To achieve this #TrulyOutrageous teal look for Halloween, Austin-based makeup artist Texas Dela Rosa went with bold colors and simple application techniques to keep Aja Leith’s 80s inspired ‘punk rock mermaid’ look easy to recreate at home.
Step 1: Use your foundation of choice, and lightly apply it all over your face. Texas used a combo of MAC NW18 and NW20 Pro Long Wear to even out Melody’s skin. Touch up any areas that need extra coverage with your favorite concealer. Apply a light powder to set.
Step 2: Apply an eye primer to prevent creasing, and let it set for a few minutes.We like Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.
Step 3: Layer on the sparkle! Now’s a good time to start applying your ‘Jem And The Holograms’ Flash Tattoos to that pretty face of yours. Carefully cut out the designs you want to wear from the sheet, and remove the clear liner. Place the tattoo onto your skin, and gently press it onto your skin with a wet washcloth. Remove the paper once it is fully soaked, and pat the tattoo with the wet washcloth. To allow the tattoo to set into your skin, do not to move or stretch the areas where the tattoo was applied for about 20 minutes.
Step 4: With an eyeshadow brush, Texas applied MAC Aquadisiac A62 light teal eyeshadow over the lid, focusing the color directly above the lash line. Towards the outer corner of the eye, he used a turquoise sparkle pigment. PS Texas found this rad Urban Decay ‘Electric’ palette that would be a perfect one stop shop to achieve all the eyeshadow looks for your girl band…rock on!
Step 5: Texas used Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Deep End to achieve Melodys’ colorful cat eye look. Apply from the inside of the eye, extending outwards to get the perfect flick. Apply a bright blue liner to the lower waterline, like Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Liner in 7L.
Step 6: Use a good defining mascara to finish the look. Texas applied several coats of MAC Zoom Lash to Melody’s lashes.
Step 7: Get those brows on fleek! Texas filled in Melody’s brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencil in Medium Brown to achieve that full, groomed 80s eyebrow look.
Step 8: Swirl some blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Texas used Nars blush in Orgasm to bring a peachy glow to Melody’s face.
Step 9: Texas added a few highlights and contours with the Nars Hungry Hearts palette. He applied the lighter color under Melody’s cheeks and eyes, and applied the darker color to blend the blush together.
Step 10: Add a pop to your lips with MAC Patent Polish in Kittenish, with a little Sephora lip gloss in #28 layered on top.
Step 11: For the final touch, apply the Swarovski crystals around the face to add some rockstar-worthy sparkle.
To add a two toned look to Melody’s hair, we did a deep side part and sprayed half her hair teal with a spray hair chalk from Sally Beauty Supply. Turned out pretty cool, if you ask us!
