FOTD: Inspired by Ariel

12 Jun

When I was a little girl, I was obsessed with The Little Mermaid! I had my own VHS to take to daycare so we could watch it after school & everything! My friend’s 4 yr old niece is having an “Under the Sea” themed birthday party this summer, so I asked her what child born since the millennium knows about Ariel & friends?!? She told me that Disney re-released this movie. Ummm…YAY! I’m elated at the prospect of showing one of my childhood favorites to my (future) children on DVD… although my mother does still have that old VHS, just in case! LOL

You know those days when you walk into your closet & feel like you have nothing to wear? Well this was one of those days for me. When I’m feeling this way, I usually end up doing my makeup first, then choosing an outfit & that’s exactly what I did today. The base color for this FOTD is a frost-finish, iridescent, aqua-colored eyeshadow by CoverGirl called Aqua Paradise. The green/aqua blue color shift of this shadow reminds me of fish scales (or in Ariel’s case, mermaid scales). To mimic her ginger-toned hair, I mixed orange & red eyeshadows from my Shany 120 palette & applied that to my crease. Keep reading for the rest of the details…

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Rocky Mountain Green (lower lid)

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower lid in Aqua Paradise (CoverGirl).  I applied matte orange & red e/s from the Shany 120 palette to my crease, dark brown to deepen my outer v, matte camel on my browbone & matte off white to highlight my tearducts (all from the WNW Vanity palette).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline with WetnWild cream eyeliner in black. On my waterline I used WetNWild eyeliner pencil in turquoise & turquoise-colored e/s from Shany 120 palette.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey (8305B)

LIPS: Carmex + Estee Lauder lip gloss in Rose
