Last minute Halloween inspo.
As any beauty guru knows, the internet is the perfect place to turn when you're in need of inspiration for your next makeup look.
From emojis to members of One Direction (yes really), there's a tutorial for everything – and if it's under-the-sea that takes your fancy, you're probably gonna want these 7 mermaid makeup tutorials in your life.
1. Marc Zapanta’s mermaid Halloween makeup tutorial
If you’re feeling full on, create a mermaid-Avatar-hybrid with Marc Zapanta’s Halloween look, combining a wavy wig with green skin, enough glitter to sink a ship and bright pink eyebrows. Want maximum impact? Marc’s got you covered.
2. @monicarosemua’s mermaid lover look
Or dip your toe in the water (excuse the pun) with this less OTT but equally mermaid-esque look, which uses a fishnet tight to create scales and a combination of colours to create depth.
3. Sultry Siren’s jewel-tastic mermaid makeup
Want more of an iridescent and sparkly vibe? Look no further than Sultry Siren’s purple and pearl tutorial, which uses gemstones and stick on beads to reach ultimate shimmery scales.
4. Sophie Hannah Richardson’s dead mermaid
Or channel the other end of the spectrum with blogger Sophie Hannah Richardson’s tutorial, which goes a bit gory – making it perfect for Halloween or a gross fancy dress outfit. It might not be as easy as some of the others, but it sure is effective.
5. @beautybychelseadae’s simply but impressive tutorial
By mixing a creamy highlighter with highly pigmented loose powder eye shadows, @beautybychelseadae achieves a super impressive scale effect with minimal effort.
6. LoLo Love’s Ariel inspired look
If it’s an actual Disney mermaid you’re after, look no further than LoLo Love’s Ariel makeup tutorial. She uses a pink and blue cut crease, pink eyebrows and a heavy highlighter to achieve a shimmery and super cute look.
7. Jordan Hanz’s INSANE under the sea creature
Jordan Hanz is clearly not about doing things by halves, so get your hands on some modelling clay, sea shells and enough paint to cover your whole upper body. What are you waiting for?
