Makeup Tutorial, Misty Copeland, Disney, The Nutcracker

My Misty Copeland Inspired Look in Honor of Disney’s “The Nutcracker”.

One of my several women crushes is the beautiful and talented Misty Copeland, who overcame the odds and became the first African-American principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre.


I went to see Disney’s “The Nutcracker” last week, which she was in, so I decided to do my best to honor her by doing a makeup look inspired by her. I found this picture off of “Ballet for Adult’s” Pinterest Account and went right to work so I’d be ready for the movie!

I read in this article from Allure that Misty doesn’t like to contour, so I made sure to skip that step. It also said that she likes rosy cheeks, so I made sure to keep that in mind for my look.

Misty does like highlighter when she hits the red carpet, but since I’m sticking to this picture shown above, I’ll be highlighting my upper brow area instead.

I started out using both my Urban Decay Primer Potion and my Anastasia Brow Wiz. Next, I used my Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette.


I swiped my eyes with the color “Skimp”, first. Then, I put the color “Undone” in the inner corners of my eyes.


In the middle of my eyelid, I put the color “Cover”. I put the color “Stark” in the outer corners of my eyes and a dab of it in the middle.




Then I put Gerard Cosmetics Eternal Liquid Black Liner on my lids.

For my blush, I chose the color “Rose” in my LORAC “Beauty and the Beast” Palette. Then, for the highlighter for my browbone, I used “Oh my brow!” The mascara I used is from Urban Decay, and I will be reviewing it in a blog very soon! So more on that later.



Here’s the final look:


Here I am in front of the poster, after the movie, all happy and giddy!
