Summer Reading is upon us! With a theme like “Tails and Tales,” how could I not think of merpeople?
Since cosplay and makeup effects are one of my favorite hobbies, I wanted to share a little video tutorial so you can play along at home.
Here is what you’ll need to get started.
- Eyeshadow pallet. Any colors or brand you want to use, but the higher the pigmentation, the better.
- Brush or sponge. I used a makeup sponge in the tutorial, but a large makeup brush would work, too!
- Wig cap or fishnets. The wig cap is what gives you the scale pattern effect.
If you feel like going all out, combine a costume and a watery location! We’ll also have makeup kits available beginning Monday, June 14 while supplies last. If you are using curbside pickup, call and ask staff for a kit when you arrive. For ages 12-18.
We would love to see your finished look! Snap a pic and send it to us at email@example.com.
