Step 1 – Prep your face:

Apply moisturizer to your face, allowing it to soak in while you work on your eyes.

Step 2 – Eyeshadow base:

Apply P Louise eyeshadow base on your eyelids to ensure your eyeshadow stays put and appears vibrant.

Step 3 – Pale eyeshadow:

Use a pale eyeshadow below your eyebrows to create a visual lift and help with blending later.

Step 4 – New crease:

With a Bobbi Brown Smoky Eyeliner Brush, draw a new crease above your natural one in a rounded shape. Start at the middle and fade it out inwards and outwards.

Step 5 – Blend and smudge:

Use a smudging brush to fade the eyeshadow upwards, creating a lifted look. Remove some color from the brush and apply the eyeshadow in layers, keeping it subtle and natural.

Step 6 – Redefine the crease:

Apply P Louise primer (shade 0.5) to redefine the crease, followed by the pale eyeshadow you used earlier on your eyelids.

Step 7 – Outer corners:

Apply brown eyeshadow to the outer corners of your eyes.

Step 8 – Thick upper lash line:

Use Inglot Gel Eyeliner to create a thick line along your upper lash line.

Step 9 – Flick and line:

Add a small flick on the outer corner of the eye and a line extending downwards to create the illusion of larger eyes.

Step 10 – Pale eyeliner:

Apply pale eyeliner (such as Note Automatic Highlighter Pencil) to the inner and outer corners of your waterline, making your eyes appear more open.

Step 11 – Light pink:

Apply Nyx Inner Eye Brightener in Linen below your eyes.

Step 12 – Lower lash line:

Use a dark brown gel eyeliner to draw a thin line below your lower lash line, smudging it slightly with the smoky eyeliner brush.

Step 13 – Shimmery white:

Apply shimmery white eyeshadow from the GlamLite palette to the inner corners of your eyes and on the pink below your eyes.

Step 14 – Eye bag shadow:

Use brown eyeshadow to add a subtle shadow below your eye bags, creating the illusion of larger eyes.

Step 15 – Powder:

Apply a touch of powder to set the makeup.

Step 16 – Green eyeliner:

Use a green eyeliner to extend the appearance of your iris, blending it in slightly with a cotton ball.

Step 17 – Full coverage foundation:

Apply a full coverage foundation to your face, evening out your skin tone and providing a blank canvas for the rest of the makeup.

Step 18 – Contouring:

Using the darkest color from the Note Contouring Palette, contour below your cheekbones, under your jawline, and on your neck to create more defined facial features. If you have a round or square face, add some of the middle color to create a more heart-shaped or diamond face shape. Blend the edges with a beauty blender.

Step 19 – Hairline contouring:

To mimic Rapunzel’s low hairline, use the darkest contour color to go over your hairline. This will help create a more natural look than pulling your wig too far down. Be sure to blend the edges for a seamless look.

Step 20 – Eyelashes

Curl the outer corners of your lashes to lift them slightly. Apply mascara to both upper and lower lashes.

Step 21 – False lashes

Use the false lashes mentioned in the video (name provided in the description) to create a dramatic, wide-eyed look. For the underlashes, use Pa Dolly Love Lashes, cutting them into three pieces to make them easier to apply.

Step 22 – Foundation touch-up

Finish applying your full coverage foundation, ensuring a smooth and even appearance.

Step 23 – Quiz answers

The name of Rapunzel’s sidekick chameleon is Pascal (B). The blank in the lyrics “Flower gleam and glow, let your blank shine…” is power (B). The facial feature that they always get wrong in Flynn Rider’s wanted posters is his nose (C).

Step 24 – Final touches

Complete any final adjustments to your makeup, such as blending the contouring around your hairline, and ensure everything is set in place. Don your Rapunzel wig, adjusting it to sit slightly lower than your natural hairline but not too far down.

Step 25 – Contour your nose

Next, you’ll contour your nose using the Mac Eyebrow Pencil in Fling. Start by making your nose look more narrow. To ensure it’s straight, take some foundation onto a brush and wipe it down. Observe the shape of Rapunzel’s nose and try to replicate it. Shade around the triangle and a little bit across the nose using a small brush from the Dingle Hopper Set by Spectrum. Fill in the tip of the nose using a highlighter, and use your finger to blend the edges slightly.

Step 26 – Apply blush

Rapunzel’s cheeks are quite flushed, so for this, you’ll use a paint-themed blush set by Glossier called Cloud Paint in the shades Dawn and Haze. Mix two-thirds pink and one-third orange, then apply the mixture to the apples of your cheeks. Blend it upwards and towards your nose and up the side. Use a beauty blender to blend the blush further and dab a little bit across the nose with the leftover color on the beauty blender.

Step 27 – Add freckles

For Rapunzel’s freckles, mix white and brown from the Wolfe FX Face Paint. Create a watery mixture and dab it on, concentrating the freckles where the contouring is. Blend the freckles using a beauty blender, then apply powder all over to blend all the colors and freckles together.

Step 28 – Fill in your eyebrows

Start by using Urban Decay Brow Blade in Brunette Betty to fill in your eyebrows, creating a lighter color and a slight arch. Then, use the shade Blackout to draw extra eyebrow hairs using the thin tip on the other side for a microblading style. Use Brunette Betty again underneath to connect the dots. Finish by applying Glossier Boy Brow in shade Blonde to keep the eyebrows in place and make them slightly lighter.

Step 29 – Apply lip color

The best lip color match for Rapunzel is Nude Suede Shoes by Nyx. Apply the lip color, then brush your hair.

Step 30 – Detangle your wig (if you’re using one)

If you’re using a long wig, use the Mane ‘n Tail Detangler Spray to help with detangling.


Achieving a Rapunzel-inspired makeup look requires attention to detail and precision, but the end result is worth it.

By following the steps outlined in this guide and watching Stephanie Stokkvik’s tutorial video, you can recreate the look of the beloved Disney character.

From the eyeshadow and contouring to the freckles and lip color, every element is important to create a cohesive look that resembles Rapunzel. With a little practice and patience, you can transform yourself into the fairytale princess and feel like a true Disney heroine.
