Nereid Undercurrent Tutorial

I saw that Makeup Geek is having a Mermaid Inspired contest this week. I had to come up with a look! I kept bright teal out of it, as well as lime green, to try something softer and new.

Dave chose all the photos today.

How to achieve the look:

  1. Prep the eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
  2. Use a fluffy brush to lightly apply Sugarpill Tako to the browbone and blend downwards.
  3. Use a fluffy brush to lightly apply Illamasqua Feline to the lower browbone.
  4. Use a fluffy brush to lightly apply Illamasqua Fatal to the crease.
  5. Use a crease brush to apply Illamasqua Intense to the lower crease, outer corner of the lid and the outer lower lash line.
  6. Apply Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy to the lid.
  7. with a stiff brush, apply Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure Opal to the lid. Then lightly dust it on the crease and browbone.
  8. Apply Nyx Silver to the inner v, blending it outwards along the lower lash line. Add a tiny bit of Fatal where the colors meet.
  9. Apply demi lashes.
  10. Use a bent eyeliner brush to apply MAC Siahi to the upper lash line and lower waterline.
  11. Apply Fyrinnae Winter, Again to the inner corners of the eye and under the browbone. Fill in your brows & you’re done!

      Wow, you look gorgeous! I love the wig too. And Dave chose the photos? I’m surprised by the lack of um, things below the neck line. ;)

      Mermaid-licious. Totally how mermaids would do their eyes. I love the blue sparkles from the Sparklicity Pure Opal and how you kept the brows teal.

      I love the colors! That opal shade is enchanting, and this is the coolest wig I’ve seen on you so far. Where do you buy those wigs?
