The best part? You can achieve this mesmerizing look right from the comfort of your own home. So, get ready to unleash your inner sea siren and dive into the secrets of achieving the enchanting Mermaid Skin trend with ease.
To get started, imagine Ariel as she emerges from beneath the sea’s surface. Prep and prime your skin with radiant-inducing serums and primers to achieve that glossy, wet texture. After applying your face makeup, it’s time to inject some color. To nail the mermaid skin trend, you want to imagine certain parts of your face are “fish scales” that cast a cool-toned shimmer when the light hits just right. Danessa Myricks has a Colorfix Pigment in the shade “mermaid” to achieve that siren-like radiance. Dab a bit of this on the highest point of your cheekbones or wherever else you want to add a pop of color.
From there, it’s all about having fun with eyeshadows. We suggest sticking to shades, such as aquamarine andpurple, for the ultimate mermaid aesthetic. You can even accent your eye makeup with a glitter-based formula to bring out the eyes. Once complete, it’s time to set with everything yet another sparkle-filled product.
