Twenty-Fourth Weekly Makeup Tag - Peacock

Hey girls, guess what ... Exactly 6 months ago I started this tag which means my little tag is six months old today, I am beyond overwhelmed and let me tell you I couldn't have got this far without you, if the tag is where it is then its simply because YOU helped me make it successful! Another big thank you to Deja and Sal you girls were the ones who encouraged me to start it and still participate til this day. As I mentioned last week I'm doing a giveaway of the Urban Decay 'Glinda' Palette I have this palette myself and love it.

To make this giveaway fair couple of simple rules:
- I will place names of everyone who actively participates in my weekly makeup tags and does the next step into a hat and the winner will be randomly picked
- You must leave me at least two idea's for future themes (please make sure we haven't already previously used the theme in the past)

On to this weeks theme which was 'Peacock' inspired, all I can say is three words OH-MY-GOD we rocked it! This theme is my second best one so far after the Arabian Makeup Tag, big well done girls the creativity is above and beyond.
Please say hi to Danielle who is joining us this week (waves frantically)

  7. omg everyone looks so good and colourful :)!! loved this theme! this tag is always a good reason to go a bit over the top hah :D.
    i suck with theme ideas but a few ones i could think of would be something like taking for example a pic of a sunset and everyone would use the same pic as inspiration or then we could all do ourselves a drag look as in pretending to be male hahaa :D. always wanted to try that :D!
    or maybe a theme like "your favourite movie" so everyone would do a different look based on their favourite movie :).
    as you can see, i suck with ideas :D. but i'm totally in with any theme!!

  8. Oh mannnn, this week's looks look amazing! You're right, it's one of the best! And I can't believe it's the 24th time already.. I'm so glad Deja and I pushed you to do it, because I remember you were doubting. SO glad you did it!! And I also want to thank you for hosting this every week! Seeing this tag, whether if I joined the team or not, always cheers me up! It's amazing to see how so many girls come up with so many looks, while it's all the same theme!

    A big thank you, Aqeela, for organising it week after week, and to all the other ladies as well, for coming up with awe-inspiring looks every single week!

    I agree with Rockstar, Emo, Cleopatra and Goth! I think it would be loads of fun. No brushes would be a challenge, which is good!

    1) Rainbow
    2) Catwalk (we pick something from the current runway season)
