52 Weeks of Disney: Week #5 - Saludos Amigos (Donald Duck!)

Hi everyone. Its been a while hasn't it?! First of all, sorry for being gone. I came down with an absolutely gruesome flu which went straight to my asthma and have had a horrible week because of it. I've been in bed, sleeping 20 hours a day (if not more), taking the most foul tasting antibiotics and generally being cared for by my lovely mum (sometimes living at home does have its benefits!) I'm not 100% better, BUT I am a lot better than I was and the other day actually felt well enough to do a make up look! It was kind of weird, as it seemed I had forgotten HOW to put make up on, so the look is something a little more simple than I am used to doing, just to ease me back in. I hope you don't mind!

So Saludos Amigos? I am now entering the era of the series where Disney was going through some financial problems because of the war. They didn't have the big scale budgets they were used to, so instead, embarked on making short films for a while. I for one LOVE Saludos Amigos! Its highly educational and includes some of Disney's most beloved characters which we rarely get to see in a film! For this look, I based it on Donald Duck and his traditional blue outfit. Its well worth watching, even if you can catch it on Youtube, you WILL learn something and the short stories are very cute. Now onto the look!








Not photographed is the Rimmel Scandeleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara*, which I forgot to include ^.^
As I said, its a pretty simple look to ease me back in. I used a sheer wash of one colour all over the lid and blended the edges with a slick of white eyeliner to jazz it up and give it that "Donald" feel. I added some little dots for Donald's buttons which in this film are white but nowadays are actually yellow I've discovered!
Once fully better I'll get more creative again, but for now this'll have to do! I'm gonna be doing a few looks in the coming week, just to catch up as technically I should be on week 8! Eep! 
Anyways, its good to sit down and blog again! I hope you all are doing really well! Until next time :)

Have you seen Saludos Amigos? Give me a comment below telling me your thoughts!
