FOTD & Tutorial: Mermaid Look #2- Sour Apple, Ransom, and Violet

.

So why #2? Because there's a #1! CLICK HERE for Mermaid Look #1...

So here is a look I did on Saturday, I actually liked it and I personally think this is one of the best looks i've done...my best friend loved it too when we had lunch on Saturday because she said it's not too crazy and definitely wearable.

I came up with this look because I really wanted to use "Sour Apple" as it has been sitting in my sample drawer for quite some time, and as soon as I started I just knew what colors I wanted to use.

*ALL COLORS APPLIED WET (Except for UD "Ransom")

I used Pure Luxe e/s in "Sour Apple", UD "Ransom" on Outer-V, and MAC "Violet" Pigment on contour.



I look fat and weird...lol.






What I used:
Face:
- Pure Luxe Eraser (as primer)
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer NC 30
- Silk Naturals Foundation

Cheeks:

- MAC Fafi Blush "Fashion Frenzy"
- MAC MSF in "Global Glow" as highlight

Eyes:
- MAC PP in "Soft Ochre" all over the lid up to brow bone
- Pure Luxe e/s in "Sour Apple" applied WET on lower half of the lid just above the crease and lower lashline
- MAC "Violet" Pigment applied slightly wet on contour and lower lashline
- Urban Decay e/s in "Ransom" on Outer-V only
- MAC "Vanilla" Pigment as highlight
- MAC Fluidline in "Nightfish"
- L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara

Lips:

- MAC Mattene l/s in "Immodest"
- MAC "Negligee" Lipglass





Should look like this:











***Don't worry if eyeshadow gets in your eyelashes, a few coats of mascara on the top and bottom of your lashes should fix this.

Should look like this by now...





Apply highlight of your choice and BLEND that sucker to soften harsh lines, mesh the colors, whichever you want...






You can use black eyeliner for the lower lashline, I personally hate lining the lower lashline with black eyeliner because it's too dark for my light skin and it gets in my eyes, so I usually opt for a slate/charcoal grey...

Jenny said...

LOVE this look!! I love how the blending! Sour Apple looks awesome.

e said...

OOooooh! Sour Apple is so pretty! Did you get any of the other gumball pigments? I want them all but I'm sort of afraid of how bright they are, but they look totally wearable on you. Hmmm, I might have to pick them up.

krstylkleer said...

Beautiful! I wish I had the guts to wear something like this! Kudos! :]

Piece of Cake said...

Gosh! Those colors are totally amazing. I always love green and purple combo. I love both of those color separately, but never have the guts to actually apply/wear them together. Love your blog btw. Great tuts.

alien man?! said...

You put the colors together so beautifully. Try as I might, I can't seem to pull off such bright and vivid colors as well as you do!

christy. said...

Oh mama, this look is fab! :) Really matches your skin tone. You really are the makeup queen <3 haha

ladystarr said...

wow! sooo pretty! the sour apple matches ur top so well =)

Emilee @ GMM said...

I love this color combo! Great job, Nessa! It looks beautiful on you. :)

Beauty Review said...

Thank you so much about the brushes. I love my EoB brushes, but they are so hard to store.
You look gorgeous my dear. I love that UD pallet. I bought it right when I saw it. I am a sucker for bright colored things.

Bliss said...

This is such a gorgeous look on you,the colour combo is fabulous, just beautiful :)

itsjustme said...

Love this look! Wish I was ballsy enough to wear it! lol

serenity. said...

very gorgeous! i want to try emulating that look sometime soon. i need to use my pure luxe products soon. they've just been sitting in my drawer. :)

said...

i love look #1 better (only because i love brighter makeup) but both are sooo fab! and you're right, look #2 is actually wearable even though they are bright colors. yey, you used pure luxe eraser! you are convincing me to order this one too!!! LOL.

Mulzanza said...

Oooh love those colors! and I love how that green matches your shirt perfectly!

D said...

Hey Vanessa...I always struggle with blending b/c i feel I either muddy up the colors or end up with 2 out of the 3 or 4 colors I used in my look that actually show threw!?? Can you please do a tutorial/video on how to properly blend? for example: do you put a highlighter color over the entire lid to brow bone then blend? do you only blend out harsh lines? do you blend all the eye shadows together then highlight? basically what is the proper way to blend into a beautiful gradient without muddying up the colors as you do so well in all your FOTD's? Thanks a mill!

aznfayeth said...

Wow, it looks awesome. I agree with you that it's one of your best looks so far. Your blog has become my favorite makeup blog, better than asianbeautyblog and makeupforlife!

Mrs. Lynne, MakeupFix.net said...

I love it! And it does remind me of a mermaid.

Izar said...

Oooh, you're so color co-ordinated here! Everything matches! Your makeup is stunning as usual and that rich green top is beautiful!
