3 Big Tips on How to Look Like a Disney Princess!

Those Disney Princesses…they have been roaming around our subconscience for how many years? Probably since we saw our first Disney movie, and instantly, we came to love them. We adored them, and we wanted to be just like them, to look just like them. Now this article isn’t really aimed at the eleven and under crowd, because all they have to do to look like a Disney Princess is put on the princess dresses that are so common now. They’re not reading this anyway. No, this is more for the older crowd who are Disney Princesses at heart.

The Disney Princesses are a Walt Disney Company franchise based on six characters, including Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle and Jasmine, who were all later joined by Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, and Rapunzel. The franchise has released dolls, sing-along videos, apparel, home decor ,and a variety of toys.

Squidoo.com has a cute list of Disney Princesses’ physical and personality characteristics. Your daughters might enjoy reading this with you. I gathered up a list of characteristics most of them had in common, and it’s a hard list of expectations to meet.

  • thin eyebrows
  • naturally pink or red lips
  • luminous eyes
  • often appears in a beautiful gown
  • long hair (except for Snow White)
  • beautiful clear skin
  • skinny, my guess is between a size 2 or 6

There are two princess exceptions. Mulan has thick black eyebrows and as opposed to a gown, she wears a traditional Chinese dress. Pocahontas sports a red geometric tattoo on her right arm and wears a traditional Native American dress.

So with the bar set so high on those appearance characteristics, how can YOU, living in harsh reality as opposed to Disney cartoonland, look like a Disney Princess?

Here are Three Big Tips on How to Look Like a Disney Princess.

1. Your Figure.

Holy Mickey Mouse ice cream bar, those Disney Princesses have small waists. Most of us real gals will not have this figure. Some of us never had it, even at our skinniest. Over 60 percent of U.S. adult women are currently overweight, according to estimates from the National Center for Health Statistics of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Just over one-third of overweight adult women are obese. So even if they made princess dresses for adult women, 60 % of us wouldn’t fit in them anyway.

You don’t have to seriously change the way you look to resemble a princess. I certainly don’t want you going overboard and developing an eating disorder. One quick way is to pick out clothes that flatter your shape. If you have a favorite princess, wear the color they wear, as long as you can pull off that particular color, like light green or lavender. Wear clothes that are flattering for your figure.

Now if you want to actually improve your physique, here are some tips that don’t involve gym memberships or exercise classes, though those would certainly make you look more like a princess as well.

  • Try to walk 3 to 5 miles each day, or get some sort of exercise.
  • Avoid sugary, fatty, and salty foods, you know, the good stuff we all crave.
  • Drop and give me 20! Pushups or sit-ups will do nicely.
  • Eat as many vegetables as you can each day, as they are high in vitamins and low in calories, unless you smother them in cheese and butter.
  • 90% of people who start diets each year gain back more weight than they started with, so take it day by day and don’t get discouraged.
  • Drink lots of water.

2. Your Hair.

The Disney Princesses appear to have their natural color hair, so crazy pink and purple streaks are out. No one is going to believe you as a princess with dark roots either. Long hair seems to be the trend among Disney Princesses except for Snow White. When you think about it though, these ladies could pull off any length hair, so go with what will flatter your face. Princess hair will look even more lovely with an accessory. A tiara like Cinderella or a jeweled headband like Jasmine or Aurora will add that princess touch.  This may not work in the office or on a daily basis, but it certainly will make a big impression for a special occasion, or perhaps a trip to Wal-mart over the weekend.

Find what length works for your hair, and keep it in good shape.

Webmd.com offers good tips on having beautiful hair at any age.  “Lather, rinse, repeat” may be standard hair care advice, but shampoo and conditioner alone won’t give you healthy hair. For the most luxurious locks possible, Web MD suggests you step out of the shower and into the kitchen.

“Your hair grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch every month, and the foundation of all of our new hair, skin, and nail growth is the nutrients we eat,” says Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, a Chicago-based dietitian. “If you eat a healthy diet, you will grow stronger and healthier cells throughout your entire body — inside and out.”

