The Deep Truth about...

Hey!! Hope everyones having a good week. Today I bring you the first in my animal inspired series. When we went to Chester Zoo we saw some Indian Blue peacocks and they were beautiful. As much as the colours were stunning I was mostly inspired by the plummage (think thats the right term :S) on their heads. It reminded me of a particular style of lash that I love. I've had my eye on them for a while now but haven't been able to find any, but on my way home I nipped into Boots and there they were!! It's like it was meant to be :D Now I've attempted many a Peacock look in the past and they haven't really been all that. This time I limited the colours mostly to the blues as I wanted the lashes to be the focus and I think it turned out much better than the ones I've done before. I Love Love Love the lashes (even tho I did break one).

Heres my inspiration pic

And heres the look I created

The greens and Teals showed up a little better on this one

I used a mixture of products from Mac, Ben Nye and Sleek. Starting at the inner corner I used:
Mac Pigment in Golden Olive blended into Mac Pigment in Teal. This was blended into Ben Nye Pigment in Cosmic Blue which was in turn blended into a Mac Eye Shadow in Deep Truth (this is my new favourite thing btw :D ) I used the Dark Blue from the Sleek Bohemian Palette to darken the Outer V and a Highlight from the Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette (I dont really like the highlight I chose and would change this to do the look again). I lined my upper lash line and outer water line with Mac Blacktrack Fluid Line, and my inner water line with Mac Pearlglide Intense Liner in Undercurrent.

The eyelashes are the new Girls Aloud Festival range from Eyelure lol. It always makes me laugh when people ask me what lashes I use and I say Girls Aloud, it makes me sound like a crazy groupie...I'm not, I just really like the lashes. I loved the Cheryl and Nadine designs from the last range they brought out and I'm already wanting more from the Festival range. The ones I used today are Kimberly.

Hope you like the look. Feel free to leave a comment or any suggestions you might have :D
I'm off now to reward myself with cake!! Mmmmmm....
