Why Mermaid Beauty Is A Trend We’re Obsessed With


Make waves with sea-inspired beauty

Ever idolised Ariel growing up? Us too – hence why we’re all over the new trend for mermaid makeup that seems to be hitting the beauty world big time. From Glasto to Love Box, we spotted lots of festival-goers were wearing “siren sequins” dotted over their cheekbones up to the eyebrow. Add to that some flowing tresses and luminous skin and you have yourselves a trend. Move over unicorns – mermaids have taken centre spotlight. Here are some essentials you’ll want to make Part of Your World

These gloriously green chunks of shiny gorgeousness are the colour of a mermaid’s tail and perfect for festivals, club nights – hell you can even sport them to the newsagents if you’re feeling brave enough. Just dot some Vaseline over your cheekbones and sprinkle on liberally. You can even dot a few over your lipstick or tousle through your hair. £4 BeautyBay
