I am so grateful that I have decided to start linking up with Makeup Monday! This is by far my favorite challenge so far and I can’t wait to share with you! Head on over to the hostess’ blogs and check out which Disney Princess they chose!
This week’s challenge was to recreate a celebrity or Disney Princess look. I decided that my sister Rose was the perfect candidate to play dress up with. The two of us brainstormed and decided that there was one Disney Princess in particular who would be perfect!
Rose is feisty, beautiful, strong, compassionate, spunky, and loving. She has killer long hair and hazel eyes that will melt your heart!
I used this picture as my inspiration to do Rose’s makeup. As you can see here, the makeup on Rapunzel is really very simple, with the focus on the big, wide eyes and perfect complexion. I decided to teach Rose a few of my favorite tricks to make her eyes look Disney-princess wide!
(I also have to mention that Rose’s hair sealed the deal. I styled it in a 5-strand braid and it couldn’t have been more perfect!)
Benefit The Porefessional, Jouer Moisturizing Tint, Neutrogena Skin Clearing Foundation in Nude, Kabuki brush
I started by applying Benefits Porefessional all over her face, including her eyelids. I have found that this makes skin SUPER soft and helps makeup last a long long time! And as you can imagine, Rose didn’t need a lot of foundation to start! I used a dime sized amount of foundation mixed with the Jouer moisture tint and applied with the Kabuki brush all over her face and neck.
Benefit Stay Don’t Stray, Benefit Boi-ing (Yes, I am a walking talking Benefit commercial!)
These are two of my favorite products in the world! I used boi-ing under the eyes, and Stay Don’t Stray on the nose and out into the T zone. This is less to cover blemishes than to start the contouring process.
Nars bronzer in Laguna, Nars blush in Orgasm, contouring brush, blush brush
One of the things that I like a lot about the photo we chose of Rapunzel is that her makeup isn’t super heavy and her skin looks clean and fresh. This means that Rose didn’t need any all-over bronzer at all! So I just used a swipe of bronzer under Rosie’s cheekbones, under her jawline, and on the sides of her nose. Then I added this Nars blush to the apples of her cheeks. I know the name of this blush is awkward, but it’s the perfect match to the photo of Rapunzel if you ask me!
P.S. How adorable is my sister???
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool
And now onto the fun part- the eyes!
Whoa! This looks like a lot when it is applied just by itself. But Maybelline Color Tattoo is one of my biggest secrets to achieving cartoon-character eyes that are wide and beautiful! After application of all the other shadow, a little bit of this bright white remains above the eyeliner, and I swear it adds inches to your eyes!
I applied this with my fingers, it gets creamier when it heats up and is nice and smooth to apply.
Anastasia Eye Pallet, blending brush, double-sided brush from pallet
This pallet is seriously my favorite thing in the whole world. As you can see, it gets a LOT of love. I use every single color, the eyebrow gel (that little tube on the right), and the two sided brush. I use it all every day.
For Rose, I used two brown colors. The matte brown on the bottom right I used to fill in her lids and I blended it with Too Cool out into a little V shape on the side of her eyes. In order to make her eyes look larger, I just pretended that they were! By applying eyeshadow that is more wide than your eyes, it creates the illusion that your eyes go out that far!
Afterwards, I applied the dark sparkly color on the bottom left into the crease. This defined her eyes even more.
Maybelline eyeliner in Black, Lash Stilleto, The Falsies
Yay! Look at those Disney princess eyes!
I applied a very thin layer of eye liner on the top lid only. Then I applied Lash Stiletto to both eyes.
Another secret to big eyes in The Falsies! On Rose, I used it only on the outside corners of her eyes, making those lashes look long and full, finishing the look of giant Rapunzel eyes!
Dress up time!
Look at my beautiful sister!
By the way, is it just me, or is she finally taller than me???
Rose doesn’t look like Rapunzel… Rapunzel looks like Rose :).
