Makeup Mugshot and Mermaid Nails

Today has been one of those strange days where you just wake up feeling pants for no particular reason. I know I'm prone to the odd gloomy day but this has just been weird.
So plans have been cancelled, calm, happy music is being played and vanilla scented candles have been lit.

I always find painting my nails pretty colours is great for cheering me up so today I've gone for glitter and used a combination of GOSH "Ocean" and Barry M "Amethyst Glitter" and created pretty mermaid nails :)
The photo doesn't show just how bright and pretty the colours are in the light but it gives you a good idea :)

The other thing that makes me feel more like me when I feel rubbish is bright red lipstick. I sort of feel like if you give off confidence from the outside maybe you'll feel better on the inside too.
Whats on my face:

Estee Lauder invisible fluid foundation
Lush Emotional Brilliance face powder
Benefit Dandelion blusher
Lush Feeling Younger highlighter

Bobbi Brown Mahogany powder on brows
Lush Sophisticated eyeshadow
Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara

Lush bubblegum lip scrub
Illamasqua Sangers lipstick

I have to say that just doing these little things has made me feel a lot better about myself :) I'm lots calmer and ready to face the world again.

What do you do to cheer yourself up on an off day?

  1. Those nails are beautiful! So like a mermaid, I actually thought that before I'd even read the title :) You look lovely too, I hate down days, I usually get a bit dolled up, and maybe go for tea with my bessie mate to cheer myself up! Or usually a good chat to mum on the phone does the trick :) xx

  2. The nails are beautiful. I love mermaid things :) Sorry to hear you felt sad. I have days like that and I just dance around a bit to feel better :)

  3. Gorgeous nails, they look beautiful! Sorry to hear you've been feeling upset day - we all have times like that, but i'm sure you'll be feeling better soon. Have a mini pamper sesh, watch your favourite film and eat chocolate!
