After last episode’s look into some cozy Fall routines and recipes (here), Marta from Caffelatte for Breakfast has thrown a new challenge at us for the fifth episode of the #FallInLoveTAG2. This time we are exploring Fall Trends by taking inspiration from Pantone’s Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016 (here). When Marta told us to do a Pantone Fall Trends 2016 makeup look, I was of course attracted by the yellow, orange, red and green shades, that are my daily comfort zone. In fact, I just recently published a tutorial on a Thanksgiving makeup look using such colors (here).

Welcome back to the blog and another episode of the #FallInLoveTAG2 by Marta from Caffelatte for Breakfast. It’s November and the weather is changing for the worst, so this time we are talking about those rituals for a rainy Sunday afternoon in this episode called Tea & Biscuits.

Mermaid Makeup for Halloween: caught in a net – #FallInLoveTAG2 Ep.3 – Pumpkin

Halloween is a time of slutty costumes and makeup prowess. I don’t really do either (anymore, ehm), but I like that it gives me a kick in the butt to be more adventurous and creative with makeup. There are a lot of great Halloween makeup tutorials on Youtube, so this is not meant to be that. This post is just me sharing my interpretation of a mermaid makeup look and of course she’s caught in a fisherman’s net. The inspiration came from the new ColourPop Opalescent Highlighters (see them here) and the sea of glitter I got recently (here).

This makeup is also my participation to the third episode of the #FallInLoveTAG2 by Caffelatte for Breakfast. Check out the other parts of this tag here and the introduction post with all the prompts here.
