Happy Halloween! Dark mermaid halloween makeup.


Hey there! Happy Halloween! so once i knew i wanted to do a Halloween makeup look for Halloween the hunt was on to figure out what kind of look i wanted to do! i reached out and asked on instagram, twitter and facebook and i had the suggestion dark mermaid come back. I really like this idea so off i went! i actually ended up doing this look twice, i did it on Saturday but i really wasn’t happy with how the look or the pictures turned out so i tried again on Monday and im much happier with this one!

I hope you like this too, happy Halloween!

Eyes –

Revolution brow tint in dark – go to brow product.

Bourjois 24HR eyeshadow primer.

Imagic flash palette using black – as an eyeshadow base.

Revolution single eyeshadow in touch me – to set my primer and base.

Revolution Pro regeneration trends mischief mattes using poison and shrine – i used poison as my first crease colour, and then shrine was more directly in my crease.

Sleek divine ultra mattes V1 brights palette using sugarlite and dragonfly – i found the colours getting muddy so i used these to brighten the colours up.

Revolution eyes like angels eyeshadow palette using aqua dream – as my lid colour.
Maybelline master ink matte liquid eyeliner in charcoal black – i did a heavy wing, i didnt plan too! but i did.

maybelline total temptation mascara in black – even when i wear lashes, i still pile it on!

Eyelashes from ebay.

Face –

Obsession whitener drops, max factor facefinity foundation in light ivory, freedom ghost whitener, revolution liquid highlighter unicorn elixir, revolution haunted liquid highlighter in envy and imagic flash palette the blue – ok, so my “foundation” was a right old mix! i basically kept mixing until i got what i wanted, in the end for some reason in some pictures i look much bluer than others! it gets the effect across though, and that was all over my face, neck and chest.

Elf HD setting powder – to set everything!

Revolution Pro regeneration trends mischief mattes using poison and shrine – i used a stencil i got from a mermaid kit from tescos, but fishnet tights work well too! and then i basically just went all around my face and picked random spots on my chest, i also shaded/contoured my chest a bit, and blended the scales in so they didn’t look so placed.

Revolution ultra cool glow highlighter palette using the green – i sprayed my brush with a setting spray before i picked up the powder and then i went wild! pretty much all over my chest, cheekbones, nose, chin, cupids bow, under the brow, inner corners, everywhere!

Iridescent cosmetic white/green glitter – i then grabbed this super pretty glitter and pretty much did the same that i did with the highlighter! minus cupids bow and eyes.

Lips –
MUA luxe velvet lip lacquer in splash – all over the lips.

Revolution haunted liquid highlighter in envy – i patted this in the centre of my lips then blended outwards.

Iridescent cosmetic white/green glitter – i then basically did the same with the glitter too.

I am so happy i re did this! because i like this version so much more than i liked my first one, it really proves that sometimes its worth trying again!

I hope you enjoy, and have a happy and safe Halloween!
