♕ Peacock Eyes ♕
{100 Days of Make Up ~ Day 29}

Today I'm going to start posting again some of the make up I created for the 100 Days of Make Up Challenge - I knew I said I wanted to write a blog post for each one, but I soon realized that it was pretty much a mission impossible. For two reasons: first, the huge amount of time needed to post one hundred different looks; second, I keep doing new looks almost every day or so - meaning that if I focus only on this "old" series I'd leave behind the newer ones. And so on.

I came to the conclusion that I needed to catch up quickly - so I did a massive selection, keeping just an handful of looks to post here. I really hope to go through them in a couple of months at most. 

Let's get started with today's look - as you can tell, inspired by a peacock feather!

I've always had a thing for peacock feathers, mainly because of the colour combination they features. Blue, teal, green... Mesmerizing *__* I've been wanting to do an inspired look for a while and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so. It was quite challenging because of the brown - you know I don't really like browns, I barely use them - but in the end it was sooo fun to make!

After applying my usual eyeprimer I started by applying a bright blue shade on the inner corners, blending it towards the lids, and I added a touch of silver (Frozen by NABLA Cosmetics) on the inner part. Right after that I applied a a petrol green (Babylon by NABLA), blending it into the blue; then I applied a bright green pigment (Jade Pearl by NYX Cosmetics), again blending it with the previous shade. This look was all about applying and blending backwards, to create a soft gradient with all the shades involved. Same stps on the lower lids too, and partially into the crease.  

Now the tricky part - for me. I chose a matte, deep brown pigment for the outer corner which I rarely use. I built the colour step by step, starting from the outer corner and going up into the crease and blending it out to create a soft V shape. I blended, and blended, and blended. Wax on, wax off. I used Narciso as transition colour, to adjust the blending when need and to create a smooth transition towards the eyebrows. On the brow bone I applied Antique White (both by NABLA, no need to tell).

I decided to go for a double eyeliner, so I first traced the gold line by using a gold pigment wet with Fix +, then the usual black line below. I'm such an eyeliner addicted XD
After that, I applied a black eyepencil on my waterline, added false lashes and applied mascara. My eyebrows here were done with Spiked, the Eyebrow pencil I used before I switched to Strut - a more appropriate shade for a redhead! 

I have no word to tell you how much I LOVED this look *_* I mean, seriously. One of my favourites ever, ever after months. And yes, even though it contains lots of brown XD I love the colour combination and the gradient and the blending and the double eyeliner... Well, I just love everything about this look XD
