Birthstones: Aquamarine

Sorry for the lack of posts here this past week. It was supposed to be my last job at my trainee job and I was kind of depressed because I really enjoy working there and I didn't want to quit. Then, the last day, I managed to convince the employment agency to let me work for another month. :)

As you will also see I have begun to grow my eyebrows back, but there will be a separate post on this subject soon.

Well, anyway, here is a look that breathes of spring, inspired by March's own birthstone; the aquamarine.

Intending to create something aquatic I played around a bit with Lumi by Sugarpill, and this was the result. I really like how colors like these bring out a teal color in my eyes.

It is very hard to capture the sheer and delicate Lumi in a way that will do it justice. Over NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk it will take the form of a light turquoise and over Black bean as a deeper teal shimmer. I tried to experiment with blur in my pics to get the shimmer to show up but it didn't want to.

For both blush and lips I decided to use cool toned colors. I also painted on a beauty mark and dabbed some Lumi over it to give the look kind of a vintage mermaid feel to it. :) What do you think?

Furthermore, I have been "upgraded" at work. It has been discovered that I have somewhat of a talent for selling stuff (read: makeup) so I got to sell one of the more exclusive brands, which is great. :) It's really fun to sell luxury makeup and skin care!

Anyways, I have some posts planned for this week so I hope I will be able to keep you entertained! I am also planning to do a requested look (Tarja Turunen at Hartwall arena) that will probably be posted next weekend. 

Thank you so much for reading and hope to see you soon!
