Mermaid Halloween Look | RITrick Or RITreat

Mermaid Halloween Look RITrick Or RITreat - River Island

I’m wrapping up Halloween with this final makeup look, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it! River Island challenged me to do a #RITrick or #RITreat look, so with a bag of goodies I set out on a mission.

I applied my makeup as normal, using Barry M Showgirl mascara for extra length, and the Sleek Storm palette for my eyes, using Barry M black dazzle dust on the corners. For an extra bit of oomph, I lined my eyes using the Collection silver glitter gel liner.

The next thing I did was a first for me. Looking very glamorous, I put a pair of fishnet tights over my head, making sure the material was taught and wouldn’t move. Using the same Sleek palette as before, I applied some of the shimmery shades and dabbed it on using a makeup brush.

My lips are a blend of the Makeup Revolution lipstick in Serpent on the outer corners, and Depraved in the middle, blended together to create a beautiful ombré effect. For finally touches, I applied some beautiful metallic gold temporary tattoos, and a delicate choker. I also painted my nails with a base coat of Barry M Racing Green, with a coat of Mermaid on the top – very appropriate!
