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.
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’m using the NYX Swear By IT Eyeshadow Palette, supplemented by the occasional shade from other brands, to create looks for this series. This particular look uses shades from the NYX palette and a couple from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette.
