Beauty and the Beach 2 is back, I received the email telling me about it a while ago and being in my bummed out state, it was an opportunity to continue to get out of my make-up rut, after some things have YET to arrive I changed my designs around last minute today after Mr postman delivered me nothing :(
I began working on it today and during me working on it was tagged by my lovely friend Annie from EpiphannieA.
Mixing together some sunscreen with my cream, I use this as my base making sure that my skin is protected underneath all layers whether it's day or night, next applying a thin layer of primer onto my face. Using my buffer brush, I buff the foundation into my skin, giving it a nice even base and due to the foundations properties to give a nice glow it's perfect to bring out any bronze tones happening. Apply a little blush on the apples upwards.
Sleek MakeUP Sunset Palette, MAC Big T eyeshadow, MAC Electric EEL eyeshadow, Illamasqua Eyeliner, Stargazer Eye Dust #2 and False Eyelashes.
Taking the orange from the Sunset Palette, apply into the centre of the lid, taking the yellow/gold shade apply to the inner corner and blend into the orange. The reddish tone is lightly applied to the outer corner and blended out. MAC EEL is used on the lower lash outer corner brought inwards to about the iris, MAC Big T is then applied to the rest of the lower lash. Stargazer eye dust is mixed to make an eyeliner, winged out and a black pencil onto my water line, lashes applied, some mascara on the bottom - viola.
Illasmasqua Lipstick in Obey & AVON Plump Pout in Nude.
Illamasqua Obey is applied but due to it being a matte and quite dryer a lip gloss is needed to give it , that finish sleek look.
I took my eye inspiration from some tropical birds (again!) Got to love the birds we don't get to see in the UK that are so mesmerizing. Using the oranges, blues and the burnt orange / red from the beaks.
Sinful Colors "Mint Apple", Sally Hansen Insta-Dri "Mint Sprint", H&M "No Mambo Jambo", Sinful Colors "Nail Junkie" and Born Pretty Hexagon Nail Art.
A few weeks ago I did order the Mash Nails Stamping Plate but it was yet to arrive so I changed my design. I decided to continue to do my light gradient effect with glitter at the bottom but one nail to have the appearance of the scales of the mermaid tail.
Inspired by a Mermaids tail, the love of mythical creatures and I especially when I was younger I wanted to be a mermaid (you, read right!)
A braided do, forever my holiday go to, I just want my hair out the way and plus it's easier to go from day to night as there's not much fuss left, it can always be decorated with clips from a day to night look. The front of the hair has a little quiff that is then back combed, smoothed down slightly, using a few grips pinned. Gathering the rest of the hair up, a braid is started and it doesn't matter if it's tidy, were going for different plait effects. Selena Gomez was my hairspiration for this look. Such a rock but beach look!
So being last minute - eek. If you ladies have a spare moment tomorrow, check out this page & do all three looks or one of the three!
