Costume Makeup: Peacock Eye Tutorial

I know it's been forever since my last post and I really have to apologize for that.  I haven't been away on purpose, it's just that I'm taking the GMAT in less than one month and it is officially crunch time. Between studying, getting my applications in order, and working a full-time job, it's been hard to find the time to do what I love most: blog! This weekend I went to my parents house in Wellesley for some quiet study time.  I woke up at 9 on Saturday prepared to be very productive, but to my frustration the boys who live in the apartment above me had decided either to throw a party or rearrange all of their furniture.  At first I couldn't tell which it was, though when I heard one of them hurl accusations of improper "beer etiquette" at the other I knew there was no point in staying in the city.  While home I did manage to get some studying done, as well as I had the chance to edit the video tutorial I filmed for HALLOWEEN - crazy how a few weeks can go by so fast.  It's funny though because in the first part of the video I'm talking about how you are all probably going to get dressed up for the weekend and go to awesome parties and maybe you can use my tutorial if you didn't have any other costume ideas...but of course now it's two weeks past Halloween so none of that matters!

This Halloween my friends and I went to the Pretty Lights concert at the TD Garden, in full costume of course.  My friend Paoro and I dressed up as birds together while the boys went as the infamous Con Bro Chill lax bros.  She was a flamingo (she even wrapped her knee in a little brace because flamingoes have bad knees - how funny is that!) and I was a peacock, mainly because as soon as she suggested it all I could think about was how much fun my eye makeup was going to be.  Despite the fact that I am not a trained makeup artist, I simply love learning about makeup - application techniques, new product lines, skincare regimens, the whole 9 yards.  I have quite a collection going at this point and was so excited to have the chance to finally use some of the colors in my kit that I can never wear during the day, lest the world think I put my face on in the dark.

While  Halloween is indeed over and you may find this tutorial completely useless, it was a really fun makeup to do and who's to say you won't find another excuse to dress like an exotic bird in the future? So without further ado, I present to you my take on a colorful peacock eye makeup - I hope you like it!
