The Little Mermaid ~Disney Princess Series~

Hi Guys & Dolls!

Today’s tutorial is another installment in my Disney Princess series! Ariel was the first Disney Princess I feel in love with- in fact it is the first Disney movie I remember! I had a dress-up skirt I would wear over my head and pretend it was long red hair like Ariel’s- and I drove my family trying to sing like her! When I was 12 and I dyed my hair red for the first time one of my “reasons” was that Ariel had red hair. Once a nerd, always a nerd.I used mostly drugstore makeup for this tutorial, and a bit of Sugarpill & Inglot but the most noteworthy thing I used were the Paperself Under the Sea lashes- they are die-cut out of paper!  They are a bit tricky to work with- I cut these down to less than half and practiced with the parts I knew I wasn’t going to use for the video. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did creating it!

What I used:


Moisturizer- MAC Strobe Cream

Primer- Tarte Clean Slate Flawless Brightening Primer

    I really love that green and purple combination. This is a really fun look. This would be a fun look to wear if you happen to be hosting a little girl’s birthday party.

    I really like this new sleek look of your blog, btw.

      Oh Thank you! I wasn’t sure about the switcheroo- I’m always trying to find a blog layout that is appealing and functional! I like a lot of the different elements of this theme- but now I need a nice header!

    You’re always entertaining but this is by far the funniest tutorial you’ve done yet between the mirror-faces and ‘good job Cora!’. Also I just really dig the look-my favourites are tied between this one, Sinderella and Tinker Hell.
    Good job Cora!
