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.

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 the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette for this particular look.  This particular palette has a good range of creams, peaches and plums to choose from and fitted with the colour scheme for this look.

Today’s look for the Rainbow Series is based around BLUE, the fifth colour in the rainbow.  I’ve not combined bright blue with hot pink before so I thought it would be a fun combination to try out.  I think this is one of my favourite colour combinations from the series so far!

The Rainbow Series includes looks based around each of the colours of the rainbow.  You can read about the series and view more posts here.

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.
