Princess Series: Belle (Beauty and the Beast)

I have been so in love with the new Beauty and the Beast movie starring Emma Watson. And it has inspired me to do a new series on the blog! I will create makeup looks inspired by the colors of the princesses dresses, and! I will be keeping it wearable and not too crazy...maybe, we'll see! 

This weeks makeup look is inspired by the beauty, book loving princess, that was able to find love in a dark place; Belle. 

Let's get started on the look! 

You always want to start off by priming the lids, keeps your eyeshadow's sticking, and lasting longer. I used the Urban Decay: Primer Potion in Original

Next your going to want to add a sticky, colored base. This will help enhance any colors you add to your lid. For this I used NYX Cosmetics: Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere.

Now it's time for shadows, to create this look I ended up using 4 palettes, mainly because I was very specific with the certain colors I wanted. 

Sephora: Minnie Mouse Collection Palette
Urban Decay: Urban Spectrum Palette
TooFaced: White Chocolate Chip Palette
Pixi + ItsJudyTime: ItsEyeTime Palette

To begin I applied Big Shoes To Fill (Sephora Palette) all over my lid, and blending it into my crease. 

For a transition color, I applied Honey Bear (Itsjudytime Palette) into the crease, to prepare for blending in my crease color. 

For my crease color, I applied Some Like It Dot (Sephora Palette) into my crease using a dome-shaped blending brush. Blending it out in an upwards motion. 

To highlight my lid, and blend out any harsh lines, using a fluffy blending brush I applied the white shadow from the TooFaced Palette.

To start finishing off the top lid, I applied Maybelline: Lasting Drama Gel Pencil in Striking Copper

To give more definition to my lashes, I applied the thinnest line along my upper lash-line. This will help your lashes look thicker and fuller. I used KatVonD: Tattoo Liner in Trooper Black

With makeup inspired by Belle, I think some people focus too much on her gold dress, and completely ignore her blue dress in the movies! So I decided to add it to my lower lid. Using L'Oreal: Silkissime Liner in Bleu Cobalt, I applied it to my lower water-line. 

To smudge out the liner and add more blue, I applied Evidence (Urban Decay Palette) with a small smudge brush along my lower lash-line. 

To brighten up the look, apply Nyx Cosmetics: Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk to the inner corner of my eyes. Apply on top of it Blue Rhythm (Sephora Palette). 

To finish the eyes, apply your favorite mascara! I used Benefit: Roller Lash in Black.

Since Belle is such a simple girl, I didn't want to give this look a bold lip. I stuck with more of a nude/mauve pink. Using CoverGirl: Katy Kat Matte in Kitty Purry.

I couldn't just stop there though...Belles dress is full of sparkle, and shines beautifully. So to bring that to my look, I applied Urban Decay: Vice Special Effects Lip Top Coat in Litter on top of my lipstick. 

And your Belle inspired look is complete!