Here’s their Top Ten list of nutritious food for healthy hair. For the list in greater detail, visit webmd.com here.

  1. salmon
  2. dark green vegetables
  3. beans
  4. nuts
  5. poultry
  6. eggs
  7. oysters
  8. whole grains
  9. low-fat dairy products
  10. carrots

Webmd.com offered another article called “How Not to Wreck Your Hair.” I am a sucker for a good article title.  Here are the highlights, no pun intended!

  • Buy good tools with different heat setting options. Buy a professional blow dryer from a beauty supply store,  and look for dryers with a nozzle attachment to target air flow.  A diffuser will help distribute heat more evenly.
  • Protect your hair from heat by using hair products that contain silicone. When it comes to causing damage, “irons are worse than blow dryers,” says Carolyn Jacob, MD, a Chicago dermatologist and associate clinical instructor of dermatology at Northwestern University School of Medicine, Chicago. If you must use a curling or straight iron, you probably should not use it for more than three or four seconds per section to avoid potential damage.
  • Repair damaged hair. If your hair suddenly begins to break off, feels rough or more kinky than usual, looks dull, shows split ends, or sticks up in places it never did before, it’s most likely damaged. The best option is a hair cut, followed by at-home or salon repair treatments containing oils, moisturizers, and proteins.
  • Be patient. If one inch of ends is damaged, it may take two or three months to get your hair back in shape. Even if you keep your hair healthy with proper use of hair tools, you will still need a regular hair cut every 4 to 6 weeks.

3. Clothing.

Our Mouze Kateerz writer Hiromi wrote an entire piece on how iconic the Disney Princess dresses are.  If you put a princess in a different dress, it just doesn’t look right. So unless you are headed to a wedding or a Mardi Gras ball, you won’t be sporting a ball gown at all. What can you wear on an average day to bring out that Disney Princess in you?

  • Wear dresses or something pretty and feminine.
  • Avoid colors and styles that you don’t really don’t particularly like just because they are trendy right now.
  • Go for colors that suit you.
  • If you’re concerned about your waist, go for vertical stripes.  If you don’t like your arms, go for the Aurora or Belle-style sleeve dress.
  • Wear push-up bras, or a good bra at the very least. The princesses do show just a bit of cleavage. When done correctly, this looks classy. When done poorly, the look achieved is more reminiscent of Trailer Trash Barbie.

4. Oh, thy Princess face.

Thin eyebrows, pink lips, clear skin  – that’s quite a list.

  • Lip scrubs, neat eyebrows and facials should be the foundation of your princess flawlessness.
  • Make sure your make up seems natural.
  • Wear concealer that can not be seen.
  • Make sure your lashes are not clumpy, and if you wear false eyelashes, pick and choose where you wear them, perhaps not to the ball field in the summer.
  • And for heaven’s sake, don’t apply make up or brush your hair in front of people. You want to keep the illusion that you just woke up looking this fabulous.

I never imagined myself writing a beauty article. My husband took nearly 50 photographs of me before I could pick one I liked for the Staff Page here on Mouze Kateerz, and even then, I flipped it from color to black and white. I wear that all day, 8 hour lipstick that you have to scrub off at night, other wise I would have it smeared all over my face by 9 a.m.  My gray hairs are starting to show. I’m not a natural beauty, but how many of us ordinary mortals really are?

We live in a society obsessed with celebrities, and beauty, and like it or not, we are judged by how we look. We can’t change genetics, but there are steps to take that can improve on our natural beauty. I hope some of these tips will help you unleash your princess, maybe even look a little more like her. I am no longer young, my hair does not reach my waist, and I am not a size two. I honestly can’t remember ever being a size two. But I can take some steps to look like a Disney Princess, no matter my hair color or age. I’ve set my personal princess goals as drinking more water and eating less chocolate. I feel more princess-ey already!

Looks aren’t everything, though, right? Beauty is only skin deep, right? So what about the inner Disney Princess? Be on the lookout for Part Deux…”How to Act Like a Disney Princess” very soon.
