Makeup Inspiration

Dorothy - Wizard of Oz

In appreciation of the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, I decided to do my makeup inspired by it, one of my favorite movies.
Please excuse the poor iphone quality

 I took inspiration from Judy Garland, and adorned myself in white lace, and baby blue colours. I chose to do a striking red lip to compliment the colour used in the movies and to somehow pay homage to her gorgeous hair.
This is the look I came up with: Baby blue on the majority of the lid and a darker 'sky' blue on the outer corner, these colours represented Dorothy's dress and bow. I used almost a canary yellow gold colour on the inner corner of my eye to represent the 'Yellow Brick Road' that Dorothy has to walk down.  The red on my lips is a deep red matte lippy, this one is from the brand savvy and in the colour 'Miss Monroe', the colour is fitting, I chose this because I wanted an 'old hollywood' look.

Ice Blue: applied to majority of eyelid
Baby Blue: applied to outer corner of eyelid.
Yellow Gold: applied to inner corner.

I added this baby blue, bow headband and then put my hair into two loose french braids on either side of my head with a part going straight down the middle. I matched the blue colours of my eye make up with this.

I curled my lashes and then applied a coat of benefits 'They're Real' mascara (my current fave) and then applied some false lashes to the outter portion of my eye to give me the 'doe eyed, bambi' look that Dorothy has because she's just an innocent little girl, this was fun to play with. I also did a slight wingged eyeliner to add to the classic hollywood look I was going for.

Last but not least, you have to have the ruby slippers, and sadly mine aren't as glittery as the real ones, but these did the trick to complete the look.

I had a lot of fun, and might end up doing more makeup inspiration posts in the future, I forgot how much fun it is to play dress-ups and use colours.

This would be such a cute look for Halloween, its very easy and can be dressed up or down.
