People seem to be obsessed with all things fantasy these days, from unicorns to mermaids.  So today’s post will feature the oh so popular mermaid makeup look trend.  Since this look is so fun and colorful, it will be perfect for the upcoming festival season.  If you want to nail the mermaid makeup look, then this is the guide for you, so keep on reading.   Focus On A Flawless Base (image source) Mermaids have a flawless base, always.  Well, we don’t know that for sure, but a flawless base is still going to help you rock this look.  Make sure you start with a good primer, foundation, and then conceal under your eyes and any other blemishes.  Tip: using a wet blending sponge is a good way to get a flawless, sheer finish. Get Your Shimmer On (image source) Mermaids are always beautiful and shimmery, so highlighter is huge for this look.  Give yourself a generous sweep of your favorite highlighter over your cheekbones, and down the center of your nose.  To really up your highlighter game, don’t be afraid to put a small amount of highlighter under the arch of your brow.  So flattering! Choose The Right Colors…

It’s crazy to think that we are already 19 days into the New Year.  Anyway, I was so overwhelmed by the positive feedback I received from my Fashion Trends That Need To Go In 2017 post (if you haven’t read it yet, click here).  After reading all your interesting comments, I decided to write a similar post, this time reflecting on the outrageous beauty trends in 2016 that I hope won’t roll over into 2017.  I know 2016 is now in the past and we should be moving forward, but I can’t help to point out the beauty trends in 2016 that in my opinion were far from glamorous.  Keep on reading for the beauty trends that need to go in 2017. 100 layers challenge          Please tell me you have seen the 100 layers challenge videos on YouTube.  You know, the videos where someone proceeds to layer on absurd amounts of makeup on their face, eyes, lips, and nails.  If you have no idea what I am talking about check out Jenna Marbles 100 layers challenge video.  After watching her apply layers of false eyelashes, tanner, nail polish, foundation, lip color, and hair spray you will be left shocked.…

You will never find me without nail polish on my fingernails. No matter how busy I am, I always find time once a week to paint my nails. Call me weird, but I find sitting down and giving myself a manicure so relaxing. For those who don’t know, I am part of my university’s chapter of Her Campus. According to the Her Campus website, “Her Campus is the #1 global community for college women”. I am very excited to be the style section editor and writer for my campus chapter. As a result of this role, I have received many great opportunities. Being part of Her Campus has definitely sharpened my journalistic skills, but hands down the best part of Her Campus is going to events on my campus that are hosted by many different companies. Not only are these events fun to attend for team bonding but also it allows me to be introduced to new companies and the awesome products they offer. Recently, our Her Campus team hosted a Jamberry nail party, where the brand Jamberry brought their 300+ nail designs to our campus. Ever since being introduced to Jamberry nails my nails have looked so stylish. Jamberry…

No shock here that I have some beauty products that I have been obsessing over. These last couple of weeks, I have been using the new palettes that I got for Christmas. I also feel like many drugstore brands have released new items, so whenever I go to the drugstore I am drawn to the new displays. I love getting new makeup because whenever I use new makeup I feel like a new person. Keep on reading to see the products that I can’t get enough of.  (Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal Camouflage Concealer, Maybelline Color Elixir, Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette, Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette) Once again, Santa listened to me this year. The Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette was one of the makeup items on my Christmas wish list. To my surprise, one of the gifts I opened on Christmas morning was the beautiful Urban Decay palette. Urban Decay never fails to impress me. Ever since receiving this palette, it has played a major role in my daily makeup routine. This palette has a variety of finishes, including matte, satin, sparkle, and metallic. I really like how this palette offers the perfect balance of neutral shades and jewel toned colors.…
