This year, I decided to have 2 getups- Queen of Hearts inspired by Alice in Wonderland & Elsa from Frozen.
Well, Elsa was a last minute spinoff because my friend Tammy pulled me to join her princess clan. I also wanted the challenge of being a character where I could don my long blonde wig that I bought earlier this year for my company D&D, where I came as Emma Frost from Xmen & blogged a tutorial too.
Hence, Elsa perfectly juxtaposed my everyday style, and isn’t that what Halloween’s all about?
I did my own makeup so here is the tutorial as promised on my Instagram post.
But first, let me take a selfie this was the final look!
Step 1: Starting with a clean bare face, use a white pencil liner to draw the top curve of your heart.
Step 2: If you aren’t good with drawing, then draw the bottom “V” first, where the end is touching your chin, before you complete the heart
Step 3: Fill in the heart with white cream/foundation, and try to cover as much of your natural brows as possible
Step 4: Outline the heart with black pencil liner
Step 5: For a more 3D effect, I used my Vice3 palette red eyeshadow for the outer corner of the heart – mixing Alchemy & Sonic, and used an eyeshadow brush to just fade it out like a gradient
Step 6: I used the light blue eyeshadow (Vice3 palette – Freeze) to apply all over my lid, slightly above my crease and with a black eyeliner, I drew a dramatic arched brow shape
Step 7: With the darker blue eyeshadow (Vice3 palette – Heroine), I applied it to the outer corner of my brow bone for a more intense look, fading it slightly in haha. I also used my Daiso $2 liquid liner (Princess brand) for an wingtip.
Step 8: With a black eye pencil, I drew a super dramatic black line as a comical double-eyelid 3D effect, before applying mascara and falsies.
Step 9: With my deep red matte lipstick, I applied it all over my lips. Then, with the black pencil liner, I gently lined the outer corner for that IN-YOUR-FACE thick lips.
I used an extra white foundation to change my skin color and dabbed white powder over – covering my natural brows and lips too (because I had to fake Elsa’s super thin & arched brows, as well as thin lips).
To mimic Elsa’s eyes, I used 3 main shades of eyeshadows: bright purple, bright pink, and dark purple.
I filled in my inner and outer corners of my upper lid (leaving the middle empty) with bright purple, before filling in the middle with bright pink.
I then used a dark brown eye pencil to fake a high double-eyelid crease that Elsa has, before blending it out above my brow bone with dark purple. I also added a bit of purple to my lower lid.
With a black eye pencil, I lined my entire rim (top and bottom), before finishing it with mascara and falsies.
I used my medium brown Face Shop eyebrow pencil and made a really thin, long and arched brow.
As Elsa has a pointy-tip nose and lower bridge, I just shaded a nose contour at the bottom of my nose.
I then used my Canmake matte blusher and Daiso nose contour powder to contour my cheekbone.
Lastly, as Elsa has really thin and almost non-existent lips as compared to mine, I decided to apply a fuchsia lipstick to just the inner corner. Just compare it to my Queen of Hearts version!!
I wore my blonde wig, braided it, and
As it was really last minute, I didn’t get the proper gown or comb-backed fringe but I was pretty satisfied with my rendition!
Okay, maybe I looked a bit like Annabelle x Elsa in this photo haha.
Hope you enjoyed this post!
