Spring 2009: Mermaid eye look

by Bionic Beauty on 03.Feb.2009 · 5 comments

Of course I’m not dressing up like a mermaid but this eyeshadow look reminded me of seashells and mermaids. So that’s what I called it.

It’s very simple to create and I got quite a few compliments through the day!

Pink, bronze and green spring eyeshadow look

I used…

  • L’Oreal HIP eye shadow pigment in Tenacious (848)
  • Spell Cosmetics shadow mineral pigment in Citron (bright lime green)
  • Spell Cosmetics shadow mineral pigment in Aurora (bright purple with blue undertones)
  • Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Mascara in Black

I’m including a photo of the shadows I used so you can use substitutes from your own makeup collection. I really do recommend the Spell shadows though. They are fun and bright!

Pink, bronze and green spring eyeshadow look

Coat entire eyelid lightly with Aurora. Even though this color is bright, I blended it out until it was more of a purple wash.

Citron goes on the outer half of your eyelid. Don’t worry about the line between the colors. We’ll cover that up in a second.

Pink, bronze and green spring eyeshadow look

In the middle of your lid, where the purple and green meet, use the HIP Tenacious. This copper color brings the two together and adds a ton of shine. If you’d like, use Tenacious to line your lower lash line.

Apply your mascara and done! What do you think of the look? Is this something you would wear for Spring?

Veronica & Deanna, Thanks ladies!! It was a really fun look to wear out. Especially since we got some chilly weather… made me feel like spring is within reach.

Cool, I didn’t realize that Loreal HIP had such awesome colors!
