Thanks to the Sephora Ariel Palette, I was inspired to create a look based on the palette. But then I thought, why just make it tailored to that palette, but encompass multiple looks into it as well. Thus, I came up with this look.

Inspired by Lady Gaga's hair and District Four from the Hunger Games, I created the perfect mermaid look for Halloween or any kind of themed event.
Check out the video below to see how I did the make-up.

Swavorski Rhinestones from Artbeads
Glass Pearls from Michaels
Craft Seashells from Michaels
Tulip Body Glue from Michaels
Alice in Wonderland Palette by Urban Decay
Telescopic Mascara by L'oreal
Cosmetics from Victoria's Secret
Four Shadow Palette by MAC Cosmetics
Viva Glam Gaga by MAC Cosmetics
Acne Solutions Clearing Solution by Clinique
Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder by Clinique
Foundation by MAC Cosmetics

The make up colors were chosen to recreate a sandy beach while giving an airy, mystical-like glow hence there are no harsh lines in the design. Any colors would work, I just personally like these. Good luck!

Sephora's Ariel Palette

I adore this palette! The colors are gorgeous! Whenever there's a collaboration with Disney for any make up brand the products are fantastic. Check out the video above!

Seriously, though, I want to see the Jasmine Palette! I've heard they're also making a Cinderella Palette as well. Ah! So much to look forward to!

Homecoming Dress Shopping at Windsor!

Dress #1
I LOVE BLUE! As if you couldn't tell already with my blue hair, but there's something about a dark blue that makes things so pretty. Like this dress. Showing off the back always appeared elegant to me so this V back opening is not too sexy while showing a little off, but still classy. Drapey/peacock earrings and bangles would perfect accessorize this as well
I couldn't find the actual link to this dress but here is a similar one. Silver colored shoes would bring out the sequins of the upper part of this dress.

Dress #2
Perfect for mermaid related events! I would totally pair it with a tiara and for those of you who get nominated, this would be your dress. You can wear the tiara and not look to flaunty. Shelled accessories would bring out the mermaid look. Honestly, I would wear my Damsels or Nightwalk Lita's with this dress.
Dress #3
If you're daring enough to wear red, I really like this one. Because red is already a bold color, the simpleness of this dress is very nice. The dress I tried on had gold detailing but the one in the link appears to be silver, so whichever color it is for you, matching it with the same accessories would work. Nude or black heels would probably be best.
Dress #4
FAVORITE ONE YET! This one totally caught my eye when I was looking for dresses and the best part about it is that is has straps! No need to worry about anything falling down. Champagne doesn't work for all skin type unfortunately, and I was afraid that it would blend too much with my skin, but it was not an issue. This dress comes in other colors without the glitter/sparkle so it's more muted, but I adore the champagne with the glitter. I would wear mint or red heels with this dress and accessories to match the heels or any metallic colors.

RiRi Woo MAC Lipstick Review

Yes all the reviews are accurate. This lipstick is great in every aspect in terms of color, long lasting wear, and texture. I tend to like Matte lipsticks so this is one is perfect to add to your collection. I've been using Russian Red prior to buying RiRi Woo and I must say this has become my favorite lipstick after one wear. The color is very bold and very red. It lasts up to 8 hours with eating and drinking so reapplying isn't really necessary. If you leave it on over night, the outlining of your lipstick will remain intact if that's any consolation. I applied chapstick prior to putting on the lipstick which may or may not have enhanced it's longevity. Because it's matte it's harder to move around on the lips so putting chapstick on makes it a little easier to apply. Definitely a must by if you have the chance.

Have a good week!

Ion Color Brilliance | Teal Review

I retouched my blue and ended up using Teal for underneath since I ran out of Sky Blue dye. If going for an aqua color and choosing between the Aqua and Teal dye, go for the Teal. It's been in for 2 weeks now and it hasn't changed colors quite yet but barely entering it's green stage. I left the dye in over night with a shower cap and maybe that enhanced the colors all around. Definitely buy more than less boxes of dye when using any of the blue colors because it will be quite evident when you miss a spot on your head. The teal is more pigmented and has less of a contrast compared to sky blue and blends better.

Hope your weekend's been well.
