Having raised 4 children, three of which are girls, I have truly come to appreciate the importance of fairy tale characters, especially that of the princess. So with the aide of my two aspiring artists and youngest of the clan, we present the Mermaid Princes makeup.
Face Paint Colors:
* Mehron Hydra Sponge Cut the sponge in half for easier handling.
Step 1. With a clean face and hair pulled back you are ready to begin.
Step 2. Use the Hydra sponge and Deep Sea Blue for the outer edge. Note we follow down the neck line and across the collar bone.
Step 3. Apply the Aquacolor Teal with the Hydra sponge to the remaining face and neck area, blending with the darker color. Take care to get close to the bottom eye line.
Step 4. With larger scale portion of the template over forehead, get a liberal amount of the DFX Metallic Green on the sponge and dab over the template on the forehead area.
Step 5. Now Use the same method on the side of the face.
Step 6. Use the small scales of the template for the neck area.
Step 6. Use the medium contour brush for eye makeup.The Strauss Wine will be the first color applied to the eyelid, stay to the upper portion of the eyelid along eyebrow line.
Step 7. Just below the first shade add the silver with your contour brush, leaving a portion of the eyelid teal.
Step 8. Use contour brush and Strauss wine to color lips.
Step 9. Use the Mehron Gold Glitter for the dots on the eyebrows.
Step 10. Use the powder brush to apply the Cosmic Violet for blush.
Step 11. Apply poofable glitter, make sure the subject keeps eyes closed and head back for best results.
Step 12. Spritz the final seal over the make up to help prevent smudging.
*We added a necklace, hair color and flower to complete the look in our final photo.
