    Thanks Christine, I actually have some of those colors on my “to get” list, I might be adding parrot.

    • No problem! I think one of the best reasons to buy Parrot is because it has great color pay off. See, it’s one of those lovely colors that actually goes on like it looks in the pot. With MAC, it happens often enough, but I really, really enjoy shadows that go on like butter.

    Parrot is such a stunning color – love it! I would wear it with either Carbon or Juxt for a little drama or just Vanilla pigment or Expensive Pink for normal wear, along with loads of black mascara and eyeliner.

    I would go for a pinkish blush on cheeks (Coygirl or Dame) and a plum/pinkish brown lipstick (Twig or Craving or Brave).

    place bare canvas all over lid

    embark lightly all over lid avoding the browbone (which later I use a color from my bronzer shimmerbrick for the brow bone).

    starting from outter corner over crease work a light sweep of mulch over the lid stopping at the corner of the eye(blend!!).

    smudge some parrot in the crease..and line the eye with a good amount of parrot.

    load up the mascara

    Thanks for this Christine!

    I am excited to try out all these ideas. I bought Parrot because its sooo pretty, but its out of my comfort zone so I had no idea what to do with it. I think this will make me a little braver now!

    • Sure thing, Lindsay 😀

      I’m happy to offer up some new ideas and share combos that have worked for me in the past. Goodness knows I’ve done a lot of looks, lol!

  10. Julia

    I use Sushi Flower on the inner half on my lid, and Parrot on the outer half. I then blend it with Stars ‘N Rockets in the crease. It reminds me of cotton candy :)

    WOW, you gave so many ideas for this one and I cant wait to try them out. Thanks! I absolutely LOVE parrot. I just wore it out last night and I combined my 2 new favorite colors; I put Moon’s Relection on the lid and Parrot in the crease and Vanilla on the brow (though i dont think vanilla showed too well.) I need a couple more highlight colors.

    This is how it came out
