Friday Face Off is the weekly makeup challenge at GLAMOUR HQ where beauty editors, beauty enthusiasts and some very special guests recreate a makeup look in only 5 minutes.

This week, our Beauty Editor, Lottie Winter, is going head-to-head with celebrity makeup artist, Naoko Scintu.

The inspiration for this week’s look is makeup extraordinaire, Vitoria Lyn’s blue and pink themed festival mermaid. It’s a bold, striking look with intricate scale, detailing but can our experts pull it off?

Think Ariel, but more glam.

Stage One

Naoko starts off with the bright blue eyeshadow as a base and adding those much needed face gems to the look, while Lottie starts the creation of the scale-effect with yes, a pair of fishnet tights. Going in with a light green eyeshadow, Lottie applies a thick layer.

Stage Two

Lottie races ahead, applying a fake eyelash with great difficulty. It turns out having fake eyelashes that are too big for your eyes doesn’t make for easy application. Shortly after, Lottie puts on a bright pink lip gloss for that pop of colour. Naoko falls behind applying the fake eyelashes, but both soon-to-be mermaids are looking very similar.

Stage Three

Finishing off with the face gems, Lottie finalises the look whilst Naoko applies the last stroke of blush and highlight. For five minutes, the pro’s have outdone themselves.

Take a look at the #fridayfaceoff series on GLAMOUR's Youtube channel and have your say on who's recreation you prefer, or better yet, share your own recreations of the blue festival mermaid look.
