Panda Does Makeup: Animal Instinct Contest

Good afternoon my makeup loving buddies!! I've been a busy girl today. Had a little free time so I decided to enter a contest. Rebecca over at Panda Does Makeup is hosting a contest. What you had to do was take inspiration from your favorite animal, be it fish, insect, mammal or bird, and create a look using make-up. I'm posting a few entries here we go!

These are from this past Halloween. I did mine and my best friend's makeup for a night out. We were both tropical fish!
I used a combination of gesso, prussian, and chrome yellow MAC eyeshadows, blacktrack Fluidline liner and #7 lashes. Finished with red brick lip liner and Dubonnet MAC lipstick.

I used on Jess a combination of pink bronze, chartreuse, pinked mauve, and naval blue MAC pigments with the same eyeliner and lashes as above.

I was a four-eyed butterfly fish.And Jess was a Stoplight Parrot Fish....she's the biologist that knows everything about ocean life! I love her!And I did this today....
My favorite...the peacock!

Here is the progression of the application:
This is a combination of two MAC paint pots - Delft and Moss Scape layered with Flashtrack and Juxt eyeshadows.
I've outlined the beak with MAC fluidline - waveline and added MAC eyeshadow -orange with wet liner brush and Springtime Skipper (eyeshadow from the Barbie collection).
I added a combination of Gesso, Carbon, Flashtrack, and Springtime Skipper MAC eyeshadows to the right eye. Right eye is lined with waveline MAC fluidline and Classic Cream liquidlast liner. Left eye is lined with blacktrack MAC fluidline and Auto-Orange liquidlast liner.
Both eyes are finished with #7 MAC lashes.
Wish me luck!! I really want to win!!!
