'Golden Macaw' Look

'Golden Macaw' Look

I had absolutely no idea where I was going with this look when I started. I just pulled colors from everywhere and this is what I ended up with. I had some muddying issues with the colors but managed to salvage it at the end except that the green could use a touch more blending.


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I also applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte creamy beige) all over my lid up to my brow bone as my primary base.

On the inner lid I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory).
Next the middle of the lid I applied MAC Goldenrod Eyeshadow (matte golden yellow).
On the outer lid I applied MAC Landscape  Green Pigment (matte grassy green).
Next for the outer crease I used MAC Blue Cyan Pigment (matte vivid blue).
On the inner crease I used MUFE #92 Eyeshadow (matte brilliant purple).
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne).

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud.

I lined my upper lashline with Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower waterline with Loreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black.
I lined my lower lashline with MUFE #92 Eyeshadow, MAC Blue Cyan Pigment and MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow.
I used Covergirl Lashblast Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Demi Pixie Lashes for effect.


I used MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick topped with Dior #3 Lip Polish.
My girl Amy (Ambientblu) just bought Vegas Volt and that reminded me that I owned it too. The Dior Lip Polish added a great juicy effect (although it's not very long wearing).


I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe with MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #12 under my eyes. I set with MAC Blot Powder in Dark.
I used NARS Amour Blush for my cheeks.
