Quynn Larsen| 06 Oct, 2020

We are so excited to launch our custom Mermaid Costume!  You can find all great costumes from Sparkle In Pink here!

We had so much fun doing the hair and makeup for this Mermaid Costume, that we thought it would be fun to share with our amazing customers and give you some ideas!  🧜‍♀️😊


Makeup For Kids Mermaid Costume:

Items you will need: (Also pictured below)

1. Pink & Blue Glitter loose glitter- We picked up at Michaels craft store, you can find at most craft stores or beauty stores.

 2. Starfish- We got the starfish pack below at Michaels, and used the smaller starfish in the pack. 

3. Stick on blue & pink gems and pearls, we got in the sticker section at Michaels. You can find at most craft stores.

4. Blue and Pink Temporary Hair Chalk, we got from Ulta. We also got glitter hair spray from Ulta.

5. Light Pink Liquid Eyeshadow- We used Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow 

6. Light Pink Lipgloss- We used covergirl lipgloss

7. Gel Glitter- We used the gel glitter to put on her arms for fun! Totally optional!

Mermaid Makeup For Kids

  1. To create a scale look on the face we used fishnet tights from Walmart, and cut a piece off and held it on her face. We used green and blue shimmery eyeshadow and brushed that over the fishnet tights, so when you take it off, you have a fish scale look! It was super easy to do and such a fun detail to the costume that kids will love! 😍Here is a close up shot, the scale makeup was even prettier in person!
  2. We used the pink shimmer liquid eyeshadow for the eyes and next to the scales. Since it's a wet eyeshadow we topped it with the loose pink & blue glitter to add ever more shimmer!
  3. Once that was done we used the pink & blue sticker gems and pearl stickers on the side of the eyes. 
  4. We then placed the starfish on the side using eyelash glue to stick it on.
  5. We finished off the makeup look with a little mascara and pink lipgloss.
  6. Also, for a final touch you can add glitter on the arms! ✨

        Does the makeup stay on all day or do you have to use a setting spray?

        Excelente idea, mi pequeña está a punto de cumplir años y quiere la temática de la sirenita en su fiesta, 😍 encontrar esta boutique en este momento fue lo mejor que pudo sucederme justo ahora. ✨🤩

        I am just browsing through the blog. I love mermaids so I stopped. This look is absolutely gorgeous! I can’t wait until my 2 year can sit still a little longer than 2 minutes and attempt to recreate.

        Wow so beautiful. The scale look was the best tip I’ve seen to really get that mermaid look.

        Most likely… I can’t imagine Little Mermaid as anything but redhair. The live performance featured Arial as a redhead.
