Jangsara Inspired Peacock Makeup Tutorial

18 comments:
 





So, a while ago I thought about doing a series where I would just recreate looks by my favorite beauty bloggers. Well, I never got around to doing a full series but I still do love to try my hand at looks done by ladies whose work I really admire. One of those talented artists runs the blog Jangsara. I've had her peacock inspired tutorial on my to do list forever and I finally got around to it.



I didn't have any of the products she used so I made a lot of substitutions. I still think it turned out nice, just really different. Mine definitely has a stronger copper presence in it, but I like that because it makes the blue in my eyes stand out. I paired it with some fabulous Bianca Lashes from FAUX ... as usual. Woops!


I honestly didn't know what to do for the face with this look and I'm not crazy about the lipstick I settled on, but oh well. You win some, you lose some. Any suggestions for what lip color(s) would better complement these eyes? 


Here's the look that inspired my recreation if you're at all interested in the comparison. Jangsara's was done with mostly MAC pigments while mine was done almost entirely with Makeup Geek shadows (surprise, surprise, I know!). I definitely got carried away with the color in mine (subtlety has never been my strong suit) and I still prefer hers by leaps and bounds but I have a long way to go before I reach her league of talent so I'm not too embarrassed by my version.

 

Somehow that became .... that. I guess in the end that's why I settled on an 'inspired by' rather than a recreation of because by the end of it I'd really made the look my own. But full credit to Jangsara for getting my creative juices going. Always fun to pay homage to your idols.

  3. I actually really like your colour choices and your lipstick colour. I think the whole thing is dramatic yet still very feminine and would be wearable by women with a variety of eye colours. Don't downplay your own talent! You did a fantastic job. If I hadn't seen the other version, I would have nothing to compare it to, but I really love what you did!
