Makeup Monday: Queen Elsa Tutorial

Happy Martin Luther King Day!

And also Happy First Makeup Monday!!!

I have been working on this tutorial for about two weeks now! I went to the movies two weeks ago to go see Disney's Frozen and since then I haven't been able to get the characters, music and story out of my head!! The movie was incredible and all I do now is sing the songs and watch clips of the movie, aka I'm addicted...

"I'm Olaf! And I like warm hugs!"

While watching the movie, I took mental notes on Queen Elsa's makeup, because it was just so beautiful and she is also my favorite character! So I decided to do a makeup tutorial based on Elsa's makeup. This makeup tutorial is really simple and fun! So I hope you like it and if you have any ideas for a future tutorial, leave a comment below!

Queen Elsa
These are all of the products I used in the tutorial:

So I first started off with a fresh face (and of course Elsa's hairstyle):
Starting with my face I used Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Foundation in the color 10 Classic Ivory. I then used my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to blend it all over my face.
Next I used my Rimmel London Match Perfection Concealer and Highlighter in the color 125 Fair, using my Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush, under my eyes to brighten any dark spots.
Next I used my Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder in 001 Transparent to set the foundation using my Real Techniques Powder Brush.

Lastly, for my face, I used my L'Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Blush in the color True Match C5-6 Rosy Outlook/La vie en Rose. I used this on the tops of my cheek bones, lightly brushing this on with my Real Techniques Blush Brush.
I then went and filled in my eyebrows to fill in any gaps with my MAC Charcoal Brown Eyeshadow, using my MAC 266 Brush.
Now for the eyes: I used my bhCosmetics Cool Shimmer Eyeshadow 88 Color Palette. I used four colors circled below (unfortunately they do not have specific names, so I labeled them by number).
Using Eye Shadow #1, I used my Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush to blend it all over my lid, crease and brow bone. Then I used Eye Shadow #2 on the inner corner and middle of my lid, blending it out towards my outer lid. I also used Eye Shadow #2 under my eye to make the color pop more.
Using Eye Shadow #3, I put it on the outer corner of my lid, blending it with Eye Shadow #2. Next I put Eye Shadow #4 into my crease, while blending it in with the other shadows.

Next I used CoverGirl Perfect Point Plus in the color 200 Black Onyx to line my eyelash line and my water line.

Next, I used my Too Faced Lash Injection mascara on my top and bottom lashes.

Lastly, I used one of my favorite products, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in the color 010 Raspberry Pie.

And this is the Final Look! 
I hope you enjoyed my first tutorial and leave a comment below if you have any ideas for future tutorials! Also remember to follow me on my Polyvore, Instagram and Tumblr.
