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.
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
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:
