Fairytale Inspired Tutorial: The Princess And The Pea

click any photo to enlarge

Hello All! Blogger was on a bit of a vacation so I wasn't able to post this when I wanted too...This look is a request by TheCandiedMango so I decided to take her up on it!

First thing I did after applying my concealer and foundation was apply Urban Decay's Primer Potion in Eden all over my lids. Then I applied a color base on top of that. The pink shade I used was Victoria's Secret's Beauty Rush Chubby Eye Stick in Pink Flash

After this I patted a mid toned pink all over my lids. I used most of my eyeshadows from the Victoria's Secret Total Makeup Kit and this particular pink had a bit of golden shimmer to it which added another pretty element to the total look. (sorry if you can't see it in the pictures...I rally tried to pick it up!)

I blended the edges with a lighter toned pink and highlighted my inner corners with a white with a touch of pink. 

For the "pea" portion of the princess and the pea I added a grass-y/pea green to the outer corners and into my crease, blending upwards. 

For the upper highlight I used Wet N' Wild's Vanity Palette (the lightest matte color) and under the lids I used a pretty pale blue, shimmery liner (NYX eyeliner Seafoam Green) ) to make the look a bit more "dreamy" since after all, the princess was proved to be a princess because she was able to feel the pea from under all those sheets! For the upper liner I used Milani's Liquif'eye in brown and winged it out taking the color into my waterline. 

I finished it off with Benefit's Bad Gal Lash Mascara and the eyes are done!

For the face I kept it simple. I used the bright pink blush that came in the Victoria's Secret palette an used the lighter shimmery pink as my highlight. 

And finally for the lips I used Stilla's Lip Glaze in Harmony over my lipbalm and the look is finished!

I am so happy I was finally able to put this tutorial up!  It took me forever to be able to but I'm pretty happy with the results! I'm totally going to keep this series going! If you try this out please send me a link  to the pictures! Not totally your thing? Change it up! Any fairytale characters I missed? Let me know! 

Stay happy and healthy!
