If you’re a girl who’s not that keen on completely going to the “dark side,” there is a way you can remain your feminine self while still keeping in line with the scary, edgy theme of Halloween. A pretty-in-pink, sparking clown look both have elements of the feminine and the scary.

This look is not so much Ariel in The Little Mermaid but more like the traditional mermaids of the original legends, which portrayed mermaids to be sometimes benevolent but oftentimes malevolent beings who were able to cause storms and shipwrecks. It was often said that if you got on the bad side of these creatures, it would be the end for you. You can recreate this look for the party by simulating scales on your face and neck with the help of iridescent powder. Add fishnet tights, pointy false teeth, and fancy gems and you’ll be able to complete this beautiful but terrifying ghoulish makeup look.
