Flamingo Costume Makeup

This flamingo makeup was inspired by Jessa’s love for flamingo’s ūüôā

I used this palette and it’s ON SALE Urban Decay¬†(I use it all the time but for this look I used the pink and orange.)

I used eyeliners:

Lancome Artliner Noir

Urban Decay Yeyo

Urban Decay Glamrock and/or Distortion glitter liners

Bobbi Brown blush in Berry

And you can just use the edge of a sheet of paper to create a straight line. As far as Halloween makeup goes, I feel like this is a pretty easy look to do.

I wanted to do a different spin on the typical flamingo makeup look. It’s like a¬†coachella styled flamingo¬†haha.

Peachy Makeup Goodness


I once had a client that was trying to get me to go on a date with this guy by pitching to me how incredibly hot he was. My friend Adriana who was working with me that day, interjected saying “Vivian mostly cares if he’s hot on the¬†inside.” ¬†¬†Well that same night, Jeff (my husband) introduced me to someone as his girlfriend. He assumed that I already knew I was his girlfriend, (duh he said.) I guess it never crossed his mind to discuss it with me ūüėČ So no date for me with Mr. Hot. I was ok with it :-)Well, this is Nattalie and¬†she¬†is super hot on the inside. Her personality is as magnetic as her looks are, and I’m not fibbing.


Here are the links to the products I used to get this look.
