Guest Post by Phyrra - Mermaid Medley

Since I am on a plane today on my way to visit family in MA! VACATION! WAHOO! It is going to be the best vacay EVER! We get to see family, we get to meet culties! OMG - can you ask for anything more? 

I am seriously going to TRY to blog while home. I really am. I know I have been slacking lately. But to pick up my slack, what better than a blog post from the amazing Phyrra! She is doing a coordinating nails & face look. And the best part - if you want to see the tutorial on her eye look, she included a link to the how to on her blog! WAHOO! 

Thank you so much Phyrra for hooking my readers up! 

Hi there! Some of you may know me as Phyrra. I wanted to do a fun eye makeup look with a coordinating mani. I started with the nails and ended up with a medley of teal shades.

Nails (All Cult Nails Colors)
Thumb - Nevermore
Ring - Hypnotize Me on top of Nevermore
Middle - Hypnotize Me on top of Let Me Fly
Index - Always Winning on top of Let Me Fly
Thumb - Always Winning on top of Feelin' Froggy

So to coordinate with the nails, I came up with the following makeup look.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Lemon Drop
BftE Ying Yang - inner v, inner lower lid
BftE Caribbean - middle of lid, middle of lower lid, lower crease
BftE Gem (with MAC Fix+) - outer v, outer lid, outer lower lid, later blended through crease
BftE Mermaid - upper crease
BftE Butt Naked - browbone and inner corners of eye
BftE My Pretty - outer crease to deepen
Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure Opal (with MAC Fix+) - lid and lower lid
Too Faced 3 Way Liner - upper and lower lash line, cat eye
Sugarpill Lashes
Nyx Retractable Turquoise Blue Liner - lower waterline
Anastasia Caramel Tinted Brow Gel
LashControl Volumizing Mascara

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in .5
Benefit Bella Bamba - blush
Urban Decay Moonshine - highlight

Revlon lipbalm stain in Sweetheart
Venomous Cosmetics Flamingo gloss
MAC Gloss in Sugarrimmed

I even did  a tutorial for this look over at my blog if you're interested. Thanks to Maria for allowing me to do a guest post!


  1. Love the coordinated look :-) I've never done my eye makeup to match my nails, but it's a really cool idea!
