The products used to get Lily’s simple makeup look were the “Giorgio Armani Maestro foundation…MAC cream blush—a pinky cream—and a pale Chanel pressed powder”, according to makeup designer Naomi Donne. Donne also occasionally used the “Chantecaille loose powder” (Emily Blunt is a fan of the brand) and either “a soft pink blush from Chantecaille” or the “MAC powder blush in Fleur Power”. There’s no eye shadow or eye makeup at all, a completely clear lip balm, and the only other (optional) addition is some soot from a fireplace! Foundation or concealer, a little blush for rosy cheeks, and some powder for shine sounds like an easy Halloween look for us Disney Fanatics (we’ve also put cheaper dupes below)!
On to hairstyling! “Herbal-based hair color” was actually used to dye Lily’s dark hair to blonde for Cinderella, and it was the actress’s off-duty style that inspired the agrarian maiden’s hairstyle. According to Allure, “Lily would show up to set with her hair in braids”, and hairstylist Carol Hemming thought that “it looked young and different from all the other characters who were perfectly coiffed.” To get your own delicate braids, check out the hair tutorial directly below! We’d recommend leaving your hair down, and just doing one or two braids that you can tuck behind your ear. A butterfly twist would also look lovely for a Cinderella outfit!
If you’re going for Cinderella’s ballroom look, then try taking the “top layer” of your hair, braiding it, and pinning said braid on your head like a headband “to create the illusion of a tiara” with the rest of your hair hanging down in soft curls. There’s a tutorial for that below!
As for Lily’s own methods when it comes to making her skin radiant, the English actress is all about cleansing, toning, and moisturizing consistently. She also suggests cleansing only at night, in order to “keep the natural oils” in the morning, and switching your skincare products around often, “because your skin gets used to stuff”. For her own everyday Cinderella glow, Lily uses the “Charlotte Tilbury compact” which has “gold shimmer and the pink” (she recommends applying this “on your cheeks, on your lips, on your eyes, and you’re good to go”) or the “soft, liquidy” blush by Dior. The actress focuses on keeping “everything fresh and young”, with “nothing too heavy”; she likes “the feeling of [her] skin breathing”. Lily is also a big supporter of keeping a makeup look “bright and fresh” by accentuating “either the eye or the lip”. Lastly, who’s this Disney princess’s beauty muse? It’s actually Keira Knightley, another inspiration for one of our Halloween costume tutorials!
