Mermaid Makeup – Makeup Utopia Challenge

Welcome to the very first Makeup Utopia Face of the Day Challenge! First of all, let me explain how the challenge works.

Once a fortnight we will announce a theme. Over the course of the fortnight we will post 2 FOTD’s and one NOTD (nail of the day) inspired by that theme. We also invite you, the reader and Makeup Utopia member to create your own interpretation of the theme, and post it in on your blog or social media account.

This fortnight the theme is MERMAIDS! For the first look I wanted to create something wearable, with eyes inspired by the depths of the ocean. Here’s what I came up with:
Mermaid 1

Mermaid 2

Mermaid 3
