Film adaptations of classic childhood stories like 'Jack and the Beanstalk' and 'Hansel and Gretel,' are bringing gorgeous fantasy makeup looks into real life. These stories have been around for a long time and depicted countless times in storybooks and movies, but live-action adaptations bring a new dimension to storytelling.

While the fantastical makeup looks worn by models and actors in editorials and film are too over-the-top for the average person to pull off in their daily lives, cosmetics inspired by coloring of fairy tale characters bring make these more palatable.

With so many types of characters to source inspiration from, there is an endless combination of color pairings that range from colors as pure and sweet as the song in the heart of a Disney princess to the dark as the intentions of an evil queen.
