Disney Inspired Makeup: Ariel, The Little Mermaid

You might have seen me mention that I cosplay and generally love costume makeup, but I haven’t yet shared any of my costumes with you lovely people!


I promise I will do more of that but I wanted to do a series based on inspired, everyday makeup looks starting with Disney characters!

The Little Mermaid is my all-time favourite Disney film so it felt right to start with Ariel!


I did my brows pretty much as I usually would, just bolder as I wanted a really strong look.

  • NYX Eyebrow Gel in brunette to fill in the tail and shape
  • Barry M It’s a Brow Thing in Medium to fill in the sparse areas
  • Collection Clear Mascara to set

Eyes: I primed my eyes first and then used two palettes to create the vibrant purple and green look I wanted.

  • La Roc Beginner’s Collection 120 Palette– I filled in my entire lid with a soft violet shade and lined the crease with a darker purple-blue colour.
  • BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes 2– taking a damp blending brush and the vibrant purple in the centre of my lid
  • Essence Pencil Liner in Say Hi Light– a nude liner to brighten my eyes on my waterline
  • Bourjois Contour Clubbing Liner in Loving Green– just below my lash line and blended out with a little of the bright green foil
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational– to finish the eyes

Face: I didn’t go too out of my comfort zone for face makeup as I still want it be wearable, just with good coverage and added glow!

  • L’Oreal Lumi Maqnique Primer– I primed first for a glowy base
  • L’Oreal True Match Foundation– mixed the foundations together
  • L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation– my costume foundation of choice as it’s so thick and high coverage
  • Soap & Glory Hocus Focus– mixed in with the foundation
  • L’Oreal True Match Concealer– used to clean up brows and eyes and dabbed under my eye area
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder– to set my makeup in place
  • Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette– I wet my brush for an added kick with the lilac shade from this palette
  • L’Oreal True Match Blush in Peach– to finish the face makeup

Lips: kept it simple with a glossy pink shade with the Bourjios Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Red Sunshine

The finished look! It’s probably not something I’d wear every day but I like how it turned out. The eye makeup is actually a lot like how I used to do my makeup as a teenager!
