One of my favorite makeup looks year round would be the ever popular smokey eye, so I figured what better way to update it than with some holiday colors, thus turning from a smokey eye to a peacock eye! I don't know about you, but a rich dark emerald green is what I consider one of the most beautiful colors out there. I decided to pair the green with a gorgeous gold for a dramatic and reflective contrast.
The peacock eye is associated with the brilliant Pat McGrath for Roberto Cavalli's Fall 2012 show, who used as much as four bright and contrasting colors on the eye. While nothing less than stunning on the runway, for a more subtle but equally gorgeous look, pick an unexpected pair of shimmery dark and light colors.
When you work with any eyeshadow, you're going to want to use a primer to ensure not only that it wont move, but that the color will be at its purest saturation. The eye primer I used on Jilly was Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer. After, I applied the gorgeous gold, Half Baked, from the Urban Decay Naked palate from the inner corners to the middle of her eye. I then applied NARS Night Porter eyeshadow, a gorgeous dark emerald green, from the middle of her eye out-making sure to blend!
