Halloween How-To: Evil Queen

“Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” Ever since Disney recreated the classic Grimm Brother’s fairy tale for the big screen in 1937 we’ve been enchanted by the magic mirror, seven dwarves and Snow White. The recent adaptation starring Charlize Theron as the stunning but wicked queen is our inspiration for this hauntingly beautiful Halloween look.
