Peacock Eyes with Urban Decay

I love the colors in peacock feathers.

When I was a child and my parents would take me to the specialist eye doctor at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center, they would take me to a store that was in downtown Ann Arbor as a treat.  I would always choose a peacock feather to take home with me.

Eyes:  Urban Decay Shadows -- Peace (inner 1/2 of lid)
                                              Graffiti (outer 1/2 of lid)
                                              Fishnet (crease)
                                              Asphyxia (above crease)
                                              Honey (lower lash line)
          Wet 'n' Wild Brulee (under the brow)
          Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Copper Glow (upper lash line)
          Too Faced Eyeshadow Luxe in Socialite (over Pixi liner on upper lash line)

Have a gorgeous day!


  1. Oh wow, so pretty! You captures the peacock colours so nicely :)


  2. I love the transition between the green and blue. I also really like the deluxe palette. I feel like I rarely see it on other people's blogs.

    1. I think maybe because is isn't new and shiny it gets forgotten on blogs. It's one of my faves with the mix of brights and neutrals.

  3. So beautiful! I don't think I ever had an actual peacock feather, but I was obsessed with looking at pictures of birds at the library when I was a kid. Totally normal, right?

    1. You were born a "birder". My grandparents were huge birders, and I remember sitting and reading all the Audubon books and backyard birdwatcher books they had when I would visit them.

  4. Great job at replicating the peacock colors! I love this look.
