♕ The Mermaid Series ♕ Mermaid Soul ♕


Another look just in time for #MermaidMonday! Like the previous ones, this features some Makeup Geek Cosmetics eyeshadow too. I used teal and green shades this time, so this makeup is more mermaid-y than ever! And it's also very simple, because I used just three main shadows (plus one as eyeliner). Sometimes less is definitely more ;D


I named it "Mermaid Soul" because I think it represents quite well a mermaid: it's bright and shimmering, yet deep and intense. Like a mermaid ;D
Anyway, when I created it I had no well-defined inspiration - I just wanted to do a mermaid look, but I had nothing clear in my mind.

I chose three main shade for this makeup: Shark Bait, Dragonfly and Shore Thing - which, to me, are wonderful used together, really a great colour combination.
I also decided to use Pegasus (my favourite above all others, so far) as eyeliner, to add sparkles to an otherwise all-matte look. 


After applying the eyeprimer, I applied Shark Bait eyeshadow by Makeup Geek Cosmetics all over the lids (both upper and lower). On the crease I applied Dragonfly, blending it outwards creating a V shape. Then, I blended it using Shore Thing as transition shade; I used it to blend Shark bait on the lower lids too. On the brow bone I used Antique White eyeshadow by NABLA Cosmetics, while on the inner corner I applied Sensuelle (by NABLA as well), the only shimmer eyeshadow I used (apart from the eyeliner of course).


Moving to the eyeliner, as I said previously I used Pegasus wet as such. It's STUNNING. Easy to make and apply. Just pick some powder from the pan (I usually scratch the product off with a brush) and pour some drops of Fix + on it. Then mix and voilà, here's your custom eyeliner!

I created a thick line with Pegasus, because I wanted it to stand out as much as possible. After applying it on the upper lashline, I decided to do the same on the lower lashline too. I'm glad I did so because this made the look more unique and sparkly *_*

On the waterline I applied a teal eyepencil, just for a change. Then I completed the look with false lashes and mascara.

  2. Posso dire, senza esagerare, che questo trucco mi fa letteralmente sognare. Non so neanche da dove cominciare per spiegare quanto mi piace, quindi perdona la mia dislessia da fan girl in estasi.
    Inutile dire che questo makeup porta una scritta "trucco di Ariel, l'unica vera sirena", grande come una casa e se mi fosse capitato di vederlo su un'altra persona, avrei subito pensato che aveva preso ispirazione da te. Non possiedo nessuno degli ombretti utilizzati, Sugar a parte, ma mi riprometto di acquistarli e di provare a ricrearlo. Sono ben conscia che il risultato sarà molto differente...ma ci si prova... se non altro ;) Bravissima. Come sempre.

  3. P.S
    Ho appena chiamato una mia collega dicendole "vieni a vedere qualcosa di bellissimo" e lei, dopo un due minuti di ohhhhhh di sorpresa, ha decretato che sei una vera artista.
    E io sottoscrivo. ^__^
