Welcome to my Mermaid Inspired Makeup Tutorial by Alexa Poletti. Of course, we’ll start with a clean face. I found these purple and blue glasses at GlassesShop.com. I think the colors are so mermaidy and really, really cute.
Let’s start our transformation by turning our eyes purple. Then I will put on my base makeup. This includes concealer, foundation, powder, and eyeshadow primer. Remember to wash your hands first if you’re going to use your fingers to apply makeup like I do.
Everyone seems to want to know about my makeup brushes, so here they are. This is a limited edition set from tokidoki and Sephora. They don’t sell them anymore but you can probably find them online on eBay or Amazon.
Let’s start getting aquatic with some teal eyeshadow. Now let’s give our teal eyes a mermaid factor with purple eyeshadow. I’m going to put purple on the outer corners of my eyes and along the crease.
Now I’m going to add an iridescent pearl eyeshadow to the inner corners of my eyes and underneath my eyes for a little highlight. I am also going to highlight my brow bone with the same pearl eyeshadow.
Wheee! Do you like my eyeliner mustache? I am going to make a thick black line across my eye with liquid eyeliner. For this look, I am going to use white eyeliner to brighten my waterline. Now I will add a teal eyeliner right underneath my natural waterline for a bit of color.
Now it’s time to load up our lashes with mascara. Then I am going to use purple eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows, because why not? I think if anyone has purple eyebrows, it’s probably a mermaid. My eyelashes today are Dolluxe number six, Whiplash Attack.
Place the lashes on your eyes as close as possible to your natural lash line. I use a damp Q-Tip to make sure the lashes are secure. Where would a mermaid be without shimmery pink lips? I am going to add a little bit of dimension to my lips with a purple lip gloss.
Mermaids are all about the hair. My hair is okay, but I think I’m going to need a little extra help for this look. Nothing screams mermaid quite like the Rhapsody in rose from Gothic Lolita Wigs. If you want to be a mermaid out on the town, this is a great stopping point.
Just grab some ocean themed accessories and you’re ready to be a mermaid for the day. But of course, I won’t stop there. For a full mermaid transformation, I want scales. Here I am clipping back my bangs, which looks really bad for now.
You basically just want to be able to have access without hair in it. Now I am going to use purple eyeshadow to contour my cheek bones. This is just going to be a base for underneath our scales. I found these glitter flakes at my local craft store when I was looking for something to make scales out of.
They come in all different colors and I thought this colorway would be perfect for scales. Using my finger, I apply eyelash glue in small sections. Then you just stick the glitter flakes to the eyelash glue.
Be prepared to make a mess. They get everywhere. Here is our finished mermaid look. Thank you so much for watching my mermaid tutorial. If you want to see more sneak peeks and behind the scenes photos, follow me Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
