cockateil make up featured

I ask my friend “V” what does this make up look like. She said straight away a cockatiel of course! Is that a good thing? but as I already did a make up look called the Golden Whistler another bird inspired look. I thought I’d run with it. Maybe I’m all about the Birds. So I bring to you my Inglot Cockatiel makeup How-to.

eyeshadow cockatiel

These are the first eyeshadows I used, I don’t think it’s totally necessary to use No.41 as well, but I like a little shine from time to time.

First apply the medium grey matte eyeshadow, I used Inglot Matte 387.

  • Next I used a small pointed crease brush in deep brown. (MAC Embark)


  • I firstly applied the deeper matte lime green colour ( Inglot No. 51) and then put the shimmery shadow on top (Inglot Shine 41)

  • Line the upper lash line with liquid liner and wing it out
  • I then applied this dark muddy green colour underneath my eye (inglot 56) and winged it out following the line of my
  • I placed the shimmery white into the very corner of my eye

cockateil step 5

  • In between the black winged out liquid liner and the winged dark green liner I carefully placed the Matte white shadow (Mac Gesso)   with a stiff angled brush. FOR EXTRA DRAMA!

Looking through my back log of make-up photo’s I’ve realized that maybe I love green a little too much. I can’t help it, I unashamedly embrace my love affair with this beautiful colour….. I did however think lining my water line with this forest green gel liner might clash, but I think these two very different toned greens look smashing.

This was a simple look I achieved using Barry M  eye dusts. I love bold colours but sometimes I find it hard to pull of blues but this time I did good, so I thought I would share.

The colour on the left is a Dazzle Dust No.98 and the one on the right is a Glitter Dust  No.20 Denim. I used the denim across the entire eyelid and blended it out. Next I placed the  Dazzle Dust  on the outer corner of my eye, this colour is very unusual it almost looks like oil slick, with hints of navy, teal and purple . I also used a white highlight in the inner corner of me eye, and a teal coloured eye pencil on the water line of my eyes.

I hope you enjoyed.

This look is about having sultry eye’s and a focal point of red “Valentines” Lips.

This is the kind of “date night” look I would wear, when I want to keep my make-up looking light but I also want add an little extra oomph to enhance the natural appearance of my eye’s, whilst keeping the focal point on my lips. After all that’s where the kissing happens……

Once upon a time we all watched our beloved Disney cartoons in a distant land called childhood (and perhaps we still do from time to time despite being “all grown up”). One thing I noticed was that Purple seams to be the “bad guys” colour. The evil Queen from Snow White has two hues of purple eyeshadow, as well as Ursula from The little mermaid  who is quite literally purple!

I created this look inspired by, the badies of Disney.

How I did this:

  • Create a high winged shape
  • Blend out well above the crease.

(Insure that the deeper colour doesn’t make the lighter pink too murky .)
