The mami Wata is sometimes depicted as a mermaid, sometimes as a human woman. A powerful water deity or spirit reigning firmly over large parts of Africa, the Caribbean, and South America, she is reverred and feared by many. The Mami Wata usually resides in rivers or lakes, but is also known as an oceanic creature.
Mami Wata is generally considered to be friendly and benevolent but is known to distribute harsh punishment among those that disrespect her. If she wishes so the Mami Wata will take swimmers to her watery realm and it is up to her whether they will return.
The Mami Wata is revered, mysterious and a goddess in her own right. The way she displays this is through a naturally glowy skin, sunkissed and dewy and make-up on the bolder side. In order to achieve the fresh out of the river look, she takes much care to provide nourishment and detoxification to her skin. Products including cleansing charcoal, soothing rose oil, and nourishing shea butter are her number one choice.
When it comes to make-up she loves the dark and mysterious look of slightly messy cat eyes and a deep shade of red dabbed onto her lips. At night she carries the day’s heat and sunlight on her face in form of a golden highlighter.
