100 Days of Makeup Finale

Hi guys!

I can’t believe that we’re finally at the end of this challenge! Boy has it been a ride! So because last week was Halloween week on my blog, I wasn’t able to post looks 86-92 on monday, like I would have. So in this post, I’ll be sharing those looks, as well as any looks that came after Halloween week, to bring us to the end of this challenge! I hope that you enjoy the last looks!

Favourite Makeup at the 88th Academy Awards

Hey guys!

It’s highly likely that you’ve heard that the 88th Academy Awards were on a few days ago and you no doubt heard that Leonardo DiCaprio finally won his Oscar for his role in the movie Revenant. Today I thought I’d share my favourite makeup looks from the awards because some people REALLY killed it this year and I just have to share that on my blog. I also wanted to let you know that my Bloggers United post is coming, hopefully this friday, but it is going to be a really big post and I’m waiting on some photos so it’ll come, don’t you worry. On to the looks!

NYX FACE Awards: Mermaids Mermen

Hey guys!

I’m a little late with this post, I didn’t have a whole lot of time in the break to do much as far as ‘creative’ makeup goes so I wasn’t able to get this up on time but I have it here now and I hope that you enjoy!

So the theme of this challenge was Mermaids and Mermen and I did think about possibly doing a merman makeup look but then I had some other ideas and yeah. I actually was set on doing something completely different to what I ended up with! Today, I will be sharing with you my Futuristic – Galaxy Mermaid.

18

When I originally thought about it, I wanted to do a galaxy pattern on my forehead or around my eyes like a bit of a mask and incorporate bubble stars around my head but then I kinda felt like it had been done before so I thought, what about a mermaid from the future, a world where technology has really taken over and I thought it would be cool to do something natural in an unnatural setting. Well as natural as a mermaid can be, anyway. I don’t know if this is a totally original idea, I’m sure someone has thought about it before. I was heavily inspired by the Monster High doll Elle Eedee. She’s a robot and she’s going to be in the new Boo York Boo York movie and she’s definitely my favourite of the new dolls. I was even considering drawing on her little power button that sits between her eyebrows but I didn’t want to make a robot mermaid look so I stayed away from that.

So for the eyes, I went a little bit out of my comfort zone but still not very far. Honestly, I’d really like to do something really really wild but I get so nervous that I’ll just destroy what I’ve created so I don’t stray too far out of what I know that I’m capable of. I did a sort of halo eye look. I’m still not too certain about what qualifies as a halo eye but you’ll know when you see it. I just kept building shadows on top of each other, starting with the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, a few Inglot eyeshadows and Ice Queen from Makeup Geek.

I still added dots that are meant to represent stars in my dark purple eyeshadow. I wanted a little galaxy flavour haha. And a line of white liner that runs from my water line out to a wing for the ‘Milky Way’ haha. In the centre of my lid I used NYX roll on shimmer in Platinum to make my eyelids pop and sparkle. I also used it on my inner corner, there was so much glitter going on. In the future, glitter will always be on trend.

19

It doesn’t show up much in the photos but I do have some purple side burns because I tried to contour with purple and it basically looked like a line of zinc had been drawn on my face and I couldn’t blend it out for the life of me but it didn’t really hinder any photos so I suppose it wasn’t a total failure.

17

I think that in this world, humans know about the mermaids because it’s hard to hide anything with people recording everything that they see and documenting life with such ease. With the world forever changing and creatures forever adapting, merfolk can now switch between their fishy tail and a nice set of legs so that they can live in either environment. You wouldn’t be able to tell who’s a merperson either because everyone has gone all Capitol and everyone wears crazy makeup and dresses up because everyone is creative and likes to express themselves.

I hope that you enjoyed this post and hopefully with the next challenge, I can really push myself to be as creative as possible. I hope that you have a fantastic day!

MOTD: Ain’t It Fun

I’m kinda late to the party on this but I recently watched Paramore’s Ain’t It Fun music video and I fell in love with Hayley Williams’ makeup! The specific makeup that I’m doing is from the scenes when she’s in the car. I’ve loved this song since it came out so I thought it was time to do the makeup for this!

Here is the video if you want to watch it!

And here is my version of the look!

I didn’t have any flat crystals so I suppose this isn’t 100% accurate, plus there needs to be two crystals on the outer eye but my gem things were so big that I didn’t want to put on another one. This look is super simple and I think it is really easy to recreate. I kinda wish that I had a wig that is closer to her current hair but this was all I had!

Hope you enjoyed this look!

Celebrating 91 years of the Walt Disney Company!

Disney is such a large part of my life and because of this, today is one of the most important days of the year. To celebrate 91 years of Disney goodness, I have decided to produce makeup looks based on my favourite characters! I’ve already dressed up as a few of the characters in the past, so there will be a few older photos but for the most part, I will be creating these from scratch.

From the oldest animated Disney movie to the newest, here are my Disney looks:

I had a lot of fun making these! I can make separate posts if people are interested in knowing how anything is done or what products were used.

Hope you enjoy Disney Day!
