Mermaid Beauty Products For Summer Beauty Looks
Mermaid Beauty is in for Summer
Happy Summer! While it’s not officially summer yet we are feeling it here in the Midwest. Child I had to turn my air on, so needless to say we are feeling the summer vibes around here and I’m shifting my beauty routine around due to the weather. Since summer is approaching rather quickly, I thought we should have a serious discussion about mermaid makeup and other beauty products to keep you on trend this summer. Now I know there are some of you in the back that have had it up to HERE with the whole Mermaid/Unicorn trend. I hear you, but it’s summer! It’s time for fun, and there is no arguing that these trends are anything less than fun… And IMO that is what makeup is all about. Play in it… Have a ball. 🙂
We’ve talked about trends before and how expensive following them can be. You don’t have to break the bank in an effort to stay on trend, in fact sometimes it’s better to just grab 1 or 2 products in a collection. THink Mermaid waves in your hair and a colorful eye paired with a nude lip you already have… or maybe you want a mermaid glow without all the loud colors… maybe just a bold lip with your fave nude palette. The options are pretty endless.
So in honor of Ariel and all her sisters I want to give you guys some ideas of products you can use to transform your look for everyday glam to mermaid goddess. The thing about this trend is you can take it as far as you’re comfortable with… full on glam mermaid vibes or just a touch of color. It’s really up to you.

Mermaid Beauty Products – Hair, makeup, bath & body
Briteplex Mermaid Masque
Brite is known for their intense moisturizing masques for color treated hair. We’ve talked about the Unicorn Masque in our Magical AF Unicorn post, the mermaid masque features a mermaid scale design on the packaging and is designed for bleach and color treated hair. For best results use this Masque 1 or twice a week, can also be worn overnight for more deeply penetrating treatment. Ulta Beauty 2 for $18
Part of Too Faced’s Life’s a Festival Collection the La Crème Mystical Effects Lipstick in the shade Mermaid Tears is a magical combination of mermaid tail green with a deep lilac shift. It’s the perfect dramatic bold lip for summer parties and concerts… Or Instagram… or running to the drug store if your feeling frisky. 🙂 Sephora $22
At $299 this is the most expensive item on this or any of list I’ve created… but hear me out. This isn’t a trendy type product, it’s an investment. The 7 wands are interchangeable and can be used to create a variety of looks from soft waves to more defined ringlets. The rose gold 7 in 1 curling wand is a great addition to your styling tool collection and quite honestly can replace several products you probably already own, and with 180 5 star reviews you can’t go wrong. Foxy Bae $299
While the Be a Mermaid & Make Waves Palette can’t stay off of many bloggers anti-haul list I’m going to advocate for it. I love t he seashell design and wearability of this palette. The shades range from everyday nudes to more dramatic mermaid worthy shades making it the perfect day to evening palette. The palette retails for $42 which is roughly $3 per pan. It’s not the worst pricing in the world when it comes to palettes but not super cheap either… do you NEED it? Probably not but if you want to treat yourself… Go for it! Sephora $42
Tarte Mermaid Waves Salt Spray
There’s a lot of Tarte here I know… But I thought I’d pick out the must have from the collection instead of spending $159 on entire collection (honestly that is still a great deal) The Mermaid Waves salt spray is a vegan hair-texturizing spray loaded with sea salt for easy, windswept, mermaid waves. Spray evenly through hair, adds some braids to intensify the effect, allow to dry and unravel for just got back from the beach waves, suitable for all hair types. I’ve been considering reviewing this to see how it would react to natural hair… so let me know if you guys want to see that. Sephora $22
Milk Makeup has been killing it lately. We’ve talked about the Kush Mascara in a previous post, today it’s all about the eye pigments, or more accurately the shade mermaid. It seems most brands idea of mermaid is a teal or turquoise shade with a lot of shimmer. I do sometimes wonder… if mermaids were real wouldn’t they come in different colors… But ok… I’ll bite. Milk’s eye pigments are crease free and have a high color pay-off. use a brush or just your finger for shimmery eyes all day/night. Milk Makeup, $24
INC.redible brings us the perfect peachy gloss for summer in the shade – Mermaid Tantrums. FINALLY! A Mermaid color that isn’t green! The gloss does however have a green shift so a light coat is probably best for the coppery peach shade to shine through. Sephora, $13
This NEW trio will be available at Sephora on May 21st! The Summer Nights collection has 3 shades (as Pictured) Snakeskin,holographic burgundy with green shift, Mermaid Thighs ,holographic blue with purple shift, and Vacray, a holographic gold with pink shift. Sephora $32
This coconut water infused setting spray is perfect for setting your make or refreshing it through out the day. Perfectly Posh, $21
Butter London Glazen Nail Lacquer ~ Mermaid
Butter London is my hands down fave brand for nail polish. This summer why not try out the new shade Mermaid, a fun blue with sage glitter. This is a great way to sneak in some mermaid fun without being so in your face about. (perfect for the 9-5).Ulta, $10
Primer is a must if you want you a smooth makeup application that lasts all day. Try the PhotoFocus Dewy Face Primer from Wet n’ Wild for glow from within look. 🙂 Ulta, $4.99
These highlighters are perfect! Ok so these are maybe not perfect for your day job, but the are perfect for adding a touch of mermaid/unicorn for a great night look. Available in 2 shades, Mermaid Armour, a soft pink highlight and Electric Invasion a fun lavender blue ( maybe a good dupe for Too Faced Unicorn Tears Highlight). Ulta $8.99
When I think of mermaids I think of … well of course the tail… but also I think of glistening skin. The kind of skin that has a natural glow with just a hint of shimmer. The folks over at Sol de Janeiro have perfected the art of glowy skin with their glow oils. These skin softening oils are the perfect way to amp up your summer beauty looks. Available in two shades, Copacabana Brinze and Ipanema Sunset. Sephora $35
Looking for the perfect way to try out a few streaks of color without committing to a whole bottle of Lime Crime’s Unicorn Hair Color? Now you can get a mini try me kit at Ulta! For just $10 you can add just a touch of mermaid color to your hair. Ulta $10
Pixi Beauty is my favorite drug store skin care brand. Pixi’s Glow Mist is a multipurpose product that gives you a glow from within sort of look without spending a ton of cash. Glow Mist hydrates your skin with 13 natural oils and aloe vera, protects and sets makeup, and can be used on hair for a nice but never oily sheen. Simply shake to mix and spray. Pixi Beauty, $15
If you want to add some drama to your hair but can’t commit to actually dyeing it try the Instatint Temporary Color Shimmer Spray from Joico. This product gives a blast of color to your tresses and washes out in just one shampoo… so be bold on the weekend and back to business on Monday. Beauty Brands, $9.99
Now is the time to get your skin ready for summer mermaid vibes. Try the gradual tanning cream from Perfectly Posh. No streaks or any of that other unpleasantness. Just apply as you would your daily lotion. After a few uses you should see a subtle tan like glow. Perfectly Posh, $19
Snarky Bars are the best exfoliating bath bars I’ve ever tried. Period! This sea-inspired Snarky™ transforms your driest skin while hydrating and soothing with marine nutrients like algae and nori, a type of seaweed, plus softening shea butter, scented with citrus, melon, coconut, and vanilla. Perfectly Posh $16
A bold lip is a great way to show off mermaid vibes without committing to a bunch of other products. We are crushing on Winky Lux Lip Velour Matte Lipstick in the shade mermaid. The dark teal color is screaming my name! You just can’t go wrong with a matte lip. Winky Lux $14
