Since Spring is around the corner and the new release of Disney’s Cinderella, I wanted to post a little blurb on princess inspired beauty with a little spring influence. A modern Princess should have the perfect scent. I don’t know if they sell a perfume that smells like woodland fairy dust or the sweet scent of house servant but here are some scents that I would recommend to any modern day princess.
Miss Dior Cherie: This scent is for the flirty chic princess that wants to make a subtle statement. This scent barely lingers so no man will forget. She smells like a sweet kiss.
Viva La Juicy: This scent is for the wild and carefree princess who may not be prim and proper but loves to spend her time outdoors and enjoys a good dose of vitamin D. This scent is for the girl who loves to put wildflowers in her hair and frolic in the wilderness.
Victoria Secret Bombshell: This perfume is for the edgy cool and collected princess. The girl who takes charge and does not take no for an answer. She is strong-willed and head strong. Her scent gives off a mood of sophistication.
If you notice with princesses in the Disney Franchise there is a very distinct look. They are very doll like and dewy. They are “wide eyed” and sometimes encompass a large portion of their face. Unfortunately most humans are not made with doll like eyes. So a subtle trick that can transform any maiden into a princess are lashes.
I tend to stick with Mink lashes since they give the most natural effect to the eyes. Mink lashes can expand and round out your eyes without looking too “fake”. I am using the word fake loosely since lashes will change your eyes dramatically but in my opinion Mink lashes will achieve doll like eyes.
I buy mine from Velour and Flutter. In this photo I chose lashes that are longer at the center of the lash than any other point, since this look will achieve rounded eyes to make your eyes appear larger and doll’like.
Another aspect of Princess beauty would have to be her “blushing beauty.” A princess always looks perfectly flushed. She is of course naturally born with an apple like tone to her cheek. However in the midst of Spring I want to share some favorite affordable blushes that are perfect for spring and give a flushed appearance similar to any princess.
These are Physicians Formula Argan Wear blushers in Natural and Rose. Instead of swatching them, I will show you a photo of me wearing the color “Rose”. As you can see it gives me a rosy toned shimmery flush. I like how it is obvious I have blush on but it looks like I am actually blushing. This is the look I believe every princess achieves and every aspiring one should aim for.
I love princess hair, even if she is running through the forest on the back of a horse or just frolicking through the fields near her castle, her hair is always put together and flawless. I have an updo here that I feel would look amazing on any princess or woman for that matter.
Hairpieces also put together a look. Hairpieces can enhance any hairdo. Preferably ones with rhinestones, pearls or flowers will do. You want to keep it simple yet elegant. You can see some amazing hair pieces at Handmadebysarakim.com
These are just a couple tips and ideas which I believe can make any woman feel like a fairy tale princess. Which feature is your favorite?
