I love monochromatic looks! I'd suggest blending out the eye shadow a little as the line of placement is quite harsh. I'd also play a little with bringing some more color in a gradient onto the lower lash line to really live the mermaid fantasy! I feel like bottom shadow really completes a look, but that's totally personal preference!
I decided to try something that's a bit different so I pulled out my NYX Water palette and decided to build a look around that.
The makeup used:
You really pull this look off! Very cool. Would look great with some green shimmer blended in the inner corners of the eye too. Or maybe on the lower lid.

Very pretty eyeshadow combo!
Dear Becca, can I use your highlighters as eyeshadows?
Becca: I DON'T KNOW, CAN YOU
You're welcome to try it cause idk.
Let me know if you want to ask the same question again.
It sounds basically like they used eye safe ingredients but didn’t test them for eye safety and want to cover their asses, which is pretty much how they should respond.
it is a strange response but i get where they're coming from, some people have more sensitive eyes while others don't get bothered by much. i use opal on my eyes sometimes and i'm completely fine, but then again i'm only one person
"Sure! But just incase you have a freak accident and go blind, you can't sue us. Okay cool byeee"
To me it sounds like either they use a product that isn't eye safe but is unlikely to have a reaction, or they use eye safe products that they have not tested on the eyes.
hmmmm. And I've been using Opal as a topper for some time. No problem so far.
"sure u can but like Idk if it's a good idea"
What a strange answer!
Their Instagram features videos of people applying them as eye-shadows all the time. If for some reason they are not eye safe, they shouldn't really be promoting them as so.
It might be that they used ingredients that won’t irritate your eyes, but have otherwise been deemed “not eye safe”. In that sense, they can’t market or recommend the product for use on the eyes because of that stipulation, but they are technically safe to use. This apparently happens a lot with certain vegan eyeshadow pigments. They were deemed not eye safe because they stained lids, but were otherwise harmless.
Idk if this is the case for this highlighter though. Report back with results pls.
Imagine they responded with “No”
I use one of them (kind of light gold? Was a Sephora 100pt perk, don't remember the name) on my eyes all the time without an issue. Didn't ever think about the possibility!
Well..I’ve used them on my eyes A LOT not thinking about the fact they may not have been tested in the eye area..
I still have my eyesight, and haven’t had any other negative reactions
Ohhh. I thought she meant IN the eye and I was like... well, duh.
What a...helpful reply 😂
If this helps, I've used my Moonstone mini in my inner corner quite a few times and never had any irritation.
YMMV but I use them on my eyes all the time with no problems
Bahahaha! They would have been better off saying you can...but don’t call us if your eye falls off. Just scary.
I don't know why but when I read it I thought they meant they weren't formulated for the eyeballs and that's what was hilarious lol

You look really nice!!
I love it!
All of the colors compliment each other, and your skin color, so well!
I love seeing your progress when you post! Your base and eyebrow game have improved dramatically, and this lip is killer.
Ah...ruby woo is unmatched. I love that red.
That is truly a stunning colour on you!! My only CC would be to tidy up the upper lip line with lip liner and you'd be flawless.
This is such a classic and beautiful look. Just the right shade of red for you!
Your eyes look absolutely stunning!
The lighting makes my face looks like it doesn't match my chest but I promise it does! Feeling brave today and decided to switch things up and pull out my MAC Ruby Woo that has been neglected.

Hi again! I know it’s not for everyone, but I’d love to see you experiment with some face freckles :)
You’ve definitely improved a lot!! It’s the little things that people catch that make the biggest difference, I feel!
I just looked at your old makeup pictures on here and you look like a new woman!!! I love this look your brows are amazing everything is amazing great job!! You're beautiful!
This lipstick looks great on you! It's like one of my favorites.
Your eyes look amazing too

Tips on blush placement and amount very welcome! Or anything else :)
Edit: Oh also what color of Glossier lidstar should I try?
Puff looks so natural and pretty on you. It’s the only color I own and now I want them all 🙈
If the one on the right is the normal, I prefer that to the thicker
I’m not sure if they’re from the same day, but I think the brows on the right flatter your face better and look more natural. You did well!
The thicker ones (left) are definitely too thick. Idk, if the right pic is your usual / natural look then I think it's pretty perfect
I think the actual "body" part of your brows are perfectly fine the way you normally fill them. I think slightly thicker tails than the before photo would marry these two together perfectly. Great first attempt though! It's really hard to do new brow styles when you're so used to a certain shape and size.
I love the right, but also if you like thicker eyebrows I recommend you should try to keep the thickness above the brows rather than below :)
These feel sooooooo thick to me (even though they're not as thick as my natural eyebrows were before I overplucked them in high school). (They never grew back).
All CC welcome!
They look totally natural to me! Great shape!
This is pretty good for your first time :)
That being said, you always want your brows to be at least the shade of your hair, if not darker. I’d suggest a slightly thicker brow with a more defined shape to really frame your eyes.
I’d suggest using a warm transition shade (brown) and blending that out more in your crease - this will bring more warmth to your eyes and complement your gorgeous eye color. Darkening your outer corner and making it a natural day time smokey eye would look great.
If you’re going for more simple look, I suggest tight lining your lash line - this draws more attention to your eyes and really helps make your eyes pop.
For more advanced stuff, if you want to contour top part of your nose where it forms kind of an upside down “V” above your nostrils, I think that would make your nose a bit smaller and flatter your features.
I can’t really see the highlighter, so I’d suggest a different shade or building it up more for a natural glow. I think contouring your forehead with some bronzer as well as the sides of your face in the usual “3” shape will help warm up your face.
As for lips, moisturize more! Natural light, MLBB shade lipsticks will look really good on you.
There’s lots of MUA and color theory posts online to help you learn eyeshadow colors that will really make your eyes pop - I really love the color.

Thanks for taking the time to look have a great day y'all
I don't see any brow products on the list, you're really lucky to have brows like that! It's a very nice eyeshadow look you did, reminds me of peach lemonade! One thing that I think would make your lashes pop a lot more is if you used a lash curler on them before you applied mascara, it really helps bring them up and makes the mascara much more visible!
This is amazing, I'd even have bet you weren't wearing any foundation. Its extremely well done.
My criticism is to either add a tap of dark shadow to the outer corner of the lid (and blend it) or curl the lashes more. This will add more definition to that part of the eye look without changing it, IMO.
