Mermaid-Inspired Makeup Look

So last week was my birthday. I didn't do much but one thing I did do was go to the movies. (To see TFIOS. Again.). We went during the morning to take advantage of the lower prices and then grabbed some macarons across the street.

Even though it was a low-key day I really wanted to do a fun makeup look. I completed the look with a wig that I recently got and from there I just felt so confident.

Enough talk, let me show you the look! Unfortunately because we were rushing to make a movie, I didn't get a ton of pictures.


I loosely based this look off of a youtube video I saw a couple days before, and it must have really resonated with me because I mimicked the color combination.


I used mostly Profusion Cosmetics products for this really! First I applied a NYX chubby pencil in Peacock then patted the teal-blue eyeshadow from this Profusion palette on top. I smoked out the top with the purple shade also from that palette. I used the Urban Decay Naked palette to blend out and highlight my brow bone. I also lined my bottom lid with the purple and blended it out, and lined my waterline with Peacock.


This wig guys. come on! I would love if my real hair looked like this. The length, the color, the curliness. I love it!!

I wore a blue crop top from Target and amazing holographic leggings. I really wish I got a better picture of my outfit because I think it helped with the mermaid vibes!

I'm honestly pretty obsessed with this look.
Finally my lips were a subtle ombre. I'm wearing MAC Punk Couture on the outside and NYX Macaron Lippie in Violet in the center.


So what do you think? You think I rocked this look on my birthday? :P
I definitely want to attempt this look again and get better pictures. Maybe even with a real tutorial!
