    i LOVE doing these weekly challenges!! :) i tried several different ways to get the scales right on my forehead/neck area to give it that fish-esque feel. however, It didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped. but still every challenge is more experience gained.. and it doesnt hurt when it’s your hobby, either!! :) <3








    Good luck to everyone!! :)





    This is my entry! I used blue and green eye shadows, including NYX and Stargazer. I also used eyeliner, mascara, Emani eye glitter, and plastic gem stones. There was no inspiration photo, just imagination.


    Here is my Mermaid Inspired look. This is my first weekly challenge!

    I was inspired by the multi-colored iridescent mermaid tail and the glittering sea. The Little Mermaid was my favorite cartoon growing up and I spent many hours splashing around in my grandparents pool with a diving ring around my ankles – pretending to be Ariel ;)



    If I was a mermaid,  I would rock this look every day!!! =] SO excited to see everyone’s looks for this challenge!! I love mermaids they are gorgeous!

    Thank god the mermaid doesent have to be pretty :D

    I got my mermaid inspiration from: MOOMIN! (I’m so sorry if you havent heard from Finlands gift to the world, along with santaclaus and salty liqourice!)

    And heres what I could come up with…

    And then I got bored an took it a little bit further, though the brows didnt fill in nicely after I had dealt them with white liner, so the color just got stuck to the places where the white had been..

     This is my version of a Mermaid Inspired look! I have no particular inspiration for this look, just my own creativity. I know it looks like a bride, but I was actually going for an elegant mhymsical look :) Thank you! All of you are gorgeous!!! :)

    This look was sooo fun to do. I have decided that I am going to be a mermaid for Halloween so I can do it again!!


    I used a dark blue, turquoise, and bright green for my eyes and the “scales.”


    I did my hair too, even though this is technically a makeup competition.



    I added red lipstick at the end, but decided I liked the look better without it. However, I really like this picture.

    the reason the color is all wonky in this pic is because I tried to hurry up and use natural lighting, but I wasnt fast enough, and this is all I could get before the sun peaced out!



    Hi everyone! This is my post for the mermaid weekly challenge….this was really fun and I’m kinda new to the whole “costume” type of makeup.  I’m hoping to improve! :)  Loving everyone’s mermaid looks so far!
