halloween tutorial: mermaid

Hello loves! With the absolute craze for mermaid looks in the beauty community right now, I knew I had to create my own version. I want to center it around blue and green glitter and this is the look I ended up with.

products used:

make up for ever step one primer – smoothing

becca backlight priming filter

tarte rainforest of the sea foundation – fair light neutral

cover fx custom cover drops – moonlight

urban decay naked skin concealer – fair

laura mercier secret brightening powder – 01

makeup geek shadow – neptune

too faced shadow insurance glitter glue

michaels glitter

anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade – taupe

jeffree star beauty killer palette – expensive

mac gigiblack mascara

loreal silkissime liner – blue cobalt

ardell lashes – 251

duo brush on lash glue

colourpop ultra matte lip – midi

step 1: primer – I primed my skin with muf smoothing primer to create a smooth even base. I then applied becca backlight priming filter for an ethereal glow.

step 2: foundation – I mixed cover fx moonlight drops with tarte foundation for a glowy natural look.

step 3: concealer – I concealed my under eyes, eyelids, chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose, and center of forehead with UD naked concealer.

step 4: powder – I set my under eyes and eyelids with laura mercier brightening powder.

step 5: glitter – I drew on the outline for my defined cat eye using mug neptune shadow. I filled in the entire area with the same shadow. I used my finger to pack on glitter glue all over the shadow area. I then pressed the glitter on top of the glue.

step 6: liner – I filled in my waterline with loreal blue cobalt liner.

step 7: mascara – mac gigiblack mascara is my go to for darkening my lashes before falsies because it still looks natural enough to blend with lashes.

step 8: false lashes – I used ardell 251 lashes. I like the duo brush on lash glue because it is so easy to apply it evenly on the lash band without a mess. I let it dry for  about 30 seconds before actually putting them on my eyes so that they are tacky enough. I press them against my real lashes with tweezers so that you can’t see a distinction line.

step 9: brows – I filled in my brows with abh dipbrow taupe.

step 10: contour – I contoured my face using JS expensive shadow and neptune for a green sea like effect.

step 11: lips – I applied colourpop midi all over my lips and once it dried I applied the glitter glue around the edge of my lips and all over my bottom lip then pressed the same glitter on top.

here’s the completed look again:
