It’s time again for another #BeautiesOnFire post, you voted on Twitter and decided that our theme for May would be Ocean! Firstly, if you’re unsure as to what this whole #BeautiesOnFire thing is (where have you been hiding?) then please feel free to check out my introduction post below, additionally you may peruse this years themes.
It’s been absolutely ages since I were a part of this collaboration now, due to my blogging hiatus, let me tell you I were so utterly exhilarated to be thinking something up again and having a play around with cosmetics to create a new look with! It’s been so long since I’ve been able to create something a little ‘out there’ that of course for this months #BOF theme I decided that I’d rather come up with something of which wouldn’t conform to the ‘norm’ and most definitely isn’t everyday wearable. I wanted to stray a little from simply the ocean and instead thought about the mystical creatures hidden within, what is something that gets a tonne of hype (and especially at the minute) for the bright and incredibly fun colours? Yup – mermaids! I figured what would be a better time than now to have a play with being one myself.
Since I weren’t opting for a wearable look I totally changed up my usual contour routine, using greens and blues from an eyeshadow palette and applying the colour over the top of netting that I’d cut from my shower ball thing (yes I’m evidently fabulous at giving names to items), I were hoping this step would have turned out a little better like it had in my mind but maybe I just need more practice at being a mermaid. I used ocean colours on my eyes and opted for a mermaid tail liner, whilst going bright and bold with my choice of lip colour, using two products of which I hadn’t yet had the chance to. I could have done some things to take the look to a completely different level entirely, but I’m rather pleased with how it all turned out in the end, after all I’ve not been around for a pretty solid time as it is! I did forget to use mascara though which sent me in a bit of a mood with myself, but do feel free to imagine that I’m wearing Model’s Own Hyper Eyes and the P.S, Love Carbon Black Mascara!
