"The Little Mermaid" Inspired Makeup Look! (Collab)

Hello lovelies! It’s finally time for a collaboration post! The theme for this collab is our favorite Disney movies, so we each chose a particular film and created a look based on it.  This post was made in partnership with EmilyBurnsMUA, she has a great love for makeup but is also an extremely sweet person! Definitely check out her blog (linked above) and what Disney movie she chose to create a look on (here). Thanks so much Emily for working with me and brainstorming such awesome ideas!

Since I have lived very close to Disneyland my entire life, I am very familiar with the park and have grown up watching movies from them. “The Little Mermaid” has always been my favorite movie from Disney, since I related to the ocean theme so much. I spent my childhood either in our pool, in the ocean, or on the sand so it seemed fitting to try and create an Ariel inspired look. At first and after a bit of research, I attempted to create a look from the colors of her tail, which is a beautiful green/teal shade. However, green was NOT the color for me and simply wasn’t working. However, I love the shade of her little seashell top, so I created the look you’ll see today! Makeup is all about trial and error, but when you create a look you adore, it’s all worth it!



As you can see, I got very into the bright blues and purples. I’ve never done a look quite like this before, but I really love how it turned out. I used three palettes to achieve this look: Naked 3 from Urban Decay, the Purple Palette from Kylie Cosmetics, and the Jaclyn Hill palette.

Firstly, I placed a light pink shade from Naked 3 with a Morphe fluffy brush to work as my transition shade. I then took a slightly darker mauve color from Naked 3 and placed it along my crease to blend into the transition shade. I then cut my crease with a creamy concealer from Nars.


After cutting the crease, I took a metallic dark blue shade from the Jaclyn Hill palette and places it on my outer V and inner corner to create a halo effect. I also ran this color along my crease to blend with that beautiful mauve shade. These two blended together a lot better than I was expecting! Of course throughout this entire look I would have to go back with past colors and blend to make sure everything looked seamless and airbrushed.

I then took a rounded flat brush, sprayed it with the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray and dipped into a bright teal metallic from Jaclyn Hill. That was placed on the very center of my lid and blended with that dark blue. Quite a bit of blending took place between these two to create the perfect halo eye! To darken up the look, I took a burgundy/purple shade from the Purple Palette and placed it ever so slightly on my outer V. To add a bit of detail work, I took a light purple and metallic pink shade from the same palette and placed it on my inner corner to blend with the dark blue. Details are everything, people!



Speaking of details, I placed a bit of the metallic teal on the center of my lower lash line. A mix of a couple purple shades were then used on the outer and inner sections of my lower lash line. Make sure to blend that lower line to the outer corner when you finish up the look! The last bit of eyeshadow to be applied was inspired by small details found in “The Little Mermaid” movie, which are the little bubbles you see floating around in nearly every scene of the film! To mimic these features of the ocean, I took a white cream eyeshadow from NYX, the end of an eyeshadow brush, and made small dots along my winged eyeliner and one on my inner corner. I think this really made the look unique to the movie and gives a cool festival vibe. This would also look nice above the eyebrow, if you wanted to go crazy with it for a party or event.


Of course I threw on a pair of my favorite falsies (Eye Spy lashes) and a lovely nude lip from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Also, since I obviously do not have bright red hair like Ariel, I opted for a brick colored sweater that is so insanely cozy. We’ve been getting some chilly weather here in SoCal lately, so it was perfect! I hope this look emanates the vibe of “The Little Mermaid” and that you guys enjoyed! Definitely check out Emily’s look over on her blog and please feel free to leave any comments or questions about products below! Talk to you all soon!

    I love the take on using the seashells! I feel like every Little Mermaid look I’ve ever seen focuses on the tail, but the color palette here is so gorgeous and works so well together! Well done!
