Spanish Shawl Nudibranch Look

Today’s look is actually one I’ve had planned for a while . I read beauty article on the internet a few years ago that you should only use colors on tour face that are found in nature . So I decided to do just that when I was looking on google for some interesting color combinations . And behold I found my inspiration !

3C223A5C-2910-4CED-B5FE-ECF4D9F02244The Spanish Shawl Nudibranch! Look at those amazing colors ! I feel like this really speaks to me , with the nice neon Cerata . I’ll add some more links for info on Nudibranch (nudus latin for naked, brankhia which is greek for gills ) . I do love little gastropods like this as they’re usually very colorful and fantastical . Like an undersea unicorn 🦄

I had this planned for a while and decided I would attempt to do the colors with the shadows in my current collection . The hardest to find was the bright reddish orange shade , I have many shades of orange but nothing as bright as the Spanish Shaw’s cerata . So I mixed Juvia’s Place’s Fire (Wahala ) and Sugarpill’s Game Over (Funsize) in my crease area . This looked pretty intense and dependong on the lighting was super vibrant . Then I noticed shades of dark purple near the orange , that fades into a brighter purple and then that lovely neon cobalt blue color . So for this I added extra white shadow base over my eye and near the orange as I didn’t want the colors to go muddy . I used a dark matte purple (Spice of life from Pumpkin Spice palette) and the darker purple matte from the Nubian Royal palette . I then tried using Chaos from the Urban Decay palette for the blue , but it looked too dark so I added in Macaw (Bird of Paradise palette) to kind of brighten it up a bit. Afterwards I added the bright lilac(Nubian Royal)for the middle of my eye and Hot Tropic(Birds of Paradise)on top of that. 815A197D-4CB0-43D6-83F0-126393645FC2

During my time writing this article I spent sometime reading about Spanish Shawl nudibranch, learning about rhinophore( the antenna like horns on their head, and even found out that the cerata on top are poisonous. I guess they steal poison from jellyfish . Pretty interesting , plus they can be found in tide pools in California. Plus on IG I’m asking around to see if anyone want’s to do a Nature is Bold challenge, to see what cool eye combos inspired by nature can look like . As there are many beautiful, strange and bright phenomena found in nature . If you would like to participate on wordpress let me know and just tag my site and tag #Natureisbold . Or let me know on IG @aqua_dementia.  And here’s some interesting articles I found about Nudibranch and Spanish Shawls.
