Hello dollies! I'm back with a continuation of the new monthly makeup tag feature I began in January showcasing makeup inspired by the twelve signs of the zodiac. The three bloggers and I who took part in last months Aquarius inspired tag received a lot of great feedback on our looks so thanks so much for reading and commenting, all comments were greatly appreciated! I once again put out a Twitter call looking for fellow makeup loving beauty bloggers to join in with the tag, unfortunately no one was willing to take up the challenge but I was delighted when the lovely ladies Leanne and Hanna agreed to take part again. If anyone else feels inspired to take part in our monthly makeup tag then don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
As February is largely taken up by the star sign Pisces - the fish, we decided to continue with that sign.
The first look comes from Leanne who blogs at Rants, Raves and Rambles. I love the eye shadow colours Leanne used for her look, they are stunning!
When asked what inspired her to create this look to demonstrate Pisces Leanne said - "I had a lot of fun with this one! I know that Pisces is represented by the two fish and is a water sign, but I didn’t want to use blue and purples again. Instead, I decided to use teal and green. I used a bright green in the inner corners, a spring green over the lid and a teal in the outer corners and the crease, with a tiny bit of bright blue. I blended these so they gave a gradient effect. I then lined the upper lash-line with black and, here’s the fun part, I flicked it out at the end and made it look like a little fish tail! I finished the look off with a shimmery pink blush and sparkly pink lipstick".
The products Leanne used were -
Revlon ColourStay Foundtion in 110 Ivory
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1 Fair
Collection Sheer Loose Powder in 2 Translucent
Illamasqua Powder Blush in Morale
Sleek Ultra Matte Palette V1 Brights (Bright Green and Blue)
MAC Eyeshadow in Surf USA (Surf Baby Collection)
MAC Eyeshadow in Sunny Spot
Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (Black)
Benefit BADGal Lash Mascara (Black)
MUA Lipstick in Shade 2
The second look comes from Hanna who blogs at Makeup by Hanna.
Hanna is like my new makeup inspiration guru, I love every look she creates on her blog, they are absolutely amazing and this look is no exception!
When asked what inspired her to create this Pisces look Hanna said - "Reading about Pisces made me want to do something that's dreamy and reminds me of being under water. and I knew right away I wanted the look to have scales on it :)!! I also Googled the colours of Pisces and seafoam green and mint were the colours I found most".
The products Hanna used were -
Lime Crime: citreuse, quill and blue milk eyeliners, parasol, lotus noir and atlanteal eyeshadows, Sugarpill: darling and lumi eyeshadows, Fyrinnae: glitterboi eyeshadow and pixie epoxy, Urban Decay primer potion.
The final look comes from little old me and if you didn't know this is my blog, thanks for stopping by and reading!
My inspiration for this Pisces look came from a card I have which is Pisces themed and it is so magical. The colours I used were light blue, dark blue and dark green to represent the colours of the ocean. The four shadows I used all have a shimmery effect which to me represented the sun reflecting off the water. Also I'm a Pisces born March 9th and these are some of my favourite colours all in one makeup look!
The products I used were L'Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation. MAC powder blusher in 'Gentle'. MAC Mineralise Eye Shadow in 'Sea & Sky' and 'Smutty Green'. Sleek True Colour Lipstick in 'Amethyst'. MUA 'Undressed' Palette. MAC Eye Brow Pencil in 'Dirty Blonde'. Benefit 'They're Real!' Mascara. GOSH Liquid Eyeliner in 'Black'.
I love how everyone interpreted the star sign of Pisces in a different way! These types of makeup tags really allow for creativity and every ones own personal take on what something symbolises to them, that's why I love taking part in them. Thanks so much to Hanna and Leanne for taking part and I hope they'll take part in next months Aries inspired makeup feature. Remember, if you'd like to join us then please email me for details. It's really fun creating these looks and it's great to see what everyone else comes up with too.
Stay pretty people!
