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.  You can view posts on the site featuring the NYX Palette here and the Kat Von D palette here.

Neutrals With Pink (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been wearing a lot of bright eyeshadow combinations recently so I fancied trying something more neutral today.  I used shades from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette for the eyes and finished the look off with a hot pink lipstick and pink blusher to add some vibrancy.

To complement the look: I used MAC Dollymix Blusher on the cheeks, MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter to highlight the cheekbones and Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipstick in Homecoming Queen on the lips (you can read more about the Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipsticks here).

Classic Grey Taupe Eye (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really fancied trying out a more neutral combination with the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette (see my post on this palette, including photos and swatches here) and came up with this light greyish-taupe look.

Combination Ideas: This look is classic enough that it can go really well with all sorts of lip colours.  I wore this combination with Too Faced Wham lipstick, a creamy, glimmering berry shade with pink, silver and purple sparkles.  You could also try this eyeshadow with pinks, reds and deeper berry hues.
