Mermaid Inspired Eye Makeup | FloralsAndCoralsx

Ever seen those tutorials floating around youtube where amazing beauty gurus create ultra out there looks and they just look gorge? Yeah, me too. But until now I don't think I've ever been cool enough to rock it. Or even try it for that matter. We are all far too often under misconceptions that makeup should be far too serious; yet one of the most thrilling things for me is just creating a look (with no intentions of leaving the house may I add) and having fun! I'm guilty of it myself, wrapping my thoughts only around the 'safe' golds and browns every day, but if you don't try, you don't know! It may actually look beauts and without giving it a whirl you'd never even notice. It also gives you an amazing opportunity to use those 'scary' colours that some palettes come with. Every product deserves being used!

Mermaid Inspired, Blue, Glitter, Eye makeup

What I used...
All of the products mentioned here are drugstore, which is the beauty of it. You DO NOT need to spend a fortune to wear bright colours, even though this is a thing we do all believe. (Although splurging on high end is extremely satisfying!)
MUA Starry Night Palette
MUA Dusk Til Dawn Palette
Freedom Pro Strobe Palette
Eyelure Enchanted Lashes In Adored (Limited Edition)
Makeup Revolution Amazing curl Mascara
Collection glam crystals liner in 'le freak' (As a glitter all over rather than an actual liner)
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'permanent taupe'
Soap And Glory brow archery in 'brownie points'
MUA Swatches Starry Night and Dusk til Dawn
From left to right - Third Bottom Shade in the 'MUA Dusk til Dawn', Fourth Bottom Shade in 'MUA Dusk Til Dawm', Sixth Bottom Shade in 'MUA Dusk Til Dawn', Second Bottom Shade from 'MUA Starry Night', Miss Sporty Khol Kajal in Luminous Beige.
The shades here I used for bases; a bright eye essentially requires something to stick to. You could just use any desired eye primer for this. Left to right - Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe, Top Second Colour in the Freedom Pro Strobe (concealer shade).
Collection glam crystals in 'le freak'
Soap and glory brow archery 'brownie points'

So, whack on that blue eye shadow, big lashes and glitter liner. Who doesn't want to look like Ariel? I for sure do! Have a bit of fun and let us know how you get on under the sea.
