It's crunch time. We're halfway through October and Halloween is almost here. Last year I posted several Halloween looks that were great last-minute or low-cost ideas because they revolved around the makeup, not the outfit. For this year's first Halloween look I'm following the same train of thought with a mermaid makeup tutorial. You can pair this with any turquoise or blue skater dress, glitter top or scale print skirt. For this I took part of the #NeutrogenaFaceOff challenge to help me take all of this off at the end of the night using the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes which I purchased from Walmart.

Here is how you can achieve these teal sequined mermaid eyes:


1. Apply your favorite moisturizer and face primer.
2. Use a matte or long wearing foundation to even out your skin tone, conceal blemishes and redness.
3. Using a teal green eyeshadow, apply it from the inner corners of the eyes to the hairline. Take it underneath the lash line as well.
4. Darken the outer V with black eyeshadow. Use what's left on the brush to contour the sides of the nose and cheekbones.
5. Use a white liquid liner to paint over your eyebrows. Create different sized speckles on the outer corners and down your nose.
6. Apply white multi-dimensional glitter to the center of the lids.
7. Make your eyelashes appear white using the same white liquid liner you used on the brows.
8. Glue sequins to your face using eyelash glue. I got mine from the crafts section at Walmart.

The rest of the face is up to you. This will make the look more subtle or more dramatic depending on your preference. I used the same seafoam green eyeshadow that I used on the center of the lids as blush. I highlighted the bridge of my nose and the top of my cheekbones heavily with both a liquid highlighter (the L'Oreal Magic Lumi Primer) and powder highlighter. To achieve the lips, I used a pink lipstick all over and patted a turquoise cream eyeshadow on the center (Maybelline Color Tattoo in Edgy Emerald).

Removing your makeup after Halloween is always a pain. It's best to try and remove as much as you can using a makeup towelette (such as the ones from Neutrogena) before using a separate remover and cleanser. These work well for regular makeup removal as well as getting off tougher items like glued sequins. 

Let me know if you've already started to plan your Halloween makeup looks. What were your inspirations? Afterwards I challenge you to take it all off using the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes and join the #NeutrogenaFaceOff!
