The ocean is something that has always fascinated sailors. It is so vast and full of many mysterious creatures. In this makeup I wanted to represent the depth of the ocean and the mysterious beauty of the creatures it contains.
With a wide brush, apply a layer of blue paint evenly on the neck, on the upper part of your chest, and on your jaw up to the height of the chin. I used a metallic blue to get a brighter effect.
This step is up to make the texture of the ocean more realistic. With a brush, apply a very light blue in order to create almost vertical bands. This is to represent the light that filters through the surface. In the lower part, with a thin brush, create some curved lines very freely, which represent the reflection of light on the seabed. With a thin brush and white color, paint the sea foam on the chin and jaw.
Draw a blue waterfall which originates in the corner of your left eye and ends up in the sea, almost as if it were a tear. Remember to lighten it with white paint, for a more realistic effect.
Paint on your chest some tiny black fishes, some white bubbles and a whale, with a thin brush. Remember that the lower body part of a humpback whale has a lighter color. For this reason, use a gray paint for that part. Draw a black sailing ship on your cheek, as if it were sailing in the sea. Color the sails gray.
Complete your look with blue eyelashes and your makeup is complete!
