Unpopular opinion time; I don't like Disney. As a child, I found the animal-based stories traumatic (who shows The Lion King to a child?! Bambi!?) and the princess-based ones frankly insulting (I need a prince to rescue me?! Well bugger that for a lark), and to be honest not much has changed. I know Disney princesses these days are a bit tougher and more able to stand up for themselves, or at least that's what I hear - I haven't actually seen Frozen or Tangled - but I still have the underlying issue that I also hate musicals. I know, I'm a terrible blogger.
Anyway, the people have spoken in our Twitter poll, and this week's theme for the #BeautiesOnFire collab is Disney Princesses, so I guess I'll have to go with that, just this once... In my own way of course! [If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out my intro to the #BeautiesOnFire collab, and my previous posts.] I decided I'd go with a villain rather than a Princess, and my favourite villain is, without a doubt, the wicked Queen from Snow White - I think I was on her side to be honest!
I've not had a whole lot of time to spare over the last few days, so I decided to go with a super-quick "inspired-by" make-up look which I threw on yesterday evening in about ten minutes, without even taking off my make-up from work. Actually all I did was my eyeshadow and add an extra coat of mascara... So we'll call this a wearable eye make-up look inspired by Queen Grimhilde, shall we?!
I started by priming my eyelids with a pink-purple cream eyeshadow from Models Own [side note; why am I, all of a sudden, rediscovering old, discontinued Models Own products!?] all over the lids, before patting on the purple shade from this gorgeous baked eyeshadow duo by Laura Geller. I then just deepened up the outer third and the crease with the two purple shades from this MUA baked eyeshadow trio, blended the whole lot out, and piled on a couple of extra coats of mascara. Ta-dah!
I actually really like how this turned out, it's simple and wearable but it does still remind me of Grimhilde. What do you think? Which Princess (or villain!) would you choose for a Disney-inspired look?
