What girl doesn’t dream of being a mermaid? I dressed up as one in grade school and again this past year for Halloween. I have seen many tutorials on mermaid makeup and wanted mine to be different. I wanted it to be beautiful yet a little eerie and mystical. I started with Mehron Syn Wax to create some dimension to my forehead and cheek bones and then added my make up.
To get the fish scale look I put fish nets over my face and neck and brushed on my green, teal and purple makeup. Once I was happy with the color I added my gold liquid makeup for accents. When it comes to Halloween make up, Mehron is the best. It wears like normal makeup and is not oily or drying on your face.
I then used the same colors on my eyes, eyebrows and lips. Just add a fun wig, mermaid tail and accessories and now you are a mystical mermaid. This is by far one of my favorite costumes yet!
