Disney Series - The Blue Fairy

46 comments:
 
I decided today I was going to tackle the Blue Fairy from Disney's Pinocchio. In order to represent her beautiful sparkly dress, and to challenge myself, I wanted to do a whole eye-look out of glitter. You can see her dress in action here. It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, especially since I wasn't working with cosmetic glitter just cheap dollar store craft stuff - but I managed to finish after a few hours. I didn't want there to be discernable colors to this look, just a kaliedescope of brilliant blues in all shades mixing in to one another and I think I achieved that. Have a look for yourself, but first here's some info on The Blue Fairy:

"The Blue Fairy is a character in Disney's 1940 film Pinocchio. She is a magical being who, fulfilling Gepetto's wish, transforms Pinocchio into a living creature, and later into a real boy. She also aids Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket throughout the heroes adventure, both directly and from afar. One of only two female characters in the film (the other being Cleo), she is nevertheless one of the most powerful characters in the cast; it is the Blue Fairy who initially grants Pinocchio life, and who ultimately decides whether or not the puppet should become a real boy. The character was inspired by the glamorous actress Jean Harlow, despite Disney's initial reservations."


I didn't get a lot of good shots of this look so there won't be many pictures today unfortunately. Here's what I did manage to capture though.


I added some glitter effects on the rhinestones to give it some extra glimmer. Bling bling!


And there's the close up of all my hours of hard work painstakingly applying glitter, rhinestones, stickers and beads to my eyes for the final effect. Next time I'm definitely investing in some actual cosmetic glitter though - this was such a pain in the ass. But beauty is pain, as they say.

I'm not going to go into detail about the product breakdown. I just used a silver creme base from Revlon's Quad Palette in Twilight and then got to work with the glittering, added some lashes and frosted my lips. Sorry if this wasn't a terribly exciting post., I'm exhausted from spending all week apartment hunting. Now just wish me luck getting all of this off!!!

  5. OMG, you definetely achieved that kaleidoscope bling-bling feeling! And it looks amazing! It suits your skin tone really well, also. It feels like you're a fairy yourself (which you kind of are, ok?). The lip shade is awesome! And I couldn't help thinking "if she pulled this off with cheap dollar store craft stuff, imagine what wonders would be made if she worked with actual cosmetic glitter!? That would be all kinds of win!" :D
    Well, it already is all kinds of win, so you should be proud! Which is good, now we know we can achieve a million-dollar-look with cheap stuff! Ain't that magic!? I told you that you're a fairy.. ;P

    Oh, good luck with the hunting!
    Hugs,

  9. GASP!!! OH MY FUCKING GOD! Curse words, and excessive exclamations, and CAPS are absolutely necessary!!! This literally made me gasp and took my breathe away! I showed this to my hubby, and even he said, "wow" and he doesn't give a crap about makeup. Meredith, I think this is by far my favorite. You get better each post, I swear! I can't wait to see what you come up with next. I'll probably have a heart attack or something. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! <3
