Using these makeup tutorials you can learn how to look like your favorite character from 1994's animated musical film The Lion King.

The Lion King went on to earn Academy Awards and Golden Globes and was also adapted into a popular Broadway production in 1997.

The movie tells the story of Simba, son of King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi, and how he learned what it means to be king and how he had to run away from home in order to find out who he really was. One the main themes throughout is the power of the circle of life which also happens to be one of Elton John's main hit songs from the movie.

Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance, and respect all the creatures from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.
