I Have an Addiction...

Ok, confession time; I have an addiction. It's pretty serious, and it has been going on for a while. Ok.. I'll just say it... My addiction... is to Mermaid Makeup. I just. Can't. Stop. I WON'T stop! I freaking LOVE mermaids. Wish I was one, in fact. Seriously - would be awesome. So, I tend to do mermaid inspired things often. Shimmery, fantasy eyes? Usually inspired by Mermaids. Gradient, sparkly lips? Mermaid scales inspired. That purple hair I used to rock? That shit, was my mermaid hair. Anyway, after a few too many Mermaid makeups I was all "Enough, should probably try something new". So I quit for a while... Well, at least I didn't post them on any social media sites. But then, something great happened! A certain lovely on instagram (heyy @eli_iniguez!!) told me about @glam_sass's contest going on, and what is the theme? FREAKING MERMAIDS, MAN! If ever there was an excuse to get out my netting and cover myself in scales - this was it. So, it happened. And then I sat on my bed for like 2 hours, ate dinner, walked around the house - decked out as a mermaid (at least from the chest up). It was magical, and I hope you enjoy the final product!
Hey, also... Side note, I took photos with & without the lashes because they were reals stiff and I couldn't get them to sit right, but I was super proud of my creations so as if I wasn't going to include them!
