Disney princesses will always have a soft spot in our hearts, but let’s be honest: they’re a little outdated. Nowadays, millennials and women of Generation X aren’t walking around in ballroom gowns with perfectly coiffed up-dos and a prince on their arm. Today’s woman is empowered, chic, and expressive in her sense of style and attitude. And that’s exactly how TikTok artist “Yudie” has been interpreting them for her 2020 makeovers.
Here are Disney princesses reimagined with a a modern-day “glow up” by 29-year-old artist Yudelmis “Yudie” San Emeterio, an artist with a truly breathtaking imagination.
Yudie used to be a specimen processor at a private lab, but followed her dreams to be an artist instead. Now, she’s finishing up an art degree, and has taken to the popular social media platform TikTok to publish her own complications, after being inspired by the Disney character makeovers of other artists.
With so many people giving these princesses their own transformations, we have to say that we absolutely adore Yudie’s take and relate to these women like never before. She had her own distinct perspective but tried to keep the transformation’s texture and style to the original art, which made it even more realistic.
By carefully altering the hair, makeup, and clothing of Belle, for instance, she turns from a modest maiden in a field to queen with flawless eyebrows, some well-placed highlights, and a sleeveless dress that makes her look like a total babe.
We love how she uses videos to showcase her art, since we get to see the editing changes that she makes in real-time, further inspiring us to create our own, and see that making such beautiful art is in fact attainable. Even Princess Jasmine turns into a smoldering babe with ease here.
