Faces by the Honey B: Halloween Mermaid

It's that time of year again!!! With Halloween rapidly approaching, the beautiful Lizette had asked me to do a mermaid look for a costume party she was attending. When I think of mermaids, I tend to think of deep greens and blues. I wanted to create a very wet look for Lizette's mermaid makeup so I stuck to shimmers and sparkly eyeshadows. I primed her eyelid with Pixi eye primer, and added MAC's Vex all over her lid, applying it the darkest in the brow bone. I then took Cargo's Green Bay lime green eyeshadow and applied it to the inner corner of her lid and near the tear ducts. I put Urban Decay's Kiddie Pool, a turquoise shimmery blue, on her lid and brought Urban Decay's Flash in on the crease and outer V. To really reinforce the purple color, I added MAC's Parfait Armor over Flash. I did a simple black winged eyeliner line with MAC's Blacktrack Fluid line and applied very pointy, thick falsies on both bottom and top lashlines. I applied MAC's Light Flush Highlighter all over her cheekbones, T-zone and bridge of her nose and applied My Paradise onto the apples of her cheeks. To finish the look, I added MAC's Cremesheen lipgloss in Fashion Scoop for a wet look. Apply a small layer of Wet 'N' Wild's white glitter down the temples to your cheeks for an extra scaley look. Picture below is the beautiful Lizette as a siren of the sea Mermaid Princess! What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

  4. Awww you did a great job, you are really talented with makeup. Definitely looks "mermaidy" but lets her own beauty shine through without it being too costumey.
