♕ Make Up Look ~ Perseids ♕

I have a special, personal tradition to "celebrate" the Perseids meteor shower (also known as the tears of Saint Lawrence) on August 10th: I like to wear dark blue smokey eyes (as dark as the night sky), and I've done this for the last four years or so. In fact, I have another Perseids makeup look that dates back on August 2014! (You can see it here, I was still blogging in Italian back then though)
I never posted 2015 and 2016 versions (because they were pretty simple), but this year I came up with something different and unique - so I had to share it with you :D

♕ Summer 2017 Most Played ♕

Summer is officially over so it's time to wrap it up and see what I've used/loved the most during this past season! I'm a little late this time, but as you may already know I've just started makeup school so I'm still in the process of settling into my new daily routine.

This summer was filled with tons of new entries - at least, for my standards XD Eyeshadows, lipsticks, face products, glitters... One of everything, basically - and I don't even know where to start from XD

As always, all credits for the Most Played idea go to GoldenVi0let ♥

♕ 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
