♕ The Mermaid Series ♕ Colours of the Sea ♕

Happy #MermaidMonday everyone! :D

I have another mermaid look for you today - I made it a couple of weeks ago, to try out more of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows I got for my birthday. I chose to use all the blue and green shades I had, and I also tried to use one of the shadows as eyeliner. This look reminds me so much of the sea - and I named it "Colours of the Sea" as a mermaid tribute to Pocahontas' Colors of the Wind song ♥

I started off, as always, by applying eyeprimer all over my lid (Too Faced's Shadow Insurance Original). I applied Makeup Geek eyeshadow in Poolside on  about 3/4 of the lid - on the remaining quarter, I applied NABLA's eyeshadow in Under Pressure. Those two shades got along so well, creating a simple and gentle gradient. On the crease I applied NABLA's Eternity shadow first, blending it with Poolside and Under Pressure. I adjusted the blending by using MUG eyeshadow in Boo Berry - which I applied on both crease and outer corner, creating a smooth shade. Not really a curved, C shape - yet not a pointy, V shape either... Something in between! As transition shade, I used NABLA's Fossil shadow.

On the lower lid I used a totally different colour/shadows scheme. First of all, I applied MUG shadow in Shore Thing; over it, I applied another shade by MUG - Dragonfly. Getting closer to the lashline, I applied MUG shadow in Neptune - which I'll later use as eyeliner.
On the lashline, I applied (as usual) NABLA eyeshadow in Nocturne. I then adjusted the blending by adding some more Shore Thing.
On the inner corner I applied MUG Foiled Eyeshadow in Pegasus. I am so in love with this shadow ♥___♥

For the eyeliner, instead of my usual black, I decided to go for a blue shade. I chose Neptune for this purpose: I gently "scratched" the pan with a brush, gathered the powder on a small plate and then added some drops of Fix +. By doing so, I obtained a bright, matte blue liner ready to use! *_*
I drew my usual winged line - thicker than usual, actually. I wanted it to stand out!
I applied NABLA's Antique White eyeshadow on my brow bone (as I always do); then I applied a black eyepencil on my waterlines, added false lashes and applied mascara on both upper and lower lashes. And that's it!

This look came out so pretty I didn't want to remove it at the end of the day XD I'm glad I managed to use almost all the shades I got (basically the only one I didn't use are Chit Chat, Fashion Addict and Hopscotch - all on the lilac/purple/periwinkle side of the spectrum). Also, even though I really love winter - this year I am really missing summer and I can't wait for it to come already! Luckily, this look helped and made me feel relieved... After all, sea/summery/mermaid looks are always appropriate, all year round - don't you think? ;D
(And I must admit I wore this look more than once! *_*)

Hope you enjoyed this look!
What's your current favourite eye look?
Also, is domebody else missing summer as much I do? XD

    1. Grazie!! :D
      Merito della mini ring light che attacco al cellulare quando faccio le foto... Fa una luce bellissima e i colori risaltano tantissimo! *___* (Inoltre, questi ombretti hanno colori super-brillanti già di loro!!)

  2. mi chiedo quanti look da sirena ci siano ancora in quella testolina che vive in fondo al mar!
    Look pericolosi, 'sti make up geek mi tentano sempre di più...

    1. Sarei capace di farne uno al giorno XDDD I look da sirena non saranno mai abbastanza u.u
