Test Run on Elsa Wig and Makeup

Apologies if this is in the wrong place. I just got my Elsa wig today and decided to test it out. Pics were taken on my phone because I could find my decent camera.

What do you guys think? I have not removed the lace front from the wig yet so you might be able to see that on my forehead -_-u I also need to add some wefts to the body of the wig for volume and add the embellishments!

Well that wig is amazing..O.O..lol
As for the makeup, It's hard to tell on the upper lid since humans don't have humungo eyes like cartoons..But it looks great and would work. Do you have glittery eye shadow on the upper? That would look the best, it's just hard to tell without your eyes half shut like hers in that reference, which might not look that good in real like haha I know she doesn't have glittery eye shadow, but there are little glimmers or something on there that hint at it, plus it would be more noticeable..

You could bring the shadow further up and out a smidge if you want. Otherwise, the two big differences I'm seeing are the brows and freckles. Her brows are fuller and darker, so if you want to replicate that you should. Adding the freckles would be nice, too. Your makeup looks on point, otherwise. Nice job!

Yeah the color of the first pic isn't great.

Here is a better picture of the makeup. This is a couple hours later so it's not as sparkly or vibrant;

Google Drive


I have freckles already lol I guess I'll "paint" some on for effect haha! I was worried about doing stage makeup, but I think because my eyes tend to eat shadow, I may have too!

Thanks for the suggestions!

Wig looks really good, nicely styled.

I'm scared of her eye makeup too, haha

She uses a slightly redder tint on her crease, as opposed to the pinkish tint you have going on. The wig is really good, especially compared to other Elsa wigs I've seen before. Also, she uses a matte lipstick-try using a little bit of powder, or blotting it slightly. Other than that, looks great! (Those are really nitpicky details anyway.)

The wig is amazing, what was the price on that? I agree with a few of the comments above. You might try bringing the shadow crease up towards your eyebrows a little more, darkening your brows, and using a matte lipstick. Are your natural freckles hidden by foundation? Your complexion seems flawless so I'd say go without foundation to show off the freckles. I'm excited to see the whole costume!

Overall, I think it looks pretty awesome! (That wig rocks.) The only things I would change are to use a slightly lighter pink (more bubblegum as opposed to rosy,) and use a light brown pencil to fill in your eyebrows.
