I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! It’s one of my favorite holidays because it brings out the inner child in me and some of my favorite memories as a child.
This year I chose to be a mermaid. I wanted to be something that required some makeup skill because this girl loves a makeup challenge. I started looking at tutorials and instantly got inspired. I watched so many tutorials that I thought I would just use different looks from all to create my own. All you need is a creative mind, mermaid colors, and some fish nets, which are $3 in the Halloween aisle. Oh and glitter because glitter makes everything better.
- Face– Mac face and body. Applied with the IT Cosmetics foundation brush/real techniques blending sponge. Mac select sheer powder applied with real techniques powder brush/ blending sponge.
- Concealer– Urban Decay Naked shade fair neutral. I also used the blending sponge to set that.
- Brows– Anastasia brow pomade shade blonde. Anastasia brow wiz shade medium brown.
- Eyes– Base: MAC paint pot shade bare study. Crease: NYX shade hot fuchsia. Lid: NYX shade turnt up topped with shade mermaid. I smoked my outer corners and bottom lid with these shades as well. I also used some iridescent glitter on the lid and inner corners. The adhesive glue is the real trick to get it to stay and not clump up. Liner: L’Oreal Infallible pod Shade blackest black. Topped off with some Kiss fairytale lashes.
- Lips– NYX metallic lip cream shade out of this world.
- *Skales– I first put the fish net on my head to create the effect. I used NYX shades Mermaid, turnt up, hot fuchsia Topped with MAC skinfinish shade soft and gentle. I also glued on some iridescent flakes and jewels to top it off.
To complete the look I wanted to make my own top. I used an old bra and glued on some seashells and sequins along with beads that I made look like pearls. The skirt I ordered online for $25. I used purple and green hair chalk for my hair. Very messy but it totally set it off.
I hope you guys enjoyed this look just as much as I did. It was very fun to create and I can’t wait to see whats in store for next years look. What were you this year? I would love to hear in the comments!
