Hello everyone and welcome to my first ever blog post!
In this tutorial I will teach you how to recreate
this creative mythical mermaid-ish fairy makeup.
Of course I don't expect all of you to recreate this exact look but maybe you can take something particular from it.
STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL:
Step 1: Using the green out of the Diamond-FX Metallic Palette I first drew on the outlines of the scales on my forehead.
I painted every single scale individually and worked my way up from the eyebrows reaching my hairline.
Step 2: Next, I filled in the center of my forehead with a transition from dark purple to very light purple.
For that I used the purple out of the Metallic Palette and then mixed in white out of the Essential Palette.
Step 3: I filled in the scales I painted on before using the yellow out of the Metallic Palette again mixed with the white out of the Essential Palette.
Step 4: I then wanted to add some shine to the scales just to make it look more interesting. For that I mixed Sugarpill's pigment in Goldilux and NYX's Roll on Shimmer with a mixing medium and applied it to the inner part of the scales. Also I added some pattern to the center of my forehead using the purple paint. I created the transition effect by going over it lightly with a fluffy brush and some of the white paint.
Step 5: Next I applied the white paint to the areas where the light would naturally hit my face like the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and so on.
Step 6: Then, I blended the My Beauty Addiction eyeshadow in combination with the MAC eyeshadow above my crease.
Step 7: I applied the black eyeshadow from the Basics Palette onto the outer third of my eye blending it into my crease and into the purple.
Step 8: Afterwords, I applied Goldilux and NYX's Taupe onto the remaining parts of my upper eyelid.
Step 9: Using the green and the blue out of the Metallic Palette, I repeated the process of painting the scales on my cheek. Make sure to attend your cheekbone structure and don't paint under where your cheekbone ends.
Step 10: I also created the transition in step ten using a fluffy brush and some of the white paint going over it with a light hand.
Step 11: Next, I drew on big scales on my neck very roughly using a mixture of the black paint out of the Essential Palette and again the green out of the Metallic one.
Step 12: Then, I filled in the inner edges with only green paint.
Step 13: I filled in the rest of the scales with purple.
Step 14: Lastly, I applied some white paint in the middle of the scales and blended everything together. I also applied some glitter.
Step 15: For the eyebrows, I cut the sequins into little peaces and glued them on with Lash Glue.
Step 16: Next, I applied mascara and fake lashes.
Step 17: To finish off the look, I created fish shaped lips! For that, I first muted my natural lip color with white paint. Next, I outlined the shape of the lips using the dark blue out of the Essential Palette. Next, I blended in bits of the metallic purple and green and lastly added the grey out of the Metallic Palette to the center of my lips.
WE'RE DONE !!!
