4 Ways to Hack Your Makeup Like a Disney Princess
When you think of Disney princesses, you probably think of a picture-perfect lady who looks like she’s right out of, well, a fairytale. From her flowing, colorful gown to her absolutely flawless makeup, it’s hard not to stare and wonder just how they look so impeccable 24/7. While there definitely is some *magic* behind Disney princess perfection, they also rely on a slew of tricks and special products that seriously deliver. From heavy-duty makeup-setting face mist to sky-high, dramatic lashes, a Disney princess’s makeup game is definitely above average. Here are four beauty hacks that will have you looking like you’re right out of a fairytale too.
Since a Disney princess is outside all day — often in the hot sun — she needs a serious makeup setting spray that’ll ensure her products stay totally in place and don’t melt, smear or smudge. Sweat also stands no chance to Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer ($20), a Disney princess fave that’s hugely popular on Amazon. This stuff is also water resistant, which adds another layer of protection to your makeup. Lightly spritz this onto your face in an X formation and you won’t have to worry about your makeup at all.
USE NUDE EYELINER ON YOUR WATERLINE
An easy way to make your eyes look bigger and brighter — a trait that’s synonymous with that Disney princess look — is by using a nude, waterproof eyeliner on your waterline like Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer In the Nude ($10). Using a darker shade like black or brown can actually make your eyes appear smaller. Swipe on a flesh-colored eyeliner and you’ll notice a difference. You’ll also be totally camera-ready for pictures with all your fans. ;)
STEP UP YOUR EYELASH GAME WITH POWDER
If you’re a Disney princess, on-point lashes are essential. False lashes are professional royalty’s BFF because they’re a quick and easy way to create super exaggerated eye makeup, but sometimes it takes even more than that. To really get next-level lashes, cover your real lashes in a light dusting of translucent powder like e.l.f. High Definition Powder ($6) before you apply your falsies. Then, once the glue has set and they’re secured to your eyelid, add a couple coats of mascara to blend your real lashes with the false ones. The powder will instantly — and noticeably — thicken your lashes and amp up your look.
APPLY A LIPSTICK SEALER
Sometimes, all the lipliner in the world can’t save you from the fact that it’s straight-up difficult to keep your lipstick looking fresh after hours of wear. That’s where lipstick sealers come in. Think of them as a top coat for your lipstick. Lipcote Lipstick Sealer ($9) is a clear top coat that you apply over your lip color to give it extra staying power through natural daily wear. It won’t change the look of your lipstick, but you will notice that it seriously won’t budge.
