Stone-Cold Beauty

Get the Ice Queen’s icy stare with frosty white lined eyes. Trace your waterline with white eyeliner and finish with lashings of white mascara. Keep the look glacial and give your cheeks an iridescent wash of color and paint your pout a pale peach.

Pro tip: Dab gloss just at the center of your lips to give it a fuller but not exaggerated kiss

Fairest Of Them All

We took inspiration from evil Queen Ravenna’s dark-as-night smoky eyes with a smattering of gold. Makeup artist Chuchie Ledesma’s interpretation features clean lids, a golden cat-eye and clumpy false eyelashes at the bottom. Warm up the look with sun-kissed blush and hint of color on lips.

Pro tip: For bold beauty looks such as this, keep hair away from your face and in a neat ponytail. Make it pretty and tightly braid the tail.
