    Eye makeup opinions

    I fully admit it, I'm not experienced with wearing makeup. Whenever I look at myself with makeup, even if it's been professionally done, I can't help but think that I look ready for Halloween.

    So, I'm trying out a few different looks for my mermaid makeup- something I know I need, because I look like a corpse underwater. I tried a couple of different things with my eyes today. Does it look as weird as I think, or am I being overly critical?



    Any suggestions?

    Personally, I think it looks lovely! If you're not a fan of wearing a ton of eyeshadow, or bold colors, this is perfect. It's subtle, but it appears to be shimmery and that's eye-catching. Very pretty.

    I think it is awesome, but I like to wear shiny eye shadow all the time. A bright orange or yellow could look nice on you too. I find that I really like to wear gold or silver eye shadow. Silver eye shadow is definitely subtle, but gives a nice look.

    I haven't checked the other makeup topics before, but here is a tip: I always put my eye shadow on with water. I get the brush, little makeup foam thing, or whatever and get it a little wet, then I get the makeup on it, and the makeup will usually be much more vibrant if you put it on using water and also, it will stay on better when you swim with your makeup on. I have all kinds of makeup -cheep kinds, better kinds, etc and so far putting it on with water seems to work very well.

    I'm not normally a makeup person either; I like my face just fine in its natural state. But mermaiding is theatre, and theatre kinda requires makeup. So I just googled "mermaid eye makeup" and found all sorts of great ideas. Also check Raina's tutorials; she's an expert!

    And I think what you did here looks great!

    I'm going against what everyone else is saying, if you say you look like a corpse then you need some brighter purples, maybe some pinks or greens, and I know it was just your eyes but you'll need a good amount of blush and lipstick if you want a non-corpse look since you are pale (I'm also pale, so I totally get this, and I"m not anti-natural, etc etc) but I think the makeup is pretty for a dry party, but underwater if you want it to show up, your gonna need more.

    ^ good point. It depends on how much of an impact you want to make. Like they recommend for bellydance/stage makeup, you really need to apply more than you think you should in order for people from a distance (including photographers) to even see. And the fact that mermaids are this fun, mythical creature... I mean, having a tail is pretty crazy. Don't be afraid to let your makeup match.

    Looks pretty good. I would say for the color of your eyes a light green would look better sence you have light colored eyes.

    There is this great free software online that you can take a picture of yourself and do a virtual makeover and try so many different makeup options without wasting any real makeup! http://www.taaz.com/

    i can hardly see your eye lashes in the second pic. maybe some mascara would help the overall look as well.

    I was a weirdo and thought it would be a good idea to show you an example of what the virtual makeover thing can do. Its pretty useful! I cant find the site that doesnt require an account to save a picture though. :/

    I like it, but I think the main determinate for what colors to wear is what color your tail(s) are.

    My tail is purple, and most of my accessories are pearl. Thus, my name

    I tried something a bit heavier. Thoughts?



    Excuse the wet hair, I tested this look in the shower. MUFE aqua eyes and aqua cream eyeshadow. It didn't budge! I'm quite proud of the little dots.

    This looks great! You have beautiful eyes, I also think something like this (Picture underneath) would look pretty on you as well.

    Last one for now! I promise!

    I figured maybe I should try it with the rest of the make up. And accessories. Ok, I just wanted to play dress up.



    The smile also helps, I think

    Including all the bits and bobs always seems to make a difference! You look lovely!
    You could try a bit of eyebrow definer, but with the eye shadow it runs the risk of being too much. You can always have a play though
