Hey everyone!! So, I'm starting makeup school in a few weeks and I wanted to work on a merman look. Natural, yet fantasy inspired. Any ideas on how I should make it look?

how about a beard? most mermen are pictures with loads of facial hair. some fish scales and "barnacles" around the eyes could work too.

I've seen quite a few mermen go for more tribal/native american inspired makeup, and Tikva had cute clip-in accessories in his beard for example! =)

scratch my idea. tribal sounds more awesome.

I think that you might want to look at tribal tattoos (traditional ones from around the world) cause I can imagine mermen using squid ink to tattoo themselves and make themselves look more fearsome/intimidating, cause I think mers would be quite territorial creatures out in the ocean just like we are about land.
