EOTD: The Fierce Peacock


You all know I like to get a little carried away when I do themed makeup looks. I mean look at my Marilyn Monroe look and my Arabic inspired makeup look, and even my princess Jasmine look. That's just me and I'm not sorry!
For this week's makeup tag I didn't pose like a peacock, but I did grab some accessories. And my camera took amazing pictures this time, wow!
Keep on reading to see more pictures!




Every week Aqeela has a makeup tag. This week's theme was 'peacock'. So many options! I wanted to do all the looks I had in mind.. To see how the other lovely ladies did, here's the blog post!

When I started I had a subtle look in mind, but once I got busy, I went a little crazy! I went for bold brows, strong crease, much black and.. False eyelashes! This is the second time in my life that I used false lashes. The first time was for my dragqueen makeup look. That's also when I discovered I don't like false lashes. It's just too much with my eyes and it's hard to keep it natural, because I already have long and thick lashes. But I have to say I love the effect these lashes have with my peacock makeup look! The lashes are from MAX and I bought them at Action (a store in the Netherlands).

Oh and I don't know what's going on with my camera, but I LOVE it! I found a way to make pictures without daylight and just wow. All these pictures are barely edited. I added my watermark and I did a little touch up (I had this weird spot on my face), but that's it!! I'm going to use this technique more often, that's for sure. Oh and for the ones who wondered: I use my iPhone 4s to take pictures.

Okay, so let's have a look!











Quite some pictures to look at, but I'm kind of proud of this look and these pictures!
Loved how they turned out, because usually colours - and just the whole makeup look basically - don't look that good on pictures as they do in real life!
So what do you guys think; am I peacock-approved?

  18. Hi Sal, echt super bedankt voor al je lieve reacties op mijn blog! Echt heel leuk om te lezen allemaal en zeker geen spam, haha! Leuk om te horen dat je mijn outfits zo mooi vindt, dat je er zelf inspiratie uit haalt en dat je mij als persoon ook leuk over vindt komen. Dat is alles wat ik wil bereiken met mijn blog, dus super om te horen! Zo'n print broek met kleur zou ik zeker halen inderdaad. Leuke en makkelijke manier om een kleurrijke outfit te maken. En voor de lange rok geldt dat natuurlijk ook. Instant chique en klassieke uitstraling! De link naar de jurk: klik! Hij is er ook in andere kleuren. Wel een beetje prijzig helaas, maar het wel waard denk ik als je het kan betalen! :)

    Ik vind jou blog ook erg leuk en ik vind alle make-up looks die je maakt echt prachtig. Daar ben ik echt heel erg slecht in, haha! Ik krijg net mascara en oogpotlood op m'n hoofd en dan ben ik gelukkig ;)

    1. Hoi Sonja, leuk dat je even terugkomt op m'n comment! Af en toe moet je elkaar als blogger gewoon laten weten wat je ervan vindt! Dat maakt het ook de moeite waard om verder te gaan voor de schrijver met een goed gevoel :) Ik vind het zo'n leuk jurkje dat ik aan het overwegen ben om 'm gewoon te halen! Heel chique en classy :)
      Ik vind het leuk om te horen dat jij mijn blog ook leuk vindt! Doet me deugd om te horen!! We houden contact! :) X
