Every little girl wants to grow up to be a mermaid. Now you can make all your childhood dreams come true with just a splash of makeup.
With a quick scroll of the Instagram feed, you'll see that #MermaidMakeup is all the rage as Halloween approaches. But what your favorite Insta-bloggers may not be telling you is how flippin' easy it is to master this makeup tutorial — as long as you've got a spare pair of fishnets on hand.
Finally, you can bring your mermaid dreams to life in way less time than it takes to shop for Halloween costumes online.
You will look like the ugliest version of yourself during this step. It's worth it, I promise.
Using a sponge or your fingertips, tap a blue cream shadow like Maybelline ColorTattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Tenacious Teal at your temples, forehead and tops of your cheekbones. (Maybelline, $7)
Next, take a green cream shadow like Maybelline ColorTattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Edgy Emerald, and apply below your blue areas, moving closer to the center of your face. (Maybelline, $7)
Using a silver cream shadow like Maybelline ColorTattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Silver Strike, tap on top of the high points of your face as highlights. (Maybelline, $7)
Now, the fun part! Remove the fishnet, and see the scales you've created!
Using the same blue cream shadow and a synthetic brush or fingers, apply to the entire lid. Elongate the shape at the outer corners if you wish.
