Elsa Inspired Hair and Makeup

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Once again my little sister wanted to look like a Disney Princess so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for an Elsa Inspired look. Obviously this is a wearable look and I love it as it involves a lot of purple.

Firstly I sprayed my sisters second-day hair with a dry shampoo and massaged it in. This is great to add volume and will make it easier to tease later on.

I then teased the top section of the hair a lot. I kept taking different sections and teased them to create lots of volume. After you are happy with the amount of volume, smooth over the hair to make it look neat and not messy from backcombing. I then secured it with a clip to make sure that it stayed with lots of volume. I twisted the section before clipping it down too.

After I had secured the front section of the hair back, I began a french braid. This is just a regular french braid but make sure that you make it go the side of the head gradually.

After securing the braid in a blue, sparkly bobble, I tugged at the plait to make it bigger and look thicker.

I finally pulled part of the hair out and slightly curled them away from the face and onto the hair with my straighteners.

This is the final hairstyle!


I started by taking MACs paint pot in Painterly and using a flat brush to wipe it over the lid.

Next I took Faint from Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette and dusted it into the crease and on the lid. 

Next I took this colour from Wet N Wild's Petal Pusher palette and used the same flat brush to pat it all over the lid.

Next I took MACs Nocturnelle and dusted it with a fluffy blending brush in the crease.

I also mixed this red eyeshadow and sparkly pink/red colour and put those in the crease too because Elsa had a cranberry colour in her crease and purple on the lid.

I then used Foxy from my Naked Basics palette and went under the eyebrow with a Real Techniques Detailer Brush.

I then used Venus from the same palette and applied this to the brow bone and inner corner with the same detailer brush.

Next I applied a thin coat of Wet N Wild's Mega Liner in black and created a tiny cat eye.

Whilst I was letting her liquid liner dry, I filled in her brows with a combination of Maybellines Mastershape in Soft Brown and Naked 2 from the Naked Basics palette.

Next I dusted some purple shadow under her eye and also a combination of black and purple eyeliner and smudged it out. I also lined her waterline with a nude eyeliner to make her eyes appear bigger like a Disney Princess.

To finish the eyes, I took a clear mascara on the bottom lashes and used a black mascara on the top ones but my sisters eyelashes are so long that mascara can ruin the look so I wiped the wand first in a tissue to get some of the product off.

I then took Maybellines Age Rewind in Light and highlighted her face. I applied this on her cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and under the eyes.

Next I took a cream blush and put it on the apples of her cheeks and a little on the tip of her nose because Elsa has a red nose. I also put some of Baby Lips Cherry Me over the top to make the blush more red than pink.

To finish the look I lined her lips with a NYX Lip Pencil and applied a pink lipstick and Baby Lips Cherry Me over the top.

Since she was dressing up, I also used a glittery liquid eyeliner to draw 3 stars on her cheek but this obviously I wouldn't do if I was wearing this out.

That is the finished Elsa Look!
