It’s been a littlleeee while since I wrote a makeup look post up for you guys, so today I really wanted to share this pretty mermaid vibes look. These are some of my favourite posts to make, because although I am no makeup artist, I love creating new looks and trying them out on myself.
I recently reviewed the NYX ‘in your element’ wind palette, which you can see here and a lot of people enjoyed the post, so I thought it may be useful to create a makeup look using the palette so I can show you all how it looks in action!
Step one – Base: I first applied the NYX Honey Dew Me Up primer (£15) (which I have been loving lately) all over my face. I then used a mixture of Dior Forever Foundation (£35) and L’oreal True Match foundation (£9.99). I blended out my foundation using the Real Techniques buffer brush.
Step two – Eyes: I filled in my eyebrows using the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade (£15), with a Morphe s25 brush. I set them with the Rimmel Brow This Way gel (£4.99). I applied the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (£4.19) all over my eyelid using a Morphe s4 brush. I set this with a w7 cream coloured eyeshadow. I then went into the NYX Wind palette (£25). I applied shade number 2 in my crease with a Morphe s27 brush. I then took shade number 1 on Morphe s21 brush and applied it on the inner half of my eyelid. Then, using my finger I added a little bit of shade number 4 on the center of my eyelid. I then used shade number 12 on a Morphe s12 brush on the outer half of my eyelid, bringing it out into a wing type shape. Once this was done I blended everything out and added more of shade number 2 in the crease and shade number 1 on the inner half of my eye to intensify the colour. I also used a little of shade number 7 on my inner corner and brow bone with a pencil brush. Once I was happy with this, I used the Soap & Glory Supercat eyeliner (£6.50). I used Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara (£8.99) on curled eyelashes, then I applied some Myleah Lashes.
Step three – Finishing: I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (£4.19) under my eyes and on any blemishes on a Morphe s4 brush. I then set my face using the Rimmel Stay Matte powder (£3.99) using a Morphe s15 brush. On a Morphe s13 brush I used the contour colour from the Rimmel Kate Moss Sculpting Palette (£6.99), to contour and bronze up. I then applied the Rimmel Lasting Finish blush (£3.99) in the shade Santa Rose, I used a Real Techniques contour brush for this. Then, using a Morphe s26 brush I highlighted my cheek bones, my nose and cupids bow with the blue/purple highlight from the Makeup Revolution Sophdoesnails highlight palette (£8). Finally I used a Primark Matte Liquid Lipstick. I think the shade is called Cookies & Cream, but I’m not 100% sure.
That’s it! I hope you have enjoyed this post. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
