Peacock Inspired Makeup Tutorial

So today I’m bringing you an older tutorial I did while on my hiatus (which should explain why my hair is blue and green) of a bright peacock inspired tutorial using Colorpop shadows. Ironically enough, the only bright colors from colorpop I own are the two I used, but I really do love them.

I didn’t actually go into this tutorial with a concrete plan, but I do absolutely love how bright this makeup turned out!

Tips for a better, Brighter Peacock Inspired Makeup:

  1. Moisturize before hand. I can not stress how important skin care and skin prep is when it comes to makeup application. Hydrate your skin so it doesn’t steal the moisture from your foundation.
  2. Lay down a base color. Granted, mine did work for both a base and almost like a transition color. When you work with darker colors, it helps to keep them from skipping or sticking too much in one spot.
  3. Use brushes made of different materials. In this one in particular, natural hair brushes didn’t work that great for packing on color. Go for a synthetic one instead. The same works in reverse.
  4. Start with a little, and build up. The worst thing you could do is start with a whole bunch of eyeshadow, try to blend it out, and realize you used too much. Adding a little is so much easier than trying to take away what’s there.

    1. Thanks so much! I like that with this look you can time it up or down depending on skill and comfort level. So if anything you could always switch the black out for a brown shade and it’s still work 😀.

    1. I actually do have a video for it. I like having both because sometimes still pictures aren’t enough of a how to. This one is definitely good if you want to step out of the box.

    1. Definitely try it out. The best time to experiment with your Makeup or even your look is right before you wash it off. You get some play time in, and if you dont like the outcome you can wash it off and try again tomorrow.

  1. I love your peacock eyes! That makeup is stunning and looks great on you. I wonder if my face would be able to pull something like that off.

  2. You look so lovely with this make up on! i’ve been loving to change my style a little bit this day, and this look looks perfect to try

    1. Lol yeah, aomtimes I use more products, sometimes less but I really don’t apply too much of anything to my face. It really just depends on what look I’m going for, and what I need to achieve it.

  3. I am not much of a make up person, but I think this peacock inspired make up looks good on you. I may be past that age to pull off something like this but I will share your post with my daughter and my niece. I know they’ll waste no time experimenting with this tutorial.

  4. This is perfect for music festivals during the season or in summer! I love the colors and it’s really beautiful.

  5. This is my kind of make up look that I would do everyday of the week and love all of the colours together. I will have to give it a try the next time I do my make up.

  6. I love this tutorial . The green sheen from the metallic eye shadow is lustrous. It really suits your colouring. The hair is amazing and the rich jewel colours you have used indeed remind me of the beautiful plumage of that amazing bird …The Peacock! Well done!
