I had been planning to do this type of look for several month now, gathering supplies that I thought would be awesome for this look. I really wanted to focus my Halloween looks this year on things that are whimsical and enchanting and being from Hawaii where the oceans are blue and pristine, I thought a mermaid would be a perfect choice. I have always been intrigued by Fairies and Mermaids my entire life... so since I am doing a Pixie/Mermaid Tutorial, I thought this was the perfect fit. I was super stoked to also get some awesome Contacts from http://Candycolorlenses.com. The contacts I am using are the Azalea Green contacts. They are gorgeous and while the camera didn`t quite pick it up - they have beautiful little designs of flowers in them, beautiful.

Although that part cut out in the video, I wanted to state that I went back in and blended out the glitter so it wasn`t harsh dots but had a nice glitter affect. I also pulled the fish net back over my head and dabbed in some NYX White Eye Shadow base and over that I went with I-Candy Couture`s Eye Shadow in Happy Thoughts. Happy Thoughts is a duo chrome iridescent and has purple and pink iridescent when used over a white or black base, so I thought this was perfect to make the scales look more like scales and to bring out the pretty look that fish have. If any of you have read the book "Rainbow Fish" to your children, you know what I`m talking about. :) I also blended out the NYX glitter that I applied as dots - not on purpose though - it was a mistake. I pulled the fish net stocking back over my head and it smeared... but I like the effect it gave. It looked a lot more natural.
I hope you guys like the tutorial. I posted more photos so you could see. I Chroma-keyed in an ocean background for an added twist and added a beautiful Plumeria to my ear. Since I`m from Hawaii and it was a Hawaiian mermaid look - I figured, what more says a Hawaiian Maiden like a pua (flower) in the ear. Enjoy and thank you for watching and reading!
