A few weeks ago I was contacted by none other than Nickelodeon regarding a new show of theirs: The Other Kingdom. Now I was a SKY baby so I did watch a load of Nickelodeon. Drake & Josh, Victorious, Genie in the House and H20 Just Add Water (my personal favourite!) So when they asked if I’d like to help promote this new show I just couldn’t say no really.
The Other Kingdom starts four days from now on the 8th of August at 6:30pm. The show is about a fairy who wants to be human, and journey’s to a high school. (I’d rather be a fairy and travel to a magical land to be honest, but each to their own.) It seems there will be plenty of magic and of course some fairy dust, not the LUSH kind though. To celebrate they sent me some goodies to turn myself into a fairy princess with. Nickelodeon are making my dreams come true, I just wish they could also get me to turn into a mermaid. I thought I would show you the lovely things they sent me and of course the final result!
There was a gorgeous moonstone necklace*, some sparkly face gems* and also some glittery ASOS socks*. Sadly I couldn’t get the gems to work for me and I couldn’t find my eyelash glue to secure them. But look at the socks, are they not magical!? If ever I’m having a down day I will wear these so I feel sparkly.
Now this is a real gem and I feel ready to go to a festival. The blues and greens of the flower crown* are so stunning! Blues work really nicely with my pale skin tone and the greens bring out the green in my eyes which is strange but beautiful. I am going to wear this so so much this summer.
Now for the sparkly makeup items. There were three Claire’s glitter gels*, I used the silver one on my brows which did look pretty good, however I am still finding glitter on my face now but I guess that’s part of being a fairy princess. Then a Winky Lux lipgloss* which looks a really vibrant pink but transfers as a light pink with a tonne of glitter, it was the perfect base for my lips in the end as you’ll see. And then the Elegant Touch nails* which are things of beauty and I really really need more!
Now this palette is definitely the showstopper. It’s the Urban Decay Wende’s Contraband palette which is so whimsical. 6 amazing shadows, I fell in love most with deep end, flash and tornado, and believe me I put them to use when becoming a fairy princess.
I used the shades deep end, tornado, flash and also trick on the eyes, and deep end and flash on the lips to create a nice ombré ish look. The flower crown went really nicely with the colours I used. It’s not too apparent but there is glitter gel in my brows which looked magical in the light!
So what do you think about my fairy princess look? I really liked it and think if I toned it down a tad I could turn it into a festival look, complete with flower crown. Don’t forget that if you or maybe your children like the sound of The Other Kingdom it starts on Nickelodeon at 6:30pm on the 8th of August!
