♕ The Mermaid Series ~ Free as a Mermaid ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Freedomination Collection}

Now that I've posted both part 1 and part 2 of my Freedomination overview, I can show you the looks I'm creating with this lovely collection. (Mind you, I have some previous looks I haven't posted yet, so I'll just alternate them in order to maintain my schedule!)

Today's look is inspired by MrDanielMakeUp (i.e. NABLA's art director), who created this makeup for the Freedomination Collection launch! I really loved the colour combination and I felt the urge to try it *__*
It gave me strong mermaid vibes (just likepart of the collection already did) so I named my version (which is slightly different from his) Free as a Mermaid. 
I think it fits, since mermaids represent, among other things, freedom (of life)... And this collection is all about freedom, right? ;D

(Screenshot from Daniele's video - you can watch it here if you haven't already!

In the picture above you can see Daniele's original look on the beautiful Marina.
As I already said, I kept the colour scheme (for the most part, I just added a couple of shades) but changed the shape a little bit, especially towards the inner corner, because it doesn't suits my eyes! 

After priming my lid I started off by creating the crease/outer corner blending. I applied Lotus first with a big, fluffy blending brush; then I applied Eresia (personal choice, as Daniel's original look doesn't include it), with a flatter blending brush; lastly, I applied Blue Velvet with a fluffy pencil brush. Every time I added a colour, I made sure I blended it carefully with the previous one.
I did the very same thing on the lower lid, and connected the blending on the outer corner - so at this point I achieved a soft V shape.
As I said before, I changed the inner corner shape as the original one doesn't suit my eyes - so I decided to do an half cut crease (I really love this technique!) instead, following my natural crease shape.
On the inner part of the lid I applied New Heaven, then I applied Virgin Island - in both cases, I used smaller, precise brushes to achieve that neat shape. 

Eyeliner time. First of all I applied Tattoo Liner in Trooper by Kat Von D Beauty and created my usual winged line. Then I applied Dazzle Liner in Crystal and drew a partial second line, that starts from the inner corner and ends towards the middle of the lid.
On the waterline I used my favourite black eyepencil (Feline by MAC Cosmetics), as I don't own a proper dark blue pencil; thus I added a little bit of black on my lower lashline too (Nocturne).
I used Millennium as inner corner highlighter, and Antique White on my brow bone.
Final steps: applied false lashes (Wispies by Ardell Lashes) and mascara (Extended Play Gigablack Lash mascara by MAC Cosmetics)
