    Raina's Makeup

    I'm always getting asked about my makeup, so I'm going to go through my stuff and show you in a series of posts what I use and what I find to be reliable.







    This was my gig today and for the gig I wanted to try and match my tail as much as I could.

    Products used:


    Make up forever Aqua cream in yellow gold shimmer on my eyes, and soft copper for contouring on my eyes
    same thing in warm brown shimmer on my cheeks. Gold shimmer used on lips

    Make up forever aqua smokey lash

    The sticky gems are just stickers, I use them all the time you can buy em at any craft store. Now special glue or anything. I just stick em on and go.

    Eye makeup is

    Disney Collection Ariel Eyeshadow Pallette

    Cheeks are:
    clinique blush, they no longer make the blush I use, but this is close enough


    though it's not water proof I find it does stay on in the water if I apply it dark enough

    Mascara is:
    clinique high impact mascara

    http://www.sephora.com/product/produ...questid=118168

    Foundation is:

    with a light powder over top

    Lips are

    in watermelon colour

    Lovely reference!
    Do you need to set your foundation, or does it stay on in the water?

    Thanks so much for this post, it's very helpful. Love your golden look from the recent gig! So you used the eye pigment cream as a lipstick? Did you have to do anything special to it or your lips first, or just brush on and go?

    I dont bother with foundation in the water. Nothing stays on.

    Raina that was really helpful! I've gone through threads on makeup but it really helped to see pictures of the product and what it looked like on a mermaid
