Watch One Woman Transform Into 7 Disney Characters In 90 Seconds

And not just the princesses!

Posted on

But with the help of Lijah Stewart, MAKE UP FOR EVER Director of Artistry and Education, and Yvonne MacInnis, MAKE UP FOR EVER Assistant Managing Educator, I got transformed into seven different Disney characters.

My eyes and skin were angry with me for a few days, but hot damn, it was fun. (And kind of terrifying?) But mostly fun.

Here's a better look at each of the seven characters:

This transformation made 3-year-old Rachel's dreams come true! I was obsessed with The Little Mermaid as a child; my mom has home videos of me doing my interpretive dance to the soundtrack for like 40 minutes straight. I truly believed my tiny toddler 'fro was actually long, beautiful red hair.

2. Ursula

This transformation made my mom's dreams for 3-year-old Rachel come true! (She liked the music from The Little Mermaid, but always thought Ursula got a raw deal, and always reminded me that that's not the way the original story ended and also that she wished Ariel could have just been happy with who she was.)

7. Queen Elsa

As we were doing these transformations, it was so fun to recognize the features that define most of the Disney princesses... and most of Disney villains. (Basically, Disney princesses have huge eyes and long lashes and Disney villains have brows on fleek.) We realized during the last transformation that the thoroughly modern Queen Elsa's features are a little bit of both.

Also, maybe it was because I'd been listening to Hamilton for three weeks straight, but this transformation made me feel like the world's most elegant founding father.

Partial product list: Ultra HD Stick Foundation #R230, Super Matte Loose Powder #2: Pale Pink, Powder Puff, Aqua Brow #10 and #30 mixed, Artist Shadow #M-100, Aqua Cream #54 Lilac, Artist Shadow #ME-912, Aqua Black, Star Powder #942: Mauve, Diamond Powder #7: White Turquoise, Smoky Stretch Mascara, Rouge Artist Natural #N21, Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil #25C: Orange Red, Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencil #14C: Light Rosewood, and Lash Show #N-405.
