Boooo-ty Blog Coalition Link Up: Drugstore Mermaid Costume Makeup Tutorial

Photobucket
I have to say, I've been so excited about this post! It has been my favorite idea because all I used was easy to find drugstore makeup. From foundation to false lashes, the full tutorial is in the video below! I've also listed all the products below. I went with purple & blue, my favorite mermaid shades! This would work with an color combinations though, especially if they are well pigmented! I highly recommend the turquoise shade I used, it applied perfectly! To find out how I created this look & to check out the fabulous Halloween creations from other Beauty Blog Coalition members, just keep reading!



I won't go into too much detail about how I created it because you can just watch the tutorial above! Easy right? I picked up these fishnets for super cheap too in the costume section.

Lips:
- Revlon Lip Butter in Lip Butter
- L'Oreal Color Riche Le Gloss in The Mystics Shine

Obviously you can use any face makeup you want, but the keys to this mask look are definitely Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Single in Kitten, the Turquoise shade from the Wet n Wild Blue Had Me at Hello Palette, & the Jesse's Girl Pigment in Secret Weapon. Remember to pin the fishnets into place to make it easier to hold your place. Also, use a dense brush so you can pack opn the pigment, a light wash of color just won't look as scale-line.

I hope you guys like this look, I totally loved creating it. Plus, everything used is pretty easy to find & affordable! Can't beat that right? What do you guys think?
