Create an easy Halloween look with everyday makeup: Mermaid

A model made to look like a mermaid using everyday makeup from Artistry.

Still need a Halloween costume?

Welcome to part two of our three-part series on creating a fun and easy Halloween look using only what’s in your makeup collection and maybe a few shades borrowed from your friends.

We supplied Phoenix-area makeup artist Maria Micsunecu with a variety of Artistry™ makeup and challenged her to create three easy-to-replicate looks for Halloween.

First was a captivating Cleopatra, find her look here. Today we have a marvelous mermaid. Instructions and products used are below the video. Stay tuned – next up will be a ghoulish “glampire.”

Marvelous Mermaid

  1. Blend in Artistry Youth Xtend™ Lifting Smoothing Foundation in Ochre and set with Artistry Exact Fit™ Perfecting Loose Powder in light.
  2. Use crayon side of Artistry Studio™ Limited Edition 2-in-1 Eye Stick in Tribeca Teal to fill in full eyelid and line under the eye.
  3. Fill middle of the lid with shade three from Artistry Signature Color™ Eye Shadow Quad in Smoky.
  4. Highlight cheek bones and temple with Luminescent White Pearl from the Artistry Studio™ Limited Edition Illuminating Light Up Compact.
  5. More blue! Use Artistry Signature Color™ Eye Shadow Quad in Smoky again, but this time use shade four on outside corners of the eye and shade two on inside corners.
  6. Add more highlights to cheekbones and temple using the Rosy Glowing Pink Pearl shade from the Artistry Studio™ Limited Edition Illuminating Light Up Compact
  7. Use shade five as pink blush from the Artistry Studio™ On-the-Go Face & Eye Palette in Liberty Light.
  8. Use Artistry Studio™ Tinted Lip Balm in City Coral for a moisturizing base. Then apply Artistry Signature Color™ Light Up Lip Gloss in Juicy Peach for a shimmer.
  9. Finish the look with Artistry Studio™ Lash Boosting 3-in-1 Mascara in Gotham Black and fill in brows with Artistry™ Automatic EyeBrow Pencil in taupe.
  10. Optional: Add some glitter from your craft cupboard for a scaly look!
