Do Mermaids Wear Makeup?

Probably not 🙂 but that is not going to stop us right? Let’s dive in.

Mermaid Eyeliner

Get some classic mermaid color eyeliner for a little “pop” around your eyes. This is a small tool that can help you achieve major impressions. Use a little to make people double take as you are going day to day, or make it really dramatic for a party or mermaid parade.

Could you draw a mermaid tail on your eyelid?

Mermaid eyeshadow

This can also pair with the mermaid eyeliner for a dramatic look, or you can wear solo. So many fun dramatic colors!
