Move over unicorns, peacocks are having a moment.
Unicorns have been beauty lovers' spirit animals for some time, with a emphasis on pastel brights and glitter. SO. MUCH. GLITTER.
But this spring, we're seeing something closer to Earth. Colors inspired by the proud peacock. Dark blues (honestly? Who saw that coming?), emerald greens, deep purples (the shade, not the band), and a color after our own hearts, gilded gold.
Wear these colors with intent and a light hand. It can be easy to look like you're bruised without careful color delineation.
That said, nothing looks more modern than a smoky eye done in a palette of blues. Try a deep blue in the crease and at the lashline, with a creamy grey blended in the center. It's unexpected and will really make your eyes pop. Try Smith & Cult's Book of Eyes in Ice Tears
If you can't bring yourself to use blue on your entire eye, try using a liner, like Smith & Cult's B Line in Wax Spastic. This will give you a perfect pop of color.
For purples, I love wearing them on the lips. The right shade looks fresh and not costume-y. Winky Lux Matte Velour Lipstick in Royal is my absolute favorite for this look.
If you're really bold, you can wear a peacock blue on your lips, but be careful! If you're like me, you'll end up looking like you were trapped in a glacier for 3,000 years.
If you want to see how you can rock a peacock look while still staying true to yourself, shoot us an email, call us, or swing by the store.
What do you think about the shift from pastels to bolds? From unicorns to peacocks?
