Disney Villains makeup series: Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove.

I can’t believe that this is the final Disney Villains makeup tutorial for 2013.  Where did this year go?  It feels like just yesterday that I was trying to create the perfect graphic eyeliner for my Jafar look, and now it’s December.

This month, I’m taking my inspiration from Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove.  Yzma isn’t one of the most well-known villains, but she is one of my favourites.  I like her because she reminds me of an old woman who was very glamorous and gorgeous when she was young, and has always kept her passion for fashion.  There are just some women who never succumb to the tracksuits-and-jeans look and keep wearing elaborate costume jewellery, turbans and wild eyeshadow until the day they die.  And Yzma is one of them.  She’s also wildly theatrical and over-uses the word “brilliant” which I find endearing.

Yzma’s appearance is similar in many ways to Cruella De Vil.  She has a similar angular frame and sharp features.

For this look, I used a palette of different shades of purple and a splash of blue.  In the film, shades of purple are reserved for Yzma, as it is said to represent madness.  She is almost always shown wearing shades of blue, black and purple.

See you next year!  As always, if you’d like to request a villain for me to interpret, please feel free to let me know.

  1. Wow it’s been a while since i’ve seen that movie, I had to Google Yzma. Lovely work on incorporating her colors, but mostly you’re inspiring me with that bottom liner.. i’m trying that this week. I’d love to see you do a Kaa inspired look, all hypnotic.
