Makeup in the Movies- Tim Burton does Alice in Wonderland

Any Tim Burton fans out there? How about Alice in Wonderland?

Talk of the release of a 3D Tim Burton adaptation of Alice in Wonderland swirled around the internet for a very long time, but news of a March 2010 release have just been revealed. The first official promotional images that Disney released really have me excited for this to come out.

What does this have to do with beauty? Well, I am excited not only for the movie itself, but also for the amazing makeup artistry and costume design I am already seeing in these photos.

Have a look at the images of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Mia Wasikowska as Alice, and the stunning Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. I am in awe!

The Mad Hatter- The hair and makeup make him look downright demented, and I love it! Johnny Depp is all demented clown meets crazy homeless person.

The Red Queen, or Queen of Hearts- There is definitely something twisted and sinister about this one. The blue around the eyes and painted on brows gives her a somewhat clownish appearance
The White Queen- Anne Hathaway looks absolutely gorgeous here! I cannot get over the platinum hair, pale glowing skin and blood red lips. Wow

Alice- She looks the picture of innocence, despite the character's age of 17. Looks like they went with a very natural look for her.

Is everyone else as excited as I am?!
