I recently got into watching Once Upon a Time and managed to watch through two seasons quite quickly - safe to say I'm hooked and eagerly anticipating season 3! One of my favourite characters is Snow White and i absolutely fell in love with the make up she wore in the scenes pictured about! So i decided to try and create my own make-up look inspired by hers. I say inspired because let's face it, its never gonna be identical so this is just my interpretation!
To create this look i started with Sheer Cover Base Perfector as i wanted a really smooth base as Snow White has very perfect and flawless skin - I'm not quite blessed with such luxury but we can pretend can't we? I used Avon Ideal Shade Foundation Stick in Ivory under my eyes and across my chin almost like a concealer to give me extra coverage, i then went in with my Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in 1.0 i wanted something really light on my skin because it's not obvious that Snow White is wearing any so i wanted to keep it very natural. I then filled in my brows using the shade 'Carbon' from the HD Brow Kit in Foxy - this is a matte black shade which is a lot darker than what i would normally go for but i wanted quite a bold brow for this look.
For the eyes i used Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette; taking the shade Walk Of Shame and applying it all over my lid, then i applied 'Naked 2' and blended it into the crease, i then took 'Faint' and applied that into the crease as well to darken it up a little bit and to define it a little more. I attempted to line my eyes using Primark Gel Eyeliner, I'm not that great at using gel eyeliner as i find it smudges everywhere but i gave it a go. I went for quite a large wing and a bold line as Snow White's eyeliner is quite bold too. I then coated my lashes with Benefit They're Real Mascara to make my lashes really long, you could even add some false eyelashes to make them even longer.
I then applied a little bit of Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory under the eyes to attempt to neaten the edges of the gel eyeliner and a little extra coverage for my dark circles. I then set everything in place using my Elf HD Powder, I'm not the biggest fan of this but its a translucent powder and i wanted to avoid adding anymore colour to my face by using my usual Benefit Powder
I applied George Blush in Rosy to the cheeks as it's a very subtle blush and Snow White has a very subtle hint of colour in her cheeks so i wanted to emulate that. To finish the look off i applied Essence Gel Tint in Pink Exposed to the lips, i didn't want it to be as bold as this product is so i applied it lightly with a lip brush to get a more softer tone of the pink and i blotted it too and i really like the shade it's turned out.
So yeah, that is my interpretation - i know its not the same as the one in the photos but i like the look i came up with and i hope you do to!
