Mermaid Makeup: The BeShelled Femme or The Scaled Goddess

Mermaid Makeup: The BeShelled Femme or The Scaled Goddess

Mermaid makeup is PHENOMENAL fun because there are so many different ways to create the look.  There are sea mermaids, lagoon kind of mossy green mermaids, and endless colours and decor to choose from!!

This is brainstorm/mock up is actually for someone who contacted me and asked for me to do the makeup of 3 amazing ladies who are celebrating one of the sister’s birthday in March!!  They are having a wonderful “Under the Sea” theme and the 2 sisters are mermaid princesses and the birthday sister is the mermaid queen!!  I love this idea & not only have i come up with some different makeup looks, but I’ve also thought about tiara and crown ideas- all made from headbands, shells, starfish, and pearls!!  So, I did 2 different looks- one on either side of my face- that can be changed in colours, moved around in placement, and have ENDLESS options!!

London Moore’s 12 Days of Christmas Special:

…And on the 5th Day of Christmas…

Sugar Plums danced in our heads!!  Hi everyone- Christmas is getting nearer and nearer!!  And as we get closer and we’re over our halfway mark of this series… I wanted to branch out and do the not-so-average Christmas colours.  Pink & purple don’t scream Christmas, but they do say “sugar plums”!!  So we have bright & bold eyes with a soft pink lip to match.

The Inspiration:

The Look:


On The 5th Day of Christmas [Picture] Tutorial:

Cover your entire lid with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil “MILK” as well as your under eye

Blend it all over & out

Using the neon pink in ELF’s 144 palette- start OUTSIDE the corner of your eye and then carry it over 3/4 of the lid.  As well as under your waterline below.

Now, you can use tape- but I prefer using an envelope or paper of some sort because putting tape on our skin messes with the elasticity of your skin [which will be very important in later years!!].  So take an envelope and create and angle from the outer corner of your eye, and just go up and out.

Then using the deepest purple [on the bottom row] pat your brush along the point where the envelope and your skin meet- thus creating a harsh line.  Also bring the purple 1/4 of the way onto your lid.

Then blend where the 2 colours meet.  Also blend the purple to follow your crease all the way to the corner of your inner eye [do this very lightly though- a soft effect].

Then using the same purple and an angled brush- create a thick eyeliner line.  And also take the purple and put it under your waterline to meet the pink.

Now using the top champaign colour in the ELF palette- highlight your brow bone.

Now for liner- wing out the top to follow your purple straight line & the bottom is going to wing out as well.

Now take NYX “MILK” eye pencil and with a small angled brush pop it into the small fish tail we created with the eyeliner & blend it outwards.  After this- pop on eyelashes and you are done with your eyes!

As for your lips- put on NYX “FlLOWER” thin lip liner [keep in mind- if you want your lips to look fuller, put the liner right on the outside of you actual lip line] & then use MAC’s Prolongwear Lip Creme “OVERTIME” to create this soft lip.

As for the final touches- your cheeks are ONLY going to have MAC’s iridescent powder.  we really want a candied glowing look.

Est c’est fin!
