Hi Guys & Dolls! In honor of this month being Black History month I thought it only appropriate to do Tiana for my latest Disney Princess tutorial! I only have 4 left in the series (Jasmine, Mulan, Giselle and Esmeralda) so I’m going to try to wrap it up in the next 2 months.
The Princess and the Frog is a twist of the fable of the Frog Prince. In 1920’s New Orleans Tiana is an independent young woman who works 2 waitressing jobs trying to save up to buy her own restaurant. She is a hard worker but she needs to learn to take it easy. The Prince takes everything a little too easy…and well, I don’t want to spoil it all! I could easily see the prince in the movie singing “Dancing Though Life” from “Wicked”.
I think Tiana is one of the better role models among the Disney Princesses- she isn’t waiting on prince charming to rescue her, she has a real life dream in mind, and I have mucho respect for her. I feel like Princess and the Frog is not as popular as it should be- the songs are cute, the animation is FABULOUS- combining several art styles in fantasy sequences. There’s voodoo and hoodoo and even a jazz loving alligator. In short, it’s one of my faves!
For my look today I took inspiration from Tiana’s Dress at the end of the movie- a soft mint with layers shaped like petals. I framed this mint color with a dark frame to punctuate the shape and bring in the darker elements of the movie.
On a personal note, I went out to dinner with Mikey and a few of our oldest guy friends. The guys loved this makeup! Always nice to get a compliment on fun makeup from straight guys! Take that every article that says guys prefer no-makeup!
