Peacock Inspired EOTD

Hello Hello Beauty Babes!
Happy Makeup Monday to you.
This week is Challenge week, and its one I think you will all enjoy!

The Challenge is to get 'PINspired' - Recreate a look, Mani/Pedi, or hair style that you found on or pinned to Pinterest! I love this challenge because we often pin so much, but how often do we actually do or recreate what we pin? I do every so often, but not as much as I would like. So we challenge ourselves and YOU to Get Pinspired and CREATE!! ♥

Ok so MY look was inspired by THIS Pin, that reminded me of a Peacock! Ive been wanting to try a peacock inspired look for a while. So this was the perfect look to recreate.
For this look I used My Beauty Addiction Mineral Eye Shadows in:
French Vanilla - Cream White
Jealous - Green
Cancun - Light Blue
Royal - Dark Blue

Anarchy - Purple
Amber - Brown
Twinkle Dust Sparkle FX in Gold (Added this over Amber and Anarchy)

All of these shadows & the glitter were used with Shadow Poxy, and can be found at My Beauty Addiction:

On my Face:
My Beauty Addiction Perfect Canvas Makeup Primer
My Beauty Addiction Anti-Aging Mineral Foundation in
#6 'Honey'

On my Lips:
My Beauty Addiction Color Rich Lipstick in 'Red Hot'.
Im wearing it over a clear lip balm, so it looks lighter than it actually is!
Ladies I have to tell you about this Twinkle Dust Sparkle FX Glitters! "Natural Glitter. Twinkle Dust- Sparkle FX Glitters are eye safe & lip safe! Twinkle Dust Glitters are mineral based and are made from mineral platelets of Calcium-Aluminum-Borosilicate which are very transparent and reflective. (Glitter is typically made from metal or plastic.). This also makes them much smoother & softer to the touch."

They are AMAZING. I'm now obsessed with this glitter for my eyes! Its sort of hard to capture just how great they look on the eye, but you can sort of get any idea from the up-close photo above ^. As I mentioned before I used the Twinkle Dust in Gold, and added it over the brown and purple eye shadows I used. Isn't it gorgeous!?
I totally LOVE how this look turned out! Its such stunning. Now if you would like to get an idea of how it looks on me in person, rather than just a photo then check out this video I made sharing the look on Keek.
