If your heart longs to be a Disney princess for Halloween, but you're worried it's something that only 8-year-old girls can pull off, rest easy. These epic Disney princess Halloween makeup tutorials will make you the belle of the ball. The very grown-up ball. Millennials have really come to own their love of Disney princesses. The Internet is loaded with reclamations of childhood favorites from hipster princesses to curvy princesses to real-life princesses to drag princesses. It's not a young girl's game.
These makeup tutorials are not child's play either. While some are simple to pull off with what you already have, some involve serious skill and impressive artistry. None of these tutorials require anything more than standard makeup. No special effects makeup or hard-to-find products here. Some of them do offer suggestions and even step-by-step instructions on how to complete the look, with hair tutorials and princess costume tutorials included.
Like always, you can swap expensive brands for drugstore dupes and vice versa so that the looks suit your preferences and budget. And while we're talking about the details, let's take a minute to remember that when we're playing characters like Jasmine, Pocahontas or Tiana, there is a line between playing a character and performing offensive acts of cultural appropriation.
Let it go. And by "it" I mean "your own face," because this tutorial will make you look just like Snow Queen Elsa.
