15 Mermaid-Inspired Makeup Ideas You Can Wear Every Day

What is it about mermaids that has us so obsessed? The fact that they’re magical and have gorgeous fins obviously has something to do with it. But, I think the big thing is that their beauty looks are on point. That’s why there are approximately 1,328 mermaid beauty products you can buy at the moment.

I’m all for channeling your inner mermaid, but I know that it can be difficult when it’s not Halloween. It takes a specific kind of person to pull off a seashell bra and crown every day of the year, and I know it’s not me. I doubt it’s you, too. Don’t fret because there are some subtler mermaid-inspired makeup looks that are just as pretty as the full-out, fins-and-all looks. They still have a clear mermaid inspiration, but they don’t make it look like you’re dressing up as some character. Here are 15 pretty mermaid makeup ideas that you can actually wear every day.

1. Purple And Brown Eyeshadow

I’m in love with this unexpected color combination.


2. Blue Eyeshadow And Flicked Eyeliner

Concerned this is a bit much? You can get rid of the little rhinestones and shimmer dots. However, I encourage you to try them.


3. Red Eyeshadow And Pink Lipstick

This color combination is just as pretty as blue and purple.


4. Pink And Lips

Instead of the eyes, make your lips the focus. You can blend this as much (or as little) as you like.


5. Holographic And Brown Eyeshadow

You CAN get away with a pop of purple on the lids for day.


6. Pink Cat Eye And Eyeshadow

Break the rules and try a light eyeliner with a darker eyeshadow.


7. Glitter Eyes And Deep Pink Lips

Put a pinch of glitter on the very center of the eyes.


8. Holographic Eyes

The first order of business is finding a holographic eyeshadow.


9. Aqua And Pink Eyeshadow

It’s my mission to get you to love bright eyeshadows for everyday.


10. Deep Purple Eyeshadow

Hello, girls’ night out.


11. Smokey Black Eye With Blue

Make this your new going out look. The hint of blue in the smokey eye gives it clear mermaid vibes.


12. Light Green Eye Makeup

That touch of pale green transforms this eye makeup. Love, love, love.


13. Pink Eyeshadow And Lips

Work make up. Mermaid eyes ? Finally starting to feel better. It's been nearly 5 weeks of a lot of medicine, a rush to the hospital and not a lot of sleep but on the mend now.

Don’t forget about pink, okay?


14. Purple Eyeshadow and Blue Eyeliner

That injection of blue liner, though. You can tone this down a bit more by using mascara instead of the false eyelashes.


15. Shimmering Blue Eyeshadow And Pink Lips

Today's mermaidy look ?? It's my second attempt with this colour combo and I didn't like how it went out last time. Today is better, but I still feel like that's not "it". So you can probably expect similar looks in the future ? @catrice.cosmetics @wetnwildbeauty @maybelline @goldenrosepolska @wibopl @makeuprevolution @thebalm_cosmetics @lagirlcosmetics @zoevacosmetics @bell.cosmetics @nyxcosmetics_pl @nyxcosmetics @kontigo @drogerienatura @ardell_pl #makeup #makeupoftheday #motd #wakeupandmakeup #makeupaddict #makeupjunkie #makeuplover #makeupinspiration #powerofmakeup #makeuppassion #makeuplove #inspiration #makeupworld #dailymakeup #everydaymakeup #eyeliner #lips #glitter #glittermakeup #makeupmafia #mermaid #mermaidmakeup

Do not be scared of blue eyeshadow. It’s easy to pull off, especially with a black cat eye.
