Okay so I don’t know any mermaids or if they wear their make up like this but I imagine they do! So this is my eye tutorial and I hope you like it.

For this look I use the Estee Lauder Steel orchid palette, so firstly I apply the shade ‘Waves’ all over the lip which is just a base colour. I feel this is the perfect shade for a base colour it is a natural colour. I then apply the shade ‘Peacock blue’ to the inner corner of the eye going outwards toward the edge of the eyes.


Then using the Mac brush 219SE I then apply a pink shade to the crease of the eyes. This is in the shade ‘Candy Crave’. This is very different to the blue colour but I love it! It has an amazing shimmer to it and the difference in colours is perfect of this look.

I then use the Rimmel black liquid eyeliner and crease a gentle flick in the eyes and apply some false eyelashes. These are the Eylure party eyelashes with some diamonte along the line of the lashes. To apply these, I place the glue along the edge of the eyelashes and leave to dry for about 20-30 seconds and then apply to the top of the eyelid.

I then apply the Benefit Bad gal lashes to the make my eyelashes blend into the false ones and make them look darker and longer! I love this final look and I hope you do too! (p.s as this went on my hair got more and more frizzy for some reason, so please excuse that!)

  1. Those eyelashes definitely make this look like what a mermaid would wear, and I think that’s a really cute inspiration. I’ve never used Estée Lauder eyeshadows; do you find they’re pigmented and last well?
