Disney Series: Belle!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

So when I asked which Disney Princess you’d like to see, Ariel & Belle won. As I did an Ariel inspired look last time, it’s time for Belles inspired look 🙂

If you’d like to know how to create this Belle inspired look then keep reading…

Base

base

As always I started off with a freshly cleansed face. To prime my skin I used MACs Prep & Prime (review will be up soon!!). I then went on to apply my Revlon Colourstay Foundation with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. To conceal my under eye circles I used a small amount of Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, I tapped this into the skin using my ring finger. This is the most delicate finger & the warmth from your finger helps the product melt into the skin better 🙂

Eyes

eyesFor the eyes I wanted to keep the look simple so I decided to just use this quad from Avon, it’s the True Colour Mocha Latte Quad! I used the light pink shade all over the lid, I then took the light brown shade in the crease as a transition shade. To deepen the outer corners I sketched in a  winged sort of look to the outer corner & blended inwards but not past the half way point on my lid. To make this look even smokier, I used the metallic brown shade in between the pink & dark brown colours, this is so the colours transition nicely from light to dark. As this is how you achieve a great smokey eye!!

To emphasise the lashline I used my Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl in Black along the upper & lower lashline & the tightline. I drew a very thin line on the top & smudged it out slightly to add to the smokey effect! I then did the same to the lower lashline & carried the liner up towards the brow to create a cat-eye effect to the look. To open the eyes I applied my Rimmel Kohl in White to the lower waterline.

This wouldn’t be a flirtatious Belle look without fluttery lashes, so to top the eye makeup off I used Benefits They’re Real Mascara!

Brows, cheeks & lips

browcheeklipBrows

To start off with I combed through my brows with the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara (medium deep), this gives quite a bit of definition so you could stop here. But to ensure my brows where nice & precise I went in with my brown brow pencil to fill in any sparse areas!

Cheeks

For the cheeks I kept it very simple, Belle always looks blushed in the films but not overly pink. So I went with a peach blush, the one I used was Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba 🙂 I placed this on the apples of my cheeks (to find where this is, smile & it’s the high bit you get under your eyes!) & swept the colour back. I find this application method to be the most flattering.

Lips

To Complete the look I opted for a simple lip. I just decided to line my lips with my ELF Long Wear Lip Liner in Mauve Luxe!

Hair

To make this look more polished I put my hair into a bun. I then added in a small rose hair grip into the back of my hair as this look wouldn’t be complete without a rose! I also pulled out some short strands of hair around my face to frame my face a bit!

Here is the completed look. I hope you all enjoyed my Belle inspired makeup look! This is such a wearable look, either day or night, I think it’s timeless (very fitting for the Disney story!). Let me know what you think 🙂

Thank you for reading beauties, have a fabulous day! ☼

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Disney Series: Aurora!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

I’m aware I didn’t get my Disney post up last week, but I totally forgot & got so tied up in other things!

Don’t fret though, I’m going to be continuing this Disney Series. You all seemed to love my Maleficent post (click here to see how I achieved the look of Maleficent!) so I decided I’d definitely carry on the series!

Today I have for you an Aurora, Sleeping Beauty, inspired makeup look. I’m so excited for this, she’s my favourite Princess ❤

Anyway, on with the look beauties…base

As usual I started with a freshly cleansed face (first image), I used my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. I then toned & moisturised my skin with Simple (click here  for morning skincare routine).

1. I then went on to prime my face with the Gosh Velvet Touch Primer (click here  for review).

2. To even out my complexion I decided on a BB cream, this is the Rimmel Matte BB Cream – let me know if you want a review – my skin was quite good on this day so I didn’t need a high coverage foundation! I used the Real Techniques Buffing Brush to buff/stipple this into the skin.

3. To conceal any redness/blemishes I went in with my beloved Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in #1 fair. Needless to say, I love this stuff!!

4. To counteract my dark circles I went in with the Maybelline Eye Concealer. This is brilliant for highlighting your under-eyes, cheek bones & cupids bow (usually the places I like to use it!)

5. To set the base in place I used my good old Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent!

6. As this is a look for Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), I just had to use blush, so I used my fave blush; Sleek’s Shimmer Blush in Rose Gold. It gives such a subtle amount of colour (which is buildable) & the most beautiful sheen to the skin.

eyes

1. For the eyes I started off by applying the Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold all over the lid, I usually just apply these with my fingers as that’s the best way I’ve found to apply them to get the best pigmentation.

2. I then applied the Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in Eternal Gold to the inner corners to brighten them up & to add a different touch to the look. Which I think makes it look extra Princess-y.

3. To blend the look together I blended the pink shade from my Maybelline Diamond Glow Coral Drama Quad into the crease with my Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. This extra step adds more definition & dimension to the eye too!

4. To make the lashes look thicker & flirtier I created a thin line of liner on my lash line using the lovely L’Oreal Super Liner (click here for review)

5. To complete the eyes, I applied lashings of the Maybelline One By One Mascara! Seriously, how much difference does that make? LOVE IT!!brows.lips

1. Tame those brows girl! I started off by combing through mine with a spoolie.

2. I then decided to change things up a bit & use my brow pencil in light brown. I don’t know what make it is, it’s rubbed off as I’ve had it for ages, oops!

3. This wouldn’t be an Aurora makeup look without a bold pink lippy! I used Maybelline’s Colour Sensational Lipstick in 910 – Shocking Coral. Can I just say beauties, I’ve fallen in loveeeewith this colour again, it. is. gorgeous!!!

So here’s the finished look…endlook

I hope you liked my Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) inspired makeup look, I also braided the front of my hair to give it a more Princess-y feel.

OH YES! Before I forget, I have an outfit for this look too…

dress

I remembered I bought this dress a few months back for my holiday & thought it’d be perfect for this Aurora inspired look!

I really like how this look turned out. Let me know what you think below & as ever, thank you all for your time! 🙂

*sidenote* I know there’s A LOT of Maybelline products used in this look, but that was a total coincidence! This is in no way sponsored by them, all opinions are my own!

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
