Easy Halloween Makeup – Peacock
This look is all about blending an array of blues, purples, and gold to create a soft yet bold wash of color with depth and dimension. A high-quality blending brush, like the Glo Minerals Eye Blender Brush, is perfect for both applying paint and diffusing any harsh lines.
Start by applying a teal shade to your entire lid, like Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Magic. Next, apply Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in the shade Blue Hour, a shimmery midnight blue, to the outer V. Use Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Violet Eyes to define your crease.
Pick up Senna Metallic Eye Color in Fame, a brilliant gold, to add to the inner corners of your eyes. Bring the shade up into your crease for a bolder look, and blend it with the purple shade. To complete your eyeshadow, apply Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Magic to your lower lash line, mixing as you go to soften the color.
Now, you’ll add detail to your eyes reminiscent of intricate peacock feathers. Using a black liquid eyeliner pen, like Mirabella Marker Eyeliner, flick a series of smaller and larger lines from the outer corner of each eye to create a feathery texture. Then, use the liner to make rows of dots on the base of your lid up to your eyebrows. Top off your eyes with two coats of Youngblood Outrageous Lashes Mineral Lengthening Mascara in Blackout.
To complete your look, apply a deep purple lipstick, like Stila After Glow Lip Color in Vivid Violet. This shade contains florescent pigments that are black-light responsive, making it the perfect party option. Add peacock feathers to your hair or pick up fun accessories, like the gloves Candice is wearing, from your local costume shop, and you’re ready to strut your stuff this Halloween.
