Weekly Makeup Tag - Peacock

Last week I stumbled upon a weekly makeup tag that is hosted by the lovely Aqeela. If you haven't checked out her blog and don't know how her tag works, basically she does a post every Wednesday where she features a particular theme (this week was a peacock theme) and she features different interpretations of the theme from various bloggers. Then at the end of the post she states next week's theme. To be included, all you have to do is drop a comment and shoot her an email with your pictures of said theme. That's it. Totally open to anyone, which is really awesome.

Now I've been thinking of doing a peacock inspired look for a while, so this was a pretty good kick in the pants to get it done for you guys. I don't have a tutorial for this one, but the products used will be included at the end of the post.
Products Used: e.l.f. Essentials Eye Lid Primer in Sheer; Haight, Limelight and Skimp by Urban Decay; light shimmery blue, matte white, medium red/brown (for the brows) and a dark blue eyeshadow from the Sephora Collection LE Color Daze Blockbuster makeup palette; gold shimmer eyeshadow topcoat from the Sephora palette; gold cream eye liner from the Sephora palette; Sephora Collection Long Lasting 12HR Wear Eye Liner in Black; Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes!

I hope you all enjoyed this weeks makeup tag! I have every intention of doing Aqeela's tag every week for the foreseeable future, it's so much fun! The other girls involved are crazy talented and deserve some serious props for their looks.
Next week's theme is "ombre" which should be a ton of fun. And if you want to get involved or just check out the other girl's looks, make sure to check out Aqeela's tag post, again, click here.
I would love to hear what you guys think about this look, so make sure you drop a comment below! And if you like what you see, be sure to subscribe; it totally makes my day when I see new subscribers. Til next time!
