In this challenge created by @mintdreams I wanted to represent a mermaid, there are many mythological beings that I like a lot and I think I will do several, the first on my list was this.
Mermaids are mythological marine creatures, according to it is said that mermaids were beautiful women with the body of a fish, mermaids used to seduce men with their beautiful song but it is also said that a man who fell into the charms of a mermaid was condemned to death, that beauty they possessed, became something terrifying and that ultimately ended your life, we have no proof of this however the story is quite interesting, I would like to know if they actually exist or did exist, for this makeup I focus on the dark side of mermaids depicting it in a somewhat sinister way.
To start this makeup I applied base, then I started using a blue pigment to make some shadows on my forehead, cheekbones and around my eyes, at first it was a complete disaster, but I continued my mermaid adventure hahaha.
Continué agregando delineador liquido negro en todo mi parpado y con el mismo hice algunas rayas al rededor de mis ojos así como también hice una especie de escamas en mis pómulos y añadí sombra negra para darle un poco de profundidad, finalmente añadí los detalles en blanco usando pintura al frió, añadí mascara de pestañas y pinte mis labios de negro.
Cambien pinte parte de mi pecho, pero no veía nada sin is lentes así que parece mas bien unos golpes jaja
I continued adding black liquid eyeliner all over my eyelid and with it I made some stripes around my eyes as well as made a kind of scales on my cheekbones and added black shadow to give it a little depth, finally I added the white details using cold paint, added mascara and painted my lips black.
I also painted part of my chest, but I could not see anything without glasses so it looks more like a blow haha.
Once the makeup is finished, take the photos and then edit them, to give it an even more terrifying touch, intensify the colors and put my eyes totally black, also add an aquatic texture that will combine with the mermaid theme.
I hope you liked it and join this interesting challenge, quite difficult but in the end it is good to experience new things.
