Summer Glow Trend ~ Mermaid Makeup Look with Ocean Blue Eyes and Silvery Highlight ~ One Last Beach Trip 🌊 ☀️
Happy Saturday, lovelies!
I’m back like I promised I would be, here with a second-to-last summer glow trend makeup look for you. I promised you guys at the beginning of summer I would showcase a few of these, and I wanted to deliver on that promise! I know it’s pretty late, heck, it’s been in the 50s here where I live for the past week! (That’s 50 degrees Fahrenheit for my non-American readers, not sure the Celsius conversion, sorry 😐)
But I do live pretty far north, so maybe some of your are still enjoying summer weather, perhaps even planning one last venture to the beach or the pool? If so, this makeup look is perfect for you to try, as it looks quite like a mermaid, if I do say so myself!
As you can see, this is a poolside perfect makeup look that looks good on all skin tones and eye colors. Shimmery sea-blue eyeshadow is alluring while a metallic true silver shadow adds dimension and shine to the eyes. Blue glitter eyeliner and blue mascara add the finishing touches to this aquatic makeup look. Optional, but if you want to kick it up a notch and you have the confidence, try blending a bit of the two eyeshadow shades together (the silver and the sea blue) and brushing a light amount onto the areas of your face that you’d normally apply highlight. This assures you’ll shine brighter than sunlight dancing on beach waves 🌊
Ideally, keep the rest of the face bare or natural, including brows and lips. Forego foundation if you can, instead try tinted BB cream with SPF. It’ll give you a slight tint and smoother complexion sort of like foundation, plus you get SPF and moisturizing all in one. Also, it’ll look more natural, and give your skin a more dewy radiance, perfect for sunshine activities (while we still have them!) ☀️ Here, I kept my brows natural, simply brushed out with a clean mascara wand and slicked in place with clear brow gel. You can tell that I was pretty liberal with the makeshift blue-silver mermaid highlighter. It may seem intimidating, but it was actually very pretty and flattering, especially since you could really only see it in certain (direct) light. I felt like a diamond 💎 and a mermaid, of course!
So there you have it! Perfect makeup look, pretty sea blue and mermaid silver, eyes matching highlight! I have one last summer glow trend makeup look I plan on sharing, but luckily this one works as well in fall as it does in summer, so no rush on it~ What do you guys think of this look? Would you ever channel your inner mermaid and pull it off? Maybe next year, yes? Lemme know what you think in the comments, as always I’d love to hear from you all! Have a great weekend!
