Colorful Look with MAC Peacocky

Here is a more colorful look with the new Mega Metal Eyeshadows!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Dalliance eyeshadow all over the lid. Lightly blend Odalisque eyeshadow into the crease and blend into the outer corner with the 222. Next, apply Noir Plum eyeshadow into the lower crease with the 239 (horizontally), lightly blending with Odalisque. Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying #12L eyeliner on the lower lash line and pat Noir Plum eyeshadow on lower lower lash line with a dampened 219 to brighten. Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Sur blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116, then highlight with Gana blush using the 165.

For lips, apply So Vain lipcolour for a complementing lip.

    So pretttttyyy!!!!! I think I’m gonna get the Dalliance e/s…not much of a colorful eyemakeup gal here. Maybe in 2011, i need to bust out of that rut, ey??

    fab, I’m going to try this out with similar coloured eyeshadows that I already own!

  9. looks great on you! These colors were all over fashion week in sept and I cannot WAIT to grab some. I haven’t hauled any MAC for a long time.
    I thought I had read that the launch wasn’t until the 6th. The collection is up on maccosmetics.com now, with my PRO login.

    So pretty! You’re making it hard to limit myself to one or two colors. I hope these shadows will be indicative of the ones MAC plans to make into the future as the formula looks so smooth and amazing.

  27. morena123

    Very pretty!! I wasn’t going to buy anything from this collection but i may reconsider now after seeing this look. And i notice hat you use Nars smudeproof base a lot lately, is this base the best one out right now??? Or why do you choose that one over, lets say too faced or UDPP? (despite its packaging prob.)?

  28. Jennifer

    Gorgeous, Christine! A nice pop of colour during my cold, Canadian winter:) Of course, now I have to add these colours to my Mega Metal order because they look so amazing on you…bye bye wallet…

  32. Germa Brokschmidt

    Verry nice!

  33. somehow the shirt’s color is really complementing this look hahaha :D
    I love the lip color, the eye look also but I’m not sure I could do it myself for now :P

  34. lissa

    Wow Christine– love those colors! UD just went live with the new stuff and this look works perfectly!

  35. This definitely makes me want Noir Plum, this is a lovely look Christine! It’s colorful but still soft!

  36. Avatar of Kelly Kelly

    The eyes look stunning, Christine! The shadows look like they blend like a dream. “Yes, I said blend like a dream.” Keep the inspiration coming!

  37. this is beautiful. I’m so inspired and now I’m convinced I need all Peacocky eyeshadows even more.

  38. Brittany Power

    Very pretty… Does Dalliance compare in any way to Gana?

  39. Heather

    I love it! Colorful yet wearable!! Brilliant makeup

  40. Heather

    Do you put the eyeshadow base on your lower lid too?

  41. ChynnaBlue

    This is absolutely gorgeous! Lovely colors and they look great on you. Lots of color without looking cartoon-ish.

  42. Avatar of Marie Marie

    Very nice look. it reminds me of this look:
    http://www.temptalia.com/birthday-makeup-ice-cream-swirl-cake

    I prefer this one actually but I can’t quite figure out why. Maybe because it looks more “mature”, I don’t know. ^^

  43. Federica

    Gorgeous !!!!! =) and now I’m even more in love with noir plum!!!

  44. Colorful and fun but classy at the same time! :)

  45. Beautiful! I love all the colors you used.

  46. Brian McD

    The colors on your eyes are pretty but I have to admit, Sur, Gana, and So Vain look absolutely amazing on you. Like you just got back from a tropical spa vacation. Very natural. The shimmer of Gana seems to perfectly match the shimmer your skin naturally has in flash photography. I am def gonna pick that one up!!

  47. Malia

    Love this look Christine! You look goregous! So happy to see another great look!

  48. Avatar of Nadine Nadine

    You really have the skills of a professional make up artist!

    Love that collection! The mega metal eyeshadows are so wonderful! Hope they won’t be too expensive in France…

    Thank you for that look!

  55. Sarah

    Noir Plum and especially Odalisque were my two must-haves specifically so I could do a purple/teal/gold look. This look is soooo pretty! You’re making me want Dalliance now, haha!

  56. Avatar of Alex Alexandra

  70. Avatar of LU LU

    Love it, my third fave look on you! Looks a lot like your birthday cake makeup look, which is my second favorite!

  71. shalex

  74. Vrushali

    OMG! I love it. Though, how did you apply the eyeshadow on the lower lash line? It looks beautiful! Everytime I try to do it, I mess it up :-(

  75. amy

    The colours look very pretty together. I think this is one of my favourite FOTDs you have put together in awhile.

  76. cat

  81. Avatar of Shontay shontay

  82. Avatar of Melissa divinem (Melissa)

    You make it awfully hard not to want to run out and get all these colors! That is as gorgeous look on you!

    Question: Are the metal shadows larger in size than a regular MAC shadow? I’m curious to know why the price is so high?

  83. Martina

    I love love love this look!!beautyful..

  84. Avatar of Melissa divinem (Melissa)

    Also curious to know if there’s a lot of fallout with these shadows? Soooooo pretty!

    Looks like a purple and light gold eye and then you get that pop of teal blue… I’m going to have to try this!
    Love how you did your lower lashline too.
