Ace makeup artist, Hira Khan shows us how to get the perfect glitzy peacock eyes
Hi ladies! So I recently posted a tutorial on my YouTube chanel (HiraKhanTutorials) on how to get these glitzy peacock eyes. So I decided to do a detailed product breakdown for this look alongside reviewing each product used. Happy reading!
1) Makeup Geek Eye Shadows – For the eyes I used the Makeup Geek Eye Shadows “Center Stage” on the lid and lower lashline which is their electric blue foiled shimmery shade and “Wisteria” which is a matte lilac shade in the crease. To be honest this is the first time I used Makeup Geek eyeshadows and oh boy, am I in love!? Pigmentation on point! Other than that the variety of shades is to die for.
2) Beauty World Palette in Harlequin – From the BCW backstage to the Nabila Salon team, everyone’s been talking about these new palettes by a local page on FB Beauty World. After all the hype I ordered their pressed glitter palette in Harlequin. When it came there were 2 shades slight damaged (cracky), but nothing that couldn’t be fixed. And when I swatched it…it was a dream! YES! Never have I been a fan of glitter on my eyes but this was an exception. Such beautiful and rich shades! For this look i used that gorgeous sea blue glitter. The only con is that there is A LOT of fall off so I used the Vipera fixer to stick it on really well and you gotta be a little careful not to spread it every where.
3) Black Gel Liner by Inglot – If you’re looking to get a jet black and long lasting liner the this is it! It’s super rich in texture and long lasting aswell. Since its gel, it can be tricky to use for beginners.
4) Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara – My ultimate dream come true! I cannot go a day without this mascara. The only mascara which gives you those voluminous lashes (as the name suggests) without any falsies. Although i did apply really light falsies for this look but even without any this mascara does wonders ladies! Definitely a must have.
5) Ofra Eyebrow Pencil in Universal – Never have i ever been a fan of pencils for the eyebrows but this was an exception. Maybe because the medium brown shade matched perfectly with me, but this pencil is definitely in my to go list now.
6) Mac 217 Blending Brush – This has always been my magic tool to blend it those eye shadows ladies. Whether you’re a pro or a beginner, this will have your back when it comes to blending.
7) Mac Angle Brush – I used this brush for my lower waterline and mostly I use it to fill in my eyebrows aswell. The best thing about this brush is its sleekness and how it so easy to handle on areas that need precision.
