Disney's Frozen Elsa Inspired Makeup Tutorial And Nail Polish Picks

First and foremost before I get started I want to wish a happy birthday to Walt Disney, without his original creation I wouldn't be doing this tutorial today! He is one of my huge inspirations, so much joy has been brought to this world because of him. So, Happy Birthday Walt!

Second, if you haven't seen the movie Frozen...go. NOW. I'm not kidding. Stop what you're doing right this second, stop reading this post even and go see it! I'm not posting any spoilers but this movie was incredible and so funny. I need to go see it again actually because I don't think I can hold out until it comes out on blu-ray. As soon as I got home from seeing it I just had to download the soundtrack, the music and songs to this movie are amazing. I've been listening non-stop which says a lot because it's Christmas time and I'm obsessed with Christmas music and I'm not even listening to Christmas music on the radio 24/7 like I do every year. So go see it!

Today's makeup tutorial and nail polish is inspired by Elsa, Queen of Arendelle. Elsa possesses magical powers that allow her to make snow, ice, and all that cold weather goodness. She is just GORGEOUS and is definitely my favorite character in this movie. Unlike most Disney female characters, you can tell that she is actually wearing some makeup on her eyes. I wanted to recreate her look and share it with you all today.

The products I'm using are:
-NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Lavender
-MAC Eyeshadow in Beautiful Iris
-MAC Eyeshadow in Creme De Violet
-MAC Eyeshadow in Satellite Dreams
-MAC EyeShadow in White Frost
-MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
-MAC Eye Kohl in Fascinating
-Benefit "They're Real" Mascara
-MAC Mineralize Blush in Gleeful
-MAC lipstick in Plumful
-Sigma E55 Brush
-Sigma E25 Brush
-Sigma E30 Brush
-A Thin Angled Brush(or you can use a Sigma E20)
-Sigma E05 Brush
-MAC 187 Brush(or you can use a Sigma F50)

Let's get started!

Apply NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in lavender all over the lid, blending it out toward the crease with your finger. Also apply some in the inner corner/tear duct area.

Dip a Sigma E55 eye shading brush, back and forth between MAC Beautiful Iris and Creme De Violet eyeshadows, packing that mixed color on to the lid.

Using a Sigma E25 blending brush, use MAC Satellite Dreams eyeshadow and blend that well in the crease using windshield wiper motions.

Take a thin angled brush and MAC Satellite Dreams again and apply that to the lower lash line.

Now using a Sigma E30 pencil brush, apply MAC White Frost eyeshadow just below the brow and in the inner corner/tear duct area.

Eyeshadow is done! Next line the upper lash line with MAC Blacktrack fluidline using a Sigma E05 liner brush. Also line the waterline with MAC Fascinating eye kohl; the white eyeliner in the waterline will help make your eyes look bright and big like Elsa's.

Curl your lashes and apply some black mascara. I love Benefit's They're Real mascara.

That's it for it eyes, now to get a rosy glow on your face like Elsa has, use MAC Gleeful mineralize blush on the apples of your cheeks with a MAC 187 duo fiber brush. Using a brush like this will make sure just the right amount of color is applied to the cheeks, you don't want crazy red cheeks! Also NO bronzer for this look, people! Elsa is very pale, she's an ice queen!

Elsa has what looks like berry stained lips, to get that look I used MAC lipstick in Plumful. It's a lovely plummy, berry like color.

And that's the completed makeup look!

Today I was inspired to paint my nails blue and use some sparkle thanks to the lovely Queen Elsa as well. 

I used OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui, and Essie Bobbing For Baubles with Beyond Cozy on my ring finger. Nothing fancy but I love it! 

I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I enjoyed creating it! What did you think of it? If you try it out please let me know in the comments below.

xo, Momo
