I was wearing this tee the other day, which got me thinking about Ursula. You know, from The Little Mermaid? I friggin love Ursula. And hey, don’t all these ladies have some pretty wicked makeup going on?
Obviously, having a lot of spare time on my hands, I decided to pay homage to Ursula by creating an Ursula inspired look. Besides, I have a MUA palette that I swear was made for this very purpose.
I basically pulled out the majority of my arsenal, but the most important products used were without a single doubt the following:
Now. The idea is not to copy Ursula; what I was going for was a look that was a combination of how I generally do my makeup and what she wears, making it a wearable look. For me. Except for the fact that I would never go out wearing that much blue eyeshadow, especially not together with a bright red lipstick.
I also wanted the challenge of using what I already had rather than going out buying something new that would be closer to what she wears; e.g. a more orange red lipstick and fake lashes.
What I did differently from what I usually do was layered several of the blue shades and really tried to work the shadow further towards the brow than I usually do, closest to the brow there’s a silver shade from the Sleek palette, blended with a dark blue and then the blues from the MUA to enhance the blue in particular on the lid. The blue is also drawn out to the sides the full length of the eyebrow. I filled in the brows taking extra care to give them a sharp angle.
That blue. It is not bad. Will have to wear it again. But I think I’ll pair if with a less colorful lip color. Imagine it with a black lip. That would work for me.
Also, is it just me or does this really read more PJ Harvey in the 90s? Not that I mind. Just saying.
Actually, there’s a color exactly the shade she’s wearing in the MUA palette. I think I know what I’ll be doing next.
