Hello loves! With the absolute craze for mermaid looks in the beauty community right now, I knew I had to create my own version. I want to center it around blue and green glitter and this is the look I ended up with.

step 1: primer – I primed my skin with muf smoothing primer to create a smooth even base. I then applied becca backlight priming filter for an ethereal glow.

step 2: foundation – I mixed cover fx moonlight drops with tarte foundation for a glowy natural look.

step 3: concealer – I concealed my under eyes, eyelids, chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose, and center of forehead with UD naked concealer.

step 4: powder – I set my under eyes and eyelids with laura mercier brightening powder.

step 5: glitter – I drew on the outline for my defined cat eye using mug neptune shadow. I filled in the entire area with the same shadow. I used my finger to pack on glitter glue all over the shadow area. I then pressed the glitter on top of the glue.

step 6: liner – I filled in my waterline with loreal blue cobalt liner.

step 7: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 8: false lashes – I used ardell 251 lashes. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 9: brows – I filled in my brows with abh dipbrow taupe.

step 10: contour – I contoured my face using JS expensive shadow and neptune for a green sea like effect.

z-palette-face

step 5: powder – I set my concealer with abh banana powder and baked under my eyes with laura translucent powder. To bake you pack powder under the eyes and contour and leave it as you do the rest of your makeup so that the warmth of you skin really locks the product into place. Then you wipe off all the excess powder.

step 6: liner – I lined my eyes with a drawn out dramatic wing using abh jet. I brought the liner under my eyes and curved it near the inner corners to create a drag like eye.

step 7: shadow – I blended ash in my crease and then smudged my liner with black shadow  to really smoke it out.

step 8: brows – I filled in my brows using abh jet.

step 9: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 10: false lashes – I used ardell 203 lashes. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 11: lips – I overlined my lips using mac cherry liner. I filled in the rest of my lips with nyx fire and then pressed a red glitter from michaels on top.

halloween tutorial: masquerade

For this look, I was inspired by a look I saw on pinterest. It is a super easy look that is perfect for a last minute halloween costume. If you leave the house with this makeup look you’ll be a sensation with hardly any effort at all!

products used:

elmers glue stick

nivea mens shave balm

milani conceal and perfect foundation – 02 natural

lorac pro palette

morphe eyeshadow palette – 35N

mac gigiblack mascara – black

bobbi brown gel definer liner – pitch black

ardell lashes – 251

duo brush on lash glue

dolce & gabbana the blush – tan

milani baked blush – 05 luminoso

graftobian liquid latex

makeup forever flash palette

cinema secrets blood gel

colourpop ultra matte lip – LAX

marc jacobs highliner – black

nyx retractable lip liner – dark red

step 1: prime –  I applied nivea mens shave balm to smooth my skin and prolong my foundation wear.

step 2: brows – I used elmers glue stick to glue down my brows so that they wouldn’t be ripped off by the liquid latex.

step 3: foundation – I applied milani foundation all over my face and over the glue on my brows for an even base.

step 4: shadow – I decided to go with a brown smokey eye. I blended taupe all over my crease and lid. I then took sable a little lower in my crease and all over the lid. I depended the look by packing espresso all over my lid. I took black on a pencil brush and smudged it over my lash line instead of using liner. I then took a flat shader brush and applied black on my lower lash line and blended it out with sable and espresso.

step 5: liner – I put bobbi brown liner in my waterline and set it with the black shade from the lorac palette for added smoke.

step 6: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 7: lashes – I used ardell 251 lashes for this look. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 8: contour – I used d&g tan blush to carve out my cheekbones.

step 9: blush – I applied luminoso starting at the apples of my cheeks back towards my temples for a peachy glow.

step 10: liquid latex – To create a kind of scar like, open tissue texture, I paint liquid latex on the area and then stick pieces of pulled apart cotton on top. I then apply another later of liquid latex and use my fingers to pull the latex apart and move it in varying directions to create texture. If you use varying pieces of thin cotton you will already get a lot of texture.

step 11: coloring – For the beginning of the bloody look you need to lay down a base of color. I start by putting foundation over the liquid latex area so that it blend with the rest of my makeup and no white shows through. I then take a sponge and use MUF flash palette to create a red area. I mixed the red, brown and black creams to begin to darken the ‘scars’. (The only reason I have the flash palette is because of this series. It is super expensive and unless you do fx makeup is not worth it. I would just use lipsticks. Thats what I did for my look last year and it worked perfectly.) I then used a mixture of cool browns, burgundys, and reds from the morphe 35n palette to create a bruising effect. Once I got the look dark enough, I used a beauty sponge to pat on blood gel over the whole latex area until I looked just disgusting enough!

muf-flash

phantom-morphe-palette

step 12: lips – I want really vampy lips so I lined my lips with a marc jacobs black eyeliner and then went over it with nyx dark red to blend it in. I then applied colourpop LAX on top for a deep red brown lip.

halloween tutorial: zombie

I knew I had to do a zombie look for halloween but I wanted to do a little twist. I decided to do a glam zombie with big lashes, carved brows, and bright lips.

products used:

nivea mens post shave balm

josie maran vibrancy foundation – dynamic

coty airspun loose powder – translucent

make up for ever flash palette

morphe eyeshadow palette – 35N

anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade – taupe

ardell lashes – 251

dup brush on lash glue

anastasia beverly hills liquid lipstick – electric coral

step 1: prime –  I applied nivea mens shave balm to smooth my skin and prolong my foundation wear.

step 2: foundation – I wanted to look really pale so I used my lightest foundation josie maran vibrancy foundation.

step 3: powder – I set my whole face with coty airspun powder so that the MUF flash creams would apply easier on top.

step 4: coloring – I mixed together small amounts of the yellow, green, brown, and white from the MUF flash palette on a mixing palette. I used a beauty sponge to apply that shade around my forehead, all over my eyes, and near  my mouth. I just got creative with it and put it wherever I felt would look best. The greenish color wasn’t quite as dark as I wanted. I wanted to look even more sickly and taken over by something so I used some purples and browns from the morphe 35n to deepen up the areas where I had applied the cream.

muf-flash

phantom-morphe-palette

step 5: brows – I filled in my brows with abh taupe dipbrow.

step 6: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 7: false lashes – I used ardell 251 lashes for this look. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 8: lips – I wanted really bright glam lips so I used anastasia electric coral liquid lip for my lipstick.
