Mermaids of the Caribbean

My heart is pierced by Cupid, I disdain all glittering gold,
There is nothing that can console me, but my jolly sailor bold.

The mermaids were one of the best parts of the new Pirates movie so here’s a short post about their hair and make-up. First off, here’s the poster for main mermaid Syreena played by French-Spanish actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey.

As you can see, the make-up looks fairly minimal- pale lips, a hint of black eyeliner and contoured cheekbones- and hair is long, flowing wavy-ness with twisted sections at the top.
Also- going slightly off topic- I just found out that Astrid did the fashion ads for French Connection:

I had no idea!
Anyway, back to mermaids…
Here’s model Gemma Ward and first mermaid Tamara’s look:

A hint of blush and neat eyeliner only along the top lashes. Hair is pulled back and twisted at the temples- all pretty and simple.
The products used were DuWop and to learn more about creating the looks go here.
Told you it would be a quick post!

    Nice post! I really liked the mermaids–I think they were more intimidating than Blackbeard! Their makeup was really beautiful; thanks for explaining it!

    I think Astrid (Syrena) is French, which would explain the French Ad. 🙂

    I agree, Blackbeard wasn’t really a very good villain.
    And Astrid is actually French-Spanish, so we’re both right 😀
