"Mermaid Eyes" Easy Halloween Makeup

Hello Beauties! I know I've been away for a while and I feel absolutely negligent... between my birthday and other holidays, October has been a crazy month for me -- but NO excuses. I'm looking forward to playing catch-up in November and have lots of exciting news to share with you! For now, here's a last-minute makeup look for tonight's Halloween parties. Ariels, mermaids, sea creatures -- this one's for you!

Let's get started :)

"Mermaid Princess" is a super duper cute and easy look that is perfect for anyone in need of a last-minute costume idea. All you need is some long, cascading locks, a curling wand, a bodysuit, some sparkling jewels and shimmery aqua makeup to pull it all together. I'm using:

  1. Blonde highlights using 20" Malaysian Human Hair clip-in Extensions (color: Honey Blonde) from BK Unique Hair
  2. Cascading waves using NuMe Lustrum 5-in-1 wand and the 25mm barrel
    • $115 OFF curling wands & flat irons COUPON: dearmaryam (case sensitive) 
    • $120 OFF styling sets COUPON: prettyhair8

On to the Maquillage!
I'm using all Motives makeup (listed & linked below) & 15-piece professional brush set. My lashes are House of Lashes "Noir Fairy" lashes.

"Mermaid Eyes" Step-by-Step Makeup Tutorial
  1. Prime the lids from the lashes to the brows using Motives Eye Base. With the angle liner 207 brush, line the top and bottom lash lines with Motives gel liner in Little Black Dress, wing out the outer edge and smudge the top liner up towards the crease.
  2. With the detailing 229 brush, apply a thin layer of Motives Cream Shadow in Gold Dust all over the lid and inner corner. Layer the shadow over the smudged liner.
  3. Using the pointed crease 204 brush, apply Onyx eyeshadow to the lower lash line, outer corner and outer crease of the eye. Blend out any harsh edges using Cappuccino eyeshadow.
  4. Using the 130 concealer brush, apply Gold Rush eyeshadow to the inner corner (combined with the Gold Dust eye base, the resulting color is a bright, popping yellow gold). Clean off the brush and apply Crystal Blue eyeshadow to the center of the lid, blending the transitions.
  5. Cut off a small piece of an old fishnet stocking to use it as a stencil for the "scales" pattern. Hold the fabric taught, but don't stretch it -- stretching the fishnet would result in a larger pattern. Using a slightly damp eyeshadow brush and a sparkly turquoise loose shadow (Motives Mineral Eye Shadow in InStyle), layer the shadow over the fishnet in the outer brow bone area. 
    • This takes a bit of practice and patience -- you only get one shot to apply the scales, so make sure not to move the fabric until you are completely finished.
  6. Increase the sparkle by adding Motives Glitter Pot in Lagoon Blue on top of the lid shadow. Add voluminous false lashes and skip the liner. My lashes: House of Lashes "Noir Fairy"
Have a fun & safe Halloween celebration!!!
