15 Mermaid Inspired Beauty Products That Will Help You Get In Touch With Your Inner Ariel

Although the fascination with mermaids has always kind of been a thing, I'm loving that mermaids are having a total fashion and beauty moment. Finally, we've stopped simply obsessing over them and have actually taken steps towards becoming them, whether through our hair or our manicures. And really, the best way to emulate our counterparts of the sea is through mermaid-inspired makeup. This way, everything from a simple allusion to a full-blown makeover is accessible. Whether you prefer just a pop of teal eyeliner, or the whole, colorful and shiny shebang, here are 15 products that will take your summer beauty game up a notch, and really help you make a splash.
