A wonderful makeup artist named Jared Milian came to the radio station to transform a couple of 101.5 employees into mermaids. The Fourth Annual Promenade of Mermaids is June 30th and it put us all in a mermaid kind of mood. The following video is basically a tutorial in the art of mermaid construction, from a makeup point of view. From the foundation to the finishing touches, the transformation was pretty cool. First up: Joe Votruba.

Through the magic of makeup, Joe Votruba became Joe Vo-Tuna. Jared explains how he gave depth to Joe’s makeup, and some of his hints are applicable to everyday makeup application, not just mermaid work. I hope you enjoy watching the video as much as I enjoyed watching it live.
