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

anastasia beverly hills dipbrow pomade – taupe

jeffree star beauty killer palette – expensive

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.

halloween tutorial: sandy

Last halloween, I saw tons of people dress up as Sandy from Grease. This is a super easy costume to throw together and is a great couples costume as well!

products used:

nivea mens post shave balm

tarte rainforest of the sea foundation – fair light neutral

cle de peau concealer – ivory

anastasia beverly hills contour powder – banana

too faced chocolate soleil bronzer

clinique cheek pop blush – peach pop

smashbox photofinish eye primer

anastasia beverly hills shadow – stone

lorac mega pro palette

colourpop dope taupe brow color

ardell lashes -150

duo brush on lash glue

mac lip liner – cherry

maybelline vivid matte liquid – orange shot, rebel red

step 1: prime –  I applied nivea mens shave balm to smooth my skin and prolong my foundation wear.

step 2: foundation – I used tarte rain forest of the sea foundation for a light dewy look.

step 3: concealer – I applied cle de peau concealer under my eyes to cover my dark circles.

step 4: powder – I set my concealer using abh banana powder.

z-palette-face

step 5: bronzer – Sandy had a very bronzy cheek look rather than contour so I used a big blush brush to blend too faced chocolate bronzer all over my cheek area and the outer edges of my forehead.

step 6: blush – Sandy had a nice peachy cheek so I applied clinique peach pop directly on the apples of my cheeks to imitate her look.

step 7: prime – I smoothed smashbox eye primer on my lids to ensure my shadows stayed on.

step 8: eyeshadow – Sandy had a really messy grey smoky eye. I started by taking fluffy brush and blending abh stone all over my crease to begin the cool toned transition. I then used lorac ash to blend around the outer v of the eye and all through the crease until it was relatively dark. I then took a small bullet brush and blended a little of black into the very outer edge and smudged that along the upper and lower lash line and blended the black using a pencil brush and more ash.

sandy-z-palette

sandy-lorac-mega-3

step 9: 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 10: false lashes – Sandy had pretty natural lashes so I used ardell 150 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 11: lips – I lined my lips with mac cherry lip liner. Sandy had a really glossy red lip so I used maybelline vivid matte liquid in rebel red to fill in the whole lip and popped a little of orange shot in the center of the lips for some dimension.

step 12: hair – I sectioned off my hair and curled small sections using a 1/4 inch curling iron. I hairsprayed the finished curls and once I was done curling all my hair, I used a small teasing comb to create a bunch of messy volume.

here’s the completed looks:
