With her bold red lips, cutting cheek bones and fierce look, it’s no surprise that Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent has become a Disney style icon.
Ahead of Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, we’ve partnered with M.A.C cosmetics for a series of makeup tutorials inspired by the film’s three female leads: Maleficent, Aurora and Queen Ingrith.
In this tutorial M.A.C makeup artist Lily Hampton takes us through how to get the legendary villain’s signature look. Top tip? Be fearless.
Get the look:
1. First things first, prep your skin with hydrating spray Fix Plus.
2. Apply a light weight foundation and add a small amount of concealer only on the areas of the face that need more coverage.
Using a powder, create a line from the top of your ear to the corner of your mouth and blend. Blend right into the hair line. “Keep building up the line and keep blending it.”
“Create that line from the top of your ear, down to the corner of your mouth. You want to stop the line almost in line with your iris. The most depth you want is up near the hairline, near the ear, just make sure it’s blending in to the hairline.”
Top tip: The key to contouring is blending
Using a dark eyeshadow, create a structured brow. “I went slightly darker with the eyeshadows to get a little more drama.”
5. Eye shadow
For the eyes, start with an eyeshadow primer. “Because we’re using quite bright eye shadows and we really want to get that colour payoff, I started out with a Paint Pot from mac. It’s crease proof, water resistant and smudge proof, so it’s going to hold everything on. But it’s going to make the eyeshadows more vibrant and stand out.”
Products: To get the look use M.A.C’s Dark Room for the purple and Kelly for the green.
Top tip: Don’t be afraid of colour
Start with M.A.C’s Prep and Prime lip primer. This prevents your lipstick from bleeding and feathering as well as holding the lipstick on for longer.
Use Cherry Red lip pencil from M.A.C to create that perfect lip line. “You need a steady hand so try putting your elbow down on something to get that line.”
Fill in with M.A.C’s Russian Red lipstick.
Top tip: Try overdrawing your lips to get a fuller look
“Overdrawing your lips means you come out over your natural lip to make them look a little bit more plump. Overdraw only a millimeter. You don’t want to go any more than a millimeter. Keep it as tight to your natural lip line, but just that tiny bit over it to give it volume.”
