Step 1: Fins
First step was the fins on my face! First off I made them with model magic because it's a very light clay, then I took acrylic paint to paint them and while the paint was wet i did sprinkle glitter on top. Next I took some black body paint from Mehron and covered my ears, then i grabbed spirit gum and put that in front of my ears then tapped it tell it was tacky and placed my fins on top.
Step 2: Extra Support
to make sure the fins stayed I placed some liquid latex down and put a cotton ball on top then put more liquid latex on top.
Step 3: Covering Up
So I used the purple Elmers glue stick to cover up my eyebrows I do this often, then I took some concealer from NYX and put that on the brows, over the latex, under my eyes, and on any blemishes on my face.
Step 4: More Covering
Taking my normal foundation I put that all over my face, then used a translucent powder to set all of that makeup.
Step 5: Contour
I used a teal face paint from Mehron to start the contour leading from that fin and I kept the line sharp, Then i took a dark blue eyeshadow from Urban decays electric pallet and a teal shadow from NYX to deepen up the contour. I also drug that dark blue under the chin.
Step 6: More Contour
Taking that same teal color body paint I put that on my brows and down the sides of my nose. I then took the same shadows to deepen it up.
Step 7: Scales
I made scales with that same model magic and also painted them with acrylic paint. Then i put some liquid latex and put it on the back on each scale and pressed it on the skin. I put 4 on each eyebrow then I placed more of the bigger ones by the fins and down that contour line.
Step 8: Shadowing
Taking a dark blue body paint from Mehron I outlined each scale to act as a shadow and help separate each scale.
Step 9: Lid
On my lid I took orange body paint from Mehron and I just patted it up to the teal.
Step 10: Yellow Detail
Taking yellow body paint from Mehron I dotted between the orange and teal, then I added a yellow triangle to the inner corner of my eyes.
Step 11: Yellow Shadow.
I took some yellow shadow from NYX and added that to the outer corner of my eyes and drug it up to my forehead, then I put some yellow shadow on top of the cheek contour and on top of my nose.
Step 12: Dots
I took some yellow body paint from Mehron and randomly placed dots all over the face.
Step 13: Lips
For the lips I took some orange lipsick from NYX and put it all over my lips. You may also use body paint.
Step 14: White
Using NYX liquid eyeliner in while, you can also use white body paint, I placed dots everywhere and also outlined the yellow triangle on my inner corner.
Step 15: Lips
I took that yellow body paint and added dots all around the lips, then I put a little on the center of my lips and patted it out.
Step 16: Gils
I made gils on my neck using cotton balls and latex. I made two on both sides of my neck.
Step 17: Contour
I used the same teal and blue shadows to start the contour, and i added sharp line of teal body paint.
Step 18: Gill Colors
I took an orange color body paint from Mehron and painted the gills, then I added a line of yellow to the top.
Step 19: More Dots
I added yellow and white dots all over the body.
