I've created a mermaid inspired NYE look because I like mermaids and I like glitter. It was actually really quick and easy to do and I deffo wanna recreate this is another time with different glitter/lipstick.

Silver Face Gems (not photographed)

The eye shadow was a lot darker and smokier than this, my stupid camera can never photograph eye shadow well for some reason. So, in a nutshell, a packed the highlight shade from my Kat Von D palette into the corners of my eyes to give a nice highlight, and covered my lid in the Base shade. I then layered High, from the Smokey palette, over the top to give some shimmer and a final layer of Amour. I blended Smoulder into the outer V because shimmery purple and mermaids just go hand in hand really. Obvs I did a classic cat eye, that's just a standard in most of my makeup looks. I duuno why, but my eyes always look a lot more tired when I'm not wearing eye liner, anyone else get that?

I do love a face gem, so I dotted five along the top of each lid. Tbh, I think this alone would look pretty sick for NYE without the glitter. To stick the glitter on, I used a concealer brush to 'paint' on some vaseline (yes, vaseline!) in a triangle underneath each eye - honestly, vaseline works a treat for sticking glitter onto ya face, and obvs it's really gentle so it won't irritate your skin!

For the lipstick, I couldn't not go for blue. IMO the blue lipstick just transforms it into a mermaid look!
