Underwater Glam: Mermaid Halloween Makeup

Seashells and underwater life are the inspiration for this Halloween makeup look. Well for a summer lover like me, this eye makeup look can be totally wearable during warm months.

In order to resemble as much as possible a mermaid (!), I created a dewy, tanned base using mostly liquid products and setting only my under eye area and the center of my forehead. The highlighting products are under the spotlight for this look.

The combination of pink, warm coral and green-blue is a sure success for mermaid makeup looks. I added a glitter liner that gave some extra glow and also defined the eye shape.

On the lips I used a metallic lipstick but you can definitely go for a hot pink one.

Now as for the fun part, I just left my imagination to lead me on where to place the pearls and the seashells. You may check the makeup products I chose for an effortless underwater glam:
