52 Weeks of Disney: Week #3 - Dumbo

Dumbo is just a classic isn't it? I feel like its one of the most heartbreaking Disney films, with so many bits that make me cry but also bits that make me laugh (Hello elephants on parade) it truly is one of the greats! Dumbo has quite a hard colour scheme to get to grips with, so I was a bit stumped when it came to this look as I really really wanted to do the film justice. It was quite hard creating something that incorporated the main colour of Dumbo (grey) with brighter colours like yellow and red, which are notoriously hard to work with. But I hope I did him justice! What do you think?








I thought the red would be easier to incorporate into the eyebrows more than the lids and I actually really liked the result. I also used MAC Divine Knight eyeshadow, which I thought was a mix of grey and blue which worked perfectly as Dumbo is this sort of lavender shade of grey. It took me about 5 attempts at this look, I experimented with eyeliners and all sorts as the colour scheme is a pickle to get right, but I am happy with the way the final look came out. I really wanted to do this character justice as he is just the sweetest little thing, so I hope I did that!

Did you know Dumbo is the only character in a Disney film that doesn't speak? Its amazing what impact he has without saying a word!

    1. Thank you :) I had to find a way to incorporate the red and the brows seemed to be a way that it worked. I tried everything on the lids but it wouldn't work, thank god for eyebrows!

  11. Love this look, the eyebrows look great...maybe I should start doing teal/blue brows to match my hair? lol
    Dumbo was one of my first Disney films but I had to have the pink elephants bit fast forwarded because it would give me nightmares - not sure why but I remember being terrified of it!

    1. You totally should! If you have the hair to do it, then you should totally do it! I love the pink elephants bit, but a lot of people have commented saying they found it really scary haha! My twisted sense of fun I guess! :)
