
Step 1:- Apply gel eyeliner on eyelid:-
Prepare your eye lid with some primer, use urban decay primer potion or nyx eyeshadow base. Then use a black gel eyeliner to cover your eyelid, don’t make any particular shape. I’m using here Maybelline EyeStudio Lasting drama Gel eyeliner in blackest black . After applying it with a flat shader brush start blending it with a fluffy brush and slowly bringing the gel upwards towards the crease of the eye. Like this :-
- Step 2:- Apply a dark navy blue color :-
After blending the gel eye liner, pat some dark navy blue color eye shadow onto your eyelid close enough to your eyelashes and blend it using a pencil brush or you can use an angular eye brush. The eye shadow I’m using is Miss Claire Professional eye shadow palette no. 06 (darkest blue). You can either choose a matte dark blue color also. After blending it softly , choose a peacocky green color and place it right in the center of your eyelid (just over the blue). Like this :-
- Step 3:- Place cosmetic glitter and line your eyes :-
Now placing a cosmetic glitter is totally optional and up to you, if your comfortable with it then use some cosmetic glue and apply it right on top of the green and then using a flat eye brush to pick some glitter and set it right on the place where we applied cosmetic glue. You just have to place it there don’t smudge it. Doing so would make all the glitter fall off. I’m using a local cosmetic glitter here. Now line your eyes with a black eyeliner and advance it out making a wing. Similarly fill in your waterline with black kohl/gel eyeliner whatever suits you. You might also want to fill it in with a white kohl pencil to add a drama , for this do line your bottom eyelashes with a black eyeliner. Like this:-
Step 4:- Highlight your brow bone and apply mascara :-
After lining your eye , highlight your brow bone with a cool-toned highlighter , a highlighter or an eye shadow which has silver feel in it. I’m here using Avon’s Color trend stackable color (in daylight pearl) which was a limited edition and is discontinued. Pick up small amount of highlighter and using a soft small fluffy brush or simply using your finger tip run across your brow bone to add that highlight and life to your eyes. Don’t pick up too much product or else it might look hideous because we want a soft highlight. Use lots of mascara on your upper lashes as well as lower lashes. I’m using Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Express mascara. Fill in your eyebrows if you have gaps.
Peacocky Eye Makeup Tips
- Use white eye kohl pencil to fill in your waterline if you have small eyes.
- Skip the glitter part if you want to tone it down for a day look.
- Tone the whole look by reducing amount of product and practice well with the blending part.
- Use an artistic brush to line your eyes if you hate the small eyeliner wands, this decreases the direct contact of brush & reducing any mistakes + the artistic brush have long neck which are great enough to hold firmly
- Want to add a bit of drama ?? Try false eyelashes , pour small amount of eyelashes glue onto the back of your hand , hold the eyelash using a tweezer and sweep the ends of eyelash just over the glue ( don’t dip into it because we want a small amount of glue on eyelash just enough to make it bond with our real lashes) and place it right onto your real eyelashes sticking the corners of false eyelashes with your real ones. Let them dry for 10-12 seconds and after that if you see some white dried glue just use some black eyeliner to cover them up.
- Pop on some under eye concealer after you’re done with the whole eye look to brighten the eyes.
