Author: Danielle Cauchi Date Posted: 3 September 2017
After watching The Little Mermaid for the 47th time, we’re left with bittersweet nostalgia for our younger Disney days, hoarse throats from singing along to ‘Part of Your World’ at the top of our lungs and a longing desire to be part of that world.
No matter how old you are, I’m sure you’ve dreamed of being a mermaid at some point. I know I have and I’m not ashamed to admit it!
Mermaid Salon gives you the opportunity to live out this aquatic fantasy with their exciting and adorable mermaid-motivated beauty products. From their vivid pigments, glistening shimmers and their top-quality mermaid brushes that took Instagram by storm, you’re bound to fall in love with these super cute, versatile products.
Here’s a little guide on how to get your mermaid on!
Mermaid looks are abundant with pastels and bright pigments.
The common method is to use blues and purples as the basis of your look with deeper navy blue’s to smoke out the eye and add definition. Bright pinks, greens and yellows are typically packed onto the centre of the lid or used as transitionary shades.
The best palette for this is Mermaid Salon’s Jewel Tone City Eyeshadow Palette because it has all of those vivid pigments, plus softer colours to make blending a total breeze.
Now, let’s talk about glitter.
Mermaids are magical beings. Glitter is obviously a necessity!
Packing glitter onto the centre of the lid or dusting some on the inner corner is a perfect way to add extra depth and dimension to this fabulous fantasy look.
Mermaid Salon’s Pressed Glitters are your go-to for adding the perfect touch of sparkle to your eyes.
When it comes to lips, you either keep them subtle or bring all the drama.
Subtle lips are the best choice if you’ve created a bold eye makeup look that deserves all the attention. When pairing lips with lighter eye makeup, a little lip drama will add a completely new element to your look.
If subtlety’s your cup of tea, try one of Mermaid Salon’s Liquid Velvet Lipsticks.
If you’re a mermaid who’s more on the daring side, use a creamy lipstick of your choice and then add a Mermaid Salon Pressed Glitter to the centre of your lips with a brush or a light dabbing of your index finger. This will completely reinvent your lip and make your lips appear more plump.
Glitter is essential and glow is no different!
Be as generous with your highlight as you wish. Take it along the high points of your face as well as your décolletage to accentuate your features and reflect your inner Mermaid magic!
I’d recommend anything frosty, or anything that has a pale pink or blue reflection.
If you really want to go that extra mile, try a Roll On Shimmer by BYS. You’ll definitely knock Ariel’s socks (or tail) off with all that gorgeous glitter!
