The fourth look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Teal and Brown Flying Hummingbird.  There are so many different shades in this bird’s colour scheme – teal, green, bright blue, bright purple, brown, glints of black and white – which I thought would make for a really interesting look.  The look was a challenge for me, as it’s been a while since I’ve attempted to combine such a wide range of colours all just on my eyes! I really like how it turned out and think it is one of my favourite looks in the series.

You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

The Bird Series includes looks based around different types of birds and their colour schemes.  You can read more about the series and view posts here.

Tip: I used a wide variety of eyeshadow singles and shades from palettes for this look, as there were so many different colours to combine together.  You can read more about the shades I used below in the ‘Products’ section.

I recently posted this look on my Instagram page (you can find me on @makeupbysairalee) and thought I would follow-up with a ‘how to’ post here.

I purchased the Kat Von D Metal Matte Palette when it came out in the UK last year and have been really enjoying using it to create different types of looks.  I really felt like doing something different and so came up with this teal and gold highlight effect combination.  I really like how it turned out – it’s softly smokey with the eyes open and then you get a real flash of colour when the eyes open and close.
