This Normal Guy's Disney Princess Makeup Is Seriously Magical

Our favorite childhood characters have come to life through this makeup artist's Instagram, and it's insanely impressive.

Many young children dream of being Cinderella when they grow up, but 22-year-old makeup artist Richard Schaefer gets to truly live that dream. He uses real Disney magic to cosplay nearly every Disney princess and showcases his transformations on his Instagram, @theofficialariel.


Let's turn Paris upside down ✨🔮✨

While the fashion design student from California occasionally uses his talents to become Disney princesses and villains, his true passion lies in bringing to life the leading ladies, with Ariel being his favorite fish in the sea.


Mildred? Diana? Rachel? It's Ariel? That's kinda pretty ❤️🙃❤ ️#KINDAPRETTY #KINDA #onlykinda #rude

Schaefer's striking collection of 40 costumes and 30 wigs are obviously a huge help in his makeovers. However, it's the freelance makeup artist's mastery of the doe-eyed look that truly sells the entire transformation. His Instagram is full of him as incredible Disney-look-alikes, and one look at his page will leave you with just one question: Can he please come teach us?


💛🐵💛 Have a great day everyone 💛🙊💛
