"Mesmerizing Mermaid"

 Hey you guys! It's one of my favorite times of the year, FALL! And with that comes HALLOWEEN! You obviously know I love to play with makeup and I like to do things for Halloween that I don't normally do throughout the year. 

  This year I decided to try a pack I found at Target, just to see how well it could come out and basically do a review//how-to makeup look. It was only $5-$7 and was by Wet N Wild. Normally I don't purchase much Wet N Wild products the quality isn't that great. This one was called "Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers 'Mesmerizing Mermaid'" It wasn't crazy expensive so I thought I'd give it a try. It came with stencils, paint, and eyeliner.

 Here is what I came up with. Now, I sent a picture to a few friends and I had one come back saying I looked like a lizard rather than a mermaid. So, I'll be optimistic and say it's versatile. If you'd like to go out as a reptile instead, HERE YOU GO!

All I really did was use one of the stencils that look like scales on my forehead and the upper part of my cheek bones, where highlighter would normally be applied.  I only used the gold, green and white colors. I also used the eyeliner that was in the pack on my lash line, upper and lower. This is actually a great eyeliner that I may use for other occasions. :) But other than that, I'm not the GREATEST when it comes to costume makeup, but I think it turned out okay. :) Be honest and tell me what you think!

Here is everything else that I used to complete the look.

Maybelline Coverstick Corrective Concealer(green)--I used this before ANYTHING
Maybelline FitMe Foundation (222)
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (vanilla)
Covergirl TruBlend Pressed Powder(translucent medium)
NYX Cheek Contour Duo Palette(chcd01)

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick
NYX Matte Finish Spray

Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil (335 green)--This is the majority of what's on my eye lids

LOreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara (midnight black)
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (trooper)
Fright Night Shimmering Lashes

Covergirl Colorlicious Gloss (melted toffee)

PS..I did have to edit the pictures a little bit so that you could actually see a little detail. I only have an iPhone and use natural lighting. I'm looking into a better way to get better quality pictures. So bear with me!
