We’ve all longed for a little magic in our lives. From wanting a handsome prince to sweep us off our feet to wishing little bluebirds would come down and do all the housework for us, there are a lot of things to envy about the Disney princesses in our favorite stories!
Not only do the lives of these princesses often end up being elegant and glamorous, but they spend a lot of time looking elegant and glamorous, too! Flawless curls, gorgeous rouge and lips, and, yes, an occasional ballgown all add to the effortless charm of some of our most iconic heroines.
While we probably can’t teach you how to talk to woodland creatures like Cinderella or grow your hair a mile long like Rapunzel, we can help you bring a little magic and elegance into your everyday life with some simple, stunning makeup ideas.
After all, some of our favorite Disney characters teach us that beauty is whatever you make it, so try out some of these easy ideas to channel your inner princess wherever you go!
Disney-Inspired Makeup Ideas
You don’t have to deck yourself out in a ton of makeup and glitter to feel like a Disney princess (though, we say go for it, if you want to!). Instead, think about just a few of the things that make princesses feel like princesses. They are effortlessly beautiful (even in the face of struggle or danger), they are confident about themselves, and they know what they want!
All of these things can be accomplished in YOUR everyday life by embodying the spirit of your favorite princess. All it takes is a little confidence and a little makeup to match the mood!
1) Give yourself a little glow
The first step to becoming a princess is to have that inner glow that only the perpetually cheerful princess can have! Creating a luminous, cheerful look depends on adding the right pop of color to your makeup routine.
To do so, you’ll need highly pigmented, but light and effortless cream rouge to give your cheeks a gorgeous glow all day long -- all without looking like you’re trying too hard. Imbuing your day and your cheeks with a little bit of color can make you feel fresh and vibrant without needing a full face of makeup. These simple touches create the fresh, youthful, and simple look usually worn by princesses everywhere!

2) Make your eyes pop
The era of the Disney princess began in the 1930s with Snow White, firmly solidifying vintage makeup and fashion trends as the quintessential Disney princess “look.” That’s why we think vintage inspired makeup is one of the best ways to bring Disney magic into your everyday makeup style.
One of the Disney princesses’ signature features are their big and bright eyes that can easily be replicated with the right mascara. Besame’s black cake mascara is inspired by vintage makeup reminiscent of the glamorous styles of our favorite Disney princesses. Enhancing your eyelashes with mascara makes your eyes look bigger, giving any eye color a magical sparkle and effortlessly defined look.

3) Don’t forget your lips
And, of course, the key to any Disney princess look is to add subtle but powerful elegance to your makeup look through the perfect lipstick. Our princesses’ lipstick is flawless throughout all of their adventures -- and yours should be, too!
Lipstick is the perfect way to elevate an everyday look, turning even your simple makeup routine into a glamorous style. Pick a color that effortlessly matches your skin tone for a complete, polished everyday look.
