I’ve actually never dressed up like a Disney Princess. I have, however, dressed up as the Evil Queen before for Halloween.
Before I had kids, I used to LOVE playing with makeup, especially with eye makeup. Since then, my daily makeup routine has become short and filled with just the necessities. I wear mascara if I’m feeling extra pretty that day 😉
I’ll be honest with you, most days I am lucky if I get in a five minute shower. I’m usually wearing a breastmilk stained shirt, and my hair is in a messy ponytail/bun. I don’t feel like the fairest in the land by a long shot.
But I have been feeling particularly down about my appearance recently. My postpartum belly is saggy, my stretch marks are pretty severe, and I’ve started to lose my hair. Now I’m not complaining, because I am totally okay with the fact that my body has had to undergo a pretty severe transformation to give birth to my little lass, our princess.
But my five year anniversary is coming up, and I want to feel pretty that night. I especially want to play up my eyes. So I turned to my favorite inspiration for makeup – movies!
Well my newest inspiration came from a movie that is premiering on the Disney Channel on July 31st called “Descendents“. It’s all about the children of some of our favorite Disney villains – Maleficent, Jafar, Cruella de Vil, and the Evil Queen. The movie looks really fun, and supposedly is going to have super catchy songs in it (think back to the Disney Channel’s big hit – High School Musical! I still know the dance moves to “We’re All In This Together!”) Malificient is played my one of my favorite singer/actresses, Kristen Chenowith.
There is even going to be a hip-hop a cappella to Alan Menken’s classic song, “Be Our Guest”, from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.
Sign me up!
I’m pretty excited about this movie…can you tell?
So inspiration hit me like a ton of bricks, and I knew I decided to go out to Walmart and pick up some new makeup. I recently watched Snow White, and wanted base my eye makeup look upon the Evil Queen.
This look will be especially good for women who have blue or green eyes (like the Evil Queen’s herself!) – but could easily be accomplished with any color.
Step 6: Add a thick winged cat-eye with black eyeliner, and add a couple of coats of mascara.
Is there any other movie or TV character who you’d like to see me do an eye makeup tutorial for?
Talk soon friends,
