So for my next look in the No Princess Club Series I did Esmerelda, as I had a request for her a few posts back. I was inspired by the colors of her gypsy street wear, a mix of teals, pinks, purples, and golds and I have to say that while the look turned out a lot more feminine and bright than I originally intended, I quite like the look and I'm very pleased with it. I also wanted to curl my hair to look more like her, as she has beautiful wavy hair so I found an incredibly easy and very effective method of turning limp, lame, stick straight hair into sexy, boucy waves - stay tuned for it, that's at the end of the post. For now, here are some pictures of the look:
"Esmeralda is the heroine of Disney's 1996 film The Hunchback of Notre Dame and its sequel. She is voiced by Demi Moore. She is a fearless and streetwise gypsy with a heart of gold. She's also able to look beyond physical appearances and is one of the first -- and only -- people in both films to befriend the deformed yet lovable hunchback Quasimodo. Esmeralda is a wonderful heroine whose greatest wish is to see outcasts like Quasimodo and her fellow gypsies be accepted into society and be treated as people."
THE LOOK: Please excuse the devastatingly awful fake eyelash application, other than that, I'm very pleased with how this turned out. I used all shades from the Coastal Scents 88P on the lid/crease and then used Annabelle's Gold Shimmer in Solarbeam under the eye and into the tear duct. To line I used Lise Watier Aqua Liner in Violet (gorgeous!) and faded it into black liquid liner. I added lots of gold glitter under my eye as well but my shabby ass camera doesn't pick up glitter. The lips are a mix of a bright pink and mauve shades from my Sephora Holiday Palette with gold shimmer overlay and the cheeks are a mix of Rimmel Sunkissed Bronzer and NARS Desire. I heavily contoured and bronzed my face as well to get closer to Esmerelda's olive complexion.
THE HAIR: Now! On to the hair. I am one of those girls with stick straight hair that curly girls always envy, so, naturally I envy their voluminous bouncy hair. Unfortunately, my hair is very resistant to curling and styling. I've wasted hours on Youtube Tutorials and different products trying to get the perfect curl/waves but nothing has ever worked until now. And guess what, this curl method requires only a headband and some hairspray. NO HEAT! And that means, NO DAMAGE! I was skeptical at first - it was almost too easy (only takes 5-10 mins), but it worked! Look how curly and pretty my hair turned out. The tutorial is HERE and I highly suggest you try it out. It's pretty much fool proof, because, well I pulled it off! This style lasted about 10 hours with light hairspray.
