Peacock Masquerade

Hey Guys & Dolls! Today I’m sharing a fantastic Peacock inspired mask- PERFECT for Halloween. This would be great to do for a party or masquerade ball- you’ll be the belle of the ball! It’s simple to make this look pulled together with one or two tasteful peacock accessories, and your sexiest LBD- My advice is to not go too flashy with your other accessories, just stick to a single-color dress (though black and teal color-black dress would also be PERFECTION! I tried to show pretty much the whole process, but much of the continued application of color and blending had to be edited out for time (trust me, the original cut was not entertaining to watch). Just keep adding and blending until you achieve the desired look- I recommend doing a test before you do this makeup to wear out.  Get Ready to strut your stuff! Below are more pictures, a video tutorial, and a list of what I used so you can recreate this striking mask!

    This is FABULOUS!!! I am going to try it for Halloween/My Birthday/Rocky Horror. Haha. I even have a good majority of the shadows. I hope mine looks even half as fab! I’ll probably have to practice a billion times.

      no, that’s not it. Sadly the “Angel Face palette” was discontinued. Try getting the ELD eye transformer palette. I wanna see how your version turns out!
