The World of Faerie: The Undine





Undines used to be the terrors of the water. Before the mermaid or siren they were luring handsome sailors to their dooms. Now Undines stay silent, brushing their hair, cooing at the beautiful boys who come near the water. They have become pacified by time. They are different from Nixie's and mermaids because they don't have tails or wings though they are a water spirit. They are unusually tall with pale skin and transparent blonde, green or blue hair. Undines usually live up to the North in fresh water lakes. Arthurian legend suggests the Lady of the Lake was an Undine. (Undine was also one of the Monsters in MonsterRanchers btw. I remember cause she was my favorite in the show besides Mochi.)
What I used:
Face-
NYX Jumbo e/s pencil in Milk (Around the eyes and cheeks.)
Hot Topic White Face Powder
Stick on Jems
120 Palette Blue (On the cheek bones; badly.)
Nyx Blush in Pinky

Eyes-
Nyx Jumbo e/s pencil in Milk
120 Palette
-Navy-ish blue (Used to cut the crease)
-Brighter blue (Over the navy blue to brighten color also used on the lower lash.)
-Bright green (Used on the last third of the lid.)
-Softer bright green (Used in the middle of the lid and lower lash.)
-Soft pale aqua (Used on the inner corner of the lid and lower lash.)
Milani eyeliner in black
Cover Girl Lash Blast Muscuuura
Nyx Jumbo eyeshadow Pencil (To Highlight.)
Eyebrows smoothed upwards with a glue stick
Wet N Wild purple eyeliner pencil (Used to outline the eyebrows.)
Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter in Distortion ( Used on the inner part of the lower lash line, on the cheeks and used to highlight the eyebrows.)

Lips-
Evil Shades Lipstick in Fiendish

Alright I'm not sure I completely love this look. The eyebrows were a total fail and I the one spot on my lip never covers up when I use lipstick that's any other color then "Tea Rose." Mermaid or water fairies will be tough to do since most I imagine have blue or green lips. *shakes fist at lips* Hopefully I'll figure out how to work blue lips soon. I think I'm going to try concealing my lips next time.

  6. Booo to your "eyebrows were a total fail." I like them - for some reason, even though I know eyebrows wouldn't actually do this underwater, they make it seem like you're underwater, and they're floating up (like hair does). Anyway, love it!
