EOTD: Mermaid Teal...

I'm sure any eye makeup fanatic gets excited when they score a new palette - I certainly do, but I'm also thrilled when I rediscover an old love, and then combine it with some new treasures, and this is precisely what happened today   I had a major hankering for a mermaidesque theme, having been inspired by my most recent (weekend) purchase, Australis Cray for Colour Eyeshadow Stick  in the shade Fields of Dreams...


It's a stunning wind up chubby pencil in a shimmery oceanic blue-green, and when I swatched it on the back of my hand, I had to use my most powerful waterproof eye makeup remover to take it off - score! So I used this as my base, and then dug through my drawers for something to lay down over the top, something that wouldn't smother its heavenly gleam, but rather enhance the whole effect. Voila! Revlon Diamond Lust in Neptune Star, the most fabulous glimmery sparkly powder that I've sadly hit pan on (in the middle) because I've had it for so long...
Well this was an inspired pairing if I do say so my self ♥ Neither of them overpowered the other - instead they worked together to bring out their best. I then added a sweep of MUA Cosmetics Platinum on the inner corner, Sleek Orbit in the crease and underneath, and lined the waterline with Chi Chi Cosmetics Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Caribbean Queen...


I just adore teal - it's one of my all time favourite hues for eyes, hard to beat, and always makes me think of Summers by the Sea...


Have you rediscovered a new makeup love recently?

Take care of you,

  5. Stunning intensity. I've been trying to buy Australian more often, I love Australis but I haven't tried their Crays. When I can't get a tester off my hand, that's when I know I'm on to something good too. I love long-lasting products. I'm going to check out Crays. It looks great!

    1. Yeah I reckon I might pick up the other ones in the range, 5 altogether I think, or at least that's all my local store had. I'm a nutter for anything that goes the extra mile too xxx
