Belle & the Enchanted Rose Beauty and The Beast Disney Inspired Makeup

Although I love Beauty and The Beast’s story I’ve always been more intrigued by the Enchanted Rose. It symbolizes the delicacy and slow bloom of love, yet is powerful enough to transform anyone. Today’s makeup look is inspired by Belle and the Enchanted Rose. I always thought Belle had a very rose-bud-esque look with her earthy eyes, flushed cheeks, beautiful skin and mauve pink lips. The whole idea for this look came together quite some time ago when the Lancôme La Rôse à Poudrer Highlighter‎ released in February. Just like the Enchanted Rose I immediately imagined this highlighter belonging under a glass bell!

Once I decided on the Enchanted Rose theme I started thinking about other rose inspired makeup that could be incorporated into this look.

Of course it was natural I choose the Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette and the Flower Jelly lipstick with the tiny rose embedded inside (just like the Enchanted Rose trapped in the glass bell!) From there it was simply a matter or replicating Belle’s glow-y, doe-like look. Check out the video below to find out exactly how to create this look for yourself!

NOTE: I do have eyelash extensions in, so you won’t see my putting mascara or lashes on in this video, but my favorite false lashes are THESE & THESE. I get my lash extensions at Hunter Paige Salon and they’re done by BethSee links in YouTube video description box for all products used!

Studded Friendship Bracelet How-To

Recently I learned how to make woven, chevron pattern ‘friendship’ bracelets using embroidery floss! I used this video tutorial for step by step instructions  for the weaving process — it’s the easiest-to-understand DIY I’ve encountered!

To make a wider bracelet simply use more strands during the weaving process.


To add the studs shown in my photos all you need is a few of whatever style studs you like (available at Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby or Michael’s) and a pair of small pliers. Position the stud as desired then punch the tabs of each stud into your bracelet. Use the pliers to turn each tab under to secure the stud. I think I like the square studs the best! Which are your favorite?

You can find pattern and color inspiration for your bracelet designs everywhere! 
My inspiration for the bracelet shown in the first photo was this note card and these washi tapes!
