Cinderella’s Castle ‘The Hub’: Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Inspired Makeup Series

After taking some time off from this series to give my annoyingly sore eyelids some time to rest, I’m back with the final instalment! The area around Cinderella’s Castle, known as The Hub, is probably my favourite place in the whole of Walt Disney World. I get a little emotional just thinking about it. The home of ‘Dream Along with Mickey’, my favourite minor show, as well as a prime viewing area for Celebrate the Magic Castle Show, Wishes and the parades. I recall many a days wandering around the hub with my drinks cart, pretty much getting paid to watch the show as well as my time vending at the popcorn stands. Oh how I miss it… speaking of… this post couldn't have come at a more perfect time really! I may have just booked a holiday to Florida…. NEXT MONTH. It was a last minute thing between me finishing university and heading out to work on the cruise ship. I’m heading out there for 10 days on June 3rd, which just so happens to be exactly a year since I headed out to start my Disney College Program. All the feelz!

So, I wanted to do something fun yet classic with this look as well as attempting something I’ve never done before. I settled on an ombre winged out liner, graduating from white through pale blue, to darker shades. Using loose pigments, I combined them all with mixing medium to give a brighter colour and to help make the application more precise. I also gave abit of definition to the eyelid by using a highlight shade (Urban Decay Venus) all over and a light brown (Urban Decay Naked 2) through the crease. Creating the look was easier than I thought, as I predicted i would have some trouble perfecting the blending of two shades, but it was actually rather simple. I rounded off the look with a pink blush and a bright pink lip, to reflect the castle’s pink/purple glow at night.
