Frozen is huge. It’s bigger than Elsa’s ice castle. Or her abominable snow-monster body guard. And people won’t be “letting it go” any time soon.
So, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! Here are some ways to keep that Frozen spirit alive and with you every day.
This post gave me an excuse to play with my make up for the first time in forever, so here is a look inspired by Elsa. All you need is some purple and pink eye shadow. Apply the purple all over the lid. From there, add a darker pink to the crease and blend. If you’re feeling crazy, add some glitter and fake eye lashes like I did. In order to do the side-by-side comparison justice, I had to perform a bit of photoshop magic to make me appear porcelain and blue-eyed. These things don’t come naturally!
I tried at least four times to draw a snow flake on my nails for you all. Unfortunately, my hand is about as steady as a three-legged Sven. Although I didn’t color completely in the lines, here are two nail looks I created. For snowy Arendelle nails, paint your nails a light blue color. After the paint has dried, take a tooth pick and dot polish on the nails, alternating between white and silver. To achieve my Olaf-inspired nails, paint your nails white and use a q-tip to dot them with a black polish. Top with glitter if you like and there you have it!
This one is pretty easy. To get into the Frozen spirit, dress for the cold! Hats, gloves, scarves. This is an eternal Winter we’re talking about! If you want a taste, come to Minnesota in January. To avoid those outrageous prices at Oaken’s Trading Post, i’ll gladly loan you the appropriate snow attire. Seriously though, if you want to Disney Bound Frozen style, check out this Pinterest board. There’s fashion for everyone, from Anna to the Duke of Weasel..I mean, Weselton.
Since it’s the holiday season, this would be a fun look to try at a party. Take some tinsel (you know, those thin strips of shiny foil you can decorate your tree with) and attach it to a bobby pin. Take said bobby pin and clip into your hair. As you can see in the photo, I put the pin in and braided the tinsel into my hair. Not only will the tinsel appear more subtle, but it will look like Anna’s strip of silvery white hair without the dye or hair chalk.
You don’t have to play dress up or apply make up to get into the Frozen mood. Your attitude can play a huge role! You can take attributes of the different characters and apply them to your own life. Anna is an eternal optimist. Her spunky, caring and energetic personality is something to be admired. To maintain a positive attitude like Anna, I try to write in a gratitude journal or compliment someone every day. Although Elsa was controlled and fearful for some time, she finally let down her guard to reveal a warm and playful personality. She reminds me to never take life too seriously, have fun and always stay young at heart.
How about it? Would you try any of these looks out? What ideas do you have? Let me know in the comments!
