Makeup Utopia's Mermaid-Inspired FOTD Challenge

I'm posting another embarrassing FOTD from a makeup newbie for the sake of documenting my pre-makeup school skill, or lack thereof.

I had so much fun doing the $100 challenge, that I thought I'd try
Makeup Utopia's Mermaid-Inspired FOTD Challenge. Unfortunately, I realised I did not have enough time to create an artistic look, photograph it, wash it off, apply my usual makeup and head out to lunch. So I decided to go on the wearable route (apart from the green eyeshadow I dabbed on my lips that I wiped off before going out.)

After wiping off my "green lipstick", decided to add black mascara:

Products used:
  • Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation

  • By Terry Eclat de Teint (Color Skin Enhancer) in Caramel

  • Australis Ready Set Go Finishing Powder

  • Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Khaki Suede

  • Urban Decay eyeshadow in Graffitti

  • Inouvi eyeshadow in Moss

  • CoverGirl NatureLuxe Water Resistant Mascara in Very Black

  • Estee Lauder Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal Coral


  1. What a great look! Next time you participate in a challenge make sure you post it in the Makeup Utopia forums and you might end up being featured on Makeup Utopia!

    Thanks for participating!

  2. Thank you, Sara-May! I was just feeling a bit shy, but I will next time.
