Thanks to everyone who's visited our website in its first week of life! Our Facebook and Twitter pages have had a surge of interest as well - so if you haven't already, head over and check them out for more news, pictures, and bad ocean-based puns.
It's been a busy week for all our mermaids; we recently held a mermaid summit which focused on pooling our collective knowledge of the best make-up. Mermaid Melusine's plum-coloured mascara was a big hit; it really intensifies your natural eye colour, although sadly the fact it's not waterproof means we can only use it for land-based performances.
We also love this amazing YouTube video by make-up artist Nic Haste of PixieWoo.com. If you want to know how to achieve the look of iconic film star Marlene Dietrich, we highly recommend it. Our attempts to replicate her look weren't quite as effortlessly flawless as Nic's - but they do say that practice makes perfect.
World Water Day
In other mermaidy news, take a look at these beautiful underwater photographs of celebrities including Keira Knightley, Lily Cole and Kelly Brook (in a mermaid tail!) taken for charity fresh20, in order to raise awareness of the global water crisis. World Water Day is the 22nd March and as you can imagine, it's a cause close to our hearts.
