Mermaid Makeup - Wearable!

Sunday, 29 April 2012

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know I have a secret love affair with pastels but especially mint! Spearmint, peppermint, and any kind of bluey-greeny pale mint colour!
Yesterday I went for the mermaid-y look, if you fancy trying out the hair then check yesterdays post! For the makeup, keep reading!

~Insert artsy eye makeup photos~ (too bad I'm not a photo editing whizz and they look like home snaps)

Here's how it went down:
For the eyes-
Painterly Pain pot by MAC
Sea foam eyeshadow all over the eyelid by Madison Street Beauty (MSB)
Tiffany blue eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eye by MSB
Mermaid eyeshadown along the crease, blended backwards and fowards by MSB
Folie eyeshadow on the outer half of the crease and feathered out so that you can still see the Mermaid blue eyeshadow underneth- Folie is by MAC
Shade 001 Time Resist White by L'oreal on the brown bone and inner corner of the eye
Brown gel eyeshadow along the top lashline by MAC
Folie by MAC along the lower lashline, so that it's not so harsh and heavy on the eyes
