Starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, the perfectly cast Snow White and The Huntsman movie opens today. The ladies on our Beauty Team (already in love with Deborah Lippmann’s ‘Snow White & The Huntsman’ Nail Lacquer Set) are completely enamored with the blockbuster looks of the jealous queen and her object of envy. They jumped at the chance to share some expert tips for creating a little fairy-tale-flawlessness in your own reality.
Get the natural glow of this heroine that’s innocent and light, with just the right amount of pluck to ensure you’ll live happily ever after.
1 – Hydration is key! Go for a tinted moisturizer underneath a powder foundation. Use your fingertips and gently press into the skin for a natural finish.

2 – Choose subtle eye shadows and bring the color close to the lash line—this will keep the focus on your eyes and not your shadow. Use an angled liner bush to keep everything soft against the lash line.

3 – Don’t overdo your lip; we suggest a natural-looking gloss with just a hint of color.

4 – Apply a bit of highlight on the cheekbones and under the brow, and finish everything off with an innocent but tempting fragrance.
Try: DKNY ‘Be Delicious’ Eau de Parfum
Mirror, mirror on the wall, be the fairest of them all—no poisoned apples required, just luxurious vitality that’s all at once fierce and youthful. In short, fit for a queen.
1 – Again, start with moisturizer, but make it work even harder for you by applying a serum first. Get those haughty cheekbones by applying a pop of color to the apples of the cheeks blended up to the hairline.

2 – For the eyes, use a little neutral shadow in the same tone as your hair to define your brows. They frame the face—showing off your true perfection. You’ll also want a seductive, smoky eye, but give it even more magic with liner under your lashes and along the waterline.
Try: Yves Saint Laurent ‘Pure Chromatics’ Wet & Dry Eyeshadow Palette (in ‘Stone’)
3 – Go for a nude lip, but get bewitching definition by finding a lip liner in a similar color.
Try: Tom Ford Private Blend Lipstick (in Pink Adobe)
4 – Choose a fragrance that’s as unforgettable as you are. Make it longer lasting by spraying it on your pulse points right after the shower.
