At some point, I think we've all wanted to become a mermaid. As a little kid, I was dead set on someday becoming a mermaid so I could live in Atlantis and float around with my BFF Princess Ariel and her sea critter squad, of course.
So as you can probably imagine, I was pretty bummed when someone crushed my mermaid dreams by informing me I would never have the necessary gills and fins to live underwater.
I mean, seriously, it's 2016. You think scientists would have figured out how to turn us all into mutant mermaids by now. But hey, just because you can't be the real underwater deal doesn't necessarily mean you can't live out your deep sea daydreams by embracing your inner mermaid on a daily basis.
Yep, from fish scale fashions and stunning sea accessories, there are all sorts of things you can do to make yourself look like a mesmerizing mermaid IRL. However, I think it's safe to say my favorite fishy fad is mermaid makeup.
That's right. Mermaid-inspired makeup is the latest trend taking over social media and now lots of beauty bloggers are grabbing their brushes and transforming themselves into beautiful sirens of the sea.
From cool-toned cosmetics and wavy, ocean-inspired hairstyles to mermaid manicures and shimmery fish scale skin, there's no wrong way to incorporate your beloved sea creature into your beauty routine.
Seriously, you won't even need to fish for compliments when you're rocking these dazzling underwater looks.
