Hey everyone! I'm so excited to share with you my first Halloween tutorial for this year. After having such a fun time recreating Princess Jasmine's look last year, I decided to try out another one of my favorite Disney Princess: Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
I distinctly remember the first time I watched the opening scenes of this movie and being totally awestruck at the graphics and instantly fell in love with Belle's pure-hearted and book-loving character. I knew that's the kind of person I wanted to be someday. Maybe tutorial-recording day became that day. ;)

Here are some images of the gorgeous Belle which I used to base my look of of. As you can see, her look is elegant and natural with a focus on long, black lashes, sweet pink cheeks, and warm rosy lips.
And here is my take of the look. Neutral colors, but more put-together than your average "natural" look. Slightly more defined brows, soft cheeks, gentle highlighting, and layered lip products to last all Halloween night! :)
A close-up to show the soft, cut-crease eyelid shading. Juxtaposing a matte crease shade with a metallic lid color gives the eyes a glowing and dimensional appearance.
Here you can see the whole look pulled together. I flipping love this Leg Avenue golden dress! I always, always wanted Belle's dress and this cute Halloween version makes me feel more princessy for sure. ^__^
And of course, my beloved Beast. Can't you tell we are in love? I looked past his snaggle tooth because come on, anyone who has an appreciation for roses and fine, bright blue-with-gold-trim suiting is a catch in my book.
Full-length images of the full outfit, hair, makeup, and heels. If you are interested in my actual "Storybook Beauty" costume, I am wearing size XS which is slightly too long in the torso on me but would be perfect for someone 5' or taller. Leg Avenue costumes are sold nearly everywhere though, so it shouldn't be too hard to find especially online. :)
Costume: Leg Avenue size XS
Hair: Mom's vintage necklace (similar here)
Heels: Simple Leather Platform Pumps size 210mm
A huge thanks to Daniel and the Leg Avenue team for sending me off with some fab costumes during my visit to the main office this past summer! You guys are SO creative and make me love dressing up for Halloween each year. <3
Also, my heels are from jgshoe.com which is a new petite shoe website which I am super excited to share with you since they carry heels that fit my petite feet. I actually stumbled upon them while browsing around so I'm looking forward to telling you more about them in the future. ;)
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and as always, I hope that this look will come in handy for the holidays or whenever you want to look a bit more polished!
