At the weekend I played around with an eyeshadow set I’d never used before and decided to go for an edgier look.
Starting with my eye makeup, I used Makeup Addiction’s Flaming Love palette, which I’ll do a full review on in the future.
I applied the vibrant and bold shade Belize across my whole lid. It’s a really beautiful metallic turquoise and very highly pigmented.
In the outer corner I applied a small amount of the shade Amethyst, which is a gorgeous jewel toned purple. I blended the two shades together and found it created a very bold, mermaid-esque look. Depending on the lighting, I could see different shades of blue, green and purple and I think the colours in the Flaming Love palette are stunning.
As I wanted my eyeshadow to be the focal point of my makeup, I wore Benefit’s Dandelion lip gloss in the clear peachy shade Ultra Plush.
I often wear my hair down, but I decided to wear a half-up, half-down style to show off my makeup.
Moving on to my clothes. I chose a loose fitting dress that I bought quite some time ago. It’s super comfortable and has a pretty lace detailing at the top. As the weather is still pretty cold, I teamed it with black tights and a pair of black ankle boots. I bought these in Asda last year and they still often carry similar pairs.
As for jewellery, I wore a choker and a black string necklace with a gemstone heart. Again I bought both of these last year, but Primark still sell similar necklaces.
This ring is one of my absolute favourites as it’s a large stand out piece that works well with most outfits. I got this made in Malta last year by a Silversmith.
And finally on to my nail polish. I’m wearing one of Barry M’s Molten Metal Nail Paints in the shade Gold Digger.
So that’s my Grungy Mermaid look. Let me know if you liked it.
