My life has sort of been taken over by what I call “Mermaid Magic” lately, and I’m not even close to tired of it! Between Instagram, XO Vain, and this blog, I’ve been pretty much non-stop swooning over anything and everything sea-related, but I think my new collaborations with Bicyclette might be my favourite yet!
As you may already know, Paige and I drove for four hours last weekend to get the perfect mermaid lagoon photos, and we’re practically counting down the seconds until the photographer finishes sifting through the shots and editing. What you may not know though is before we’d even left for the trip we had already worked together on two super fun complementary projects: a pearl sunglasses DIY, and a mermaid beauty look with Ashley Readings.
Ashley is a super well known-makeup artist here in Toronto, and she’s worked on all sorts of shoots with Bicyclette in the past. As part of her “All Made Up” column, she teamed up with Paige and I to create a super ethereal shimmery mermaid look, and it turned out so pretty! By the time she was done with me I was ready to flip my fins and disappear under the waves to rejoin my mer-family!
