Zazu (from the Lion King) Inspired Makeup!

I love Disney movies.  They're so full of color and inspiration.  I was watching the Lion King with my family and like every scene all I could think was, "Wow, those colors are so pretty together!  I wonder how I could make it translate to makeup."  So I decided to go with a look inspired by Zazu ("that's Mr. Banana Beak to you!" haha).

What I used:
Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
NYX JEP "Milk"
MUG "White Lies" shadow
Sugarpill "Buttercupcake"
Sugarpill "Flamepoint"
A navy and light blue from my 88 palette
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara "Blackest Black"

Revlon Colorstay Foundation "Sand Beige"
L'oreal True Match Liquid Foundation "N2"
Maybelline Super Stay 24/7 Concealer "Cream"
Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser "Fair"
Covergirl Professional Loose Powder "Translucent Fair"
ELF Studio Blush/Brozer
NYX "Peach" blush

MAC "In Synch" lipliner
Cargo "Aruba" long-wearing lipgloss

I swear it looks better in person.  I've been awful lately at getting good pictures of my makeup.  I did a few looks this past week but I got bad pictures so I've been debating on whether or not to post them.  Maybe I'll do a big post of all of my "bad picture" looks haha.

Check out the amazing color combo options throughout this song!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!  Thanks, as always, for checking this out!  I appreciate you all so much!!  Thank you!!!
