Focus On A Flawless Base
Mermaids have a flawless base, always. Well, we don’t know that for sure, but a flawless base is still going to help you rock this look. Make sure you start with a good primer, foundation, and then conceal under your eyes and any other blemishes. Tip: using a wet blending sponge is a good way to get a flawless, sheer finish.
Get Your Shimmer On
Mermaids are always beautiful and shimmery, so highlighter is huge for this look. Give yourself a generous sweep of your favorite highlighter over your cheekbones, and down the center of your nose. To really up your highlighter game, don’t be afraid to put a small amount of highlighter under the arch of your brow. So flattering!
Choose The Right Colors
It seems like a mermaid’s favorite colors are those jewel toned colors. Think like yellow, blue, pink, purple, etc. Use colors that remind you of the sea, but don’t be afraid to get creative. Keep it bright!
Use An Iridescent Eyeshadow
There are so many iridescent products out there right now, like those from Jouer cosmetics and other great companies. Iridescent eyeshadow can be swept all over the lid to create the most gorgeous mermaid effect you’ve ever seen. Tip: wet your brush or finger first to get an even more intense look!
Do Something Different With Your Lips
Guess what? Now, metallic, glittery, iridescent lips are popular too! You don’t have to follow this bold lip look if you don’t want to, but it’ll definitely help you to stand out even more for a festival or concert.
Make Your Eyebrows Stand Out
Who says you have to have boring brown or blonde eyebrows? Make your eyebrows stand out by making them purple, or even green. You can contrast them with your eyeshadow to create a really fun look!
Use Glitter and Sparkle
Use large pieces of glitter and sparkle to create an amazing mermaid look. You can dab pieces under your eye and in the corner to get a super beautiful mermaid effect.
Get Creative With Shadows And Netting
If you really want to take the mermaid look to the next level, you can use netting and eyeshadows of different colors to create scales on your face. Don’t cover your entire face; simply have some near your hairline and over your forehead to give yourself just enough scales to look like a gorgeous mermaid.
I promise, if you use these tips you’ll make a splash with your mermaid makeup. Every once was in a while it is fun to experiment with a colorful makeup look. What are your thoughts about the mermaid makeup trend? Have you rocked this look? Let me know your thoughts below. Talk soon!
