How-To Pirates League Mermaid Makeup Video Tutorial

Remember awhile ago when I posted about the Pirates League and the awesome Mermaid Makeover they do there?

Well, I've been thinking about what a gorgeous look it is and how fun it would be to recreate it on your own.  Especially with Halloween coming up, it would be such a unique and striking look to use with a costume!  You could wear a very understated mermaid outfit with this makeup, and it would still completely transform you - it's so dramatic.

So I decided to try my hand at my own mermaid makeup!  I made my own fish scale stencil for the cheeks (I'll be posting a scan of it on here very soon!), and I used the Pirates League transformation as my inspiration.

It actually wasn't all that difficult, and I made a tutorial of it once I'd figured it out:

I know mermaids in the Pirates of the Caribbean Universe are supposed to be evil, but as soon as I hear "mermaid," I think of Ariel and all her nice friends.  So I couldn't resist throwing in some Under the Sea style into the video!

What do you guys think?  Would you become a mermaid for Halloween?

  1. So very cute! I may try this for our upcoming trip to WDW instead of spending a fortune at the Pirate's League! Thanks for the great tutorial!
