Look: Platinum Peacock

Going from those peacock feathered eyes of yesterday, I wanted to do something with Platinum Pigment. Platinum is a strange pigment because it’s sooooo finely milled (more than most pigments) that it’s like the consistancy of ash. Just really pure and powdery. So when applied, it’s really like metal on the eyes which is cool. This look might seem a little OTT for some of you, but I put it on for a night out in a dark restaurant. Good times!

For this look I used:

  • Eyes: UDPPS (primer), Bare Study PP (base), Platinum Pigment (inner lid), Yaby Black (outer lid), Humid (crease), Climate Blue (outer & upper lid), Vellum (highlight), a touch of Blue Flame (outer lid), UD 24/7 Dime (inner lashlines), Feline Kohl Power (outer lashlines & waterlines), Chanel Exceptionnel mascara
  • Cheeks: Chanel Tweed Rose Blush
  • Lips: Le Metier de Beaute in Papaye Creme lip cream

See more pictures! I lined the upper and lower lashline with two different colors: Silver on the inside and faded to black on the outside, but the waterlines were done in Feline black so there would be some drama.

    have you thought of doing a step by step tutorial? with pics? oh,and kind of OT,but I read that one can use a black base for shadows(like duochromes or brights) to make the color pop even more..any ideas? maybe MAC Blackground paint pot?

    I have…but I never know which look would merit making a tutorial for. I’ll try sometime though :-)

    About the black base…I’ve never tried that but you might be right. I put black on the outside of my lid underneath to help out the purple, blue, and green. I might try that next time I use a bright metalic color.
