Winnie the Pooh and Friends-Inspired Makeup Looks

Life in the Hundred Acre Wood is idyllic and still, and transports us to a simpler time. And so in honor of Winnie the Pooh Day (creator A.A. Milne’s 132nd birthday), I thought I would channel Pooh and “think think think” of a few looks inspired by Christopher Robin’s motley crew. I had so much fun putting these together; finding my inner Piglet, Eeyore, and Pooh himself was something of an adventure, but I came up with some really fun ideas I might never have tried. And yes, I’m a huge dork. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way…

  • Get Inspired! 1 of 5

    Pooh and his crew have a wide range of personalities. In honor of January 18th, Winnie The Pooh Day, here are four looks inspired by inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Woods.

  • Piglet: Pretty in Pink 2 of 5

    Pixi's pink palette for eyes, cheeks, and lips made me feel pretty in pink ... just like the innocent, wide-eyed Piglet. I created a smokey eye using bright pink hues for this spring-y daytime look. Sweep a light shadow over your entire lid, then use a slightly darker one on your outer lid, and go one step darker still to accentuate your lid-crease. Voila! Bright smokey eyes!


    I used: 

    Pixi palette, $26.50


  • Tigger: Wild Thing 3 of 5

    As tigers, it's safe to say that Tiggers LOVE a good cat eye. For extra oomph, create a split cat eye, tutorial instructions here. Because Tiggers also love taking a walk on the wild side, sweep an orange-hued eyeshadow on the lid and into the crease of your split cat eye. 


    I used:

    Pixie Ink Liner, $16.00

    Mac Eyeshadow in Rule, $15.00

  • Eeyore: A Little Goth 4 of 5

    For a semi-goth, Eeyore-inspired look  (we all know he's a bit of a downer), I went for a gray shadow trio and used the darkest shade as a dramatic liner on my inner and outer lids. Dust your cheeks with a shimmery blush to offset your dark eyes with a dewy glow. A light pink lipstick finishes off the mod look.


     I used:

    Smashbox "Photo Op" Trio, $28

    Tarte Amazon 12 Hour Lipstick, $26

  • Pooh: Glam and Gold 5 of 5

    We can't forget Pooh himself -- ever in style in classic red and gold. I can't say enough good things about gold eye shadow, and I don't need to -- the only thing you need to know is that it camouflages tired eyes like nothing else. It also gives light eyes and dark eyes alike a killer pop. As far as lips go, finding the right red for your skin tone can be tricky, but if you're lily white like me, something with a blue undertone will keep you from looking ruddy.


    I used:

    Stila Eyeshadow Trio Gold, $28.00 

    Nars Jungle Red Lipstick, $26.00.
