Queen Elsa Inspired Eye Make-Up Tutorial

Hello!

This Disney Tuesday I thought that I would do something a little bit different to the posts that I have done previously. You all know how much I love Frozen and that I absolutely adore Queen Elsa. I think that she is inspirational, kind-hearted and very very pretty! She is very well known for her stunning looks and sense of fashion.


Thinking of this, I decided to try out a make-up look inspired by Elsa. Now, I am not the best at make-up, but I tried very hard to create a cute eye make-up look which represented Elsa and her beauty. I decided that in the end I quite liked the look, so I thought that I would share it with you today in a tutorial. I apologise for any blurry pictures or bad lighting.

For this look I used two different eyeshadow brushes. The first that I used was my brush from The Body Shop. It is a really nice shape for applying eyeshadow and it is really soft! The second brush I used for blending in the colours. This brush is from Boots. It was super cheap and excellent for blending.




The first product that I used to create this look was my Avon Color Trend eyeshadow pencil. This one is in the colour Purple Lapis. Before doing this tutorial I hadn't actually used this eyeshadow pencil before, as I was looking for the right colours to match it with. I thought that this purple colour suited the look as, in the film, Elsa wears a shimmery purple on her eyes.



I applied this all over my lid, focusing on getting that pretty shimmery purple colours all over the lid. Once you have done that it should look something like this:

(ignore the weird little eyelash!)

Next I took a colour from a pallet which a friend bought me for Christmas a few years ago. Unfortunately, I do not know the name of it or where they got it from - because it doesn't have a label on it - but the colours that I use are very basic and should be very easy to find from other brands. The pallet consists of multiple eyeshadows, all in different shades. There are some pink colours, natural colours or some more cold colours such as blues and silvers. As you can see there are two blushers, both a pink colour, but one is paler than the other. It also comes with four little sponge eyeshadow applicators and one small brush to apply the blusher with. 



The first colour that I used from this pallet was one of the natural colours. I would describe it as a bronze/tan colour with a shimmer. I applied this to my crease and then blended it in with my fluffy brush from Boots.




Next, I took a blue/silver colour and applied this underneath my eye, below my lashline. I chose this colour to go under my eye as I think with it being such a cold colour it represents Elsa's ice powers.




The last colour that I used was very light. It was very pale and had a slight shimmer to it. I applied this colour in the corner of my eye and on the brow bone as a highlight. Additionally, I dusted it onto my waterline in order to make my eyes appear bigger and cartoon-like. After this, I also applied my mascara. I have told you multiple times before that my favourite mascara is my Rimmel London Extra Super Lash Mascara. This product has appeared in both my June Favourites and What's In My Make-Up Bag.






And that is it! This look is super easy and so pretty. I think that this look is also perfect for summer as it uses bright colours. I hope that you have enjoyed this post as it is slightly different to my regular Disney posts. Let me know if you liked it and would like me to do more posts like it.
