Inspiration Board - Peacock Feathered Lashes


Inspiration boards are essential to the photoshoot.  It helps you to get a clear picture of the kind of work you would like to do and how you would put your own creative touch to the makeup.  For this photoshoot I had these great peacock feathered lashes that I wanted to incorporate.  Part of getting my inspiration board together I researched peacocks and their true colorings and markings placement.  And I got inspired by other artists work.  Once I got my idea clearly, I put together an inspiration board like this one to hang up on the mirror or wall where my station was set up at.  Any time I got stuck, I could quickly reference my board to get me back on track. 

This is what I came up with....

As you can see, my work looks nothing like the pictures above.  It's my own creation.  But the pictures helped me to stay inspired and keep me moving. 

Feel free to use the board above to make your own version of a peacock inspired makeup look.  If you do, post your efforts in the comments!  I would love to see what you came up with!  It's amazing to me how one idea can turn into so many unique versions.
