Although mermaid waves are already well known as a must try summertime hair trend, the look of mermaid makeup is also making a splash- no pun intended! If you’ve been dreaming of transforming yourself into a mystical aquatic creature since childhood, mermaid makeup may be the perfect beauty trend.

Much like the tail of a mermaid, this inspired fad involves bursts of pastel blue, violet and pink. The colourful hues are applied to the visage with a fishtail effect, which offers the illusion of scales. Meanwhile, swirls of glitter, coloured brows and daring lip colours also help to complete the ultimate mermaid transformation.
Whether you prefer deep indigo lips or a sparkly pink pout, mermaid beauty can be incorporated in a variety of ways. In fact, some beauty gurus are also including vibrant winged eyeliner, glitter-infused eyelids and embellishment.
While the theatrical-looking beauty statement may not stay in place as you go for a dip in the ocean, mermaid eyes, lips and cheeks are certainly an artsy look. Combined with the season’s flowing locks and aquatic nail art, this just may help you complete your underwater inspired makeover!
