♕ Make Up Look ~ Golden Comet ♕

Here's another look I've created before the release of Freedomination (aka the summer collection by NABLA Cosmetics, you can read about it here and here), almost three months ago!
I've kept it aside on purpose too because it's quite autumn-y, given its warm shades - so I'm posting it now that summer is almost over and autumn is right around the corner!
Special thanks to my dear uncle who came up with the name for this look - Golden Comet! - because of the gold detail on the inner crease that reminded him of a comet

♕ The Mermaid Series ~ Ariel ♕
{Inspired by Laura @theclassicalmua}

I've been saving today's look for a special occasion, and that day has finally come! As I anticipated in my previous blog post (here), I officially started makeup school! I'm so excited for this new chapter of my life and I cannot wait to be a certified/pro MUA ♥

Back at the makeup look, I made this one some time ago - like, two months ago. It's inspired by Laura's (@theclassicalmua on Instagram) little mermaid look, which features a lot of glitters on the upper lids and eyebrows, plus a very cool mermaid tail shape on the outer corner. And, of course, it went on my to-try list straight away! XD
This is definitely the perfect look to celebrate the beginning of my journey, but since Halloween is just around the corner, hopefully it can also be inspiring in case you're planning to be a mermaid or the mermaid for Halloween ;D

♕ The Mermaid Series ~ Mermaid Tail Eyeliner ♕


September is here and summer is almost over, but I have a couple of mermaid looks for you coming up! I'm officially starting makeup school and I couldn't be more excited (and that's why I haven't been able to post in the past few days) so I decided to keep aside today's look and the next one to celebrate this event! :D
(I'll try to keep up and maintain a regular blogging schedule, however if you don't see any new posts for some days just know I'm not being lazy, I'm just focusing on school! But I'll do my best to keep posting as I usually do!)

Also, apparently today is National Mermaid Day - so one more thing to celebrate... And this makeup is really appropriate XD
Today's look is one of my very favourite I've made during the past months, to the point I even considered to use it as my profile pic!
I saw this cute mermaid tail/fin eyeliner style one day on Instagram (credits to @caramariemakeup) and of course I HAD to try it - and it was the perfect occasion to create a whole new mermaid makeup, needless to say XD

♕ Make Up Look ~ Glitter Rain ♕

This summer is really full of new products - which I either bought myself, received as a present from family or received as pr samples - I'm doing my best to show you guys everything XD In the previous post I showed you a look I specifically design to try an eyeliner by NYX - but I created today's look to try some loose glitters I got last month. These are from Glitter Palace - another UK based brand which I discovered through Instagram. The ones I got are all "chunky" - not fine, dust-like: they feature different shapes (circles, hexagons, stars...) and sizes (from dust to really big ones); can you tell I'm a little obsessed with glitters lately? XD Anyway, I really wanted to do a highly glittering look and that's what I came up with! ♥

♕ Make Up Look ~ Moon's Reflection ♕

Today's look is one of my favourite out of my most recent ones: I created it specifically to try out a couple of products: first of all, one of the new shades from the new Freedomination collection by NABLA Cosmetics - Freestyler. It really intrigued me, so I decided to make a look where it could stand out. Also, I wanted to test the Epic Ink Liner by NYX Cosmetics I recently got in a PR package; it has great feedback so I was so curious to see if it was worth the hype (spoiler: yes, it is! *_*).
Although not having any specific idea (I basically created it as I went) it turned out sooo pretty and dreamy, I love it ♥

♕ Make Up Look ~ Unicorn Make Up ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Freedomination Collection}

After tons and tons and tons of mermaid looks, about three weeks ago or so I decided it was time to make a unicorn make up - just for a change XD Nothing too crazy or graphical, I wanted it to be a very simple look - yet colourful and sparkly. I used a lot of shades from the Freedomination Collection by NABLA Cosmetics (my overview posts are here: part 1 and part 2) and quite some glittersssss XD

♕ The Mermaid Series ~ Alternative Mermaid Look ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Freedomination Collection}


Happy mermaid Monday everyone! :D

Today's mermaid look is quite unique and definitely showy! I've seen something similar by two artists on Instagram (@makeupbyjanedoe and @azraelia) and, as usual, I decided to give this look a try! It was a great occasion to use some shadows from the new Freedomination Collection by NABLA Cosmetics which, as I've already said many times, gives mermaid vibes. (Here are my overview posts - part 1 and part 2 - about this beautiful collection!)

The thing I love the most is the original fin design - that feels partly mermaid, partly dragon, but also looks like its flowing weightlessly in the water *__* Like some of those fishes which have these huge, thin, ethereal, flow-y fins ♥
