A young relative is staying at my home and we plugged in Disney’s “Pocahontas” to entertain her. It occurred to me that Pocahontas’s look in the movie could be emulated perfectly by both Asians and Indians, as her Native American features shares similarities with both. Here is my interpretation of Pocahontas’s makeup.
– Prep skin by applying your regular moisturizer and/or sunscreen. Because the makeup in this look is quite simple, we are going to kick it up a notch by adding MAC Strobe Cream for an illuminating, healthy glow. Massage a small amount into your skin over your moisturizer, focusing on the tops of your cheekbones and the brow bone.
– Apply concealer (MAC Studio Finish Concealer) where necessary to cover blemishes and undereye circles.
– Apply a powder foundation (MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation) in downward strokes using a powder brush.
– If you wish to contour to achieve Pocahontas’s high, sculpted cheekbones, try using MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in a shade darker than your skintone in the hollows under your cheekbones. Blend well.
– Pocahontas, despite her raven black hair, has brown eyebrows. If you are really committed to getting her look, try dying your eyebrows a dark brown or auburn color.
– Line the upper and lower waterline with black gel eyeliner (MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack) or your favorite black eye pencil.
– Using an fine brush, draw a thick line of black gel eyeliner over your lashes. Pocahontas’s eyes have a round, even crescent-shaped look, so do not bring the line out farther than the ends of your lashes- her liner is not winged.
– Apply false eyelashes if desired. Curl lashes and apply mascara (MAC Zoom Lash Mascara).
– Line your lips with a red lip liner (MAC Lip Liner in Redd).
– The animators at Disney gave Pocahontas red lips with a yellow base. Apply MAC Lipstick in Ladybug and you’re all set!
