Bird of Paradise Inspired Makeup Look! | Tutorial

I am always looking for new things to inspire my makeup looks. Ever since I bought my Urban Decay Full Spectrum palette (link here for my first impressions) I have been experimenting with it to create different ideas and I feel as though I have come up with some really pretty makeup looks! Here is my Bird of Paradise makeup look and how to create it!

I started off by applying my base products (foundation, concealer, powder etc) and then used my Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in the shade 'Milk' to prime my lids and I blended this out with my fingers.

I then used my Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette and used a fluffy blending brush to apply the shade Hatter to my crease, then blended this up towards my brow bone. I then used the same shade and a smaller crease brush to intensify the colour in my crease. 


Using a flat eyeshadow brush I applied the shade Calavera to my entire lid area, making sure to bring it up to the green shade.


Using a small crease detail brush I applied the shade Seize to my lower lash line, bringing this up to meet the edge of the green shade, to create a kind of straight edge without it being too pristine.


To add some colour to the inner corner I used another fluffy blending brush and applied the shade Mean. I made sure to connect this to the top green shade and the orange shade on the lower lash line. 


I used the shade Bump to highlight my browbone and then used my Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner in the purple shade to line my upper lash line and I created a wing that finished just above the orange colour on the lower lash line. 







I added my mascara and then I was done! I love creating this look, I think it is SO fun for the summer time. I also love pairing it with my Jeffree Star Crocodile Tears Lipstick, which is a brilliant green colour! I always get complimented when I wear this look and it makes me feel so confident! I hope you enjoy this look, let me know if you recreate it or if you have any looks that you enjoy creating in the summer time!

Until next time...
