mermaid series #1 - beach dweller

My friend Courtney on Tumblr suggested that I do mermaid inspired makeup and instead of just doing one look, I've decided to turn this into a mini-series of looks! So here's the first look. This mermaid spends more time out in the sun (although you could never tell from my skin, even if I put on enough bronzer to make me orange) and prefers to swim in shallow waters or near the surface of the ocean. Since they're around sunlight, they're more likely to get a bit of a sunburn.

The blue eyebrows are what will connect the series until I branch out into more specific areas of the ocean. Let me tell you, it was definitely weird walking around my house with bright blue eyebrows and it was even more difficult to get the glitter off!
