The Little Mermaid’s King Triton

A few years back I did a modern Ursula Halloween makeup that a lot of you seemed to have enjoyed. So this time around, I decided to complete the Disney rivalry with a King Triton look! Although Queen Athena was King Triton’s wife, I thought it would be fun to switch things up and do a mermaid version of King Triton. I hope you enjoy this one!

I had to washout my eyebrows and replace them with a silver-gray tint instead.Then I took a light champaign colour to my overall lids, and blended.

(sorry for the blur!)

I lined and extended my lower lash line with a frosty light sky blue. Then lined my waterline with a nude eyeliner pencil. I decided to go back with the light blue shadow and line in my crease as well.

Applied false lashes.

I was happy knowing that King Triton is already tanned, so this look went well with my skin (hehe). I did though add extra bronze to my temples, hallow of my cheeks, and I extended it down a bit for a “stronger looking” bone structure. Can you see the difference in comparison to each cheek?

Then highlighted the apples of my cheeks, the arches of my brows, and down the bridge of my nose. Then finished off the makeup with 2 lip colours (a soft pink on the bottom, and nude brown on top).

Finishing touches…
Popped in blue circle contacts and put on a white wig.

Gotta put on the classic Disney smile!

Makeup Used:
e.l.f. Eyebrow Treat & Tame in Medium
Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Palette in Glory (limited edition)
Milani Baked Bronzer in Golden
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof eyeliner pencil in Nude
MAC eyeshadow in Sea & Sky
NYX Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie

The Outfit:
Crown: I cut out a crown shape similar to King Triton’s using gold paper from the craft store and wrapped it around a gold headband
Wig: Purchased from Ebay – [similar] (did you notice it’s the same wig I used for the Ursula Halloween look??)
Trident: Purchased from a Halloween shop
Top: Victoria’s Secret (Triangle Swim Bikini top). Yes, King Triton doesn’t wear anything on top, and for many reasons I decided it’s best to cover up (haha)
Blue Circle Lenses: From Pinky Paradise [here]

For the most part, as you know, I’m all about budgeting and DIY Halloween costumes. Why spend a lot on a costume that will only be worn for a short time? If you look carefully, you can find usable pieces in your closet. As for the pieces you may not have, either you can craft them together (ex. The crown. I reused the headband in another Halloween tutorial: Lum Invader) or if you really must, then go ahead and purchase them. At least you saved a lot more on the actual costume.

Hope you found a little inspiration from this look!
