I let my Discord decided what makeup look I would do, and Queen of Hearts ended up winning. So, I decided to pull inspiration from a few different places for this look. Those being: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and the playing card for the Queen of Hearts. I think you’ll find subtle nods to each version in the look. From the color palette to the lips to the roses painted red to the drawn appearance of the card. I really like how the look turned out… and of course, it gave me an excuse to put on a crown and my favorite blood-red wig.
This last week has been packed with various things, as I finally stopped playing old games that I’ve previously beat and watched two movies. I know a shock to me too. I was getting in a runt there for a little bit and not exploring anything new.
For this week’s Pop Culture Download we’re just going to be focused on The Mandalorian as its the only new thing I’ve watched since the rest has consisted of watching the classic Disney movies on Disney+. Plus, I watched it twice so it gets it’s own dedicated post.
Pantone has announced the Color of the Year 2020, it’s Classic Blue (19-4052) and I thought it would be fun to do this again. Last year, I did it when the Color of the Year (2019) was Living Coral. So I thought I would do something similar again, though this time instead of a creative makeup look based off the color, I’m just going to use it as the base for my regular eyeshadow look.
Are You the One I’ve Been Looking for? Overview of the ColourPop x Disney Frozen II Anna and Elsa Shadow Palettes
ColourPop and Disney collaborated yet again for a Frozen II Collection, which included two 9-pan palettes named after each of the sisters: Anna and Elsa. Each palette costs $15, includes a mirror and comes in a cardboard packaging. I love Disney, and recently saw Frozen II (see The Pop Culture Download #18 for my thoughts on the movie). I’ve been listening to several of the songs on repeat since seeing the movie. So, even though I swore I wasn’t going to buy anymore palettes… I couldn’t stop myself. I had to get these.
With the Thanksgiving holiday, I ended up spending time with my family and one of the things we do for traditions is watch movies. We ended up watching two different ones. The first being Christmas in the Smokies on Netflix and the second being Frozen II. I’m not going to share the plot or discuss either in great detail in case you haven’t seen them yet and want to.
