Who says mermaids aren't real? As a 29-year old woman, am I embarrassed that I received a mermaid tail blanket for Christmas last year? No. It's like all my dreams from my childhood were finally coming true. And now that it's Halloween, it's the perfect time to sit down with some mermaid makeup tutorials and get ready to make that transformation to live under the sea.
Mermaids have been making a huge splash this year, taking over Instagram feeds, launching TV shows... I have seen four people wear mermaid shirts this past weekend alone, and I have no doubt this is going to be one of the hottest costumes of Halloween 2017. And why not? These aquatic creatures are sexy, flirty, mysterious. And there are so many different variations of mermaids you can choose from.
There are the the fairy-tale versions we have all seen in storybooks such as Disney's Little Mermaid. And then there are the sirens who are a little more on the evil side, luring sailors off course, leading them to their murky deaths. Whatever mermaid you choose, just know there are a lot of makeup tutorials out there — whether you're a makeup pro or need something really basic — to help you transform into one of these beautiful, mystical creatures.
