ELSA From DISNEY'S FROZEN Makeup Tutorial

Hi Everyone,  Here’s my 3rd look for this years (2014) Halloween, And it’s Elsa from Disney’s Frozen! I love the movie and all the charters are just perfect but Elsa & Anna are my personal favourites, followed by Olaf (you gotta love a happy snow man).  But this look is totally all Elsa's, She had a pretty defined look in the movie with her multi toned purple eyeshadow look and perfect pink lips.  I recreated the look using 90% Drugstore products so it was easier to recreate if you wanted to dress up as her this year :) Enjoy Xx
