Today was the day for the peacock and I am using the following items:
I wanted to some eye looks this week as I am relatively free and really excited about trying out my eyeshadows.I decided to choose birds as my inspiration........umm I dunno why :P I like birds and when Nisha said to do an EOTD for the Faces I Shine Quad, this was what struck me :)
- My Faces I-Shine Quad #04 (Reviewed Here) (You can use any 3 blue eyeshadows with shimmer)
- Coastal Scents 88 Original Eyeshadow Palette
- Assorted brushes
- Maybelline Colossal Kajal
- Rimmel Extra Wow Lash Mascara
I will be doing this look in a horizontal gradient. So lets get started.
Step 1: Prep and Prime your eyelids. I have skipped the primer and only used a compact underneath in order to show you the vibrancy of the quad's colors.
Step 2: Place the lightest of your blues in the inner corner in a triangular shape.
Step 3: Place a medium blue or green in the center.
Step 4: Place the darkest blue in the outer corner of the eye in a triangular shape.
Step 5: Blend where 2 colors meet.Be careful that each color can still be seen :)
Step 6: Place your black shadow in the crease and extend it so that it touches the outer corner of your eye. Blend just a leeeeeeeetle bit lower into the lid.
Step 7: Place your dark blue shade across half of your lower eyelash.
Step 8: Add the highlighter shade on your brow-bone and fill in your eyebrows.Apply eyeliner and mascara.
At this point it should look like this
Step 9: And you're all done! :)
So how do you like it?
