Romantic Siren

15:25

Hey Beauties!

A few days ago I got a wonderful package from Avon cosmetics - see here. As soon as I got my hands on their Supershock Vivid Liquid Eye Shadows I had an idea to use them in this look. The look was inspired by Kiko's Limited Edition called Midnight Siren. I wanted to use liquid eye shadows to create hypnotizing inviting gaze that sirens should embody. Sirens are mythological beings of the sea. They were said to be beautiful and lured nearby sailors with their music and voices to shipwreck. I find that very interesting and a great idea to recreate for masquerade or Halloween events, if you want to go with something more subtle and romantic. 

I always say that my makeup looks are simple, but this really is. Anyone can do this, no excuses.


I used 7 shades of Avon Supershock Vivid Liquid Eye Shadows. You can use cream eyeshadows or just go with metallic or shimmery powder eyeshadows. It's more about the shades, although I love the metallic effect of these liquid ones. 

I started by applying stark blue silver shadow into the inner corner of the eye. I added light pink a bit more towards the lid. Then I used dark violet in the first part of the lid and left some space in the center. I moved on to the outer part of the eye and used emerald green. I also connected it to the bottom lash line. Then I used gold based olive green in the center. I also added a bit of burgundy shade in the crease to connect dark violet and emerald. I used the same shades on the bottom. 

I didn't really blend these out, because I wanted to keep the intensity. The whole look is more like a painting technique and it's just a lot of shades with metallic finish put on one lid. The messier the better in my opinion. 


I skipped the liner. Instead I used fluttery long natural false lashes and applied them close to the lash line. I put on some mascara and eyes are done. 


For the sake of this being a bit more shimmery and hypnotizing, I also used some nail rhinestones and glued them under the arch of the brows and around the outer corner of the eye. I also used one small one in the inner corner of the eye, to make them pop.  


I used the same liquid eyeshadows on my lips. First I used the emerald green one all over the lips. I also added stark blue silver in the very center of the eye, which created a little ombre. 

You can use cream eyeshadows or lipsticks and go over them with silver and blue powder eyeshadows.


On my face I used foundation, concealer and powder. I also used cream light gold highlighter and heavily highlighted cheeks, on top of brows, nose, Cupid's bow and chin. I went over it with silver powder eyeshadow to intensify it. I used blue shimmery powder eyeshadow to contour sides of my face and nose. I also went over contours and highlights with emerald and silver liquid eyeshadows. Just to get the same color all around the face. 






If you decided to recreate this, you can also wet your hair for a better effect. You can even use oil on your hair. It will give you the same wet effect plus you'll be giving yourself an oil mask for the whole evening - two in one.
