Halloween Makeup Tutorial: Mermaid

Hello Lovelies!

I am currently in Ocean City Maryland for "Endless Summer Cruisin' ", the
end of the season cruise-in!

Today I am gonna share a look I wanted to do cause I don't see it often, and
now I know why....It's HARD!
I wanted to do a mermaid look and it came out ok, but not great.
I'm gonna show you anyway in hopes that it might spark your creativity to
come up with a better version!!!

Step 1:
Apply eye shadow primer followed by a layer of white cream shadow for a
base, on the entire eye lid, lower lid and over your brows to lighten.

Step 2:
(optional) Apply a teal liner from lashline to crease, to help with color depth in the next step.
Then draw over your brows with a blue liner.

Step 3:
Apply a purple shadow the the lashlines and wing it out all the way into the hairline.
Next, apply a teal shadow from lashline to brow and onto the brow, and drag it back into the hairline too.
Then apply a seafoam green just under the brow as a highlight, and in the inner corners.
Finally, apply a medium blue into the crease and blend up for a bit of dimension.

Step 4:
Apply a blue lipstick. I HIGHLY recommend Evil Shades "Fiendish".  It's pretty much awesome!
Line your water lines with black liner and apply lashes and mascara!
(yes...yet again, I forgot a pic of this step....I suck at tutorials, lol)

Step 5:
Apply sequins using lash adhesive or another adhesive made for skin, in an
overlapping pattern to resemble scales.
I did this a different way on each eye, so you have a few ideas!


And that's it for today my dears!

I'll be back tomorrow!

You did a beautiful job with the makeup. I wore something like that to see Culture Club (Boy George's old group) many years ago. I got a lot of attention. I didn't have the sequins or brows. I used eyeshadow on my lips. No one had makeup like that for the general public! Love your fish face! Your adorable.

Hi fellows! We all know already that Anti aging makeup tends to be a little more emollient to address dryness. I have oily skin, so, I couldn’t use the anti aging makeup in the t-zone area. So, I consulted with make up by Company. They helped me well. . makeup
