I Was A MermaidFriday, January 04, 2013
“I'm always happy when I'm surrounded by water, I think I'm a Mermaid or I was a mermaid. The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective… it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you’ve been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.” - Beyonce
And I always feel the same way. In a few days, I will be going to La Union and I'm thrilled to be under the sun again and to see blue things. I love water, and it is my favorite element in the world.

So I decided to make my eyes inspired by sirens or mermaids - and especially with the contact lenses from @ilusparklecontactlens with its lovely color, print and big size. I used the ocean blue color for the eye shadow and gradated it a bit to reflect its dimension
I used blue and green high-shimmer pigments on the lids and used a more sparkling powder at the top to create a 3D wet effect. As always, don't forget to put white eyeliner, mascara and even falsies to make eyes extra big.
And then I placed a jade green eyeliner on top to put a dimension.
Well, speaking of Mermaid, Deborah Lippman launched a new collection that is inspired by the ocean as well. I super like it and will share with you next a review!
