Further to my obsession with all things mermaid, I paint portraits of people as mermaids. Me as a mermaid, you as a mermaid, my friends, belly dancers, and famous people I like as a mermaid. I know, awesome!

But cooler still is the fact that a friend of mine used her badass make-up artist skills to create a make-up tutorial inspired by my portrait of her! Squee!

How great is that?! I love copper eyes.

(Amanda does some really fun tutorials: my favourite is Marie Antoinette Hair !)
