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.

The third look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Robin. Robins have a really interesting mix of colours and tones – brown, deep burnished orange and white – and so I thought this would be a fun combination to try out.  I used a slightly more red-based shade to tie in with the stereotype of Robins being ‘red-breasted’, even though they seem to be more orange-based in real life.

The second look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Flamingo.  When I was browsing photos of flamingos online, I was struck by the variety in the colours of these birds.  The colour schemes seemed to range from cream, peach, coral, pink and vivid red.  I knew that flamingos could come in different colours but hadn’t realised there was quite so much diversity.  Nice to learn something new!

I chose to base my look around flamingos with white, cream, peach and coral-red feathers, along with black-ish beak tips (see photo below) For this look, I incorporated the white, cream, peach and coral-red on the lid and deep brown/black on the upper lashline.  I also used a bright peachy-coral on the lips to tie in with the bright coral red feathers.

The first look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the African Grey Parrot.  I’ve had exposure to this beautiful bird over the years and thought it would be a fun place to start the series.

The African Grey Parrot (see photo below) has a striking colour scheme of grey, white and black, with bright scarlet tail feathers at the back.  For this look, I incorporated the greys, white and red on the lid, along with black liner on the upper lashline.  I also used a soft red lipstick on the lips to mimic the vivid red tail feathers.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around VIOLET, the seventh colour in the rainbow.  For this look, I combined violet with orange, coral and copper to create a fun contrast of colours on the eyes.  I often wear purples with blues or pinks, so it was fun to try out a different combination.  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

Tip: I’m using the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette for all of the looks but you can substitute in eyeshadows from any brand.  The NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in ‘Brights’ is a great dupe for the Urban Decay Full Spectrum and cheaper (£16 instead of £43).  You can view the NYX Palette here.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around INDIGO, the sixth colour in the rainbow.  I was a little bit nervous about this colour, as I don’t normally wear dark, satin shades on my lid.  I like how it turned out, though, which shows it can be fun to experiment with different looks.  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around GREEN, the fourth colour in the rainbow.   I decided to combine the greens with dark indigo in the outer v for this look, as I usually veer more towards wearing greens with yellows.  I’m enjoying how this series is encouraging me to try out new colour combinations!  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around RED, the first colour in the rainbow.  I always gravitate towards yellows or oranges when using red eyeshadows, so this time, I combined the red with hot pink, lime green and blackened-brown.  The tones I used are a bit more subtle, so you could use similar shades which are bolder for an amp-ed up version of the look.  You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

I’m a huge fan of the Too Faced Peaches and Cream products and am absolutely loving their new Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Long Wear Lipsticks.  I first purchased the shade ‘Breakfast Club’ and was so impressed that I ended up picking up two more shades – Got Peach? and Peach Beach.

I love the vibrancy, opacity, smoothness and comfortable feel of these lipsticks.  They smell delicious too, due to their refreshing peachy, vanilla-esque scent.

If you are on the look out for a new matte lipstick with incredible pigment, opacity and comfort, then I highly recommend the Too Faced Peach Kiss range!
