I am really excited about May’s instalment in my Disney Villains makeup series. This is by far the most requested makeup tutorial I’ve ever recorded. When I asked you all to tell me which Disney Villain you most wanted me to draw my inspiration from next, the response was overwhelming. It seems that you all love to hate Maleficent.
I was so pleased that you were all keen to see a Maleficent tutorial. I actually found this one of the easiest looks to design. Maleficent’s actual makeup is rather wearable, so I might do a true-to-life Maleficent post in the future if you’d be interested. Coming up with a design based on her look was so much fun. She has a great combination of colours in her outfit: green, purple, pink and black and I was really looking forward to blending these colours into a makeup look.
I stuck to Maleficent’s signature colours of light green and purple. I really wanted to incorporate the shape of her horns into the look, so I used a winged shape to highlight the eyes. I layered a few different shades of green and purple to get this look. I find that layering different shades in this way gives the look a bit more dimension and adds drama.
If you’d like to have a go at recreating this look yourself, here is the video showing you how I did it.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed this tutorial. If you’d like to see the videos that I’ve done in the past, you can find them here:
Also, If you’d like to request a tutorial, or suggest a villain to star in next month’s video, please let me know.
