For makeup artist Sarah Chambers, it was her two and a half year old daughter that motivated her to start creating the stunning Disney looks. “She is absolutely in love with Little Mermaid so I decided to do a few fun collections/looks she could have fun watching me create,” says Sarah.
Canadian artist Katie Alves specializes in creating scenes on eyelids. Several have been inspired by Disney movies. Other talented makeup artists get inspired by the color theme and then create their looks. Alaina Carrel even shares step by step tutorials and has a blog devoted to Disney inspired makeup.
To create such elaborate looks, be ready to devote a good chunk of time. For Sarah Chambers, who has over 15,000 fans on Facebook, each makeup session takes from 45 to 60 minutes.
3 things you need to create Disney inspired makeup looks
Aside from talent, time and creativity, here are a few essentials that can help you do Disney-inspired makeup like a pro:
- Fake eyelashes: essential for Minnie Mouse and princess looks.
- Makeup in varied colors: Sarah Chambers uses NYX, Mac, Sugarpill, Lime Crime Makeup, Saucebox cosmetics, and Eyekandy cosmetics. I have tried Makeup Forever palettes and think they are the best for face painting in general.
- Different brushes: a good set of makeup brushes are essential always, but when creating very detailed looks, make sure the bristles are clean, soft and not coming loose. Synthetic brushes are best for cream-based makeup.
