Make a splash in sexy mermaid goddess makeup
You don’t necessarily have to be en route to a costume party to partake of mermaid-inspired makeup. The sexy sea nymph look is hot for summer and can be manipulated for a wild night on the town. Think lips that are glossy as the ocean, aqua or sand-hued eye shadows and lips painted with the colors of a beach sunset.
Regardless of your skin tone, mermaid makeup is all about extreme gloss, which looks wet, like you just emerged from the ocean. Your makeup palette should take its inspiration from the beach: sandy neutrals, aqua greens and sky blues are sure to look smoldering on eyes, lips, even cheeks.
A color depositing shampoo can give your hair a temporary red tint if you aspire to look like Ariel from The Little Mermaid, without resorting to a wig or extensions. A platinum wig with blue streaks is a tad more eccentric for those who dare to be the life of the (Halloween) party.
Actress Darryl Hannah was perhaps the most memorable maiden of the sea in Splash. The leggy blond played opposite Tom Hanks, whose character—a mortal man—falls in love with her. She exuded authentic sex appeal, not so much because she washed ashore topless, but because of her lovely long mane and bronzed complexion. --Stephanie Simons
