Enhance Eyelashes

Curl lashes then coat them with mascara (Image 1). Choose a winged pair of false lashes where the edges get gradually longer; attach them with eyelash glue (Image 2). Use mascara to blend eyelashes with false lashes (Image 3). Add a second pair of lashes on the bottom; don't be afraid to use something dramatic (Image 4). Place stick-on pearls over the scales around eyes (Image 5).

Add Lip Color

Apply blue lipstick to lips (Image 1). Blot a dab of silver/white mineral eye shadow in the center of your lips for shimmer (Image 2).

Finish the Look

Add stick-on pearls to lips, shoulders, arms and chest (Images 1 and 2). Create soft waves in your hair with a curling iron, or go all out with a long, wavy costume wig (Image 3). Pick a shade that complements the colors of your scales and embellish the wig with strings of faux pearls and shells (Image 4).
