Boho Babes Will Flip For This Coachella-Princess Ariel Costume
Of all the Disney princesses, The Little Mermaid's Ariel is the one we can relate to most. She's a DIY beauty maven (using a fork as a comb — that's creative!). She breaks the makeup rules by wearing red lipstick with her fiery crimson hair. Ariel also knows the power of a well-placed hair bow. But what if we remixed our favorite sea-bound siren for the 21st century? Ariel would definitely be the most bohemian of our girlfriends and the perfect Coachella companion.
We gave Ariel a festival-worthy makeover with the help of head makeup artist Joshua Quick at the Make Up For Ever boutique in NYC. This costume has all the Ariel essentials: red hair, a bright lip, and bronzed skin. But adding the metallic tattoos and flower crown make the look 100 percent flower child. Keep reading for a step-by-step guide to creating this hippie version of Disney's most spirited siren. The good news is this makeup look is one you can wear any day of the week, not just Halloween.
