Two Part Peacock Tutorial

Feelin' Peacocky?

Happy Friday!

How’s it going? I am having a lovely night, and I hope that you are, too!

So, I am up to 103 Subscribers! Yay! That’s so awesome–and it means that I FINALLY get to give-away all the groovy products I have been sitting on for months. I have been waiting and waiting to send somebody all this cool stuff–Kleancolor eyeshadows, Hard Candy Eye Defs and Gloss Pencils, L’oreal and Covergirl Mascaras, OneSweep Blushes–oh my!

My son, Nathan, is six years old. I think that he is the most amazing kid. When it came to choosing a winner for the Giveaway, I decided to let him choose because there was no way I was going to do it. I have been getting to know so many of my viewers both in comments/messages over YouTube and also on Twitter, it would just be sort of weird to choose. I mean, a part of me would want to choose a lovely that I feel is cool–and then the other part would want to ignore those people because it would be like cheating, you know? So, instead of writing 103 names down and choosing from a hat (OMG even at the thought!), I decided to let Nathan point to the winner. So, that’s what we did–and I have to tell you just how great this turned out. Nathan chose a 13 year old girl, her name is beverlyheld13 on YouTube, and you should be checking her out! She does great hauls and makeup/fashion videos–and she has really overcome a lot of challenges. Congrats, Beverly! I really hope that you enjoy this stuff, you sure deserve it! I can’t wait to see what you do with everything!

 

Okay…so onto this whole tutorial deal.

Pre-Peacock

So, I have been wearing this teal/gold color combo like its going out of style. I love gold eyeshadow in the inner corner, and I am always looking for interesting ways to wear animal prints–so this look was a fusion of two things that I love. I filmed several versions of this tutorial before Halloween, but every time I sat down to edit them I just wasn’t feelin’ it. The feathers either looked too big, too straight up and down, or too sloppy. Can I just say how hard it is to do eye makeup while filming?! LOL But anyway, I refused to give up. Finally, on October 30 I got it (pretty) right. When I was editing it, I made the decision to make it into two videos so that viewers who are not as adventurous (read: crazy) could just learn the beautiful teal and gold look.

 

This look was created using Wet N Wild Color Icon palettes in Vanity (Golds) and Bake-Off Contest (Blues), along with Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadows (Teals). The eyeliners are Jordana, Maybelline, and Hard Candy. I also applied mascara (Max Factor 2000 Calorie) to complete the look. Guess what I used to prime my lids? LOL You guessed NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil, didn’t you? Heh, you would be right if you did! 😉

In this second tutorial, I show you how to map out and create these metallic gold peacock feathers that dance happily across the crease. I seriously wore this look at least ten times last month, which is a first for me–that’s how much I loved it. I didn’t even bother to change products or colors. The only change between any of the filmings was that I was originally using a liquid Wet N Wild Liquid Liner. I decided it dried too shiny, and I loved the more accurate precision of the Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Liner in Brown. Man, I love that little eyeliner pen. When I do swaps, I ALWAYS include one–usually in Ultra Black because it is shiny, something unusual in a liquid liner. Ok, sorry for the detour! haha The way to create this look is to first map out the general shapes using brown liquid liner. Then you go over with the gold, in this case Gold Rush Beauty Rush by Victoria’s Secret liquid liner. I used white eyeliner pencil by Wet N Wild, Glitter Rocks Pencil from Jordana, and Flip Side Liquid Eyeliner from Hard Candy to do the center of the feathers. Then I added two sets of lashes, just for fun 😉 The first set was Natural by Revlon, applied with Revlon Lash Adhesive. The second set was Ardell 305 Half Lashes. I originally used feathers for the second pair, the same way that I did in the other Peacock Tutorial (the one inspired by Cora, vintageortacky on YouTube)–but I had already thrown them out by the time I got this look right. I thought I would find some more at the Halloween store where I originally found them, but I was wrong 😦 Oh well, I still think it turned out pretty well!

What do you think???

Hello, Lovelies!

Welcome to my Blog! I am so excited that its finally up and running. I am going to post all of my tutorials, along with bonus goodies that you can only find here–so make sure you check back often!

I have to tell you, I have really caught the “YouTube Bug”. If you go back and watch my Introduction video, you will see that I originally only planned on doing a tutorial every few weeks! Wow. I have really exceeded that goal! 😉

I am all set up to shoot videos in my room now, and my lighting is just about right. I have really noticed a difference in my last two tutorials. I also completed my fist haul video, which was exciting. Hauls and reviews are some of my favorite videos to watch on YT, and I have been dying to make one so I am glad that it finally happened. Here is the link to that video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJEGwI5esn8

So, now for the best part–a Giveaway!

As of right now, I have 53 amazing subscribers! I am so excited about that, and I am planning on doing a Giveaway when I reach 100. The products will be from a brand featured in the haul video, Kleancolors. I am going back to Crush Too this weekend to purchase the prize, which will be worth approximately $50. With products averaging around $3, it will be a lot of loot! If you aren’t yet subscribed, you will definitely want to visit my channel at http://www.youtube.com/cookiefarrer and subscribe for your chance to win. If you are already a subscriber, thank you! The only thing left for you do to is to share my channel and videos with your friends that love all things beauty so that you will all have a chance to win! As soon as I reach the 100 subscriber mark, I will randomly choose a winner–then, I will contact him/her over YouTube for a mailing address. If I do not hear back from the first winner within 48 hours, I will randomly choose a second winner just to make sure its fair.

Good luck!
