A very merry unbirthday to you!

Alice Through the Looking Glass comes out May 27, so what better way to celebrate than with character-inspired beauty tutorials? (Trust us, you're in for a treat.)

With the help of Priv makeup artist Alison Cristofar, (and Urban Decay's brand-new Alice Through the Looking Glass eye shadow palette, which is available for sale May 1 at urbandecay.com), we created three separate looks you're going to want to have on rotation this summer.

There's a Mad Hatter-inspired smoky eye (white liner is involved), shimmering, dewy skin for when you're feeling au natural like Alice and the Red Queen is about to make blue eye shadow cool again.

Intrigued? Keep scrolling for a breakdown of the three looks.


The Mad Hatter has the craziest eyes around, so here's how to bring that rusty smoky eye to life...

Step 1: Prep your eyelids with eyeshadow primer—Urban Decay has an amazing one.

Step 2: Apply a rose gold color, like Charlotte Tilbury Color Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil in Bronzed Garnet, to your lids and buff it into the creases. With the same color, add some under the eye to create a halo effect. While staying close to your lashline on the top and bottom, apply a deep shimmery red like Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass' "Salazen Grum" for some added color.

Step 3: Line your waterline with a white eyeliner pencil—this will make your eyes look larger and doll-like.

Step 4: Finish with mascara on your top and bottom lashes.


When it comes to Alice, it's all about her glow. And glowing skin starts with moisture and hydration, so that's where you'll begin...

Step 1: Start with a hydrating moisturizer, really any kind will do.

Step 2: Add a glow-enhancing primer, like NARS Light Optimizing Primer, to your entire face.

Step 3: Apply a glowy foundation, like MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation, all over.

Step 4: With a highlighter, apply some to the tops of your cheeks, bridge of your nose, cupid's bow and chin. 

Step 5: Add a bronzer, like Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick, to the top of your cheekbones.

Step 6: Using Urban Decay's Alice Through the Looking Glass palette, apply a bronze eye shadow like "Kingdom" to your eyelids and add a brown like "Chessboard" to the inner crease of both eyes. For some bonus shimmer, apply gold eyeliner to your bottom and inner lashlines.

Step 7: Last to go on is your lip! For a touch of Alice-like sweetness, go for something nude and frosted with a pink tone.


Blue eye shadow is back, but it's not what you think! The Red Queen's might be a touch too much, but this is how it's done cool-girl style...

Step 1: Prep your eyelids with either concealer or eye shadow primer to even out your skin tone.

Step 2: Spray a little water or MAC Fix Plus onto your angled eye shadow brush before you dip it in your shadow. This will make it easier to apply and it means you'll have more control over the application.

Step 3: Dip your brush into Urban Decay Alice Through the Looking Glass Palette's "Wedding Metamorphosis," and apply it as you would liner when you're going for a cat-eye shape.

Step 4: Add mascara on your top and bottom lashes.

Step 5: Using a tinted balm, add a light wash of red to your lips.
