Once upon a time…in a land, far, far away there lived a princess who had perfect skin, makeup, hair, a horse, castle and Prince to sweep her off her feet to Never Neverland.
Now today, we have our own version of this fairytale and the beauty that goes with it.
Around here in my house, we are big Disney fans. I have been forever, and now my son is too.
The modern princess can be achieved as we look at beauty through the ages and transformation of Disney beauty.
The early gals were animated with red stained lips or a barely there sheer pink lip. These gals, Snow White, Cinderella and Belle always seem to be heavy on the mini cat eye style eyeliner, and in my opinion it works for them.
The next form of Disney beauty comes in the form of a “Mousketeer”. Oh, to be a Mousketeer when I was a young girl.
This is a very young Annette Funicello in her Disney ears, Mousekteer uniform and very understated makeup. When I was young and auditioning for Disney, they stressed that the skin had to be clean and clear, with very little makeup. Meaning, a touch of gloss, one wee swipe of mascara and light powder. For me at the time, being the mascara hog that I am, it was going to be a challenge. Things in the Disney beauty department have changed a bit.
On the left side of the photo you can see Christina Aguilera in her Mickey Mouse Club days. It’s different from the Annette the Mousketeer in the fact that there is so much eye makeup, foundation on the skin and a heavy frost lipstick. As you can see from the graduation of the Mickey Mouse Club to a singing career, Christina’s look has changed dramatically. She’s always a beauty forerunner!
Today’s Disney Princess is a mix of modern day beauty and classic princess style. This is Giselle from Enchanted and it’s a very up to date makeup look again with a strong focus on eyeliner, sheer pink lips and a heavy dose of fairy glitter.
Though Disney has always had a fairytale princess, the new breed of shows have come out with a different incarnation of the princess in the form of Miley Cyrus in the dual role of herself and part time pop star Hannah Montana or Demi Lovato from Camp Rock.
This is an early photo of Miley Cyrus in her role and the makeup is simple and understated, still way more than the the Mousekteer days, but still a clean look. When she is dressed as Hannah Montana there is a no holds barred on the black eyeliner and shiny lip.
Demi Lovato in concert performances and in her character for Camp Rock always has a more edgy, red toned mouth, black eyeliner with maximum mascara applied.
As you can see, the beauty of Disney’s beauties has come along way! When it comes to you and your tweens and teens wanting to wear this look, just remember to tell them: ” television makeup is always more intense and a daily beauty routine can be worn that’s similiar just less is more.”.
