The unicorn beauty trend might be getting lots of festival traction these days, but let’s not forget about the magical creature that kickstarted this whole otherworldly extravaganza in the first place – mermaids! If you’ve been looking for a way to bring a little blue makeup back into your life, you have come to the right place. Just in time for festival season, L’Oreal Paris Makeup Director Noni Smith has dreamed up a fantastic aqua mermaid makeup look that’ll give the unicorn trend a run for its money.

What you’ll need:
- Infallible Metallic Paint Eyeshadow in Diamond
- Infallible Paint Eyeshadow in Eternal White
- La Petite Mini Eyeshadow Palette Optimist
- Infallible Gel Liner in I’ve Got The Blue target="_blank" rel="noopener"
- Infallible Gel Liner in Vava Voum
- Paradise Kajal Liner
- L’Oréal Paris Volume Million Mascara
STEP 1: CREATE YOUR BASE
Apply the teal shade from La Petite Mini Eyeshadow Palette Optimist to your lid, buffing the edges out so colour is visible when the eye is open. Layer a darker shade along the lash line, softening the edges.
STEP 2: BLUE FLAMES
Outline the flame pattern using Infallible Gel Liner in I’ve Got The Blue and Vava Voum, creating contrast between the darker and lighter colours. Use the dark blue to lift the outer corners of the eyes and the light blue to draw attention to the brow bone.
STEP 3: LINE YOUR EYES
Define your eyes with a thin line of Paradise Kajal Liner on your upper and lower lash lines. Extend the upper lash line outwards into a slight wing.
STEP 4: SPARKLE TIME
Using a mix of Infallible Paint Eyeshadow, add depth and drama to your eye makeup. Open up the inner corners with a dash of Eternal White shimmer and add two downward streaks of Infinite Blue on your lower lash line. Lend your lids some extra sparkle with Diamond and Infinite Blue.
STEP 5: LASH DRAMA
Grab your Volume Million Mascara and coat your bottom lashes before moving on to the top. Voila!
