Halloween Tutorial Series: Glam To Mermaid

Happy Thursday, friends! Today’s Halloween tutorial is definitely more glam than gory (0% gore here today) but it’s SO cute and easy. If you aren’t one to stomach fake blood, guts or skeletons, this is a Halloween look you can embrace. Mermaids are popular during Halloween so jump on the bandwagon with this glam look. Watch the video below and shop all the products, too! Halloween Tutorial Series: Glam To Mermaid:

This post + video are sponsored by Ulta Beauty. All opinions are mine and mine alone.

I’m a little bit obsessed with how this turned out – who knew fishnets could be so useful, amiright? LOVE. 

Remember — you don’t need a bunch of special effects makeup to create amazing Halloween looks this season. You just need an ULTA Beauty nearby 😉 Joking (but only kind of). You can use regular makeup to create so many amazing looks — fairy, mermaid, princess, Harley Quinn…the options are endless, they just take a little bit of imagination.
