Her favorite mermaidcore look that she created for a client was a mix of Euphoria glam and aquatic inspiration. “There are so many ways to draw inspiration to create a mermaidcore look,” says Braha. “My take would be open, fluffy brows, a wash of lavenders or sheer aqua blue across the lids, or a pop of color in the inner corner of the eyes. Glossy, fresh skin and lips complement this look well, too.” While mermaidcore may appear overwhelming to create at home, there are a few go-to products Braha suggests using Makeup by Mario’s Master Crystal Reflector in Quartz, Gucci’s Luminous Face and Lip Gloss, and Natasha Denona’s Mini Pastel Eyeshadow Palette.
“Quartz can be used on lids over pastel shadows or used alone on lids or in inner corners. Use Gucci’s face balm under makeup on cheekbones for a wearable dewy effect,” Braha begins. “Natasha Denona’s mini pastel palette has the perfect mermaid vibe and can be worn individually or paired together for dimension and depth on eyes.” She also proposes adding extra details like delicate jewels, stones, or pearls sporadically near the eyes for an ultra-chic approach to the trend.
