Gymnosomata, commonly known as Sea Angels. An apt name- the sea angels are the ethereal, translucent, fluttering angels of the sea.
In hard scientific terms, they’re small swimming sea slugs, but we’ll pass over that for now and just admire how delicately beautiful these wonderful creatures are.

Dark ‘n’ Edgy: Easy-to-Do Smoky Duochrome Eye Makeup
I’m of the opinion smoky eyes suit almost everyone as long as you blend it out right. And my favorite way to get maximum intensity with minimum effort is to lay a good black base on the lid before popping on any eyeshadow shade you choose.
It not only intensifies any shimmer you apply on top, the sandwiching also makes for a longer-lasting look.
My New Find
Black water-based face paint is very affordable, goes on smooth and opaque, and blends like any gel line. While it isn’t budge-proof like Make Up For Ever’s Black Aqua Cream, it’s certainly more long-lasting than regular black pencil or kajal.
Snazaroo is the brand I purchased, but any water-based black face paint should work just as well.
You will also need:
- A duochrome shadow. This can be any color you want, as long as it has that color-shifting property. I used a gorgeous purple that shifts a golden-green, called “Love Potion No. 9” from Lime Crime’s “Alchemy” Fantasy Palette.
- A matte black shadow. I just used one from BH Cosmetics.
