Nowadays, Tinker Bell is both sweet and sassy. But the early Tinker Bell wasn’t so sweet; in fact, she was a jealous little thing! I’ve taken a little inspiration from both the original Tink and some of the newer interpretations for this DIY costume, as well as hair and makeup. If you’ve already got blonde hair with bangs, then this will be a cinch! I don’t have bangs, so I had to make it look like I do AND create the look of a pixie cut in front. Click through the tutorial below to see how I did it, as well as a full makeup tutorial!

Flip through the images to see how I created this fun and sassy Tinker Bell hair and makeup and easy DIY Costume!
Let’s Start with Makeup! 2 of 24
Tinker Bell, as with many of the Disney Princesses, has mostly natural-looking "pretty" makeup. I used neutrals and pinks to create the look and essentials like black eyeliner, faux lashes, berry lips, and a hint of glitter shadows. Begin with your regular foundation/powder application...

Tink's most descriptive trait is her HIGH ARCHED brows. I used a blonde pencil to arch mine even more than they already are and an eyebrow gel to set them in place.

Using neutrals to create depth in my lids with shadow, I later added more pink to the middle of my lids and apples of my cheeks. Tink also has a great winged eye because she's mischievous! Use your favorite eye liner pencil or liquid to create yours or use a temporary tattoo eye liner!

Add your favorite false eyelashes ... the bigger the better for costumes! Don't forget to curl your real eyelashes first.

Go back over your eyeliner to make it more dramatic. Hide your lash line by adding a liquid liner on top.

And apply it heavily to your lids, especially at your brown line and into your eyebrows. You can add it to your cheeks as well!

If you DON'T HAVE BANGS, separate out a small section from the front/sides of your pony and clip them to the side.

With your sock bun or doughnut, slip it through the tip of the remaining ponytail hair. And like any sock bun, fold your hair over the top of it and begin rolling it down towards your head.

Now, this is the most challenging part if your hair is as long as mine is. I was aiming at creating the look of bangs AND the look of a pixie cut all in one. To shorten sections so they wouldn't hang over my face too long, I swooped them over to one side, pinned them down, then swooped the remaining back until I covered all the front of my head and forehead. I didn't mind the longer hairs in the front; though it did have a bit of a '90s feel, it resembled both a pixie and faux bangs, so it worked!

And since Tink doesn't really have a clean line between where her bangs begin and bun ends, all the added hair on top works for the new and the old interpretations of her character. Now, SPRAY IT TO STAY!
