Banshee Makeup

The banshees wail can be heard near and far. Many fear the banshee with her ghostly looks and shrilling scream. She merely serves as a warning that death shall follow soon. The banshee is only a messenger nothing more. Hopefully you won't be a banshee any time soon but you can still rock this look! For the upper lid and lower lash line I used Creep and Gunmetal from the Naked Palette. I pulled the shadow down to the inner corner for a dramatic effect. The pink eyeliner was done with Urban Decay eye pencil in the color Woodstock.

The Merfolk Makeup

The merfolk or mermaids are seen on very rare occasions. Some say if you gaze upon these sea creatures it will be your last breath. While mermaids are quite alluring, some say they bring an omen of disaster. Others say that they can give the ability to breathe under water, when fate has been less kind to a drowning human. No matter which tale you believe, one thing is for certain, the mermaid is a ravishing creature. To get this merfolk look I used Laura Geller Forest Mist/Key Lime duo shadow on my upper and lower lid. I used Bling Tone Crystalline Green shadow on outer corner of lid. Then I lined my eyes with gold from MAC's Gilt by Association shadow. Mascara is Too Faced Size Queen Mascara. My nails are painted with OPI Hey! Get in Lime!. The stars were airbrushed by my friend Lou.

The Dark Queen's Makeup

The Dark Queen wears this seductive  look while spreading misery upon the kingdom. Feel free to use it for a night out on the town though. The eyeshadow and liner were done with Sephora's Smoky Eyes Palette. I love these palettes you can see a picture and review here. Mally Volumizing Mascara takes credit for the dark sultry lashes. The nails are Loreal's polish in After Hours. The icy bling at the base is two polishes. Sephora by OPI Indi-go With The Flow and China Glaze Luxe and Lush (Hunger Games collection). Enjoy this truly sinister look.

Blue Polka Dot Nails

I'm in love with this blue from OPI and Sephora. I had to do something fun with it. I just used a wooden cuticle pusher (pointy side) for the dots. Just pour a little on a paper plate and dab it in to create the dots! You can use any colors or do a bunch of brightly colored polka dots. I used a basic black polish and Havana Dreams blue (shown above).

These are the shoes I picked for  the month of April. I love these green heels for Spring! This picture was subconsciously inspired from great photos of my Mom from the 70's.
