Second Entry for Mizz Worthy/Muse/Illamasqua

My second entry for this competition is Nadiah, a member of the elusive Naiads (Naiades) who are faeries/nymphs of bodies of fresh water and are one of the three main classes of water nymphs.  Nadiah was captured from Derwentwater and taken by a traveling circus master, kept in captivity for over a century and made to perform as “The Mermaid Girl” in every show and every town. The ring masters changed, acts came and went, but Nadiah remained captive and miserable. When performing once again in Keswick Nadiah made a daring escape, killing her ring master in the process, and made her way into Derwentwater. But Naiads only live as long as their body of water does. If that dries up the fairy dies with it. So now Nadiah plots and schemes in hopes of finding the fabled Elixer Of Life in order to live forever and take her revenge on any mortal who dares swim in her waters. Revenge for the captivity. Rrevenge for all the pointing and staring. Sweet revenge!





I pretty much used the same products as last time but included my Collection 2000 Trio of blue colours with some use from the Claire’s Accessories set. The mascara is from Avon and the gems are from the craft shop down the road :-)
What do you think? :-)

Entry for Illamasqua/Muse/Mizz Worthy Competition

I mentioned recently that there are some make-up competitions at the moment and that I was going to give them a go. Well, here’s entry number one :-)


Aine is a dreamlike fairie queen, able to enter the dreams of mortals and bring peace and joy. Turned bitter over centuries of delving into the subconscious minds of mortals and seeing fear, anger and hatred everywhere, Aine now walks the dreamlands turning dreams into nightmares only coming to the mortal realms on rare occasions. As her life span is coming close to it’s natural end, Aine has set her sights on discovering ever lasting life and controlling the dreamlands forever!

(I wanted to incorporate the pretty, glittery aspect of her with the dark and angry aspect which is why I gave her both crystals and dark swirling scars. Although she has turned to the Dark Arts she still has both sides warring inside her soul and she shows physical manifestations of each.)

( I actually used a lot more shimmer on my face than it looks like, but I guess thats just a lesson learnt for photographic makeup. My kit is still very limited so all I had for this look was a  Collection 2000 eyeshadow trio (24 Alchemy) and a set from Claire’s Accessories. The gems were from the local craft shop and my lips I outlined with black eyeliner (no lipliner so I imprevised) then Max Factor Blackcurrant around the edge with Estee Lauder Pure Color (161 Pink Parfait) in the centre and all blended inwards to create a “stained berry” lip look. Cheeks are a blend of ColourWorks powder blush on the apples, Claire’s blush up the cheekbones and silver eyeshadow to contour :-) )

So, what do you think?
