MOTD + Pictorial — Magical Mermaid

Heyy my dolls!!

I’m back with a pictorial because you guys really seemed to like these in the past and I had agreed to do at least two each month, so I definitely want to continue this.


The name of this look is just a mix of two shades in the Kathleen Lights x Colourpop Dream St. Palette, ‘Magical‘ and ‘Mermaid Boy‘. For the longest time I wanted to play with the darker shades in this palette and I finally did it. I do plan on putting out more pictorials using this palette as well as other ones I haven’t used in a while, so be on the lookout for those in the future. ❤


Makeup Details:

I’m only showing what I used on the eyes because I didn’t really use anything else on my face, except blush and lipstick.

Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil | Coastal Scents Step 1 Eye Primer | Banana Powder (to set eye primer) | Kathleen Lights x Colourpop Dream St. Palette | Colourpop No Filter Concealer | Essence Kajal Eyeliner Pencil in Black | NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk | Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

As always I try to do pictorials in 8 steps or less. So let’s just get started!

Magical Mermaid Pictorial


Here’s the breakdown:

STEP 1: Prime and set your eyelids.
STEP  2: Apply ‘Magical’ right above crease using a fluffy brush — I do this to create a nice gradient on the crease and as a guide to soften any harsh lines later.
STEP 3: Apply ‘Shooting Star’ to crease and blend upward onto ‘Magical’this shade doesn’t show up as much on this look, but it still gives the crease some depth.
STEP 4: Apply ‘Potion’ on the crease and blend it onto ‘Shooting Star’ for more warmth.
STEP 5: Gently pat ‘Water Bearer’ on the inner corner and outer-v, being careful to follow your crease. Connect inner and outer corners along crease line using a detail brush. Blend edges with a clean blending brush to soften and blend. Note: This step takes longer because you build color slowly, blend, and repeat till desired intensity is reached.
STEP 6: ‘Cut’ the crease but only at the center of your eyelid using the lightest concealer you have. Apply ‘Water Bearer’ around concealer as needed to keep building up the color on the inner and outer corners.
STEP 7: Apply ‘Mermaid Boy’ right on top of the concealed area and keep blending ‘Water Bearer’ and ‘Mermaid Boy’ onto each other to soften harsh lines.
STEP 8: Repeat steps 1 – 4 on the lower lash line, and gently pat ‘Water Bearer’ last. Use ‘Potion’ to soften harsh lines. Use black eyeliner to tightline your upper waterline, and use a white eyeliner on your bottom waterline. TIP: White eyeliner on bottom waterline makes your eyes appear bigger, and it also helped ‘lift’ my eyes because darker shades tend to make your eyes appear droopy.


What do you guys think of this look?
And who else owns this palette and who has already picked up Kathleen’s new Zodiac Palette?
