Each month I create a makeup look that draws inspiration from a Disney villain. This month, I’m taking a lead from Mother Gothel from Tangled.
Mother Gothel is a vain, youth-obsessed witch who kidnaps Rapunzel when she realises that she has magical powers that will help her to stay young. Then she locks her in a tower and hurls passive-aggressive taunts in her direction. She’s a truly charming character! (Sarcasm alert!)
For this look, I chose to pair a classic smokey eye with a mulberry-toned lip. I decided to do the eye makeup in shades of grey and black because they reminded me of Mother Gothel’s hair. Her hair is usually a wildly curly raven mane, but when she begins to age streaks of grey begin to creep into it. I loved the salt-and-pepper colouring of her aging hair, and I felt that a smokey eye was a great way to incorporate that into this look.
The mulberry lip is a nod to Mother Gothel’s dress, which is a rich plum shade. The lipstick I used for this look is Midnight Rose from Avon.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.
