Hey Everyone!

For this week's look I was inspired by a very talented man and his creations.  If you have not had a chance to visit the wonder that is, please do!! Eric Ducharme is an incredibly talented man who creates mermaid tails for those of us who weren't born with one, and lucky for me, my friend Robbie has promised to get me one for my birthday!! Ahhhh!!! (Unless she already has it and is just waiting to surprise me!!) ;-)  (I'm pretty sure she's going to kill me now.)

After going through his gallery of amazing photos a million times, I've learned that mermaids come in every color combination you can imagine.  And while it was difficult to pick which colors I wanted to use for this look, I ended up going with these.  Check it out!

Amazing, isn't she?? It takes my breath away every time I see her!

Here are the tools used:


♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to lid
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked from brow bone to crease
♥ Nyx Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadow in Lime Pearl to inner corner
♥ Nyx Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadow in Grass Pearl to center of lid
♥ Nyx Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadow in Turquoise Pearl to center edge of lid
♥ Nyx Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadow in Ocean Blue Pearl to outer corner
♥ Urban Decay Moondust Shadow in Zodiac to outer V and lower lash line
This is really multidimensional and sparkly!
♥ Nyx Ultra Pearl Mania loose shadow in Yellow Pearl to inner corner of lower lash line
♥ Black eyeliner applied to lash and water line
♥ Black mascara
♥ My fave pair of Red Cherry lashes: 523's


♥ Nyx blush in Amber

♥ Nyx Round Lip Gloss in Kiss

I am thrilled that I've been able to live out my mermaid fantasy through makeup, and now I've just got to get me one of those tails!! :-)

Thanks so much for visiting! I truly love it when you do! :-) 

I hope you have a wonderful and blessed week :-)
